Raffles is the definition of English Colonialism in the far east and as such no trip to Singpore is complete without a vist to Raffles. the forecourt is about as close as most people get to the place these days other than the long bar which is now out the back in the extension. Dissapointly we were unable to view... More

Anyone and everyone visiting Singapore is required to visit Raffles to sample the very enjoyable 'Sling' not necessarily cheap but worth a try!!

Raffles itself has been rebuilt and enjoys a return to the past of ladies and gentlemen Enjoying afternoon tea and no jeans allowed. The shops are opulent and the jewellery is fabulous and service is superb . Singapore Sling was not to my taste but the Raffles fruit punch in the garden bar was fab.

It may be a tad pricey to stay at but Raffles has to be visited when you visit Singapore. It's the ultimate Singapore experience having a drink in the bar and seeing the colonial mementos on display in museum

The highlight in the Arcade is the bar where visitors by the seeming hundreds venture in order to enjoy a Singapore Sling. The room can get very crowded as people try to drink up the atmosphere and imagine what things were like in the Colonial days before the War. Maybe nostalgia for some, but a curiosity to the new comers.... More

There's hardly any shops here, unless you are looking to buy a leica or an overpriced diamond ring, you would likely not find anything here. Luckily the neighbouring mall, raffles city, offers a ton of mid range and high street clothing and accessories. Perfect when you are on the job and have a 2-hour lunch/shopping break :)
