Visited Raffles for High Tea and then a few Slings in the Long Bar. High Tea is a must, but you have to make sure you contact Raffles prior to your trip to reserve a spot ! There is no way you will get a table without a reservation. I have heard the lunch is very good and substantial as... More

Clean mall with every shop you can imagine. Keeps you out of the heat and a way to get you from places.

Last day in Singapore was spent at Raffles Hotel for High-tea. I was a lovely high tea so many different options for food. The service was excellent and the staff was lovely and prompt. Make sure to book ahead as it does get busy.

Enjoyed our stroll through Raffles and our coffee break very much. Really gave you a sense of being thrown back in time. The memorabilia was first class!

We had high tea as part of a tour which included a river boat ride. There was a selection of sandwiches and cakes on the table, as well as an excellent buffet of hot food, scones and cakes. Tea and coffee included, champagne was extra. The food was delicious and the service and surrounds first class. Highly recommended.
