Interesting colourful building

The building is stark and refreshingly very different with its colourful panes. It was a former police station now converted to its present avatar !

Singapore is great! But one time we accidentally let out or paper lantern when the wind was blowing, so it did not light up. But the Government hotels are really nice!

The buildings have been changed into wonderful art exhibition areas... More

I find this section a bit confusing. City Hall is the name of a major MRT station next to St.Andrew's Church. It is also the name of a major shopping-mall called City Hall Mall. By extension it is also the name of the whole area that includes Riverside. But first of all City Hall is a national landmark located on... More

There's many food shops in the City Hall and clothing shops as well. It's all underground so it's a good place to stroll and eat. Personally it's a bit far if you're transitting in Singapore for a few hours (getting out of airport and to go to City Hall) but it took us half hour to get there, but only... More
