Have had a trawl through the forum and picked up lots of info.
We are visiting singapore 4th-7th Feb and are staying at the Orchard Hotel Have never been before although my husband was here for a few years as a very young child. He lived in what was then Changi village - around 1955 - and thinks he lived on Mansel or manfield road. The strongest memory he has is - he thinks- the tiger balm gardens which we plan to see so any information on that would be appreciated. He would like to revisit Changi. Our flight out is at 20 past midnight on morning of 8th. We thought that on our last day we would check out of the hotel, take our bags to airport left luggage and then take a taxi to Changi. However, it doesn't seem to crop up in suggested must do lists. Would really appreciate any info about the area and what may remain of what was there in the mid 1950s.
My second question is about getting from the airport to our hotel - is the airport shuttle bus the best option - 2 adults four suitcases -
