Fab place to visit the long bar with peanut shells every where was fun and food was excellent. Singapore sling a must and was very enjoyable. Not the cheapest place in Singapore but its raffles. Went into reception of hotel an took pic WOW! When I win the lottery I want to come back and stay. Worth a visit 100%

Small overpriced establishments offering items you probably do not want at prices you would probably prefer not to pay. However it is a very pleasant walk and the garden is exceptionally beautiful, take a few minutes to just sit, wonderful! If you fancy a drink, use the garden bar. If you want a Singapore sling, don't buy it here, in my view it will not be original, go to the long bar. (separate review)

There are plenty of touristy shops here, all at sky high prices; they are easily 3 times more expensive. I wonder why do people go there to buy when they can easily buy from much cheaper option such at those shophouses at Chinatown or at nearby shopping complexes such as People Park Complex or Pearl Centre? Lucky Plaza at Orchard Road is another value-for-money place. I went to this arcade without buying a single thing but my Japanese friend did, because it was "highly recommended" in her guide book.

The toilet is also located far away, depending on where you were, so if your legs were tired from a day of walking, be prepared to walk some distance to the loo.

Went to Long bar for Singapore sling. It is tourist trap and over priced but worth the experience to see the Raffles hotel. Tourists cannot go inside the actual hotel. Have the photo to show everyone. Like planet Hollywood - you visit once:)
