“Landmark of Singapore history”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

While not an absolute must, a visit of the venerable Raffles Hotel and its grounds is an enjoyable undertaking The shopping arcade is interesting to browse through, whereas the hotel gift shop has a great selection of Raffles and Singapore souvenirs. The restaurant in the atrium garden is an outdoor delight. Located in the center of the city, the Raffles Hotel makes for an interesting short interlude, possibly enriched by one's first Singapore Sling enjoyed in the Raffles bar.

“Sling over to Raffles”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Another one on the list is to have a Singapore Sling at the Raffles Hotel Long Bar. Great choice of cocktails but frankly you have to have a Singapore Sling because this is where it came from. Raffles is steeped in history and the Long Bar is full of atmosphere. Don't forget to check it out.

“Worth it if wandering past ...”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

This isn't worth a special trip .... but sooner or later you'll walk past. It's worthwhile having a wander even if you don't have a Singapore Sling.

This building is really amazing, it bring you to another age.
When you visit it you can believe travelling to the past.
Head to the bar and have a Singapore Sling.
