Back in Singapore - Last Day of the Cruise

Singapore - walking tour through the city - a short video.
Disembarkation was smooth and well organised. As you disembark you clear customs and immigrations. We found our cases very quickly. 
As we cleared customs we delivered our suitcases for storage and took a taxi from the cruise terminal into Singapore city - was dropped at Raffel hotel - and from there we went along Bridge Road to Little Arabia - here we went through some very picturesque streets towards Serangoon Road and a very colorful Little India with shops, markets and restaurants.
We walked back toward the city center down to Singapore River - fascinating to see how old meets new. We ate lunch at a Chinese restaurant on the quay at Singapore River. 
From here along South Bridge Road to China Town - again a very picturesque area with busy people.
From China town we went up to the modern shopping areas along Orchard Road - a great contrast to the fields in Little India and China Town.
Finally back to the Marina Bay Cruise terminal to pick up our luggage, change our close and prepare for the long flights back home.
From the cruise terminal we took a taxi to the airport.
