Ironically, this is the least exciting of this story's international destinations; it just made sense for the plot to lead there and end there.


Views of the downtown high-rises

Little did I know, when I was taking a balloon ride off this lawn in mid-2007, that I would be writing about the buildings in this view six years later. The tallest tower directly ahead is the Swissotel; the low sprawling building in front of it with the terracotta roofs is the Raffles.You can just see the edge of one of the Suntec towers on the left-hand side - I believe that one is Five, the shorter, squat-ter one.

The famous Raffles Hotel, where they finally get to stay toward the end

Fitting vignettes of Singapore's image; a blend of modern glass-and-concrete and Hindu temples

Typical low-rise streets, a real riot of colour

From Indian to Chinese - the next most common religious structures are Buddhist.

A long sequence of sunset pictures taken in succession from the exact same spot, the Mount Faber observation deck. I wanted to make a gif but am not sure if it would crash people's computers. You can get the same effect if you save the ten after the next one and click through them in a picture viewer.

Downtown Singapore later at night. The strange-looking building with the blue roof is one of a pair, and arts and culture centre IIRC, nicknamed Pineapple.

...and that's it. I hope it was fun reading and viewing :)
