We checked out and left our baggage at the hotel, before heading next door to the cafe for toast with ham, egg and cheese.
We headed back around to Marina Sands to have a look at the shopping centre and the plaza area where we had watched the second set of lights from the night before.
Then we headed across to Gardens by the Bay again to see more in the daylight. The tree walk still wasn't open due to risk of storm, but we enjoyed some more of the gardens before finding ourselves some Biryani for lunch followed by soft serve.
We had a chance to look a bit more at the helix bridge and stadium on the water's edge before we caught the train out to the botanic gardens.
We had been told that the botanic gardens were good, and we saw only a part of them but were very impressed. There were some amazing colours of foliage as well as the famous orchids, other flowers and spice plants.
We particularly enjoyed watching a squirrel obtaining palm nuts and eating them,
the monitors which wander the gardens
, the turtles which bob out of the water
, the beautiful water lilies
And then there were all the other little delights that we found along the way... these are just a few of them.
There were whole sections of the botanical gardens that we didn't manage to cover- we could easily have taken all day there. But we were out of time, so we headed back on the train, stopping at Chinatown for one last meal.
We picked up our bags from the hotel, and boarded the train for the airport, arriving in plenty of time for our late flight home. Goodbye Singapore
