Kayaking with Monkeys!

A travel blog entry by suzieq88


... it seemed they’d decided not to make a guest appearance. However, there was plenty other wildlife to keep us entertained, including turtles that swam alongside our kayaks and some amazing electric blue and blood red dragonflies that were bopping around. In the end, I spent about ten minutes trying to get a good photograph of one which is really rather difficult when you’re in a kayak that decides not to sit still, rather moves towards the subject you’re trying to ...

... as he put it in a corner and told us to stand in line for check in. He comes back moments later with a luggage ticket (thank god) and tells us our luggage will be in our rooms shortly. Josh and I proceeded up to our room on the 44th floor and got settled in. It was then time to check out the city and grab some tea.
Aaaaaaaaanddddd...... we went to McDonalds, Big mistake. I got a cup of corn (not bad), a McChicken (terrible), and a cold milo (don't even wanna go there!) - ...

The City from the Future

A travel blog entry by filipmontberg


... us. The view was absolutely insane, you could see the whole harbor area and the club itself was really nice too. The music was quite loungy so you could actually talk. After a while it started filling up and in the end it almost seemed more like a house party than a night club which was nice for me as I was a bit sick. We had a great night there but didn't stay to late.

The next day we went down to orchard and walked around in the malls a little bit. We went in to the ...

Things are starting to come together.

... see it, rich white people riding ****** old motorbikes down bumpy and dusty dirt tracks was quite surprising. The local kids showed great enthusiasm and shouted 'hello’ and chased our bikes as we rode past. It was an amazing experience and worth the Hand-arm Vibration Syndrome and sore bottoms it left us with.

My workload increased in April and was very mixed. I assisted foreign entities on financing regulation in ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Grand Central Singapore

    Very Common


    Not really our type of hotel.

    Lobby was not grand and the staff are kinda rude and unattentive. The room that we got was at the 8th floor thinking that the rooms in the higher floors were better. It was not really what we expected. The room is too old looking and the bathroom super dooper really needs renovation. Breakfast served every morning is always the same, no variety. The dining area was also crowded.

    Only good about this hotel is its location. Near Orchard Road and near food courts and restaus. Definitely for budget travellers. :)



    Hotel was recommended and booked for us by the excellent visitor centre on Orchard road. The Grand Central is appalling, the service surly, the reception rude and the room dirty. The bathroom was filthy and sub standard. The only plus point is the position.

    Really central


    January 2006 we stayed at Hotel Grand Central for 3 nights while visiting Singapore. The best thing I can say about this hotel is the location.It is on Orchid Road and very economical. Although the staff don't smile,the breakfast is poor,the rooms have no charm,the location and the price makes this hotel worth staying.

    Not up to expected standards


    This hotel definitely did not live up to our expectations.

    The hotel room was very old, dated, and worn.

    The Bathroom was old and only just acceptable.

    We were very disappointed to find the bed covers and the carpet to be soiled.

    The breakfast arrangements definitely were not satisfactory - the selection of food was reasonable, but the quality of the food was very poor. The breakfast eating area was very crowded and once you found a seat you had to endure the mess left by the previous people.

    The room service was very good and the staff quite friendly.

    Stay away


    Probably the most filthy and disgusting hotel I ever stayed in - even the most budget hotels in Central Africa look good in comparison. The bathroom was dirty, full of mold and with overflowing pipe system. The room was just as dirty with stains all over the carpet. Quite frankly, you are better off camping than staying in that place.

    What a Joke!


    My first visit to Singapore , ok check in was alright got shown to room, all downhill, window was broken, fridge did not work, remote for tele was broken, the air conditioning was barely working lots of noise but not effecient. On asking for a safety deposit box we were told we checked in too late and some people had taken two boxes for their jewellery, with the very unsavoury people that we had seen,made me feel very wealthy (even though I,m not). We were told to hang around next day until someone checked out by deputy manager(very rude) we were three nights in Singapore did not want to waste a day waiting for somebody to check out). Anyway deputy manager told us hotel was quite safe to leave, we walked to bar across the road, lets just say that ladies of the night parade up and down this hotel every night (I will say no more.)

    Travelers Beware!


    This hotel is exactly the opposite of what Singapore is! It's old, very unhygienic and the bathroom is quite filthy. Better clarify with your travel agent before you book into this hotel.

    Worst hotel ever!!!


    Everything about this hotel is bad. Except for the location. I wouldn't say price because it's relatively cheap. You get what you paid for. Really dirty, old, shabby room. I almost cried in disappointment when we saw our room. The mattresses have stains, bed is very uncomfortable. The bathroom had seen its better days. Yellowish tiles, cracked watercloset, tired towels.
