We moved to this hotel from the Hong Ping and what sold it was the amazing view from the room on the 16th floor. The hotel was nice and of a similar standard to a 3 star hotel at home (UK) The service however was bad, staff were very ignorant and in no way wanted to help with anything! Also the rooms have WIFI at a shocking charge of 15RM per 24 hours (about £3) It's free in the lobby, although logs you out about every 5 mins...PAIN!

... and a bigger crowd and apparently this venue "is hers".
It was a nice venue for a concert. The botanical gardens, it's an old quarry, so the back drop to the stage was a sheer cliff and surrounded by rain forest.
It was good. I didn't know any of the bands or what they were singing. Still, the music was good. It was fun and something you don't get to do every ...
Then we took the hotel water taxi across to their sister complex, Straits Quays. Luckily we mainly went for the boat ride which was great and gave us a chance to see the hotel from the water because there wasn't really much to see or do at Straits Quays! We weren't really having a very successful day. The Quays is a big new complex which will eventually ...
... being preserved. We now find ourselves in Armenia street. Here one of the most famous and popular pieces of street art can be found. Kids on a bicycle. The Lithuanian artist, Ernest Zacharevic uses real props and paint to create these really great pieces of art. As we make our way along Armenia street we come over all cultured and go and see a batik art exhibition. Very impressive too, it is hard to understand the amount of work that goes in to each one. We admire more of ...
