The heat and humidity slapped me in the face as soon as I walked outside the airport. Gravid clouds massed on the horizon.
The afternoon had begun and tomorrow morning I had to leave. Any trip begins and ends at the airport, and were I completely lazy I could spend the entire time here. Singapore Airport boasts endless shops, restaurants, a movie cinema, beauty salons, spas, a fitness centre, a swimming pool, orchid and butterfly gardens – even a dedicated area for sleeping (the airport was recently voted Best in the World for sleeping. Strange, but true).
Bravely, I left these wonders behind and ventured out to find a few highlights of the city.
