Hello, how are you? I hope November is treating you well. One of my favourite things about November is that Christmas festivities and decorations start popping up everywhere in preparation for my favourite time of the year! :)
*UPDATE: As of October 2017, please take note that after some upgrading, there is now a new multimedia show that is not shown in my photos below and admission is no longer free. Now one admission ticket is redeemable with spending of S$20 in Ion Orchard shopping mall. See the web page link below for all the necessary info.)
Sharing something from Singapore today: a FREE observation deck viewing experience located in Orchard Road, something which I can’t believe I never knew about! I found out about it earlier this summer, while flipping through those free magazines they mail to you and I chanced upon an article called “10 free things to do in Singapore” or something along those lines.
I went to two things on that list by the way, this and the water light show at Marina Bay Sands. LOL, five years away from the country and I’ve turned into a tourist! ;) Anyway, touristy or not, I really enjoyed the experience and I wanted to share these city views overlooking Singapore. :)
As this observation deck is located inside Ion Orchard shopping mall (on the 55th floor), which is located in the central Singapore area, the views offered here consisted mostly of Orchard Road and central Singapore. That’s fine by me, because it’s my favourite part of the city. :)
If you look closely or zoom in to the photos below, you can spot Marina Bay Sands, the ArtScience Museum, Esplanade and the ferris wheel in the distance!
