Singapore has its version of the London Eye, so I felt almost obliged to try it. Also gave me the opportunity/excuse to use the Helix Bridge. In all honesty I preferred the bridge.
Apart from being quite pricey, and the glass not being very clean, I had to share my pod with a young Indian family - father wandering around trying to video everything while his three small children were playing chase around the bench seats in the middle. Grr.

Now I was attempting to get to the National Art Gallery to finish off my stay in Singapore and to do so passed by the Padang, another Colonial remnant. Its a bit of open ground, now used for cricket and football but once was the sort of place you perambulated. Of course it now has a very different backdrop!
