Inspirational Sights

Hello All,

I've been off the blogosphere on a fantastic and much needed holiday!  I was lucky enough to go O.S. with my family to Asia and it really was so much fun!

Our first week we spent in Singapore and the standout on the skyline was the Marina Bay Sands Hotel.  I just couldn't stop taking photos of it!

The resort was designed by Moshe Safdie Architects and includes the striking Lotus shaped ArtScience Museum.
There is a fantastic view of Singapore from the 57th floor (we had breakfast in the Skybar) and of the newly completed Gardens by the Bay.

Guests can enjoy the amazing infinity edge pool
 There was also the classically English Raffles Hotel, with its colonial style quite a contrast to modern Singapore. 

Esplanade - Theatres by the Bay houses a concert hall and theatre. The aluminium sunshades give these buildings and unique look which is known as "The Durians" to locals as it resembles the durian tropical fruit.

Next stop was Phuket, and we were lucky enough to stumble upon a stunning restaurant on Kalim Beach called The White Box.  Great food, stunning restaurant, views and lovely people working at the restaurant, what more could you want on holidays!

After a relaxing week of swimming and sunshine it was off to the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong.  The stunning skyline radiantly lit by night is a spectacular sight!
