We arrived home from Singapore last month but so many photos to sift through and save for a photo book and blog. On the last day we had free time. Our friends and direct neighbours, Sue and Trevor and us teamed up to go sight seeing. Unfortunately, it was raining but we still went to walk the Henderson's Wave Bridge. It's a wavy bridge spanning a forest and we had great views of the city.

When we arrived at Sentosa Island we caught a free bus which takes you all around the island. There are stops along the way where you can visit the beaches or the many attractions including amusement parks and a huge casino.
We stopped for a coffee and a chat with some locals.
In the bus we passed the huge Merlion. The Merlion is Singapore's icon. It has a lion's head and a fish body. Merlion means 'sea lion' and represents Singapore's origin as a fishing village when it was called Tamasek which means 'sea town' and its original name Singapura meaning 'lion city.' The original sculpture of the merlion is in Marina Bay but this huge 37 metre tall replica on Sentosa was made by an Australian artist, James Martin.
