The tropical garden style courtyard of Raffles Hotel, a colonial style hotel dating back to 1887. Its founders are Armenians, the Sarkies Brothers, and it's named after the founder of modern Singapore, Sir Stamford Raffles.
A close-up look at one of the coconut palm trees dotting the courtyard, and the leafy ornamental detail on its pillars.
An old style fountain, one of a few on its grounds ...
Seah Street Deli, a New York style delicatessen serving American sandwiches, entrées and salads, just one of the dining options in the hotel.
Tailored dress, bag and shoes made by a former dressmaker who had a shop in the hotel in the 1900s, on display at the Raffles Museum.
The museum displays memorabilia and old photographs and artefacts and is free to all visitors. Apart from the museum, there's also a hotel shop on the ground selling interesting souvenirs and books that's worth a visit.
The Raffles Culinary Academy runs cooking and lifestyle classes by award-winning executive chefs. Dishes are Asian, international and fusion.
A small garden is tucked away in one of the recesses of the hotel's compound.
Isn't this heliconia rostrata growing amongst the foliage at the hotel lovely?
That's my World
