Singapore Botanical gardens

My day started early, meeting ex-colleague and my frequent visit in Singapore, June, to go and see Avengers, Infinity War. On her recommendation we went to Shaw Lido, which has some great screens.

Sitting outside after lunch, it took me a while to notice the ornament on display. It had a steady queue of people wandering up to take photos, but I found a moment.

Having walked the few kms to the Lido, I wasn’t too far from the Botanical gardens so, as the clouds cleared to leave a bright, sunny and hot day, I walked up there to have a look round. It’s a large area, with a learning forest, orchid display, marketplace and so on. Lots of people there, but enough space to leave it uncrowded.

Heading home, I decided against the 5km+ walk and hopped on the MRT to visit the National Library and read some Marvel. Also recommended.
