High tea and Singapore slings at the Raffles Hotel

Well it had to be done really. The promise of a decent cup of tea and some delicious cakes was too much, as well as the opportunity to try the Singapore Sling at the place where it was created, and we headed off to the Raffles Hotel for High Tea. On the way, we stopped to take a look at the statue of Mr Raffles himself and also for a quick visit to the Asian Civilisations museum.

High Tea consisted of tea (obviously), cakes and crustless sandwiches as well as a hot buffet. We decided to have a Singapore Sling with ours, not exactly traditional, but it was the last  day of our trip afterall.

After High Tea, we did a short boat trip on the river before returning to the hotel to prepare to be transferred to the airport.

So that’s it. It’s all over. Back to reality and English weather tomorrow. Boo Hoo.
