While hotel is under repair works, the Raffles shop and the bar are still open. Get a Singapore sling, their favorite drink, in this historical hotel who's name come from the founder of Singapore, Sir Raflles.

The building was under repair works so we didn't really get to check it out properly. Also the shopping arcade no longer available means it's only the gift shop and bar that's remaining. We went to the gift shop which is reasonably priced and the...More
