One iconic edifice in Singapore is the Raffles Hotel. It's architectural style is reminiscent of Singapore's colonial past.
When one strides along its corridors, it feels like your own home. The courtyard provide spaces for socialization and the greeneries a place to relax amidst the hustle and bustle of the city-state.
There are a lot of shops in the hotel ranging from art shop, antique shop, souvenir shop, fashion and accessories shops.

me of Alabang Town Center.

This hotel aside from a heritage landmark is also the home of iconic Singapore Sling concocted in its Long Bar by Ngiam Tong Boon.

I always long for Sunday afternoons having coffee or Singapore sling in this hotel. It is a time well spent for one's enjoyment.
