I visited Singapore for the first time in three and a half years. Actually, I used to live in Singapore for one and a half year to attend a business school. A reunion was held in Singapore, so that’s why I came back there. This times, I spent about a week going around Singapore to take as many photos as possible. In this article, I will write about Lau Pa Sat and night view of Fullerton Hotel as part of Day 6.

Following the previous post (hopping museums in Singapore), I will walk around Raffles Place on the 6th day in the evening.
Dinner at Lau Pa Sat
To begin with, I visited Lau Pa Sat to have an early dinner.
Lau Pa Sat used to be a fish market (Telok Ayer Market) built in 1838 and was turned to be a hawker center during 1970s.
It was a Victorian building with octagon-shaped roofs.
In the building.
Lau Pa Sat was renovated in 2014, so it was quite new.
Just for your information, Lau Pa Sat is managed by Kopitiam.
There are a variety of stalls at Lau Pa Sat and I chose “Seng Kee Local Delights”.
I ordered Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee, which was the signature menu of the stall.
From Lau Pa Sat to Fullerton Hotel
After dinner, I left Lau Pa Sat for Fullerton Hotel. Since Raffles Place was the financial district in Singapore, there were lots of office buildings around here.
In front of Fullerton Bay Hotel.
Night view of Fullerton Hotel
Now I arrived at Fullerton Hotel. I visited Fullerton Hotel on the first day (see the related article), but I would like to take photos of Fullerton Hotel in the evening, so I revisited it.
First, at the back of the hotel.
Near Merlion Park.
When turning back, I found Esplanade.
View from the Anderson Bridge, which was located in the east side of Fullerton Hotel.
In front of the hotel entrance.
View from the Cavenagh Bridge, which was located in the west side of Fullerton Hotel.
To the west of Fullerton Hotel
I left Fullerton Hotel and moved to the west along the Singapore River.
There were seevral office buildings around here and Boat Quay was over there.
View from the opposite side.
The same angle with trajectory of river cruise ship.
Sir Stamford Raffles landing Site.
Then, I left Raffles Place and went back to the hotel.
The final photo was taken at Bugis, which was near the hotel.
That’s it for the article about Lau Pa Sat and night view of Fullerton Hotel as part of Day 6.
Lau Pa Sat is one of the most famous Hawler centers in Singapore and it is often referred to in the guide books along with Maxwell Food Center in Chinatown (see the related article). Both hawker centers have their own features, but for tourists who visit Singapore for the first time, I would recommend Lau Pa Sat, since Lau Pa Sat is cleaner and each stall in Lau Pa Sat has menus with photos.
Regarding Fullerton Hotel, if you walk to the west along the Singapore River, you will reach Clarke Quay (see the related article) while if you walk to the east, you will reach Merlion Park (see the related article: part1, part2). So, it would be a good idea to visit these places along with Fullerton Hotel 🙂
In the next article, I will write about S.E.A. Aquarium in Sentosa Island as part of Day 7.
