Default Singapore suggestions?

We will be arriving at Singapore at the end of March 2011 aboard the HAL Volendam. The ship docks at 2:00 PM and we have an overnight onboard, then we are staying one night before flying home.

I am interested in taking pictures and have decided to visit the botanical gdns, after disembarking the ship on day two. I am however looking for suggestions as to what to do on our arrival date. With it docking at 2:00 PM I don't see us having a great deal of daylight hours to explore that day. Can anyone suggest things to do fairly close to the ship. Maybe a nice marina area, or qauint streets, or ......

Many thanks.

I would take the night time safari your first night. The botanical gardens are a must. I would also take a general tour. I would defnitely stop at Raffles for a Singapore Sling.

Singapore is fantastic....you will enjoy it.

I agree Sigapore is one of the most beautiful country in Asia and it has many attractive and beautiful places and has a well developed tourism industry. Shopping area is located in the district of Orchard Road and have several shopping centers, this area also has many hotels, and is considered by many as the tourism center of Singapore.

I am going to be doing dry dock in Singapore for 5 weeks from October to early November. To anyone that has been, or has had dry dock there, are there any recommendations of things to do or see. I would muchly appreciate it... as dry dock can be long and boring, but the plus side is we get to explore and stay in one place!!!!
