This should be a very interesting picture. Can you tell us where it was taken. Name the place and city and country if you can. Come on guess, you may get it right. I hope you can. Good luck.

No clue what or where but it is very interesting.

I'll guess just the country as being China. Just by virtue of my guess means for all you other "guessers" out there, it's probably Maine!

Long shot and probably way off the mark but here goes. Rio De Janeiro at Carnivale?

Can't say what or city but maybe Cambodia or Vietman?

I definitely have to say at least an Asian country.

I agree Laura, that's why I don't winter there!

Seriously, the reason why I said Maine (tongue in cheek) is simply because the plant and its immediate surroundings appear to be asian or southeast asian. But my track record at this is so abysmal, it probably will turn out to be some place no one even considered and in my case, that was Maine.

You are right! No one would ever think Maine. I love Maine dearly but I doubt that is the place. My guess is way off the mark also as I have absolutely no idea as to where that picture was taken.

We were on board the Regal Princess when we visited SINGAPORE in 2002. These pictures were taken in the TIGER BALM Gardens in the city. The Original Tiger Balm gardens are in Hong Kong. The owner or builder also constructed one in Singapore.

We were touring with the Asst Cruise Director Mike with his lovely wife Natania.

This cruise for for 72 days 4 cruises back to back.

Here is another picture you may enjoy.

While 4 back to back cruises that sounds wonderful. Great pictures. I was close, sort of, isn't English the official language in Singapore? So I got the language right.
