While the building is under construction the Long Bar is still open and the Singapore Slings are great along with the bags of peanuts still in the shell!

A trip to Singapore wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Raffles for a Singapore Sling. However, the hotel itself is still under refurbishment so anyone hoping to get photos other than of the long bar will be disappointed.

Disappointed that the refurbishments are running behind. If it's on your list to visit check with the web site. Some companies were still running trips in December 2018

Raffles hotel is an icon, luxury at its best, but be prepared for a huge bill if staying there. Afternoon tea is wonderful so much to choose from. Worth a look around.

Historic and yet modern Raffles Hotel is a beautiful building seemingly untouched by time. It brings back a nostalgic look into the time when Britain ruled most of the civilized world and men and women got dressed up just to have dinner or a drink....More
