Raffles Gateway Hotel to Airport at Night

Hello,

We will have a late night flight (11:30 pm) so we're planning to stay at the Raffles for a night and a half. Since it sounds like it is close we are thinking of just walking to the airport. Was wondering if it's safe to do so at night or if better to use the shuttle they offer?

It's my husband, myself, and our 18 month old that are travelling.

Thanks,

Julie

Take the shuttle, whilst it's across the road from arrivals you still have to negotiate the traffic with bags and a baby.I would not do it.E-mail the hotel and make sure that they will pick you up. .

Yes have done this myself better to take the free shuttle and it would actually be quicker to catch the bus rather than walk with baby.

With a baby the shuttle is the only way to go.
