ESQUINA Tapas Bar Singapore

Esquina Tapas Restaurant Singapore by www.carlosmeliablog.comEsquina Tapas Bar Singapore  | Singapore  |  I would say, one of my favorite casual restaurants in Singapore, and one of the best tapas restaurants I have tried in a long time, not to mentioned the fantastic creamy Sangrias yummy. ESQUINA, provides visitors to the culturally-rich Chinatown with an added choice of European cuisine to the ethnic enclave. Open from Mondays to Saturdays, Esquina serves mainly modern Spanish tapas in a unique location that is surrounded by post-war colonial buildings, hip coffee joints and ‘old school’ home style restaurants.

Raffles Singapore my absolute favorite by www.carlosmeliablog.comRaffles Singapore my absolute favorite  | Singapore  |  During my last visit to Singapore, I have the chance and pleasure to visit twice the very lovely and charming Raffles Singapore, which I must admit, is so far my absolute favorite hotel in Singapore. Unfortunately since I was being hosted by AUDI Fashion Festival, we were staying at another property, but from now on Raffles  will be my option in Singapore. Their approach to hospitably is …” True luxury is not just about what you do, it’s about how you feel…” and that is what you feel and experience when you walk into this first and original property by the Raffles group. For over 125 years Raffles Singapore has been the place to stay in this thriving city. Elegant and colonial in feel, its generous proportions create a sense of calm and space.  Continue reading Raffles Singapore my absolute favorite

Gardens by the Bay Singapore

Gardens by the Bay Singapore by www.carlosmeliablog.comGardens by the Bay Singapore  | Singapore  |  Gardens by the Bay, has to be one of my favorite attractions in Singapore. Last time I visited this city, it was still under construction, and I was only able to get a panoramic glimpse from the Singapore Flier and the KU DE TA, but this time I made sure to come and visit. The first feeling it came through me was, being inside of a space ship, a Noah’s Arc. The Gardens captures the essence of Singapore as the premier tropical Garden City with the perfect environment in which to live and work – making Singapore a leading global city of the 21st century. The park consists on there areas, the Outdoor Gardens including the Supertree Groove, Flower Dome and my favorite the Cloud Forest. Located just behind the Marina Bay Sands complex. It is like experiencing the way we will live in the future, under perfect controlled conditions, sustainability and perpetual Spring. Access to all attractions, for foreigners, 28 Singapore Dollars.  Continue reading Gardens by the Bay Singapore
