Family Trip To Singapore

It's been a long time I didn't plan for a family trip. This trip was rather a last minute arrangement. Thank God I managed to get a good deal directly from the Parkroyal Hotel, Beach Road itself. The rate was relatively cheaper compared to other online booking website. I booked for superior rooms but upon check-in, the hotel was kind enough to automatically upgrade my rooms to deluxe. Nett price after tax per room per nite was S$151. Not bad!

The sad part about this trip was my hubby fell terribly sick upon arrival. He suffered terrible migraine followed by fever in the middle of the night. So he has thoroughly "enjoyed" sleeping for good 2 days in the hotel room while we hang out at the shopping complex.

I have requested for adjoining rooms with king size bed. The hotel did not disappoint me either.
Except that the king size bed is slightly smaller than the standard king size bed

With UOB Card privilege, we were given free breakfast for 2 person per room per nite.
Breakfast served were varied choice of local delicacies like fried radish cake, nasi lemak,
porridge, fried noodles and and international favourites.

Fascinated by the real orchid plant outside the spa and recreation area.This lively orchid flowers at the reception counter was magnificent too.

It rained the night before. Elgin enjoyed a real cool dip in the pool

Caught my eyes was the "Eyes of Singapore", not this self-conscious fella who turned away from me when my camera was aiming at the former.

Within vicinity of the pool, the 3 cascading tower is the casino under construction, to be run by the Las Vegas Sands Corp.

The largest street shopping location in Singapore- Bugis is withing walking distance from the hotel.

The hotel provides free shuttle service to Orchard Road and Vivo City
Elgin fell asleep on the journey.

Vivo City-the largest shopping mall in Singapore.

It was refreshing to see dense trees and lush green landscape. Singapore is indeed a vibrant garden city.

On the way back to my homeland, stopping by at Skudai to have their famous teochew braised duck and side dishes.
