It rained often during my visit to Singapore, but that didn’t stop me from chasing a sunset on the south east island nation. A sunset isn’t a major draw for tourists or travelers to Singapore, but like everywhere, it occurs and it is always special (at least to me). But the Singapore Sunset, a proper one, may have eluded me…. but I do have images and moments to share.
Orchard Hotel Singapore Sunset
After my early arrival and an amazing lunch at the Orchard Hotel Singapore’s restaurant: The Hua Ting, I settled down for a bit of a rest. Like any true Asian adventure (beginning from the States), the time zone changes affected my internal clock (jet lag) and I rested. I woke just in time for the Singapore Sunset outside my hotel window.
Orchard Road Sunset in Singapore
Two afternoons later, I still wanted to shoot the sunset and during my walk back from the botanical gardens I noticed the sun peeking through the clouds it was if it was shouting to me. It said, “Hey! I am here, see it’s not always raining in Singapore.” I snapped the image on the famous Orchard Road.
Night Safari Sunset
I left Singapore for Malaysia but returned for one more night before my flight back to the United States. My options; the Night Safari or search for the sunset. The Nigh Safari was a must see and I thought I’d be able to see a sunset there, but thanks to event traffic (Formula 1 was in town) I never arrived in time for a sunset. I captured it from the window of my bus in traffic.
And although there are reasons to return to the Southeast Asian island nation of Singapore, one of my top would be to focus on capturing a better sunset (perhaps from the Singapore Flyer or the Marina Sands Hotel) but they escaped me on this most recent trip. But, I’ll be back and until then, these pictures and photos will work just fine. It will just be like chasing the Sunset in Glasgow, Scotland
Happy Sunset Sunday and stay adventurous, Craig
