Clarke Quay, Singapore.

A vacation to Singapore is not complete without a visit to Clarke Quay, an entertainment hub! Yes it is filled with restaurants, pubs, tourists, clubs and all kinds of chaos. For our last evening we went for dinner at an Irish Pub. I mean you can never go wrong with sausage and a beer can you?

It is a bit “too perfect”, at least the parts that are shown to the visiting tourists. Having said this, there is something about that clean polished and organized surface that still appeals to me. Especially compared to the more “chaotic” experiences you normally have in other asian destinations. In Singapore there is a possibility to get a taste of the asian culture while remaining relaxed. I think that this why I would not hesitate to go to Singapore with kids again, it is just so easy going.
