Selfies. Yes, like everyone else, we grabbed a few. This is inside the Dome Gardens, a beautiful, completely enclosed glass dome filled with a variety of plant life.
Everyone was taking selfies, unfortunately using these obnoxious selfie sticks. I started a whole album of people doing this!
This is inside the Cloud Forest, another dome of glass even bigger than the garden dome. You get to walk along these elevated platforms all the way up and behind the waterfall.
Looking down from one of the higher platforms.
This area of Singapore comes alive at night with all the lights! Click a photo to see them larger.
We see great architecture all around us living in Chicago, but Singapore kinda blew that away. There is so much amazing design in the buildings everywhere.
You always have to visit the markets. Get that cheap souvenir t-shirt and photos!
We boarded our ship, the Celebrity Constellation, after our couple days in Singapore.
Lunch at former US ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge’s home.
The lunch was arranged by our excursion provider "Trails of Indochina". We can't recommend them highly enough for great tours everywhere we visited.
When you visit a foreign land, you have to visit palaces with bunkers.
Da Nang and Hoi An Vietnam proved to be pleasant surprises for us all and we loved our visit to both.
We drove from the cruise port to Da Nang first, going past rice fields, clam farmers and over a mountain.
The Dragon Bridge was too cool!
Most of our time in Da Nang was driving around with a couple stops, but then we were off to Hoi An.
The markets are a part of everyday life. We were envious of the options and freshness. You don't go to a grocery store. You go to the market and buy straight from the farmer, cook, butcher or fisherman.
