    However, you might want to give the Nigh Safari a miss. Quite a waste of time to me. :P
    Thank you. Breakfast with the zoo animals sounds interesting - if I can get out of bed early enough.

    it's our very own Esplanade (a performing arts center)!
    looks like a durian from outside!
    but looks like a pair of mosquito eyes from bird's eye view!

    Yes the Esplanade is nicknamed 'Durians' because it resembles the king of fruits. I do not have any pictures in soft copy that I can hotlink to show you.
    Anyone has shots of the esplanade to show?

    Hmm.. you can cover many many places in 1 week. Just make sure you have a big memory card

    If you really want to avoid the crowd, then check out sungei buloh nature reserve. November/December is the time when migratory birds from the north come to singapore.

    I think getting on to the singapore flyer is not absolutely a must, take a ride if you have time and money to spare. Otherwise it's better to walk and roam freely.

    WOW. Some of those night shots are just magic.

    I'll bring a couple of memory cards with me but, if I run out, I'm certain I should be able to get some good prices on extra memory cards in S'pore.

    I can hardly wait for November to come around.

    S'pore sells cheap memory cards, so don't worry.
    btw remember to visit Henderson Bridge too http://www.singaporeshots.com/thumbnails.php?album=61!
    great spot for many photographers.

    That's an amazing series of shots of the Henderson Bridge/Waves.

    You can consider the followings:

    Visit during the weekdays say about 9am, where most people are working.

    1. Singapore Chinese Garden
    2. Botanical Gardens
    3. Butik Timah Nature Reserve and walk to the summit.
    4. The Merlion Park
    5. Esplanade

    During the evening and at night

    1. Orchard Road
    2. Singapore River (Clarke Quay and Boat Quay)
    3. Esplanade Bridge is beautiful at night
    4. Southern Ridges (Kent Ridge Park and Mount Faber and Telok Blangah Hill Park) Mount Faber by night is spectacular and the Henderson Waves bridge is a walking distance.

    Other places to consider
    1. Little India
    2. Chinatown
    3. Malay village (Kampong Glam)

    Have fun!

    Thank you so much. I can hardly wait to get to S'pore now. I just received a remote shutter release cable for the camera I will be taking with me and am teaching myself some night photography. I will put those skills to use when I visit.

    I am really impressed with this site. I find that participants are very eager to help others, even from far away lands . I have seen some excellent photography here too.

    Cheers to all.

    The Chek Jawa guided walk (if you can make it for one) is really fun. There were some really fantastic photos by Febrita on one of the ladies photographer thread.

    Oh, and my personal favourite is Labrador Park. By the time November rolls around, you might or might not still have low tide around sunset.

    One of my favorite features - the air conditioned pavilions scattered throughout the zoo. Are they still around?

    To hwalter : remember to plan some indoor locations in case of rain.

    rain is not so predictable in Singapore... almost everyone brings out an umbrella everyday.. a little like copenhagen...

    but there are fixed monsoon seasons in South east asia so... umbrellas are a must-bring item...
