    The Kampong Glam area sounds very nice. Just what i wanted to hear about.. not too tourist trap thanks! I'll check it out.
    THat area is a Red light district and there are lot of good food and so it not advisable to photograph there. Just incase.

    Btw, what is the date that you coming? I might able to show you around some of the places if you are fine with it

    I see redlight district.. Singapore has redlight districts? I thought Singapore was super strict? No wonder photography is risky..heheh

    Thanks for the generous offer to show us around but I'm not sure what our exact dates are yet. I think we might be there either around x-mas or new years depending on our finalization of the Malaysia portion of the trip. I doubt anyone want's to waste time to show tourists around on those times though but if you don't mind maybe I can send you some PM's later?

    Now you know the reason why you cannot take foto there lor.

    Our garmen takes care of us very well. They know Singaporean men are very stressful and our bodies can get extremely heaty. They never ban redlight districts so all men can relieve stress and cool down our bodies better than drinking liang teh.

    Not risky to the govt to take the picture. The problem is you might shot photos of unfaithful husbands and boyfriend going there to "cool their jets" if you catch my drift. *nudge nudge wink wink* That is the real big reason.....next in line would be the pimps.

    Wow cool attitude.. Too bad our U.S. gov't is not so open. Too much outdated western Christian influenced attitudes I guess.

    no worry about it. i myself do travel "often" and i am so lucky and met lot of nice people (the locals) and they do spend time with me and bring me around their home town. So it's my pleasure to share this experience with others

    KL, Petaling Street, KLCC, Maderka Square and KL Tower are the main tourist spots to go.

    And for penang, is the beach but i believe you have seen much more blueish one. Gurney Drive is a place where NICE local food to be found.

    Not forgetting the Penang Hill

    You have facebook? PMed if you have, i think i have some pics there

    Is there a snake temple and a turtle temple still in Penang? They're great to go to if they still exist.

    I think you question deserves a straight answer. Gelyang is famous for great food, but is also a red-light district. Orchard towers at night is the red-light district that caters to caucasians.

    I recommend that you get off at the Raffles Place MRT area.

    The Singapore River nearby has many good opportunities for taking photographs.

    Here's an example. I'm sure that you can take a much better picture than what I have!

    | Nikon D700; AF-S 14-24 f/2.8GED; AF 20 f/2.8D; AF 50 f/1.4D; SB400| Tamron AF 28-75 f/2.8 A09NII|

    There is a Snake Temple in Penang but have to go there during a certain time of the day to see many snakes.

    I think Turtle Temple is Kek Lok Si. There is a pond full of turtles in the temple. Vegetables are sold to the visitors to feed them.

    Okay now you have me curious.. what's the difference between the redlight district that caters to the locals and the redlight district that caters to the caucasians?

    but i think I know... the one that caters to the locals are all the young fresh pretty girls and the one's that cater to the caucasians are all the old aunties and ugly ones because the Whites don't know any difference right?

    Haha, I would not talk about the red-light district too much lest I become mistaken as an expert. Its quite off-topic anyway.

    Stick to the places for photography, consider venturing to the residential heartlands which might provide different opportunities from the usual touristy kinds.
