    Hi SW
    It depends on your budget. Swissotel the Stamford would be located right above the subway station and you wouldn't have to walk outside in the heat.
    But it is very convenient to get anywhere in the city since it is all very close by.

    Hi

    Fullerton is beautiful and great location but does depend on budget as expect its not cheap (I have only been there to eat). Taxis are cheap in Singapore and plentiful (unless it pours with rain!). If shopping is your prime reason to go, then maybe somewhere near Orchard Road would be better but I used to work near the Fullerton and it is handy to most places.

    Have fun - I love Singapore!

    Grand Hyatt and Royal Plaza on Scotts are good if you want to be close to Orchard Road - the main shopping district.

    Singapore is really small and you can get around easily with all the hotels listed (although I think Shangri-la is a bit out of the way).

    THanks ladies. We have confirmed the Mandarin Oriental.

    We will go for a 3-day trip. but there are so many to do in Singapore (sadly that I have to skip shopping coz we are going for our 3-yr-old boy, so his pleasure is the prime reason, but still a lot to do). I have headache in planning this short trip.

    Zoo (2nd day)
    Night Safari (2nd night)
    Sentosa (1st day from afternoon to late evening, is it enough?)
    3rd day morning what to do????????

    headache!!!

    Wow, your second day sounds pretty full on. Personally I would choose the night safari - it is great fun (instead of day/night at the zoo). You could also do the Bird Park - Jurong, Snow City, The Flyer, Botanical Garden.... or get on the Singapore Duck Tour to rest your legs if need be.

    I think a previous poster is right and I'd skip the daytime zoo but go for the Night Safari. Here's an idea: escape the heat at a water theme park

    My friend's kids (2yrs, 4yrs and 7yrs) all love it!
