HKG

Def Singapore unless you are interested in Disney

Great Zoo, Botanical Gardens and the new River Safari and Gardens by the Bay are very cool.

Depending on the time of year, weather is usually better in SIN

Which is better:

Shabbas in SIN (would like to stay here) or Shabbas in BKK (would probably stay here)?

Marina Bay is 1:30hrs walking from the JBC, in Sg that means your suit will be soaked, better to stay at the IC, Fairmont, Raffles which are a few minutes away and the outside of your suit will probably stay dry.

Shame to be in SIN and not stay at that hotel... will have to decide if its worth it to even go to JBC.

So you're saying SIN > BKK?

Marina Bay Sands is not a hotel that you want to stay at. Better stay closer to the JBC and go visit the MBS

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Fairmont.
-100 one of the worst hotels service wise I have ever stayed at. I've never been to BKK, but SIN shabbos was ok. There is a nice park a walks away which is beautiful, but that's assuming you don't want to rest your feet already...

Ever been to Chabad in SIN to compare?

Marina Bay Sands is not a hotel that you want to stay at. Better stay closer to the JBC and go visit the MBS

Why?? That pool is definitely on my bucket list.

MBS?
