Raffles Bar and Billiards Brunch

As soon as your travel plans are underway to Singapore an absolute must is procuring a reservation at Singapore's absolute must-do culinary indulgence - Brunch at the prestigious Raffles Bar and Billiard Room. Securing a booking here can be quite a task, and therefore it is always advisable to book up to one month in advance.
The hotel is a Singaporean institution that dates back to the days of British colonisation. The heritage and history of the hotel is indeed most worthy of a trip to better understand the transition in time that Singapore has made from its heyday as the principal colonial hub serving England to the throbbing cosmo heart-beat of Asia it is today, as a major financial player
