We stayed 9 nights at the Furama in Chinatown and thought its location was excellent. We walked everywhere even though it was hot. We did not get sunburnt. We stayed one night at the Marina Bay sands and did everything in that area. But we often caught the MRT bay to the gardens because they were so lovely. The thing about Chinatown is that you can eat for cheap. We ate for $5 a meal at B grade hole in the walls and never got sick. The time we did get upset stomach was after a very expensive meal of chilli mud crab at a very nice restaurant.. The beauty about Singapore is the Government grade the holes in the wall cafés A to F. A being the cleanest. From this hotel you can walk underground to Chinatown station. There was a Western shopping mail next to the hotel where we had wraps and coffee for lunch. The wraps were so big that we shared one. To answer your question - yes you could walk from Customs House to this property- its a pretty direct route. You are in the business area.. If your concerned hire a bike or take a scooter. We ofter saw people scootering around this route. The business people, jog on this route.. The MRT is excellent and cheap. You pay $7 for a card and you get travel with that. We topped it up with another $20 and didn't use anywhere near that amount despite going out to Palu Ubin an Island off Changi - which is a fun day. Singapore is a clean safe country. Can't wait to have grandchildren so I can take them there. Julie Ryan 58 - a walker - completed the full Spanish Camino

Yes we had a fridge in the room. The staff were so kind I got two fruit baskets because I was sick - pneumonia. But I left Australia with it. The Raffles Medical Centre was excellent. Consultation and 3 prescription medications all for $120.
