Singapore Trips | The Fullerton Hotel

Singapore Trips | The Fullerton Hotel The Fullerton Hotel was commissioned in 1919 as part of the celebrations for 100 years as a British colony. It was finished in 1928 and originally housed the General Post Office, top government offices and The Singapore Club which was an old boys club. When entering the post office at that time the counter was 300 feet long! We believe it was the longest in the world at that time. Although the central atrium is the same as it used to look like back in the days, today, on your Singapore day tours that the building has been remodelled. At the time of the post office, it was THE club for things to do in Singapore.  If you have booked your Singapore tour, don’t forget to take a photo of this building as it looks beautiful when the lights are on during a Singapore night tour!   #design #instagood #photooftheday #singapore #sg #lonelyplanet #hellosingaporetours #ilovesg #hellosg #streetsofsingapore #wanderlust #buildings #sglife #wanderlust #discoversingapore #discoversg #visitsingapore #singaporeatnight #singaporelights #singaporebuildings #historicalbuilding #thefullertonhotel #thefullerton #nightshot #nightphotography #singaporeatnight #nighttourofsingapore #nighttours #grouptour #privatetour
