Great Asian Railway Journeys

Taal: nld
Categorie: Reizen

Michael Portillo's south east Asian railway tour reaches its final stop - Singapore. The island city-state at the southern tip of Malaysia is one of Asia's biggest success stories. Travelling on the extensive MRT - or mass rapid transit - rail network to the west side of the island, Michael visits a vast construction site that is to become the world's largest fully automated container port which is taking shape on land reclaimed from the sea. The grand project reflects Singapore's towering economic ambition. Back in the centre, Michael hears of the nation's maritime roots and how Englishman Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles established the first port here in 1819. On a boat trip along the Singapore River, Michael discovers how trade flourished under British colonial rule and, at the iconic Raffles Hotel, he takes a seat in the famous Long Bar and treats himself to its signature cocktail, a Singapore Sling.
