Sir Stamford Raffles founded the city of Singapore in 1819. The Raffles Hotel is one of the grand locations in Singapore. The Singapore Sling was invented at its Long Bar. Although the hotel is too expensive for ordinary mortals, it's fun to wander its grounds and public areas. It breathes a coolness and old-fashioned elegance that more modern hotels can't duplicate.
