Singapore and Indonesia
Singapore - a city state of 5 million people - is an island off the southern tip of the Malay peninsula, it is a fascinating place with futuristic high rise buildings and a bustling economy.
From Singapore it's on to Indonesia, an archipelago of about 17,000 islands. We took a great 3 hour train ride from Jakarta to Bandung with the train going between incredibly terraced padi rice fields.
