Kim enjoys Singapore sites

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un visited tourist sites on Singapore’s waterfront on Monday.

Kim and US President Donald Trump now in the city-state for a historic summit to end a nuclear stand-off on the Korean peninsula.

Kim is not believed to have left his hotel since a meeting with Singapore’s prime minister, Lee Hsien Loong, soon after his arrival on Sunday in the country.

According to Reuters, he ventured out on Tuesday evening, smiling as he walked through the lobby to his limousine.

The Swiss-educated leader, who is believed to be 34, has not left his country since taking office in 2011 other than to visit China and the South Korean side of the border Demilitarised Zone, which separates the two Koreas.

On Monday evening, Kim’s first stop was a waterfront park with futuristic installations, Gardens by the Bay, which boasts the largest glass greenhouse and tallest indoor waterfall in the world.

Police and onlookers were also seen gathering outside the Marina Bay Sands hotel, which resembles a giant surfboard perched on three columns at the mouth of the Singapore River.
