The island nation of Singapore is an economically prosperous scenic “traveler’s paradise”. On the map it looks rather small, but in fact it has an intricate collection of attractions and it can take weeks to visit most of the small country’s primary attractions. It’s multicultural, prosperous, but a country with strict laws.
As evidence, chewing gum is illegal in Singapore and so are parabolic antennas. Hugging someone without their permission is punished by law and they even have the death penalty. However strict its laws are, this makes it one of the World’s safest and cleanest countries. But why visit Singapore?
There are several reasons…
For its multicultural riches – historic ethnic neighbourhoods like: Chinatown, Little India, Bras Basah, Bugis, Arab Street… The hypermodern architectural wonders are already World-renowned: the Marina Bay Sands Hotel’s observation deck offers breathtaking views of Singapore’s panorama, the Gardens by The Bay is essentially a modern artificially-created green area where artificial tree-like structures host climbing green vegetation (it’s really a modern botanical garden).
Photographers will love Singapore and so will those who love eating. Cuisines from all over the World are well-represented in Singapore, but the Asian ones are most abundant. Eateries like the Telok Ayer Market will give you the opportunity to taste various traditional meals… Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Indian… are just some of many.
