Singapore Vacations

Famous for its restrictive laws and ultra strait-laced culture, Singapore is such a clean, safe Southeast Asian city that it sometimes gets a bad rap for its asceticism.

street block, and you can sit down at a restaurant to a variety of delicious dishes like Bak Kut Teh and fish head curry. For the best selection of local food at the best prices, go to any one of the numerous hawker centers. These originated decades ago to give a dry and sanitary space for Singapore's street food vendors. Travelers to the Singapore gravitate toward Chinatown or Little India, or to one of the newest attractions, like the remarkable Gardens by the Bay. The city-state has recently opened two “integrated resorts” (also known as casinos) and other nightlife options are centered on the Riverside district. The mix of Chinese, Malay and Indian populations make for a year-round of colorful events like Lunar New Year, the Dragon Boat Festival, and Dewali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, and others.

I had an amazing time in Singapore - it feels like there’s more to do here than in a country 10
times the size! The food is definitely the highlight, and if you don’t manage Satay Street then you’re missing out. Drinks are expensive, and it can get really muggy, but if that’s the worst to worry about then you’re not going to come off too badly.

Singapore is my overall favourite destination of my lifetime. Palau Ubin was my favourite place to walk/hike/cycle and the country is very clean, friendly, and inviting.

Singapore is a clean, mostly english speaking, upcoming country! They are a major melting pot of the surrounding countries, India, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, and China. There is so much to explore. There are countless shopping areas, skyscraper areas, shopping malls, restaurants, and cultural places to visit such as Little India and Chinatown!

I understand why many South East Asian lovers snob Singapore, but I like it exactly for the same reason. It's a mix of India and China, clean, safe, uber efficient and yes relatively expensive.

If I had to choose my favourite city in the whole world, Singapore would be in the TOP 5 for sure. It is very elegant, beautiful, you can see the asian spirit but at the same time feel safe in terms of food and pollution. I would love to live there someday.
