The Island-City-State of Singapore …

With one of the World’s best airlines (Singapore Airlines) based here, it is no surprise that I have been to Singapore many times. I just love cities with tropical climate, good public transit and above all, safety. As with other Asian mega-cities, Singapore is also a mix of various cultures.

One of the first things you would notice is how clean Singapore is. Very impressive, considering that it is based in Asia (where a lot of the cities struggle with waste) and hosts a lot of people. The entire city is quite tourist-friendly and it is obvious that the country recognizes the importance of tourism to their economy.

There have been many new additions to Singapore, since my 1st visit, like Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay, lot of the attractions in Sentosa Etc. Changi International Airport, is definitely one of the best in the World, IMHO. It is a real pleasure to spent time at this airport. A place where flight delays are most welcome! 🙂
