This small but beautiful country has all the reasons to boast itself in terms of convenience, cleanliness, food, and of course, people.
The moment you arrive in Changi airport, you won’t wonder why it has retained its title as the best airport in the world for three consecutive years. The entire airport is huge with theme parks in every floor. It is mostly carpeted with literally all the things that you need like a strong wifi connection, sleeping and waiting lounges, desktop computers, massage chairs, restaurants, luxury shops, and a lot more.
Singaporeans can also speak English well which makes it easier for tourists to communicate with them and ask for assistance whenever necessary. They’re pretty kind too. There were several times when I had to ask for directions and all of them were very helpful to even walk with me to my destination. See? I made new friends. That’s the beauty of traveling.
Orchard Road, which is the Singapore’s main shopping street, is also a huge tourist attraction lined with high-end malls, hotels, restaurants, and bargain stores. This one-way boulevard is clean and beautiful with double-deckers, expensive cars, and beautifully-designed taxi cabs passing by.
At night, if you want to have a couple of drinks, you can head to Clarke Quay where many bars and night restaurants are located. You can walk around or just sit on a bench enjoying the view of the river in front of the famous Marina Bay Sands.
If you would like to revive childhood memories, you shouldn’t miss the Universal Studios located in Sentosa Island. It was one of the highlights of my trip. As they say, “We don’t stop playing because we grow old. We grow old because we stop playing.”
