Incredible visit. The day I landed Singapore airport the view was breathtaking. Well it was raining also; in the month of December. Shocked; it ruined my most of the plans. Coming back, what I found many Indians around; asserted as mini India. Singapore is expensive though but worth the sightseeing. Lot to explore. The people there are quite personable and helpful. All love Indians!! (Laugh your head off). Despite country size, the island packs a punch with a blend of elements that come together in unexpected symphony. Modern-architectural marvels, urban transport, steely skyscrapers, amazing street food, punctuality, imaginative world. The city itself is a celebration in diversity culture.
- One big reason why Singaporeans love food: even the local street (hawker) fare garners stars. Join the queues; the world’s first —Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle in Chinatown Complex. Alternatively, head to Corner House in UNESCO World Heritage Site Singapore Botanic Gardens to find out what cutting-edge ‘Gastro-Botanica’ cuisine really means. Mini India you will find all kind of things, Indian cuisine, electronic gadgets, and buying gold at affordable cost. The system was so organised even in malls, they could track people and suspect suspicious activity. Not only the roads, people’s thinking are quite broad, believe in contributing to the country they live.
- Modern skyscrapers, historical places, parks and island: The combination of historic and contemporary architecture in a city can evoke a beauty that is more than anything else. For a taste of the modern, take a whirl around bustling Raffles Place. Towering skyscrapers glint back at you from every direction, with the 43-floor Ocean Financial Centre and Singapore’s tallest hotel Swissotel . Down on the streets, historic neighbourhoods reveal architectural marvels the two-storey shophouses around Joo Chiat, where Peranakan (Straits Chinese) heritage has been preserved.
- Nature: Despite Singapore’s evolution into a modern city, many pockets of lush greenery remain. Get close to Mother Nature at Kranji Marshes, the largest freshwater marshland in Singapore, developed way back in the 1970s. As you look for observatory of a bird’s-eye view, keep your eyes peeled for over 170 species of birds and insects, If you’re wondering about the island’s moniker of ‘City in a Garden’, look up at the Supertrees at Gardens by the Bay for a futuristic interpretation of a park. Amid the surrounding waterfront gardens, these iconic structures are man-made marvels — the defining touches of a horticultural destination that is truly ‘nurtured’ into existence. Marina Bay Sands at Marina Bay is the larger and swankier of the two, while Resorts World Sentosa at Sentosa aims for a more family-friendly experience. There is dolphin show conducted at Sentosa. Dont we all love dolphins?? I do. Sentosa is Asia’s leading leisure destination and Singapore’s premier island resort getaway. A must visit. Coming to one of my favourite Universal Studios in Sentosa- Hollywood theme park, which depicts about Hollywood film, sci-fi, animation effects, 3D, you have terrific amusement rides, a Jurassic Park world within, The Mummy. Too much to say. I know friends it would tempt you to go and visit once. You should. Pack your bags and explore the world.
Concluding, shopping in Singapore is expensive, instead shop from markets than malls. Enjoy tour and meal than shopping. Chocolates, perfumes are best to shop.
