Singapore at a glance

I did not recall how many times I have visited Singapore but this time was very special as I travelled with my friend Linda who took me to some unusual places.  Foolishly, every time I go to Singapore I almost always spend my time around Orchard Road. Never too far from the shopping or at Sentosa Island or at the zoo. But actually there are so many places I have never been to, Chinatown, for example. I was amazed to see that all the building there were still being kept in good condition. it was clean (after all it was Singapore) and pleasant to walk around and do shopping too. Singapore is a huge city with several district that are famous for sightseeing, restaurants, nightlife and great accommodation  Combining the skyscrapers and subways of a modern, affluent city with a medley of Chinese, Malay and Indian influences and a tropical climate, with tasty food, good shopping and a vibrant night-life scene, this Garden City makes a great stopover or springboard into the region. No surprise, Singapore is so well known and is one of the most prosperous countries, not to mention that is now the world’s busiest port.

Singapore is an island state with just over five million people.  It’s a fairly crowded and is in fact second only to Monaco as the world’s most densely populated country. However, unlike many other densely populated countries, Singapore – with more than 50% of its area covered by greenery and with over 50 major parks and 4 nature reserves – is an enchanting garden city. Unfortunately we did have not time to go to the Botanical gardens. I hope next visit.
