Singapore in essence

Street scene in Chinatown

 Little India, Chinatown and Kampong Glam, these are three ethnic quarters, I consider as the truest Singapore attraction. It is in these places where one can see the tangible trace of  Singapore’s roots of colorful history, culture and religion. Each quarter has its own unique vibe, which I’m sure one will love when visiting the tiny Republic of Singapore.

Impressive architectural marvel is all over the country. The Marina Bay Sands, Esplanade, Helix Bridge, Singapore Flyer, Resorts World Sentosa, to name a few are expression of the country’s economic and social progress. On the other hand, old world art decos, shop houses and Peranakan houses are aplenty. The juxtaposition of these modern and old world buildings create a great contrast that adds more to the country’s character.

It’s such a diverse place, one can take in as much of the sights  and engage in whatever activity as one pleases. Food, accommodation, and shopping are literally everywhere. There are tons to choose from, matching one’s respective budget.  Anticipate a lot of walking and warm weather so comfortable clothing is advisable.

Progressive, modern, clean, efficient modes of transportation and generally safe place to live in, people are generally reserved and nice– these, how I describe Singapore. Despite being tired from walkathon, being burned by the sun, drenched by sudden rain,  I love every piece and bits of my short stay.
