Images Of Singapore

A city, island and country, Singapore is known for many different things. Some consider it the most important financial centre in South-East Asia, while others think of it as a sterile city where everything runs like clockwork. Both these assumptions aren't that far away from the truth. This may not paint the most colourful picture in the world though. But don't fret - there is a lot to see. Singapore has a beach to bask in, stores to shop in, sights to snap at, and some of Asia's most fascinating neighbourhoods.

    Amazing city

    Singapore is an amazing city - worth the stopover, or even stay for a few days. I stayed for 4 nights, and I was constantly amazed. It's a beautiful city, although it can be expensive but if you're money-smart, you'll be able to do Singapore on a budget. Public transport here is amazing - no need to hire a car nor a taxi when you're visiting. It's a safe city - you won't feel out of sorts when you're here.

    Insider Tip:Get the ferry from Clarke Quay, and cruise around Singapore. Fantastic sights and photography opportunities. It can get quite humid, and tends to rain at times every day, so be sure to have an umbrella or raincoat on you at all times - you don't want to get soaked wet when you're expecting it the least!

    Good place, marna bay great but not as homely. SO EXPENSIVE!!!

    Lovely place, night attractions but didn't feel very homely. Bet the people are absolutely lovely but we came across a lot of none-smiley people compared to other places we've been too (Kuala Lumpur). Marina Bay is gorgeous and such a lovely place to go. Lovely shopping centre with a great little lily pond outside. Couldn't stay there very long due to being ridiculously expensive, even bottle of water and anything!! Ruins it abit!

    Insider Tip:Go to Marina Bay!!

    2 things I dislike about Singapore

    Singapore is almost perfect. Almost. 1. Most Singaporeans are abrupt and rude. 2. Weather - it's like being in a sauna 24/7 Other than that it's pretty much a great place to vacation. plenty of things to do and everything is so efficient and getting places is easy. :)

    Singapore the clean country

    Singapore is super clean country but there are not so many things to enjoy. It's good for rich people, not for backpackers. With thousand luxury shops, you can enjoy for shopping hobby not only at Orchard road but also everywhere in Singapore. The zoos, bird park and other entertainment have a very high commission. Local people seem to be not welcome foreigner. It's better to work than travel and find something different.

    Insider Tip:Go to Mariana Bay and see the modern Singapore, go to the garden by the bay behind Marina Bay in the evening, go to the skypark bar on the 57th floor to see the whole city, sometime has music festival, all are free. Eat at Geylang for cheap food (compare with other areas). Especially, you should try frog porridge at Geylang lor 9 and chili crab. Can drink from tap water.
