Singapore is cool
Personally, I like Kuala Lumpur better if you're looking for a trip to this part of the world, as it's cheaper and has a lot of the same features, but with more character. Singapore is a great place to access all the first world amenities you could want, but in a tropical location. I live in Indonesia as an English teacher, so it's a place I make it to quite a bit. The Indian food there is excellent, and there are plenty of things to do.
