Singapore: A must Visit Place in Asia

I love Singapore because people there are very nice. You will find the local food very nice. Everything is green and very clean. Local people keep the streets clean.You will find very safe to walk down anywhere. I should not hesitate to accept the fact that Singapore is much cleaner than Delhi. We need to learn many things from this small country.

 What do you think of when you think of Singapore?

Singapore is considered as a major transport hub. The Changi Airport connects the west to the rest of Asia, as well as Australasia – and vice versa, with 54.1 million passengers passing through the airport each year. And this airport has been awarded many times for its customer friendly services.

First when I decided to visit Singapore, I had thought to see, taste and immerse myself in Singaporean culture. And O boy, it had been proved a correct decision to explore Singapore and all its delights.

To be honest its a relatively ‘new’ place terms of being a modern city but it retains its rich cultural history.  It resembles in its world renowned famous hospitality. You will find a fusion in local cuisine. Singapore cuisine is mix of Chinese, Malay, Indonesian, Japanese and Indian cuisine.

I will highly recommend Singapore to foodies. Buddies! this is one place you must visit.

Fly in

My flight got into Singapore at around 4:00pm. Temperature was  28C. Our Air conditioned Taxi to our hotel was quick.

I had booked my room at the  Shangri-La Hotel on Orange Grove Road, a five-star hotel. I must say they have unmatched service. It has a good space and beautiful gardens.The vast, astonishing, magnificent marble lobby was filled with huge displays of fresh flowers. Old school charm was at its finest.

At gate they  presented me with dendrobium orchids. It is considered very pious in Singapore.

No doubt visiting Singapore’s hawker center was  one of the most enjoyable parts of my travel to Singapore.

Food is quite cheep. A meal will cost you just 2 to 5 $.
