Singapore, blandly efficient city
Sound of monkeys swinging through the trees
They say that Singapore is the most enjoyable city at the southern Asia, so if you are planing to discover Asia and you are wondering, which would be the top destinations, don' t think twice, you should definitely start with Singapore. It's a very popular destination also for Asians,Singapore is well know as a very clean and well organized city and country, with a great night life where parties ends with sunrise, but at the same time a very safe and blandly efficient city.
You might think that it's boringly tasteless and the citizens have been left with no freedom even to spit the chew gum on the street, but at the end, it's so different than we would fall in love with Singapore, living in a society where fashion is not appreciated and where things are actually working the way they suppose to be...it's safe, pleasant and fabulous. Once you will get to the city, you will notice the countless beautiful city parks and you'll know the city bears no comparison to crime- and poverty. Even if the period since Singapore was just a swampy colonial outpost , they have gain a lot, to be a powerhouse industrial nation, and still those ones who knew Singapore from before, say that the city has lost its soul...
But no doubt, Singapore is never ending and very unique, fascinating ethnic brew, you cant imagine how many cultures are dipped in this city, China, India and Muslim Malaysia, and finally it has become one of the world's great eating capitals, as Asian food is a new modern crash. The food in this country is an official obsession, such as Sambal stingray,char kway teow, oyster omelette, chicken rice, clay-pot seafood, fish head curry, beef rendang , the list is huge and the taste of it is indescribable. And if still for you is not enough with stylish bars and restaurants, delicious meals under stars, the shopping is even more popular in Singapore, with boutiques and extravagant shopping experience.
Don't think that Singapore is all about eating and shopping, as people in this country have different view of life, there are also different kind of entertainment coming out, such as diving with sharks at Underwater World on Sentosa, mountain biking around Bukit Timah, leopard-spotting at Singapore Zoo's magical Night Safari, waterskiing and rock climbing, sounds extreme and unique?
It really is, Singaporians will surprise you, if that's still not what you are looking for and you just want to shut down from all the civilisation, get to the centre of the island , where the only sound you will be hearing will be monkeys swinging through the trees, by the way Singapore is one of two cities in the world that still retains a primer rainforest. Enjoy!
