This tiny city is surrounded by dream skyscrapers and colonial barracks, this new and very self confident city is fulfilled with modern hotels, great restaurants and bars. You will ask, what's so special about it, seems boring? Singapore hides a great traditions and history behind these bold new buildings and business centers that leaves smoky temples in the shadow, it's so much deeper, you will never look at it as a boring place.
Singapore used to be an Asian geek, but finally, it has found its groove, and it's fabulous, charming and very confident! It's also called a City in a Garden! Why?
