The top 11 reasons to visit Singapore
1. World Wealth Creation Conference – because of the conference.
2. The Food – Singapore cuisine is as ethnically diverse as its people – a blend of Malay, Chinese, Indonesian, Indian and Western influences.
3. Singlish – everybody speaks English. English is an official language in Singapore although spoken with a Singaporean dialect. Singlish is awesome. It’s efficient in two ways. First, it cuts down on unnecessary words and platitudes. Second, one Singlish word can have multiple meanings and it takes a full sentence in English to express the same thing.
4. Architecture – The jaw-dropping architecture will take your breath away, with places like Esplanade: Theatres on the Bay, Supreme Court of Singapore, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore Flyer, ArtScience Museum, Iluma, Reflections, and the Helix Bridge.
5. Gardens (Botanic Gardens, Gardens by the Bay) – Singapore Botanic Gardens are the only tropical gardens to be honoured as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With more than 156 years of history, the 82-hectare Gardens hold a unique and significant place in the history of Singapore and the region. The gardens by the Bay in the city provide mesmerizing waterfront views across three gardens, spanning over 101 hectares of reclaimed land.
6. Clean and Safe – The fifth cleanest city in the world and the second safest city in the world.
7. Skyline – The Singapore skyline is breath-taking, and you can even go and swim in the highest pool in the world, which is on top of the Marina Bay Sands. The skyline of Singapore is most beautiful at night, when all of the architectural marvels are lit up. The view from Marina Bay Sands’ rooftop pool, the world’s highest at 495 feet up is truly magnificent.
8. Fun – Whether you’re in search of stellar views or amusement park fun, you’re certain to find something for everyone. When it comes to nightlife in Singapore, the city-state practically transforms itself from an ever-so-efficient business hub to a buzzing network of bars and nightclubs as soon as the sun goes down.
9. Shopping – Singapore’s mania for shopping almost rivals its obsession with food, and barely a year goes by without a vast new retail monolith flinging open its doors.
10. Multicultural – The Chinese make up 77 percent of the population of Singapore, Malays 14 percent and Indians 8 percent.
11. The World’s best Airport
