With lots of research, we stamped upon Singapore as our year's holiday destination. Thanks to the amazingly wonderful internet, we could gather all required information online and make our bookings easily. The World's Gateway to Asia - is what they rightly promote Singapore for! In just two words, Singapore can be described as a man-made marvel. A truly dedicated system exists to make your life as simple as possible.
We visited in June, so the weather was all hot and humid and it rained anytime. But you have to tolerate the humidity only till you are anywhere outside. Once you enter any indoor structure you get to enjoy the efficient air cons. We chose and booked a hotel close to MRT station. The MRT system in Singapore is worth experiencing. The stations, maps, trains are so well-organised, that it is very hard to get lost. One can easily move from one end of Singapore to another with the efficacious public transport. The trains and the buses link you to almost every possible destination in Singapore. We bought a Singapore tourist pass which allows unlimited travel on to the trains and buses for a limited period. That was the best part. At the stations, "Give way to alighting passengers" is followed religiously and in case the train is crowded ( not the definition of 'crowded' as in the Mumbai locals , a much subtler version ) you can easily let go a train and get another in less than 2 mins. We were in love with the system and walked to the MRT each day eager to take the train to our destination.
