Singapore is a global trade, commerce and financial center and home to top multinational companies in oil & gas, metals and mining sectors. Well known for its world class infrastructure, modern architecture and cleanliness, this small island nation is a confluence of Malay, Chinese, Indian and Western cultures. I was on a holiday with my parents after a long time and as our taxi sped out of the Changi airport onto the excellent roads of Singapore, we were excited to experience all that the country has to offer.
Singapore has so many attractions that it can be quite difficult to choose within the constraints of one's time and budget. While Little India and Chinatown offer a taste of ethnic Asia, Marina Bay is a place to indulge in the high life. Orchard Road is home to premium designer brands while the 24x7 Mustafa Center is place for budget shopping. One can easily spend a couple of days at the Resorts World Sentosa, where one can play with dolphins, meet their favorite Hollywood characters at the famous Universal Studios Singapore, check out the underwater aquatic world at the S.E.A Aquarium or gamble the night away at the Casino. Getting around is easy with the excellent MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) rail and bus network, which one can use for unlimited travel in a day on a Singapore Tourist Pass (10 SGD).
