Sleek, Sophisticated and Stylish....Singapore is a high tech metropolis, and one of my all time favorite cities. It is a rich melting pot of Asian cultures, friendly people and delicious food. with lots to do, and it is probably the most family friendly city in Asia. Theme Parks, a fantastic zoo and much more, giant shopping malls on every corner, world class entertainment. truly excellent public transport...did i mention the food!!
No trip to Singapore is complete without a little retail therapy..a stroll along Orchard Road will have any enthusiastic shopper's head turning around like an owl. I am not a big shopper myself, and i was blown away by there sheer size, and amount of huge shopping centers on every corner. I couldn't cross the road without getting lost inside one...helplessly sailing up an escalator..with the exit disappearing below me..or getting off the subway and finding myself of the 6th floor off some mall...with google maps useless in my hand...pleading with Ganesh or Buddha to let me find the exit.
You can find absolutely anything you want here.
