Singapore Holidays

Famous for its restrictive laws and ultra strait-laced culture, Singapore is such a clean, safe Southeast Asian city that it sometimes gets a bad rap for its asceticism.

The city-state has recently opened two “integrated resorts” (also known as casinos) and other nightlife options are centered on the Riverside district. The mix of Chinese, Malay and Indian populations make for a year-round of colorful events like Lunar New Year, the Dragon Boat Festival, and Dewali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, and others.

The people are very friendly and speak English quite well. Can roam easily because public transport, like their MRT, is so accessible. Food is great, lots of choices in hawker centers, mall food courts, etc. I love Singapore!
