Well, I feel Singapore is very similar to Malaysia. Same people, same history--almost, same community,same language.
Despite these similiarity, i found out Singapore has yet some differences.
Singapore has different culture which is better than Malaysian. This is punctuality. I experienced their punctuality from buses, MRT to event commencement. i believe punctuality is amazing important in increasing efficiency.
Same as what people thought of Singapore. A clean, safe and efficient city.I have visited many places in Singapore like Bugis, Chinatown and Little India. These places are unique cultural region. Its very typical chinese, indian places. while bugis is the busiest street shopping places.
Well, i stayed in river valley, in a backpackers inn named Fernloft.
I walked to Clarke Quay almost every night. That place is beautiful and romantic. Its the best place for couples to hang around but too bad i walk single there.
I visited the famous leisure island in Singapore which is Sentosa Island.
People or tourists love to go there as this is a place where citizens enjoyed the beaches, theme parks, bird eye view from sky tower, singapore history museum and nature walk. In this small island, you will find an integrated leisure places from Sentosa. Soon, the hotel and casino will be built in this island and more elements of entertainment will be added in this place.
I also visited Singapore Universities- NTU and NUS.
This is a great oppourtunity to establish network with singapore counterparts and also international ones. I got to know friends from india and china from NUS.
These days in Singapore, i meet up my old friends who studying in singapore and also new friends. i am glad that i also meet up a very special friend who i got to know her in airplane when i was on a flight to Hong Kong.
Summary, i am glad i was there in Singapore. i found out travel is not all about places. It will be a more wonderful trip if there are right people there when you travel.
