The city state of Singapore was the last place I visited during my year of teaching English in South Korea. When I first signed my contract and began planning my time off, I knew I would have to go to Singapore. I may be biased (since I was born there and have lots of family living in Singapore) but Singapore is downright incredible. The blend of cultures, jaw dropping architecture, posh shopping districts and mouth watering cuisine are just a few reasons why it is an awesome place to visit while you are abroad. Last year, Singapore celebrated 50 years of independence after leaving the federation of Malaysia. Since the 1960's, Singapore has continued to grow economically, establishing itself as one of the "Asian Tigers," partly due to it's location- the Port of Singapore is the busiest in the world by tonnage handled. Today, Singapore is one of the world's most popular tourist destinations, with a cosmopolitan culture that marries old with new. Additionally, it is an easy city to navigate for Westerners as English- well... "Singlish" is spoken everywhere and the public transport is a breeze. I hope to give you a small look at some of my favorite things to do in the Lion City.
