    Singapore is very clean and strict country in Asia. It is also the most hot destination to travel and financial place in Asia. They attracted many high grade people working there and to be the permanent resident. This is the country which civil workers never accept any 'coffee money'. The houses there very expensive but the transport is very convenience.

    Singapore has a reputation for being boring and austere. Though there are plenty of reasons to criticize the city-state, it is a modern urban miracle. The pace of development here has been incredible and Singapore has done an amazing job of fabricating a global melting pot.

    The tourist sights themselves are pretty limited and unimpressive. That said, the food and weather here are fantastic and it makes a great base for exploring the rest of the region.

    A better place to live than to tour. A few days here is plenty for most tourists.

    An important business during the week and family leisure in the weekend. This city has a lot to offer its visitors and citizens alike from food, entertainment, business and services. You are very likely to come across this city if you travel around Asia.

    The nite still young :). The lit up commercial buildings provide a colorful backdrop against the bridge and the river. On the foreground is a taxi ferry which transports tourists around. Nice and serene. It would even be nicer if June weather is less hot!

    We really liked this city as a prelude to our trip to Asia. I call this Asia light since they speak English here as the main language. The city is very clean and easy to get around. It tends to be expensive but it seemed that the taxis are very reasonable.

    It is known as chewing gum nation but despite it's small size (274.1 sq miles) slightly more than 3.5 times the size of Washington DC, Singapore packs a punch. As with most places, you'll get a richer experience if you mix with the locals. Look past the snazzy shopping centres and you'll find hidden gems dotted around the isle. Pockets of tropical nature, the architecture of the shophouses and the wet markets but what stands out for me most, is the food culture. It is a food paradise - Cantonese, Teochew, Hokien, Malay, Indonesian, South Indian, Peranakan, Thai, you name it. So many dishes to try, so little time lah!

    Such a great city, so well planned, clean and safe!! Slightly on the expensive side and you will be taking lots of cabs. Eat a lot of chicken and rice and laksa!!

    I spent 2 weeks in Singapore a few years ago on Company Business. I only scratched the surface of this bustling and compact City and would love to return.

    Most visitors' only experience of this island state will be a short and very efficient transit between flights at its excellent airport, considered by many to be one of the best conceived in the world. It's fair to say that the place doesn't have a great reputation for democracy or truly free press expression (the same family have controlled majority interests here for generations) but it functions - and really well. Think of this as a little bit of Switzerland, but right on the Equator. The weather is temperate all year round, the expats mostly obnoxious and propertionately over-privileged (a hark back to its colonial past). But there's no doubt about it, this is a major trading hub for western multinationals seeking a presence in South East Asia. There are plenty of pockets of interestingness to seek out, such as Little India, but pockets is all they are. As fellow poster Frances very eloquently puts it in her post immediately below, this place will grow on you if you give it half a chance. That said, it's also a place who don't really want to be challenged culturally or aesthetically for anything which sits outside the comfort zone of western taste. But as fellow poster Matthew also observes, it's an easily navigable place offering an interesting (if controlled and slightly homogenised) melting pot of cultures.

    Granted, Singapore has an obnoxious government. Its meddlesome approach to personal freedoms and perceived social ills is irritating at best, and shades of totalitarianism at its worst. Still, no one on Earth is well-governed, and acknowledging that fact, one quickly finds that Singapore is a very easy place to like: clean, beautiful, and safe, with loads of interesting sights and activities. Even if you're not into the gambling-meets-cutting-edge-architecture scene in Marina Bay, and even if you never visit the gorgeous landscapes of Sentosa, you'll still find more than enough reason to enjoy this city which, simply put, has one of the best dining scenes in the entire world. With an astonishing mixture of Chinese, Indian, and Malay food existing side-by-side and constantly cross-pollinating, it's an amazing city for noshing, and while I enjoyed my time seeing the sights of Singapore, it was my dinners and lunches that made me want to come back for more. Get past the facade and into the streets and hawker centers -- this tiny island nation is one of the true pearls of Asia.

    Singapore is a remarkable city considers is such small yet is nearly pure urbanization. I hardly see any trash in the street, is almost no such thing as back alley here. City is very safe with very low crime; you do not see any homeless in the street. If you like tech, you will love this place. There is camera and other gadget everywhere, especially in the orchard road. If you do not find the stuff you looking for in one store, they can bring it for you without need to walkout the store.

    Their Chinese food is excellent, and not expensive. I cannot believe their Hainan chicken is actually a lot cheaper than Los Angeles. Food court is actually common there, and is been inspect to ensure is safe to eat.

    You can walk one mall to another underground, without need to walk in the street. Singapore train system is the best, very easy to use even for foreigner. I think Singaporean speak the best English in Asian, they first language is English which that help. There’s reason why is very hard to migrate to Singapore,

    It took a while for Singapore to grow on me. At first glance, Singapore seemed fairly generic and staid, but I started to appreciate Singapore after a while. The food scene is one of the best in the world and it's remarkably efficient and clean. Plus, the Arab Quarter along with Haji Lane, and Chinatown make Singapore an enticing place to visit. The only main downside is Singapore is extremely hot and muggy.

    Singapore has changed so much in the past 10 years and have done a great job to make it a more vibrant city. You have a lot more choices to go now compared to 10 years ago. It is clean, orderly and safe. Well done, Singapore!

Description

Famous for its restrictive laws and ultra strait-laced culture (feeding pigeons or monkeys is banned, along with drugs and porn), Singapore is such a clean, safe Southeast Asian city that it sometimes gets a bad rap for its asceticism. However, there is much to get excited about here, including the world-famous food culture. Cafes are open 24 hours a day, hawkers sell food from all over Asia on ... read more
virtually every street block, and you can sit down at a restaurant to a variety of delicious dishes like oyster omelette and clay pot seafood. Singapore has recently opened two “integrated resorts” (also known as casinos) and there are plenty of other opportunities to get your nightlife on in the Riverside district. The Chinese, Malay and Indian population makes for colorful events like a spectacular Lunar New Year, the Dragon Boat Festival, and Dewali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, in October or November.
