Singapore is a colourful city full of tantalizing sights, smells, and tastes just waiting to be found. Technically a city-state itself, it’s off the southern coast of Malaysia and is the only self-sovereign island in the world! Even in such a busy city, there are still peaceful green spaces like the Gardens by the Bay which has several public greenhouses and some great seaside views too. One of the most iconic sights in Singapore is the Merlion statue, which is a half-fish, half-lion creature that is symbolic of the identity of Singapore itself.
The city is known as one of the most densely populated places on earth, with only Monaco being more densely populated. Culturally speaking, Singapore is a fusion of several cultures including Asian, European, Middle Eastern, and more. This is reflected in the people you’ll see out and about as well as the food they eat and even what they wear. Being an island of course of the main food groups is seafood with grilled stingray being a particularly delicious delicacy to try! The climate here is tropical and is the same all year round – just don’t forget your sunglasses!
