Singapore is our idea of a utopian country. Its’ trains are functioning like clockwork, the health care is first-world, and the government is pretty efficient. It may come off as a far-too-controlled city as a result, but it’s a wild ride on the safe side.

See why we love this Lion City.

Five Things to Love about Singapore
There are beaches in Singapore.
  • Geography. Singapore, for all that it’s known as a small island, is actually comprised of 63 islands! You have a lot of choices when it comes to travelling in this country. You can call it the Little Red Dot that could.
  • Politics. It’s also one of the least corrupt country in the world. The city state has consistently placed inside the top ten of the Corruption Perceptions Index as published by Transparency International.
  • Culture. Experience a lot of different cultures within a small area. They have their own Chinatown, a Little India, and even Filipinos make their presence felt. The blend of believers in  Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam in the populace means that they celebrate the holidays as well.
  • The safest street food. The Lion City is ferocious when it comes to food safety. Their street food hawker stalls are graded from A (the highest) to D (the lowest) to provide consumers a more informed decision when it comes to the stalls’ housekeeping, food hygiene, and even the personnels’ hygiene. They even get points demerit should they fall off the wagon. Demerits ultimately result in suspension

    Entertainment

      • If theme parks get your blood flowing, Singapore will be your idea of heaven. They even have the first ever wildlife night park at the Night Safari.

If you think that museums are for the stuffy, stuff you! Just kidding, though. There is a Harry Potter-themed exhibition over at the Singapore Philatelic Museum with stamps from all over the world. And a Penny Black on display as well. There are museums for the art lover, for the nature buff, for the history geek, for everybody.

  • Singapore is Asia’s concert hub. The line-up for 2017 will surely empty your pockets with the exciting list of artists that they have coming.
  • Eventstravaganza galore. Pop concerts are not the only events happening over at this city. They also host the first street circuit in Asia with the Formula 1 race held there. The Women’s Tennis Association presently holds its’ WTA Finals every October there. If you’re not into sports, there are still plenty of other festivals in this Garden City that will keep you satisfied.
  • Above all, the best thing about Singapore is that it welcomes immigrants. You can dip your toes into the overseas job market by looking for a job here.

    Good luck!
