Even though we only visited Singapore for a few days, I was left with a great impression of this small island-country. Now when I think of Singapore the words: shopping, food, clean, and green immediately come to mind.
Singapore is a mecca for shopping. There are countless plazas, malls, and shops. Ubiquitous signs for sales and discounts are displayed on sidewalks. When locals and tourists are not shopping, they seem to be relishing in Singapore’s other treasure, food.
International cuisine is very easy to find in Singapore, one only needs to walk into a food court to find a handful of different cuisines. While we were in Singapore, we tried all sorts of food, including Korean, Thai and Taiwanese dishes.
Besides being a paradise for shoppers and food lovers, Singapore is a very attract country due to its cleanliness. Its downtown streets are extremely clean compared to other cities I have visited. I also noted, there were a lot of green manicured trees, plants, and bushes decorating the city.
Similar mascots were found throughout the city, expressing different ideas and thoughts. I thought these mascots were great!
I also loved how subway stations were named after little places within the city.
Although Singapore may be small, it definitely has character. The cleanliness and green vegetation, particularly the palm trees, were the two factors that really set Singapore aside from the other countries.
