Singapur – Lion's City Which Is an Economic Tiger

Published: 13.1.2020
Singapore is a relatively small city-state that rises above other states in Southeast Asia by being highly economically developed and economically ferocious. With nearly 6 million inhabitants, it is one of the most populous states in the world, which is also due to the high level of migration. Everybody in Singapore would simply want to live.

Its prosperous economy makes Singapore a relatively expensive place. Therefore, it is not unusual that tourists prefer to cross the famous Woodlands border bridge daily to the Malaysian city of Johor Bahru, where they have much cheaper accommodation, and to Singapore for trips. This land border is very busy and long queues await it.

To visit Singapore it is worth buying a tourist passport for 1 to 3 days. We used two days for $ 26 Singapore (of which $ 10 is a refundable deposit). With a passport you can travel unlimited public transport and get to know the whole city.

Singapore is a clean and green city that prides itself on its appearance. That is why he is also known for strict rules, and the violations are consistently fined. For all I mention the prohibition of chewing - chewing gum is available only in pharmacies. Violation of this rule deprived my friend of $ 60. Furthermore, you must not throw away cigarette butts, walk naked at home, cross the road, and if you are caught in vandalism, you will not avoid physical punishment. For possession of drugs even the death penalty.

This modern metropolis boasts not only a shopping center full of skyscrapers, but also a diverse ethnic population. For example, you can visit Little India, where the Indian minority lives. At their markets, you feel like you suddenly find yourself in a completely different world from Singapore. India is only two metro stops from Singapore. Here you can go to a Chinese restaurant and visit a Buddhist temple next door.

Singapore's history began in the 14th century and was very turbulent - Chinese, Malay, Siamese, Portuguese, British ... but everyone was aware of the strategic location of the city, which they used for business purposes.

What should you not miss in Singapore? Definitely an icon of the city - the famous Marina Bay Sands hotel and its surroundings. On the roof of the hotel there is a view (26 SGD), hotel guests can use the pool. There is a large shopping center down the hotel, including a Ferrari shop and boating. On the other side of the hotel is a large park, where you will find ponds, different kinds of trees, plants and shrubs and especially Supertree Grove - artificial trees, which are lit in the evening, you can walk in their crowns.
