Today, the last picture from the small island country.
How did you like this month on my blog?
Have you been to Singapore or are you planning to visit it?
Tomorrow, we’ll go to a … nice, rainy place. 😉
You can also use Singapore as a base to explore nearby countries, e.g., Malaysia or Indonesia.
Singapore – Sea Town
Singapore had also other names in past, e.g., “island at the end of a peninsula” or “sea town”.
There is a children’s song “Singapura, Oh Singapura”.
“Singapura” is another name of Singapur, and comes from the words “Lion Head”, “simha” is lion and “pura” means city.
My favorite way of visiting Singapore was by boat.
Highly recommended! 🙂
While being on the island, you can enjoy the view of Singapore city;
I actually, liked to look at the modern city more from “outside”, than from “inside”. 😉
Singapore consists of many islands,
mentioned yesterday Kusu Island is only one of them.
Singapore – Kusu Island
Kusu Island (Tortoise Island) is a lovely place for a day trip
(unfortunately, staying overnight is not allowed).
Singapore – Hotel
Marina Bay Sands is a famous resort in Singapore,
that’s almost a symbol of the city.
Singapore – Lion Head
The lion head (today’s picture) is a symbol of Singapore;
and Singapore is even called as a Lion City.
Singapore has its own special rules,
e.g., chewing gum was forbidden in Singapore, but later some exceptions were added.
Cycling is allowed, but as you see, not everywhere.
In Singapore, you’ll see buildings under contraction,
the city is still growing and getting more and more modern.
I heard someone comparing Singapore with New York,
but you cannot really compare them.
New York is rather old, Singapore is rather new; they are different.
Do you agree?
Singapore is rather known as a modern city with many skyscrapers.
But there are also green areas and parks, so it’s not so bad.
Singapore – Zoo
As I already mentioned, I don’t like zoos, but sometimes, while traveling, I visit a zoo, especially if they have some typical animals for a given place.
The zoo in Sinapore was big and looked quite good.
Men of the forest, i.e., orangutans (orang utans), can be seen in Singapore, but only in a zoo.
I’m rather against zoos, but the one in Singapore was quite nice.
Singapore – Little India
If you’re not sure are you still/already in Chinatown or Little India,
check the menu in any nearby restaurant – it’ll answer your doubts. 😉
Singapore – Chinatown
While being in Singapore and exploring all modern areas, don’t forget to visit two special districts – Chinatown and Little India.
Singapore has 28 districts.
You don’t have to visit all of them, but check different places in Singapore to get an idea of its diversity.
Singapore is a very unique country,
it’s very modern, clean and safe,
but you’ll also find here many different districts that don’t really fit to this description.
“A bit of everything”, as I mentioned before. 🙂
