Singapore is no stranger to accolades. The island is not only an ideal place for expats to settle in, but it was also recently named as the best city of the future by the Asian Correspondent.
Despite its small size, with a land area of only 719.1 kilometres and a population of just above 5.7 million people, Singapore is indeed a world-class destination and here’s why:
It’s easy to get around
Singapore’s train system is considered the best in Southeast Asia and the world. The city’s trains can take you to various destinations quickly and efficiently.
Excellent service everywhere you go
Whether you’re shopping for clothes or enjoying the beautiful Siloso Beach in Sentosa, the service you get is beyond excellent as the staff is well-trained and facilities are top-of-the-range.
One of the safest cities in the world
In 2016, Singapore became the second safest destination in the world, only a few points behind Tokyo. The law is strictly implemented even when it comes to minor violations such as spitting on the sidewalk, jaywalking, chewing gum while on board the train and smoking in public places.
Cleanliness is the order of the day
Singapore’s streets are spotless as officials apprehend people who litter – littering is, in fact, a violation that merits rather hefty fines. The Singapore Government also implements strict cleaning procedures for every public facility.
The airport is amazing
Most travellers consider Changi Airport as the best international airport in the world. It has numerous restaurants and bars plus a wide-range of amenities for those in transit including a spa, themed gardens, butterfly habitats, a swimming pool and movie theatres.
A foodie’s paradise
Singapore is a melting pot of cultures. Whether you’re hungry for Samosa or a plate of Hainanese chicken rice, Singapore has them all and offers them at low prices too. But if fine dining is your thing, there are also a number of Michelin Star restaurants within the city. Best of all, food-hygiene standards are strictly implemented, ensuring you of a delightful gastronomic experience
