City State Singapore

SINGAPORE !

One of the nicest and cleanest places I have been to in Asia and in the world probably. When I landed at the International airport I had to take the tube to the city centre, when entering the metro train, some little candy paper was flying around and it just landed on the ground in front of me, someone must have lost it, almost directly it got picked up by some local lady who then kept it in her purse and when she got off the train she threw it away in the trashcan. You don’t see this in Europe, people picking up someone else its trash to put it where it belongs. Maybe that’s why it’s so clean in Singapore because people care more about the environment and they want to live in a clean city. The only place where I do saw trash on the ground and lying around in some corners was in Little India. It’s a neighbourhood with a lot of Indian shops, restaurants, etc…
In general I really like my stay there. I stayed 2 days in a small hotel, the Bencoolen hotel its a good budget hotel in the centre and close to a MRT station. Great breakfast also and nice rooms. The most known hotel however will be the Marina Sands Bay Hotel with its swimming pool on the rooftop, offcourse I had to stay there 1 night just to have the crazy experience of swimming high up in the sky πŸ™‚ it’s not cheap for a budget traveller like myself but Β it was worth the stay, the view from the pool over the skyline of Singapore is just amazing. Other than that I did also visit the Gardens by the bay just next to the hotel with its Flower dome and cloud mountain. The big super trees connected by these skybridges, I just haven’t seen anything like it in my life. If you go to Singapore this is what you should visit. Since I like movies and cartoons I had to go visit “Universal Studios Singapore” to spend a great day with the Madagascar penguins πŸ™‚ The theme park is situated on Sentosa Island which is connected by cablecars to mainland Singapore.
