If you’re traveling about Southeast Asia, chances are you’ll find yourself in Singapore at some point, even if just for 24 hours or a flight connection. But Singapore is a fantastic city, one of the best in Asia.
Above all else, Singapore is famous for being such a unique city. In fact, it’s unlike any other city you’ll ever visit. It’s a beautiful, modern metropolis that’s also historical and overflowing with green space.
It is heaven for foodies, and paradise for lovers of art and cutting-edge architecture. A place of pure joy for those who love slightly exotic travel. And for those who enjoy upscale hotels and 21st-century amenities at the same time.
Hyper-Modern Architecture, Incredible Food
In addition to its green space, one thing about Singapore that knocks you back is its hyper-modern architecture, which melds well with the historical elements of the city. You’ve probably never seen anything like it. Anywhere. You’ll see plenty of it during your 24 hours in Singapore and in this video.
It’s creativity on steroids and has become the image of the city for millions worldwide.
Perhaps its most noteworthy architectural element is the Marina Bay Sands Hotel that rises above the ArtScience Museum on the bayfront, which appears to be a flower opening, as seen from below. Across the bay is the Singapore Flyer, a giant Ferris wheel that punctuates the skyline.
Singapore is also famous for its food. In fact, it’s consdier by many to be one of the best, if not the best, food cities in the world. It is so celebrated that celebrity chefs from around the world – including Joël Robuchon, Wolfgang Puck, Gordon Ramsay, and Andre Chiang, among others – have set up shop here.
