Taking Off To Singapore

From the sleek skyscrapers of the central business district to some of the Asia’s best shopping with the malls on Orchard Road. From the lazy drift of Singapore River’s traditional bumboats to the wild adventure of the Singapore Zoo’s night Safari. From the teashops of Chinatown to the kebab grills of Arab Street to the curry houses of Little India.


flight delayed!!!… what do I do now??
it's gonna be a longgggggg wait ugghhhh!!!

I asked the saleslady if I could
have one picture with her, she stared
at me and said, in a mild voice,
“… sorry, not allowed …”!!!

…. boring… boringgg…
it’s another three hours of waiting …
aaahhhhh… !!!


A visit to Singapore guarantees to be an exciting experience. The city of skyscrapers, five-star hotels, cable cars, beach resorts, and the famous hospitality and smile. The city is a blend of modernity, sophistication, and antiquity. A culmination of old and modern co-existence. The present Singapore is alive and vibrant, full of life and vigor, and a continuous dream of a more prosperous tomorrow.

Singapore is a dynamic, modern Asian city, where culture and color tantalize the senses from the minute you touch down. A place where the melting pot of cultures delivers an ancient traditions, arts and architecture. This irresistibly lively metropolis represents a fine synergy of east and west.

Full of life and vitality—the city has so many places to explore; Singapore Zoo, one of the most beautiful zoos in the world, the Jurung Bird Park, home of over 600 species of colorful birds, or visit the surrounding islands.

Right on Singapore’s doorstep lies the nature-lover’s paradise that is Sentosa Island. Take the nature walk up the Dragon Trail through lush secondary rainforest and soak in the scenic views at the summit of of Mt. Imbiah, overlooking picturesque neighboring islands.

Visited Singapore many times but not getting around,

Thanks for posting a comment, Sayz. I've been there twice and plan to make a stop over again, may be, in December this year. It's really fun. They probably added new spots to see. Tag along some of your friends, to make it more exciting.
