Welcome to Singapore

Singapore - a unique country, one of the world's best airports, and one of the cleanest city in the world.

My first visit was many years ago and I cannot even remember when - but I had the chance to visit Singapore for the second time in May 2007. The country is still beautiful but there is only one thing I have noticed. Litters that I did not see before can be visible nowadays in front of a big supermarket. Maybe I was just expecting too much because of the city's good reputation or maybe this happens rarely in Singapore.

What I am going to emphasize in my Singapore page are its good side as there are too many. Good food, good accommodation, excellent tourist attraction, and hospitable local people are the reasons why I enjoyed my stay. If you are visiting the city, I am inviting you to browse my tips which I am starting to build and update helpful information.

Yes, Singapore offers much more than the hustle and bustle of city streets. Proof of this are festivals and events that is being held and enjoyed by tourists and locals alike. To give you an idea on what is happening in Singapore, I am giving you a birds-eye-view of events every month. Read on.....
