"Materialism" Singapore Favorite Tip by phil_uk_net

  Three Ferraris and a Porsche

Fondest memory: Singapore, like Miami Beach and the Kings Road in London, has a disproportionately high number of performance cars on the road. In Singapore even mid-range European luxury cars are about 300,000 SGD so I hate to think what these beasts cost. The accumulation of wealth and material things though, and the conspicuous display of wealth, is of extreme importance to Singaporeans. Flashy mobile phones, designer clothes, Rolex watches and luxury cars are what it's all about here.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
