When you think of Singapore, what do you think of? The efficient transportation system, including one of the world’s busiest airports? The affordable public housing for residents? The tasty Hawker food? The convenience and abundance of shopping malls? The lush greenery resulting from the “garden city” vision? The beautiful skyline? That it is a key Asian business hub? Is it the spectacular economic growth, despite being such a small country?
Singapore is a very small country with a population of 5.6M people. I love the city, the food and the people here but definitely don’t like the humidity (I can handle the dry heat better). Since Singapore is so close to the equator, it’s very hot and humid. There’s only 2 seasons here a year: hot and hotter!
I really enjoyed the Supertree Grove light show, one of Singapore’s top 5 landmarks. There are two free 15 minute light shows every night. The light displays are between 25 to 50 metres tall, these iconic tree-like vertical gardens are designed with large canopies that provide shade in the day and come alive with an exhilarating display of light and sound at night!
This is my 3rd visit here and because of meeting a couple of new local friends, Mike and Rosalind, they made this trip the most memorable one!
Heading to Auckland, New Zealand now!
