Like Hong Kong, the small city state of Singapore is the economic powerhouse of the region. Thousands of international companies chose Singapore as their regional headquarter so you won’t only find tourists, but lots and lots of foreigners who call this island home. Compared to Hong Kong, Singapore is more organized and reserved, but at the same time, it’s an amazing destination for shoppers and tourists with numerous malls, high-end boutiques, magnificent architecture, and beautiful natural and cultural attractions like Gardens by the Bay, Singapore Botanic Gardens, and Supertree Grove. Marina Bay Sands and Sentosa Island are also famous attractions that keep Singapore full of visitors all year round. As the cultural melting pot, Singapore features a succulent range of mouthwatering dishes, from Nasi Lemak, a Malaysian dish of coconut rise, anchovies, cucumber and chili paste and Bak Kut The, a clear Chinese soup cooked with pork ribs and five spices, to fine western cuisine and delectable British crumpets for tea.
Tip: Singapore is hot and humid all year-round, with temperatures usually reaching over 30°C. Be prepared for rain at any time, which can be torrential but usually brief.
