When it comes to Southeast Asia, there is so much choice to pick from in terms of countries.
Obviously, you want to visit every single country because Asia is–well, Asia is Asia! But, for some, that isn’t possible. Not everyone can swan off for a year and take in the sights, sounds and tastes, you know. If you are a part of this unlucky category, don’t worry because there is always a solution.
In this case, the solution is to choose one country and go back to do the rest later in life. So, which one do you choose and why? The answer is Singapore.
Hospitable is a bit of an understatement. All you have to do is look at the picture above and you will figure that out quite quickly. When it comes to hotels, Singapore has some of the best in the world. Come on, who else puts a ship on the top of a building? Other than the UAE, there aren’t too many countries that can compete with this kind of luxury. Of course, hotels of this caliber are a bit pricey, although not too pricey in comparison. But, the good news is that Singapore has lots of hotels and hostels that all keep to a high standard. Wherever you choose, you won’t complain about the hospitality.
One reason for travelling is to sample the nightlife. Trekking around the sights is brilliant, but you have to let off steam every once in awhile. In Singapore, ‘once in a while’ means every night because the nightlife is so good. Whether you want to dance the night away or sip a beer over the Marina, Singapore has it all. And, you might even catch a few celebrities in the mix, too. The nightlife throughout Southeast Asia is awesome, and Singapore is no different.
So, you hear this about every place you want to visit. And, in most places, it is true. It is especially true of Southeast Asia. The food from Thailand to Japan ranges from noodles to sushi, and it is the best in the world. What Southeast Asia doesn’t do too well is dessert.
When it comes to dessert, you might find yourself eating a sweet fruit or a very dry piece of cake, and that won’t do for those of you with a sweet tooth. Thankfully, Singapore has the answer. Not only does it have great desserts, but it also has a varied cuisine that perfectly complements it. And, if you want more, you can always order it from Cat & the Fiddle. The food in Singapore is that great that you don’t even have to be in the country to take advantage. You should, but you don’t have to.
Sick Sporting Scene
Finally, Singapore is home to some of the best sporting events on the planet. Although it might not be obvious, it is the truth. The best, though, has to be the Formula One Grand Prix.
Now, motor car racing might not be your scene, and it isn’t everyone’s scene. However, the overall experience is awesome. The sights and sounds of the cars are unbelievable and they even put on a concert after the race. Even better, Singapore has some of the cheapest prices.
Obviously, these are just few reasons to visit the Lion City. If you want to know more, check out this Singapore travel guide.
