WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM Singapore?

Singapore, the city in a garden, is known today for the Supertree Light Show in Garden by the Bay thanks to Instagram influencers. I remember growing up and hearing stories that you could go to jail for spitting gum on the ground. Yes, Singapore took drastic measures to clean up its city after it became independent in 1965. Before independence, Singapore was a major British port city. With a mash of cultures, religions and traditions all built on mostly swampy lands, it’s easy to see how things got messy. While the laws might seem outlandish to some of us, they have really improved life expectancy and quality of life for its citizens. Take the no flushing and stocked toilet paper and soap fines. Crazy, right? But in most of Asia, you get used to peeing in a hole and pouring a disguuuusting bucket of water into the hole to “flush” it. Toilet paper? Only if you bring your own or get lucky and someone is selling you three squares for 100 baht outside. 

Singapore is one of the few city-states of the world, along with the Vatican, Monaco. (These are similar to grey areas like Hong Kong and Macau are similar.) Singapore has 5.7 million people in 720 sq kilometers. Compare this to Los Angeles, four million people in 1,302 sq kilometers. 

Transportation is easy and clean to do. The train comes right to the world-famous airport. We had to buy a metro card to get on. This was not cheap, but can be sold back upon leaving for almost as much as the card was worth.
