Arriving in Singapore entailed a bit of culture shock – everything was so clean, efficient and organized.
The first thing I did was drink from a water fountain (which will probably be the first thing I do in Canada too – or a tap, whatever’s available) and then walked through the airport and customs in minutes. It was just that organized.
The city streets were calm, empty, traffic lights functioned, there was visible greenery, there were no motorbikes, and it was not chaotic in the least. Best of all, I think I only heard two horns the entire weekend.
We spent the first night up on the Singapore Flyer seeing a beautiful skyline of the city, then walked through the Helix Bridge to the Marina Bay Promenade along the Singapore River near some stunning gardens.
The next day was spent exploring the rest of the city, using the MRT system which was the cleanest, safest, most efficient transit system I have ever seen. I seriously would have eaten off the floor in there (had food and drink been allowed). . .
