Comments: Singapore is a dynamic & bustling city. It is very different from the scenes I'm used to seeing, but I'm enjoying the good buys, and the sights as well!
I came to Singapore for the asian leg of the Extreme Sailing series and am putting up at the Swissotel Stamford. The variety of weather and extent of developments in infrastructure are amazing. It is also a very welcoming place to be in. Clarke Quay is my favourite place to paint the town red!
I'm here for an academic exchange till December and while I haven't been as adventurous getting around Singapore, the use of Singlish is something truly unique!
If I could only use two words to describe Singapore, I'd say its peaceful and cosmopolitan.
A great place I've discovered is the Marina Barrage, which is a beautiful place to relax when the sun sets. There are certainly lots of great buys in Singapore – I got my netbook for S$700!
The best food? Sup Tulang (mutton bone marrow soup)!
My ship, USNS Mercy, stopped over for a few days of rest and relaxation following the first half of a humanitarian mission encompassing several countries. I like the dichotomy between parks and forested areas, and urban areas and I wished I knew more places of interests and event happenings before arriving. Am definitely recommending Singapore to my family and friends for its one-of-a-kind combination of cultures, history, food, shopping and landscapes.
I've only been to Clarke Quay and Ion Orchard as I'm only here for three days. I hope to come back to this clean and beautiful city very soon – there's just too much to see and do.
I like Sim Lim Square and Chinatown for its array of cheap buys and the tasty Hainanese chicken rice.
I am impressed by the scale of the buildings here and the chicken rice. Time spent here was too short – will definitely make it a point come by soon!
The weather here is much hotter and humid than it is in San Diego. I'm in the security industry so I like checking out the various clubbing scenes when I travel – the one in Singapore is definitely exciting!
This is my first time leaving South Africa and I've met so many people who are more than willing to lend a helping hand to a lost foreigner! Island life in Sentosa is amazing and I loved the lights and décor in Chinatown. The alcohol's more expensive here but there is definitely heaps more shopping to do.
Did I also mention that I'm a brave eater?
