Onto destination number two… Singapore!
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I found out we were going to Singapore. I didn’t really know much about it at all. I was pleasantly surprised! Arriving at Changi Airport, I immediately noticed how clean, organised and efficient it was. I later found that this is reflective of Singapore as a whole. I didn’t know this at the time, but Singapore is actually known for its impeccable cleanliness (much to my liking). Other aspects of Singapore also appealed to me. For example, it is known as ‘The Garden City‘ and everywhere you look there are beautiful, colourful flowers. So it’s both clean and green (how i like it). I also liked it because I suppose it resonates with London a bit – in that it’s a vibrant and cosmopolitan hub (it may also resonate with London due to the fact that it was once a British colony). You can see that the city is flourishing. There are lots of different people living and working here, from different walks of life. As a result, you can experience all the different cultures they bring to the city. It also has that contrast of new and old – modern architecture and historical buildings. Hopefully you can see all these elements of the city in the photos I have captured. Like London, rather unsurprisingly, it is also very expensive. In fact, it is currently regarded as the world’s most expensive city. But on the flip side, at least the weather in Singapore is much more pleasant then rainy London!
