One of the things we miss doing is traveling. Whether we simply just take a trip out of town or abroad, travel is one of those luxuries this pandemic has halted. With all the travel bans this health crisis has brought about, many of us have missed out on essential business trips and fun family vacations.
One of the places that we miss exploring is Singapore. With all the amazing sights and sounds that the small city-state has to offer, it is impossible for one to not fall in love with the Lion City. Whether you go around in a private hire car rental or just walk around the streets of Singapore, you surely will not miss seeing the things it is known for.
10 Things We Miss from Singapore
1. Clean Environment
If there’s one thing that makes Singapore stand out among its neighbors is the cleanliness and orderliness of the place. The Singaporean government has put in place strict rules and regulations about public behavior. Ever since its implementation, the city has been deemed as one of the most disciplined cities in the world. The government and its residents also work hard together to keep the city’s streets and public places clean and enjoyable for both locals and tourists.
2. Street Food
One of the most important things to do while in Singapore is to enjoy the wide gastronomical variety its streets have to offer. Singapore is a melting pot of cultures which is evident in its unique cuisine.
3. Universal Studios
With over 20 exciting attractions to offer, Universal Studios SG is one of the closest things Asians would have to enjoy western amusement theme parks. An entire day spent in the theme park is sure to thrill children of all ages.
Chinatown in Singapore is one of its iconic destinations. More than the shopping centers and restaurants, the cultural and historical value that it adds to the country’s beauty is what makes it so popular.
5. Orchard Road
Singapore’s center for retail and dining, Orchard Road is a 2.2-kilometer stretch that hosts several boutiques, shops, restaurants, and bars. If you’re in it for the shopping and the food, Orchard is the place to be.
6. Sentosa Island
Home to a lot of Singapore’s tourist attractions such as Merlion Park and Universal Studios, this sunny island was converted into a tourist attraction way back in 1972.
7. Singapore Flyer
Located in Singapore’s Downtown Core, this gigantic observation wheel stands tall and proud at a height of 540 feet and gives you a breathtaking 360-degree view of the famous Marina Bay.
8. Night Safari
Aside from the Singapore Zoo, the country also boasts of a night zoo for people to enjoy a new type of zoo that features more than a thousand nocturnal animals in their main element.
9. Multiple Islands
Most folks are surprised to find out that despite its size and reputation as a city-state, Singapore is actually an archipelago that is made up of 63 beautiful islands, each with their own appeal that continues to draw in locals and tourists.
10. The People
More than the places to visit and things to do, it is the people that we miss the most. The healthy mix of western and eastern cultures and values make Singaporeans one of the most disciplined and likable people anywhere.
While we miss going around the busy streets of Singapore, we will peacefully await and anticipate the time when we can once again take to the skies and enjoy everything SG has to offer.
