Representing the spirit of modern Asia, Singapore is a progressive island where one can witness the vibrant fusion of cultures, ethnicity, communities and most importantly, people. The place is a complete package full of excitement, surprises and charm, especially for the first time visitors.
Singapore is a cosmopolitan city-state, which, over the years, has grown from its tag of a dull state to reinvent itself as a dynamic city and one of the Southeast Asia's most modern destinations. Spread 42 km (26 miles) east to west and 23 km (14 miles) north to south, today Singapore is one of the world's leading shipping and banking hub on the economic front. This garden city is also a melting pot of cultures, combining together different ideas, cuisines, new architectures going well with the gleaming hint of old school. One can witness the Chinese, Indian, Malay and European influence in the daily life of Singapore adding to its charm. The incredible shopping malls, classy boutiques, departmental stores on Orchard Road, the exotic elements of Chinatown and Little India and the world-class nightlife span across the spotless land of Singapore. Expensive with respect to South-eastern standards, the city offers a plethora of other options for entertainment such as Sentosa Island, Singapore Zoo, Botanic Garden, Marina Bay Sands, Tiger Balm Garden, Night Market etc. With picture-perfect skyline and city centre bustling with people, Singapore is an amazing destination offering everything a traveller could think of.

I visited this one-of-a-kind theme park with my cousins and it was the best memory I have with them till date. After clicking the clichéd picture in front of the classic Universal Studios globe-like structure, we went on to spend the day visiting the rides and shows in the themed zones. My younger self was especially fascinated meeting characters from Shrek, the yellow lovable minions from Despicable Me and even Marilyn Monroe. We spent most of the day going on rides, including but not limited to rollercoasters, river-raft rides and ferris wheels. Watch out for exciting live street performances by your favourite characters!
Singapore is a country like no other and had me in love the from the very second I landed there. It has an extremely lively and welcoming vibe and is incredibly safe and easy to navigate around having lots to do and see. It is the melting pot of cultures, languages, and traditions. Whether it is the glitzy skyscrapers of downtown Singapore or the historic districts, it has something in store for everyone; making me come back time and again. Singapore is a fine city in every aspect, the rules adding to its charm.
The symbol of Singapore the Merlion (Half-fish and half-lion) represents the growth of Singapore. Located inside the Merlion park, it can be reached from the Raffles Place MRT Station. Although the park was crowded I found it worth the visit. Located adjacent to the popular One Fullerton Hotel, the park is located in downtown Singapore close to the Central Business District. Out of all the times I have been there, I found that it is best to go in the early evening when the weather is pleasant. It offers beautiful views of the Marina Bay and other parts of Singapore making the sunsets spectacular. After the sunset one can see the breathtaking views of the lit up, glitzy skyscrapers and downtown Singapore.
