Singapore, me and my wife in the Traditional rikshaw transport on streets.

Hello, this is Singapore, one of the smallest countries in the world. It is an island state located off the southern tip of the Malaysian peninsula in Southeast Asia.


Singapore is consistently perceived as one of the least corrupt countries in the world, and the world's most expensive city.

To me, the following are two factors making Singapore more successful than other world countries:

Clean and Safe


> Death for drug traffickers under the law

> Singapore has penalties that include judicial corporal punishment in the form of caning

> Trial by jury was abolished in 1970 so that judicial decisions would rest entirely in the hands of appointed judges

> Singapore has been consistently rated among the least corrupt countries in the world

> Superior air quality and no traffic jams

Highly developed economy

> The Singaporean economy is known as one of the freest, most innovative, most competitive, most dynamic and most business-friendly

> The 2015 Index of Economic Freedom ranks Singapore as the second freest economy in the world

> the Ease of Doing Business Index has also ranked Singapore as the easiest place to do business for the past decade.

Of course, there are tons of great things to see, do and eat! These are my choices.

The view of Marina Bay

Marina Bay is the centerpiece of Singapore’s urban transition. The glittering skyscrapers of the Central Business District are surrounded by so many interesting spaces...

... making it the People's Bay. When modern Singapore was founded in 1819, the coast was still largely made up of marshes and sand flats. After 1822, Singapore’s first know land reclamation project was carried out. The south bank of the river was drained and filled with earth, so that godowns and trading houses could be built.

At 66.5 meters lenght, the observatory deck. The 151 meter long infinity pool. View to the east side with container ships. Singapore's port is the world's second busiest port in terms of total shipping tonnage.

The Singapore Flyer is one of the world’s largest observation wheels. This wheel has 28 airconditioned capsules, each one fits 28 people and it takes 28 minutes to do a complete rotation

The wheel initially rotated in a counter-clockwise direction when viewed from Marina Centre, but on 4 August 2008 this was reversed on the advice of Feng shui masters.

The Merlion is the national personification of Singapore. Its name combines "mer", meaning the sea, and "lion". The fish body represents Singapore's origin as a fishing village when it was called Temasek, which means "sea town" in Javanese.

As soon as the sun goes down, the city-state practically transforms itself from an efficient business hub to a buzzing network of bars, nightclubs and presentations of light shows. Enjoy some of those breathtaking captures!

Singapore River tour is a nice walk or cruise from Clark Quay to Marina Bay and will take you through the three Quays (Boat, Clarke and Robertson) of the city

Along this journey you'll pass through the spectacular architecture of the bridges as arteries of commerce across the river that contributed to Singapore's economic growth and rich history.

There are several other incredible points of interest in Singapore and here are some of them:

>Little India

>Malay heritage Centre

>Arab street area

>China town

The roles of these communities have changed throughout time, but today they mostly represent ethnic districts with a lot of tourists and local visitors.


However, the following two are international and mostly business related:

>Orchard Road or Orchard, known as the area of a major shopping belt and tourism attraction

>Changi Airport Singapore is one of the world's best airports. It is working perfectly fine for short layovers, but even better for longer ones. There is a theater, gaming station, different gardens, pool, lounges, stores, 24 hours restaurants and more.

Hope you enjoy this slide!

Spectra - the Marina Bay Sands Light and Water Show

Thinking about the closure of this page of the city that is not easy to describe and where pictures cannot fully express feelings we are bringing with us, we thought that the free spectacular Spectra water show will do it.

Lasers, LEDs, music, choreographed fountains and more are part of the 15 minutes remarkable presentation.

Enjoy our videos followed by a few more images as a good bye to Singapore
