Only two hours away from our little Malaysian town of Mersing, lies the country island of Singapore with a population of 5.4 million people. On this island you won’t find swaying palm trees, turquoise Ocean or powdery white sand. Instead you’ll find some of the cleanest streets in Asia, immaculate city gardens and some of the world’s most expensive property prices. With the highest percentage of millionaires in the world, a booming economy and home to the well-heeled, you better go prepared to lose money and lots of it.
We knew it was one of the most expensive cities in the world, but didn’t quite grasp the essence of this, until we had to buy food, drinks, coffee and water. We didn’t get to eat or capture as much food as we would’ve liked to, but here’s a taste of the beauty that can be found on its river, streets and high above the city.
Have you been in Singapore? What was your first impression of it?
