Famous for its restrictive laws and ultra strait-laced culture, Singapore is such a clean, safe Southeast Asian city that it sometimes gets a bad rap for its asceticism. However, there is a lot to get excited about here, including its fantastic food culture. Cafes are open 24 hours a day, hawkers sell food from all over Asia on virtually every street block, and you can sit down at a restaurant to a variety of delicious dishes like Bak Kut Teh and fish head curry. For the best selection of local food at the best prices, go to any one of the numerous hawker centers. These originated decades ago to give a dry and sanitary space for Singapore's street food vendors. Travelers to the Singapore gravitate toward Chinatown or Little India, or to one ... Read more

The city-state has recently opened two “integrated resorts” (also known as casinos) and other nightlife options are centered on the Riverside district. The mix of Chinese, Malay and Indian populations make for a year-round of colorful events like Lunar New Year, the Dragon Boat Festival, and Dewali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, and others.

Singapore's tropical temperatures harldy fluctuate throughout the year. What does vary is the rainfall, which peaks during monsoon season between November and March. Travel between April and October is more likely to come with dry days and fewer crowds, although there are sprinkles year-round and not much by way of an off season. Because of the cultural diversity of the country, you are also likely to encounter a festival while you are visiting; the country observes Christian, Hindu, Budhist, and Islamic (among other) holidays. No matter when you travel, it’s best to be prepared - pack a poncho, some sunscreen, and some heavy-duty deodorant.

While Singapore is modern and cosmopolitan in many ways, it's important to 'understand that LGBTQ freedoms are not what they are in other first world nations.' and there are 'local laws against LGBTQ community.' Overall, while it's 'best to be cautious,' 'there's nothing to worry about.'

Barcelona, Spain

If I had to choose my favourite city in the whole world, Singapore would be in the TOP 5 for sure. It is very elegant, beautiful, you can see the asian spirit but at the same time feel safe in terms of food and pollution. I would love to live there someday.

Interesting culture mix between Chinese, Malay and Indian. If you want a melting pot of Asia, this would be one.

A sparkling reputation and rubbish-free streets provide a facade that hides the warm nature of the city. You'll find warm hearted locals and signs of a young nation not ready to take up its mantle of South East Asia's finest throughout the bustling city. Make what you would of what you experience in the city - the multicultured population has as many opinions as the city's skyscrapers.

When the most Indonesian are popular for being avid shoppers while visiting Singapore, I like Singapore more than any-shopping-related-things (besides the fact that I've always been a budget traveler). I wonder more about the mix of its modernization and its traces of multi-culture history. I love walking along its neat streets, or visiting its lovely gardens, or tasting its rich dishes.
