For some, international travel is almost common place; but for others, the idea may be slightly intimidating.
No worries! Singapore is a beautiful, safe island where most citizens are fluent in English, but may also speak Mandarin Chinese, Malay, and Tamil.
As for the overall lure of the island of Singapore, the travel writer Anita Kapoor has said,
“There isn’t anywhere else on Earth where people confluence the way they do in Singapore. From visitors and transients to citizens, this progressive island and gateway to South East Asia is a dynamic mix of cultures, ideas, and histories neither ethnic nor exotic, but instead, the essence of modern Asia – sparklingly savvy, with a touch of old school. First time visitors should expect to be surprised, confused, and charmed.”
To read more and to answer questions about travel to Singapore regarding travel visas, currency, language, dining, accommodation, history, points of interest, and even suggested sight-seeing itineraries, the Singapore Tourist Bureau has a truly extraordinary user-friendly website.
