I like Kampong Glam and Little India and some of the buildings such as the Gateway, Parkview Square, Suntec City, The Esplanade and the Flyer. I only want to see the Marina Bay sands, it's probably the most awesome building in Singapore. Besides food, Singapore is also good for clubbing, you should try that. The thing is just, it tends to get boring after a while. And it's definitely too small as a country. I prefer Malaysia over Singapore any time (money is gone in the Lion city pretty fast...), but I'd always use Singapore's airport for trips to East Asia and stay there few days.

Yes, I can understand liking rules, security and cleanliness. Every time I leave the rough countries I am living in the highlight is that fact people know and follow traffic rules. And of course you are right, the food is amazing and it helps pack on the pounds if you are not careful. Hi Nik,

Great article, and one that I agree with in general, although what you listed was plenty enough to keep Singapore interesting to me. Sure enough, it ain't got no beaches to boast about like Bali or Maldives, but when I do go to Singapore (which is quite often) the things I love has got more to do with security, cleanliness and ease of transport... My fave part about Singapore is without a doubt, the food (well my girlfriend is there as well, but don't tell her that!). The Katong area is a great place for dinner. Joo Chiat is just nearby, and I would sometime head towards East Coast Park after the meal to just wind down. Cycling on the coast is enjoyable, and something that I appreciate being able to do, and then at the end of ECP there's a hawker center that serves some of my fave food, a great way to end the night (explains those extra kgs I always pack after a Singapore trip!) Junko's point is a valid one. I look forward to moving to Singapore in future because that's where I want to start a family.. :) safety is a primary concern.. but true, it doesn't make for a good story :p Hiya Todd!

Of course I don't have kids so my perspective on countries are a bit different. I like them rough and teaming with possible stories of thing going wrong. Point taken on the kids front. Hope you are all adjusting to the cold weather in Boston. Hi Junko,

Daycare fee was inexpensive (a bit less than half of what we are paying now in Cambridge), most condominiums have a playground and a swimming pool, it is completely safe to walk around, you can drink tap water etc. Louis Vuitton is expensive, but shop assistants even at such expensive shops are nice and friendly. In face, I paid about 100 USD to get my Hermes watch repaired in Singapore although I was told it would cost around 700 USD in Japan. I agree, Orchard is not a great place for shopping, but I also liked Bugis a lot. Have you been to Mustafa Center? It's a big (and cluttered) shopping center near Little India where you can buy anything from Banana leaves to computers. Of course, I didn't like everything about the country, but it's a good destination at least for a family with small kids. Sorry for my loooooooong comment.
