Singapore is a fascinating city and well worth a visit. Unfortunately most people who have been to Singapore are only here while transiting through to other destinations and I would say it gets a bit short changed. Our first visit here in 2016 was just that, a 35 hour stop over where we raced around and stuffed as many sights as possible into a very limited time frame.
As we venture out from our house sitting location a number of things strike us. The first is, this is a very clean city. Yes there are cigarette butts in the bushes, but the sidewalks and roadways are clean and the MRT (the public transit subway system) is immaculate. Not to mention inexpensive, efficient, and clean, did I mention clean?
One of the other aspects of travelling full time is when you have dental issues it is a little exciting searching for a good dentist. Fortunately for us, when Karen chipped her tooth (crunchy squid) we found an excellent dentist just down the road. Luckily this happened in Singapore and not Australia or Canada where it likely would have cost twice as much.
Without a doubt the next time we are transiting through Singapore we will make sure to schedule in a few days to relax and enjoy this gem of a city.
Wonderful blog, Mr. Pecksen. You somehow found a way to connect your story and passion of the city to my heart. It is wonderful in contrast to western philosophies that such clean, co-existance is possible. If only one day. Thank you for the read, and great info.
Thank you very much. I am pleased you enjoyed it.
