Singapore

Country #59

Mixture of people,
Modernity and progress,
This city-country.

I visited Singapore in 2015, just for one day, while I was making the move from living in the UK to living in Vanuatu. I was lucky enough to have a close friend living in Singapore, so I met up with him and we went for brunch, then went to a man-made beach area and chilled for a few hours. It was all very pleasant. As expected, things were well-organised and modern. Places like Singapore can get negative reviews because of the supposed lack of a distinctive 'character', but they have made incredible progress in economic terms, and in terms of quality of life it is quite a remarkable place, considering its past.
