Singapore: A city within a garden.
I’ve left Singapore and am now spending the next week in Hong Kong.
Luckily this is plenty of time to see everything on my list! I’m starting the week by reflecting on the time I spent there.
First and foremost, Singapore was beautiful! It originally wasn’t on my list to come here. If I’m being completely honest, I didn’t even know it was it’s own country or where it was before I looked it up. I just knew a guy back in Chicago who said he was from here. I am so glad I went out of my way to make a stop in Singapore!
It’s obvious even to the oblivious (me) that a lot of thought went into the design of the city, the construction of the MRT (mass-rapid-transit) system, and into how accessible McDonalds would be to the residents.
Comparable to Chicago, Singapore is quite expensive compared to southeast Asia. Instead of paying $4/night for a dorm bed, the price hovers around $20/night.
My wallet is having small heart attacks as we speak.
