Gateway to Southeast Asia
Gateway to a tropical paradise -
When we say Gateway to Southeast Asia, it means the all year warm and humid country 'Singapore'. This is where high-class elites go to have a few moments of solace, where genius minds in the world ponder over ideas about new technology and innovation. With rainforests dominating the country, the connecting 22-meter high OCBC Skyway overlooks the city. Multicultural history represented through art, architecture and folklores.
The multicultural epicenter of the world
In Singapore, you will find many cultures living harmoniously in tightly-packed neighborhoods. You'll find a fascinating mix of architecture packed into small spaces that draw from a complex cultural heritage at kampong glam. Take a walk along Haji Lane admiring the Malay murals on the walls and streets bustling with shopaholics, or you can spend a few minutes taking in the jaw-dropping gold and white structure of the sultan mosque.
A part of Singapore is known as Little India due to the colorful Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple, an opulent temple dedicated to the goddesses Kali and Parvati and a friendly neighborhood packed with delicious food stalls with loud tones of Bollywood music and delightful fragrance of curry spices drifting in the air.
Explore the China town, where the streets are filled with blood-red and gold. You don't have to ask around as the loud clanging comes through food stalls. You see a smiling chef showcasing his skills of throwing the noodles in the air and catching them accurately while standbys hold their breath at such mastery.
Glimpse into futuristic wonders of nature
Gardens of the Bay is where you will find gigantic, glowing super-trees, a cloud forest, the world's tallest human-made waterfall and brightly colored flower gardens. You will get a glimpse of how it might look 5o years down the line when humans with the power of modern technology take over, creating something so beautiful bending the rules of nature. It is also a scary thought, but you should enjoy the gleaming beauty for now.
