CULTURE

Singapore is a society built on a rich diversity of culture and Heritage (A combination of Asian and European cultures), with one of the most diverse cultures mixes in the world. Respect is their motto and almost all communities host events and festivals throughout the year, encouraging other people to learn more about each other. Many different temples from many religions could be also found along the island. 

ARCHITECTURE

Singapore is famous for its modern architecture and tall skyscrapers with breathtaking skyline; but it has also managed to preserve its architecture legacy from a range of influences and styles from different cultures and ages that is worth taking a look to. A merger of old and new. 

NATURE

Called “the Garden City”, (The greenest city in Asia) Singapore is home to a hundred of gardens and conservation programs, mixing modern architecture with green spaces to provide citizens and tourists with a space from the hustle of the city. One of the most densely populated countries in the world, it always come with new initiatives to promote sustainability.

The local cuisine is one of the top reasons why people visit Singapore. Thanks to its cultural mix, its local food is unique and comprises many cuisines with strong and delightful flavors. Visiting a hawker centre (open-air complex with a variety of inexpensive local food) is something you shouldn’t miss.

In Singapore the standard voltage is 230 V and the frequency is 50 Hz. That’s the standard voltage in the UK, Europe, Australia and most of Asia and Africa; If you are traveling from the US you will need an adaptor.

CURRENCY

The Singapore Dollar  is the official currency. 1 USD equals 1.43 Singapore dollars (as of 2020). Although foreign currency are accepted at tourist centres, I would recommend to get some local currency, that can be easily withdrawn from the ATMs. Major credit card companies are also widely accepted. 

SAFETY

Singapore is not just extremely clean but also extremely safe, one of the safest in Asia. However, petty crime could exist (like anywhere else). Use your common sense and keep your valuables close, just like you would somewhere else.
