Some friends and I traveled to Singapore en-route to Bali earlier in June. We were there for 2 nights and tried to pack as much into our stay as possible. Singapore was more coincidental than it was choice but it turned out to be an enlightening experience of how people on the other side of development live. Being in the top 10 of the world’s most expensive cities, you can only imagine the sort of damage it can do on a fairly average developing country pocket. So we had an itinerary and as far as possible stuck to it.
