I have been to Singapore several times and I keep coming back...

Reason # 1: Singapore is a tourist-friendly city, making even the first-time traveler feel confident moving about in the city on his own. You won't see any rubbish here. The streets are clean and the gardens are well maintained. Motorists are all disciplined. Traffic rules are followed and the transportation system is reliable.

Reason # 2: You never run out of things to do!

* Walk to Merlion Park

* Make a wish on the Fountain of Wealth

* Get a fish foot spa at the Night Safari

* Admire the big colorful aquariums in Underwater World in Sentosa

* Catch a show at the Esplanade

* Go on a hot air balloon and see a 360-degree view of the entire city

* Eat in one of the many restaurants along Clark Quay

Reason # 3: Shopping along Orchard Road and eating that SGD 1.00 ice cream sandwich sold on the street.

Reason # 4: Chili crab and Laksa. Enough said. :-)

I heard that Universal Studios will open in 2010 so that's another attraction that will draw local and foreign tourists. There is a lot that Singapore has to offer for families, independent travelers and tour groups. Whether you're going here for adventure, relaxation, retail therapy or food tripping, I'm sure you won't be disappointed!
