Singapore -no longer just an endless mall with an airport attached. (but leave time to visit the #1 airport in the world complete with swimming pool & movie theater!) Fused with expensive casinos, football size infinity pools & ethnic food markets all wrapped into an ultra modern, obsessively clean city (warning, no gum, but warm toilets.) Don’t miss the Marina Bay area comprised of Vertical Gardens, promenade w/nighttime light shows, cutting edge designers, the Singapore Flyer (world’s largest ferris wheel) steamy jungles & night safaris. Whether traveling alone or on romantic vacation don’t forget to have that Singapore Sling at the world famous Raffles Hotel. Want to travel in style?
