It's fun to see this pop up again! We never did go on that trip, as my husband was nervous about trying out Asia. However, we just got back from Japan on Saturday and had a fabulous time. Since we had such a great time we are discussing going back to Asia and Singapore came up in those discussions so hopefully eventually I will get there!

I brought this thread back up since there's been quite a bit of new talk about Singapore. It's too bad that you didn't make your trip. I don't understand why your husband would be nervous about going to Asia and especially Singapore. I'm more comforatble in many parts of Asia than in many parts of Europe and also parts right here in the U.S.. Happy Travels!

Guenmai, I don't know what he was nervous about to be honest. I think it was more the Bali part, and perhaps the Hong Kong part, that made him nervous. We've traveled extensively around Europe without any problems but he never had much interest in Europe. I talked him into going to Japan with FF miles, although he was looking forward to visiting as well. In the end we had a great time. I would love to go to Singapore, and I posted this because I couldn't find much info. Hopefully this sparks a little conversation! ;)

Singapore is a "garden city", it is very green. It also a clean & safe city with very low crime rate. Very safe to walk on the street alone.

If have any emergency just dial 999 to report to the police, they will be right there to asist you.

You can travel around Singapore using MRT (railway system), by public bus or taxi. Singapore is a very small country, everything very convenient.
