Singapore is a young nation with an inspiring history, high-rise buildings, diverse culture and unique architecture. Singapore is simply beauty personified with its abundance of lush greenery. Visitors frequently associate Singapore with words like ‘cleanliness’, ‘greenery’ and ‘law-abiding’ and no wonder why! This amazing nation is a treat for travelers and a must-visit destination for any wanderlust. So, get ready to discover the city of Singapore with EdTerra!

The Merlion is an iconic landmark and responsible for earning the original name of Singapore, Singapura or the Lion City. It is the national symbol and a famous mascot of this island-city.

 

 

A melting pot of culture

“The world is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion.” This quote of Thomas Paine astutely describes the culture of Singapore, which is a perfect example of cultural harmony. Unlike its neighboring countries, there is no religious or racial tension. Temples, mosques and churches are often located near each other and all Singaporeans celebrate all festivals in a very traditional manner. Though the locals follow different religions and cultures, the language, food and music bring them together.

Once in Singapore, you cannot afford to miss the beautiful Gardens by the Bay. It is probably one of the most spectacular gardens in the world, facing the enchanting Marina Bay Sands, a place no less than heaven! The 18 Super Trees in the Gardens are a vertical tree-like structure during the day, which gets converted into a splendid view of light and music at night. Go on a trip to the top of one of these iconic super trees and you will be left spellbound by the jaw-dropping beauty of the Gardens.

Apart from the super trees, this enormous botanic garden has two super-cool conservatories: the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest. The latter is a man-made mountain, which is actually a vertical garden with an indoor waterfall flowing from its peak. At an amazing 50 meters high, the world’s tallest indoor waterfall is pretty impressive.

Singapore consists of 63 islands, including mainland Singapore. One of these beautiful islands is Sentosa Island, popularly dubbed as the favourite playground of not just Singapore but all of Asia; it is home to Southeast Asia’s first and only Universal Studios theme park, the world’s largest Marine Life Park, Underwater World and Dolphin Lagoon, a 37 meters tall Merlion, Madame Tussauds Museum of Wax, the Skyline Luge and much more. To enjoy all the attractions of this spectacular man-made island cum resort, plan your trip with EdTerra.

 

 

Singapore is one of safest and cleanest cities in the world. It also has plenty of greenery right in the middle of the city, so it is often referred as a ‘Green City’. You can walk around in different parks and it feels as if you are somewhere else and not in a city famous for its skyscrapers. This has not been done overnight; the city took a decade, getting transformed from a garden in a city to a City Garden.

We have all been to a zoo at some point in our lives, but imagine roaming among a few unfamiliar species that too at night! Sounds scary…but actually it is great fun. The Night Safari in Singapore is the world’s first safari park that is home to many nocturnal animals. From elephants to tigers, there are plenty of different animals you will get to see. From animal shows to dining inside the zoo and much more, this incredible experience at the Night Safari will be one that you won’t forget in a hurry.

 

 

Shop till you drop!

From some of the finest brands to Singapore’s well-known flea markets, Singapore is a shopper’s haven. And if you are looking for a more luxurious experience then you can’t afford to miss shopping at Orchard Road, a 2.2km long belt and Asia’s most famous shopping street where you can let retail therapy take over. Apart from a variety of famous brands, one can explore contemporary specimens of art and some incredibly unique architecture as well.

A visit to Singapore does not begin once you step out of the airport and into the city. In fact, it truly begins the moment you step into Singapore’s world famous Changi Airport. It is a destination in itself. From catching a free movie at the airport’s theatre, to taking a stroll through the Sunflower and Butterfly Garden, from braving the world’s tallest airport slide to enjoying the latest games at the multimedia gaming centre, and not to forget, when your stomach starts to growl, a wide variety of local and international delicacies to choose from.

There is no dearth of entertainment, dining or shopping options. For this and much more, Singapore’s Changi Airport is one such experience that is not to be missed; for this very reason it has been voted as the Best Airport for the past 28 consecutive years by Asian Freight and Supply Chain and the World’s Best Airport by air travelers at the 2017 World Airport Awards for the fifth year in a row.

 

 

It is inspiring to know that despite not having any natural resources of its own, the scientific discoveries of Singapore have done wonders for not only this metropolis state island but it has strengthened the position of Asian markets on a global platform. Singapore has shown remarkable development in all possible spheres of life but when it comes to designing technology for education, this small nation has created the best performing system in the world.

Singapore is home to innumerable attractions, and a visit to this island nation is a must, to understand, firsthand, the progress this nation has made. So let’s explore this ‘Little Red Dot’ or the island of the fastest walkers in the world with EdTerra and rediscover life!
