  • Introduction

Singapore is jungle, orchids and steamy hot weather.

It is a modern vibrant city and buzzing international hub in the tropics of Southeast Asia.

A no stress stopover destination, Singapore is an easy and fun place to hang out for a few days and get a taste of Asia. If you still think it’s sterile, it’s time you give it another look.

    Geylang - Singapore’s Red Light District

    What I like most about Geylang is that it’s the opposite of the glossy-magazine version of Singapore that you see most places. It looks, feels and smells like Asia.

    The smell I’m referring to is durian, a tropical fruit that…


    Absolute Sanctuary

    My body was crying for mercy. Too much airplane food, too many late nights, too much stress, too much alcohol. My work hard, play hard lifestyle had caught up with me.

Travel Tips

  • You are going to sweat. Don’t worry you won’t be the only one.
  • You are also going to freeze, as aircon is always set to meat locker temperatures. Bring a cardigan or pashmina to take the edge off the cold indoors.
  • Drink lots of water to stay hydrated.
  • Don’t be put off visiting SE Asia during monsoon seasons. Singapore has fantastic thunderstorms. Heavy downpours are frequent but they usually don’t last long and they cool things down a bit.
