As I live near Singapore and always been there.. I can confirm that it is a dream country but the living cost are quite high. Some of things in this posts are not new though.
But I guess the salaries are also high there, that's why the living costs are expensive :)
I would like to visit this country, seems to be really cool :)
I have to admit that the city is beautiful, modern, very clean, and everything looks neat and tidy. But what I think they lack most is sincerity. When I was in the subways, all I see is everyone who looks tired, indifferent, and a bit sad. In the first day, I thought they're tired since it's was dawn. But in the following morning, and in the lunchtime after it, and in the dawn after it, I saw the same pattern: the locals who look like they are in constant burden despite of their trendy outfits, expensive gadgets in their hands and branded bags. Of all the people in the subways, those who laugh or smile broadly are mostly tourist.
When I was in the mall, the salesgirls serve with no enthusiasm. Plain robotic, yet obviously they pretend to be nice and caring. But I have been living long enough to detect insincerity in them. You can feel when people treat you without sincerity, the body language never lies.
At the end of a week-long stay in Singapore, I couldn't wait to go home, back to my country where finding people who smile and look happy is not very difficult.
So yeah, I'm not very impressed with the city. It's overrated.
It's very different from my experience in Japan, whose people are very nice and more sincere.
I don't think I would visit the city without human again. I think it's better to spend my holidays in England, Thailand (the people are very nice), Turkey, Japan or USA, or Bali. In my opinion, all beautiful buildings and landmarks can't beat simple warm and sincere smile from human. Bali doesn't have buildings that as spectacular as Singapore's, but the people are really nice, warm and I don't mind if I have to spend the rest of my live there.
the Netherlands also have such "charging bicycles" on the airports :)
