A few days in Singapore

Some call it "Singapore Inc.", but I think it has a lot more soul that its nickname leads to believe. We spent five nights there and had plenty to do. The city-state has a fascinating cultural history, from the indigenous Peranakan culture, to colonialism, to the Singaporean Chinese, to the thriving and youthful economic culture today. We found it steeped in tradition yet excitingly urban. Some of our favorite experiences...

Eating at the Hawker Markets...


Walking tours by Singapore Walks (we did three of them!)...

Herbal medicine shop in Chinatown

Buddhist temple in Chinatown






Quietly observing life at the Hindu temples...








































And appreciating modern marvels...

The Singapore Flyer
