Prepare yourself to eat, eat, eat!
One of the reasons that world traveler, celebrity chef, and TV show host Anthony Bourdain loves spending as much time in Singapore as humanly possible is because it offers some of the best food and one of the most unique atmospheres on the planet – a perfect combination that will have you dining out at every and any opportunity.
As Anthony is known to say, “New York might be the city that never sleeps, but Singapore is the city that always eats”!
Singapore boasts one of the most perfectly designed airports on the planet
Most people absolutely dread and despise having to spend any amount of time whatsoever in and airport, and do everything in their power to avoid this headache and hassle and to limit their time in an airport as much as possible.
That’s not going to be the case when you fly into the Changi Airport.
Amazing food, fantastic shopping, day rooms that allow you to relax, a free movie theater, smoking lounges, indoor gardens, and a super slide for children and adults are all going to be found in this international airport.
You may want to prepare yourself for the possibility of having to be dragged out of the airport by your traveling companions, something that isn’t going to be said about most other airports around the world!
Make sure that you are braced for the heat
Most people are going to tell you that Singapore is pretty hot all year round – do not expect them to be exaggerating.
Sure, it isn’t quite as oppressive heat wise as say Death Valley or the Sahara desert is, but it isn’t going to be “cool” by any stretch of the imagination.
Take frequent dips in the many pools located around Singapore or splash out into the ocean to cool yourself down whenever you’re feeling a little bit overwhelmed. And no matter what else you do, make sure that you get accommodations with advanced and fully operational air conditioning!
Don’t even think about drugs in Singapore
Though you probably won’t ever even stumble across a handful of Singapore police officers you don’t even want to consider breaking the law, bending the rules, or having ANYTHING whatsoever to do with the drug culture.
This country takes drugs very, very seriously and the penalties here are significant. You’d literally have to the at least a little bit crazy to even think about touching drugs in this country.
At best you’ll end up in prison for quite a while, and at worse you’ll have to deal with caning, public demonstrations of corporal punishment, or even worse!
Just don’t do it.
