Wanderlust Wednesday: Singapore

I have always longed to wake up one morning and hop on a jet bound for Singapore. Why? Well, why not?

On August 9, 2015, Singapore celebrated it’s 50th Independence Day. Once a long time British Colony, Singapore became part of Malaysia in 1963 and declared its independence in 1965.

Perhaps it is my love for reading that has made me antsy to visit Singapore. I have read countless books that take place in Singapore, the most recent one being “Crazy Rich Asians” by Kevin Kwan. All of which talk about the country’s culture, wealth, and over the top list of things to do.

Count me in!

I cannot go a week without reading about or seeing pictures of the Marina Bay Sands resort. I always catch myself dreaming of the day I will get to stay there as a hotel guest and swim in their rooftop infinity pool while drinking a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.

A girl can most certainly dream.

Among the top attractions to take in in Singapore are the National Orchid Garden, Gardens by the Bay, Singapore Botanic Gardens, Singapore Zoo, Cloud Forest, and Waterfront Promenade.

As it stands, Singapore is the third richest country in the world. One study by Citibank predicts that by 2050, Singapore will be the richest country in the world. With that said, it is not a place to visit if you are in to budget travel, although I think most could make an exception after reading up on the country.

If you could wake up tomorrow and go anywhere in the world, where would you choose? Afterall, it is Wanderlust Wednesday and no place is off limits.

  1. Being a Singaporean, I am happy and glad that Singapore is a wander-bound location for yourself, and for others who have visited and found it to be a nice place 🙂
