Visions of Stunning Singapore

How time flies. It’s been 9 years since I visited Singapore during my backpacking tour of Asia. I have fond memories of Singapore, I remember it as the first place I saw of developed Asia. It truly impressed me and has lit up my interest in seeing more of Chinese cultures. This month, I was very fortunate to be invited to give two talks at Singapore and the city – once again – has left a very strong impression on me. Some think Singapore to be just another version of Hong Kong, where I’ve lived for the past few years, but because I know Hong Kong I can appreciate many of the differences that make Singapore what it is – cultural diversity, native language English proficiency, balance of public and private space, mastermind urban planning, street food to die for in abundance, and much more.

 

Before I go into the various places I’ve visited and things I’ve seen, I thought I’d open up with my summary of stunning Singapore – visions of a truly global modern city.
