Walking through Singapore in March 2022

On the way back from Sydney to Germany I had a stay of 9 hours in Singapore. I decided logically to visit the city. Several days before I had to fight with a variety of forms and regulations, because they kept changing due to the crisis and everything was not so clear.

Finally, when entering the country, no one asked for anything other than the passport and I was in the country within 30 min after landing. There I took the train east and then walked through the city through some tropical parks to the beach and back.

Singapore is a small island city-state located in Southeast Asia. It is known for its diverse culture, modern architecture, and lush green spaces. With a population of over 5.7 million people, Singapore is one of the most densely populated countries in the world.

One of the main attractions in Singapore is its bustling central business district, which is home to many of the country’s major financial institutions and multinational corporations. Visitors can explore the iconic landmarks such as the Merlion statue, the Marina Bay Sands resort, and the Gardens by the Bay.

In addition to its modern architecture, Singapore is also known for its diverse culture and rich history. Visitors can explore the ethnic neighborhoods of Chinatown, Little India, and Kampong Glam, which offer a glimpse into the country’s diverse past. Singapore also has several museums and cultural institutions, such as the National Museum of Singapore and the Asian Civilisations Museum.

Singapore is also famous for its green spaces, including Gardens by the Bay, a 101-hectare garden located in the heart of the city, and the Singapore Botanic Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. These gardens offer visitors the chance to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy the beauty of nature.

Singapore’s food culture is an important part of the country’s culture and heritage. The country is known for its hawker centers, where visitors can sample a wide variety of local dishes at affordable prices. Some of the most famous hawker centers include Lau Pa Sat and Maxwell Food Centre.
