A common misconception of Singapore is that the city-state is dull, without much to offer except for a stopover to other places. Change your plans, stay a few days, and enjoy all that has to offer: you will be gratefully surprised. Singapore is a melting pot of cultures with fantastic architecture. There, the old and the new coexist with natural and technological elements, making us think twice about the integration of nature and built human landscapes.
Although it is always a good time to visit Singapore, this year is a special one. Singapore is celebrating its 50th anniversary of independence from Malaysia (obtained in 1965). There are events all year round, the central one being the parade and fireworks on August 9.
