Singapore is an interesting place especially when you compare it to the rest of southeast Asia. Being a small country formerly part of Malaysia, Singapore is like a tiny pocket of super-capitalism – the business capital of southeast Asia. The county lacks natural beauty but has some impressive man-made structures such as the Gardens by the Bay. I did visit Universal Studios in Singapore (by accident as we were just trying to find a beach) and the entire place had an unnatural theme park vibe. The city itself interesting because it feels like it was once a 3rd world country that became a 1st world country in a very short span of time.
