After so many days surrounded by extreme nature environment in Thailand, the arrival is Singapore (MAP) reveals a complete new world.
Singapore city seems like a little world inside a little world. Even though the majority of people are still south East Asians, here you will find a complex mixture of any kind of culture and roots. Here's little India, where it is really possible to travel in space and being surrounded only by little people and little restaurant from India, the real one.
There is a little Islamic community and of course you can find little Chinese guys going around in Chinatown. There are thousands of Italian restaurants, there are people studying and travelling from all over the world.
Yet the most impressive part of the city is its incredible architecture. There are hundreds of building of any kind and colour. The center is filled with skyscrapers with unusual geometry. They are all shopping malls, hotels or business centers.
Marina Bay is the exception in the exception. The highest top quality and eccentric building of the city stands isolated from the rest of the skyscrapers. The shapes resembles a (huge) boat. On top of three towers.
The main entrance is welcome with an impressive geometry effect. There is also a string quartet performing live music, artists, shopping mall. Going further you can find theaters, casino and there's even an internal river which can be sailed by little boat.
The roof top hosts the highest swimming pool in the world. Not accessible to visitors, one can only imagine the sensation of having a swim 57th floors from the above...
The view from the above is impressive. The whole city can be observed with a different angle. What had appeared as huge buildings now are tiny blocks in the overall picture.
The city is continously evolving. New districts are about to be built, lots of skyscrapers are still to be finished. It seems a neverending work in progress place.
Singapore probably offers its best view during the night, when life becomes crazy with neverending parties, pubs, fancy places and incredible lights.mari
