Even if you are not that interested in touring or travelling, Singapore could still have you enticed for all good reasons.

The unique attributes of a place are not always around those virtual aspects that have been brought to reality and Singapore has managed this marvel without losing out on development.

This amazing trip.com promo code page from collect-offers will help you if you wish to visit Singapore but held yourself because of the budget constraints.

Rooftop Infinity Pool

The Marina Bay Sands which is one of the plushest Hotels of Singapore offers this unique experience that you couldn’t have even wondered in your wildest dream. Infinity Pool is on another level of creativity which could have needed a place like Singapore to turn into reality. This pool is the highest man-made swimming pool on the planet. How cool is that to see the entire city from a rooftop swimming pool? Just incredible…

The Maze-Like Apartments

1000When you think of high multi-storey residential apartments, you could never have thought about an infrastructure such as ‘The Interlace’ even out of the vaguest imaginations of an architect. Singapore is a place that never shies away from experimenting and result is this beautifully designed building. This building has an illusionistic design that appears as if it is a maze of big blocks organized in a peculiar pattern. But there is more to these 24 storey apartments than just the design. The overall infrastructure has been very safely created and is amongst one of the safest buildings in the world. So you can say that it is not just an ordinary experiment, is it?

The Hawker Centres

But when it comes to eating, the place has numerous hawking centres which are basically a very intuitive version of restaurants. These hawker centres serve a full meal in less than 10 Singapore Dollars. The Hawker centres are a much bigger version of the modern food courts that are general. The place is not just offering a common meal but instead provides a dozen options to choose from depending on your taste.

An Open Design Zoo

The zoo of Singapore has a very open ‘captivity’ which allows the animals and birds in the zoo to feel freer than usually caged animals of the zoo. The open design of zoo requires a larger area and therefore the zoo is spread in a vast area. That means one has to cover more distance to see the animals and birds but again there are transportation facilities available in form of trams, boats and horse rides to cover those distances.

The Sustainable Greenery

The city is ranked amongst the top of all other major cities of the world when it comes to the ratio of greenery to the land mass of the city. Singapore has been developed on an eco-friendly and sustainable model and yet shown a higher growth than most of the developed countries of the world. There are various other countries who are now following this highly successful model of development that cares to keep nature as it is ought to be.

Haw Par Villa

Haw-Par-Villa-Theme-Park-SingaporeThis place was an amusement park in the past that has now been developed into a really unique and intelligible theme park. This park is full of life-size sculptural figures presented in certain settings taking references from the Chinese mythology. The idea of the creators was to teach moral lessons to the children with the help of mythological stories in such a lively manner so that they could enjoy while learning about the ethical values of human beings simultaneously. This park is one of its kind and needs to be followed in other places of the world.
