Fantastic Foto Friday: Singapore – a melting pot of cultures

I call Singapore “Asia for Beginners” because you can find the vast diversity of Asia in the small city state, giving you a chance to see the architecture, religion and culture of different groups all in reach of a simple subway ride. 
The Buddha Tooth Relic Temple in Chinatown is a great example. Once you step inside, you’ll be overwhelmed by the sight of 100s of buddha statues along the wall. It’s an amazing experience and worth a visit on your trip to Singapore.

Fantastic Foto Friday: Singapore Marina Bay Sands Light & Water Show

Singapore continues to improve upon itself. The laser light show at Marina Bay Sands has been one of my favorite evening events to watch and it has now been taken to a much higher level with the revamped light and water fountain show in front of the Marina Bay Sands Mall. You get a fantastic view of the Singapore Skyline by night and the well choreographed show of water fountains, lights and music is very impressive and should be high on your list of things to see in Singapore.
