Singapore has been on my must-visit list for a long time. We’ve all seen the photos of the famous Gardens by the Bay and the Marina Bay Sands infinity pool, and booking a short visit was an easy decision. The Supertree Grove was an absolute masterpiece. The Marina Bay Sands, though bougie and swarming with irritating nouveaux-riche, is by far the coolest hotel I’ve ever stayed at.
But Singapore as a whole confused the hell out of me. It somehow managed to simultaneously fascinate and bore me; I thought it was visually stunning, but otherwise pretty bland. I expected a place with so much creativity and innovation to have an equally cool vibe, and instead the city felt kind of sterile and artificial.
I did enjoy my time there. I loved exploring Singapore and ticking off my bucket list items, I loved everything I saw, but I was also ready to leave and never return lol. In summary: worth a visit, but maybe just one visit. Maybe I’ll return one day to give it another chance.
