    Thanks for this great guide! I was in Singapore in 2015 and absolutely loved it. I wish you had already published this when I went there, it would have been so useful!

      Hi there, I wouldn’t know about a permanent resident visa, as this website is only for travel tips. Maybe you will find what you’re looking for here https://www.ica.gov.sg/apply/PR/apply_PR_who

    I actually think a bubble gum ban is a great idea! It always leaves so much litter and it stays around forever.. And I love this city’s diversity – so many cultures living together must make for some incredible food.

      It’s an interesting solution, indeed, Diane. And the city’s diversity is an example we should all learn from.

    I wrote an article about exactly the same topic, as It’s a popular for travelers to have a short layover in SIngapore. I loved that you described the most popular destinations in the city, it’s worth mentioning the city bikes too. Personally, I love that the gum is banned, that should be inspiring for the other cities.

      Thank you, Anita. With Singapore’s airport being one of the most frequented in the world, a long layover in Singapore is indeed is a popular topic among travelers.

    Gardens by the Bay look absolutely incredible! I keep seeing photos from there lately so it must be a popular time to visit Singapore (or maybe just a layover like this). I would love to go to the Ce La Vi bar and be able to see that incredible view in person. It just looks so unreal. I didn’t realize just how much you could see there in only one day, but it’s super great to know as I’ve been contemplating booking a long stop over instead of an actual “trip” per se. Thanks for the tips, although being a responsible gum chewer, I kind of hate the fact that there’s a ban… lol

      Thank you, Amanda. It’s always better to stay longer but keep in mind Singapore is really costly.

    Singapore is definitely on my list of places to see, the city looks amazing by night. It was interesting to read about all the different things to do whilst there and they don’t cost very much, which is a bonus. The gardens are very iconic and would definitely be somewhere I’d like to visit.

    Your post brought back memories from my yearly visits since I was little until I finished college and worked. Little India, Chinatown, Arab Street, Orchard Road, Sentosa Island, hawker street foods, those are places that we stopped every time we went to Singapore for a holiday. There weren’t Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by the Bay up to my last visit. So, I still want to make a stop every time we went to visit my family in Indonesia, but it just never happened until today. I didn’t know they banned gum on 2004. I thought it’s long before that. It used to be the country where we bought Wrigley’s chewing gum before they sale it in Indonesia. I pin this article for my future reference, or actually, to convince my husband to stop there. lol.

      thank you for sharing this lovely perspective of Singapore, I imagine it looked so different from today. I hope you get to visit again and see how many things actually changed throughout the years.

    Singapore was supposed to be a stop on my Bali trip which has been postponed. I worried about the expense so I’m glad to see that you can fit so much into a 24 hour layover. I’ve got plans to eat so much in Little India. And I want to see the Gardens at night. I’ve been in love with the Marina Sands Hotel ever since I saw it on a show, but their rooms are so expensive, especially if you’ll mostly be exploring outside!

    So interesting that they have banned bubble gum! It is such a pain in the butt when it gets thrown onto the street.
    I have GOT to see the Gardens by the Bay, that looks amazing! I didn’t know much about Singapore but you’ve definitely piqued my interest.

    Thanks for sharing wonderful guide on Singapire with all tips. Little India looks colorful and it is good that it is cleaner version of India. I would love to go for glittering Bay Gardens as I love colorful lights.

    I couldn’t agree with you more on this, Singapore is one of the cleanest and well organised cities in the world. Have been to Little India and Chinatown but sadly missed out on Arab street area. Sounds like a delight I must say. Enjoyed reading your post on One of my favourite cities.
