We have heard people describe Singapore as too clinical, too safe, too efficient, too exact, too.... blah blah blah! As boring as it may sound, it looks like a perfect place to begin a budget trip. Start safe. Dip your toes in the water. Poke it with a stick and see what happens etc, etc. So we're looking forward to our first stop being in a 'clinical' city. Clinical = clean. Clean = happy Steph. Other than that, Singapore is an unknown entity to us both. Skyscrapers, big business and chewing gum-free pavements.
Well first impressions in this case were similar to what we expected. We have only been here for around 3 hours, but from what we've seen the whole place looks like a massive extension of the airport (which was colossal). You could eat a Flanby from the floor of the metro (although you would be arrested because it is illegal to eat at all when travelling on it)
We took a late night walk down to Clarke Quay which reminded us both of the theme parks in Florida - except the theme in this case is booze and 80's pop songs.
There was a bar named 'Clinic', which allowed it's punters to sit in a wheelchair and get drip fed cocktails by waiters in surgical attire. Inevitably that went straight on to our to-do list!
Not sure if this place is genius or insane yet. We shall find out in the burning light of day!
