Hi Bushra, many times, we asked ourselves, should I visit a certain place. There are 2 ways of approaching this;
(1) Ask yourself what you expect from a trip? Do you want to see an ultra modern city? Do you want to visit a place for shopping? Or are you looking for a good nature walk?
(2) Set no expectation. Visit a destination with an opened mind.
Singapore used to be a sea town along the sea trade route. She consists of 4 major ethinic groups, Chinese, Malays, Indians and Eurasions, in descending order of population size. English is widely spoken, though the influx of PRC Chinese workforce may see Mandarin be used widely as well.
You can plan a trip to Singapore with some activities targeted as 'learning destination' with trips to the National Museum, Asian Civilisations Museum, Reflections at Bukit Chandu, Marina Barrage, etc.
Singapore is a good place for eats. In fact, Singapore Chinese often greet each other with "Have you eaten?", rather than "How are you?" The Chinese 'territory' is at Chinatown or Eu Tong Sen Street area, Indians at 'Little India' or Serangoon Road area, Malays at Geylang Serai, Eurasians at Katong. These areas and many others are home to authentic food from the respective groups.
The city state is also a good place for shopping of electronics. The latest phones models, HD TVs, multimedia players, etc. Good places to check out these stuff are Funan IT Mall, Sim Lim Square (though be cautious at this particular location), Mustafa Centre, Far East Plaza (For phones). For outlet store shoppings, visit IMM mall where there are over 50 outlet shops with brands like Sacoor Brothers, Agnes B., Coach, Puma, Adidas, Ecco, Geox, Esprit, Denizen, etc.
Well, there are many other things to do. You are welcomed to post any queries you might have and I will be happy to help you find out.
