“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.”
– Henry David Thoreau
Singapore is located on the tip of the Malay Peninsula in Southeast Asia. It’s one of our favorite Asian travel destinations. And it’s a great place for foodies, blending Malay, Chinese, Indonesian, Indian and western cuisine. Singapore’s magnificent skyline features the opulent Marina Bay Sands resort (pictured above and below). It’s especially impressive at night when everything is illuminated. Marina Bay Sands was featured in the 2018 hit Hollywood movie, “Crazy Rich Asians” – a wonderful romantic comedy. Take a “Private Crazy Rich Asians Singapore Tour” and see all the glamorous locations from the film.
