7 Reasons to Visit Singapore

One town that deserves to be visited over and over again is definitely Singapore. The city is changing so fast that it looks totally like a different place every four years. In other words, even if you visited  Singapore four or five years ago, there is a good reason for you to come back, and experience it all over again.

Singapore is an amazing city, it has a great location, it has a lot to offer, and to top it all, it is one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Even flying there is a unique experience since Singapore Changi Airport has been recognized as the best one in the world. Truth be told, there are so many reasons to visit this town, but for me, these are the top 7 reasons why you should travel there.

1. Great nightlife

    Much like in all other major cities, nightlife in Singapore is situated in the city center. If you are interested in having a good time, then Lion City has a lot to offer. For those who love to dance all night long, there is a club called Zouk, and if you are lucky, you’ll be able to witness the performance of some of the best DJs, like David Guetta or the Chemical Brothers.

    In case you are interested in a place with a good view, then you’ll be happy to know that there are a lot of rooftop bars in Singapore, so make sure you visit them. Also, if you enjoy being close to the sea, Marina Bay Sands and Clarke Quay are locations you definitely must visit.

    2. Amazing places to eat

    For those who love to have special meals, and who love to try as many different cuisines as possible, Singapore will fulfill your wishes. Inside Lion City, a true gastronomic adventure awaits. For a copious Italian food buffet, you should visit Basilico. For those who prefer Asian food, Lime is the restaurant you want to visit, and in the event you want Japanese cuisine, pay a visit to a restaurant called Ikoi. Of course, if you are not sure what you want exactly, Carousel is the place for you. It has French, Japanese, Asian and all other kinds of meals, so just pick the one you find the most alluring.

      Singapore is a cultural melting pot; therefore, you’ll fit in perfectly regardless of your cultural background. Everyone is welcome and the economy of Singapore gives you fertile grounds to start your own line of work. So, if want to move out and start a new life, this is probably the best city for you. It is constantly changing its appearance, so the scenery will never get dull. Once you move here, you will never have a desire to leave. It is a place that has one of the freest economies in the world, so your success story is just waiting to happen.

      4. A lot of different sports

      If you are an athletic person and if you love to train, then Singapore will be a dream come true. Anything you want to take up can be found; there’s football, basketball, rugby, swimming, cricket, badminton and cycling. You can also participate in various popular water sports like sailing, scuba diving, waterskiing, or kayaking. You can also try something new and trending like stand-up paddle boarding; another activity that is really good for your health. Since it is such a big and rich city, a lot of major events take place there; Formula 1 for example. Therefore, if you love watching races, this will be real heaven on earth for you.

      5. Inspiring green space

      This town is an absolute paragon when it comes to eco-attractions. There are Botanic Gardens, Gardens by the bay, jungles of Pulau Ubin and of course Singapore’s Zoo. Anyone who is a flora and fauna enthusiast will be pretty hyped to visit all of these amazing places. In other words, if you truly want to go green, go to Singapore.

      6. Galleries

      To get your creative juices flowing and to find new inspiration for your art, make sure to visit the ArtScience Museum and Gillman Barracks. The ArtScience museum is a lotus shaped building with a vast art collection and Gillman Barracks used to be a colonial army base that was transformed into a sanctuary for artistic work. Another important location is National Gallery Singapore, since it features the largest art collection of Southeast Asian artists. It was a big event last year, during the mid-2015 opening, and there was even a festival that lasted for 10 days.

      7. Epic Hotels

        Lastly, in the event that you want to have a luxurious stay in hotels with cutting edge interior design, Singapore will live up to your expectations. You can stay at Sofitel So Singapore, or at a hotel called Wangz. Both of these have received very positive customer feedback, and they both have an incredible service. Another good place is Hotel Jen Orchardgateway; it’s right next to the metro station and only 4km away from the Botanic Gardens and Marina Bay.
        I hope you will go and visit this epic city, fly their amazing airlines and have a great stay in their hotels. Make sure you experience the nightlife of Lion City and try all the delicious food in their restaurants. Visit the monuments and galleries and try out different sports; it is truly an uplifting place, so don’t miss out.

        How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

        How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

        As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

        “Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

        When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

        Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

        We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

        But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

        So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

        It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

        1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

        Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

        2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

        This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

        You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

        3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

        This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

        4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

        How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

        So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

        If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

        And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
