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.

        The Best Way to Create a Vision for the Life You Want

        The Best Way to Create a Vision for the Life You Want

        Creating a vision for your life might seem like a frivolous, fantastical waste of time, but it’s not: creating a compelling vision of the life you want is actually one of the most effective strategies for achieving the life of your dreams. Perhaps the best way to look at the concept of a life vision is as a compass to help guide you to take the best actions and make the right choices that help propel you toward your best life.

        your vision of where or who you want to be is the greatest asset you have

          Why You Need a Vision

          Experts and life success stories support the idea that with a vision in mind, you are more likely to succeed far beyond what you could otherwise achieve without a clear vision. Think of crafting your life vision as mapping a path to your personal and professional dreams. Life satisfaction and personal happiness are within reach. The harsh reality is that if you don’t develop your own vision, you’ll allow other people and circumstances to direct the course of your life.

          How to Create Your Life Vision

          Don’t expect a clear and well-defined vision overnight—envisioning your life and determining the course you will follow requires time, and reflection. You need to cultivate vision and perspective, and you also need to apply logic and planning for the practical application of your vision. Your best vision blossoms from your dreams, hopes, and aspirations. It will resonate with your values and ideals, and will generate energy and enthusiasm to help strengthen your commitment to explore the possibilities of your life.

          What Do You Want?

          The question sounds deceptively simple, but it’s often the most difficult to answer. Allowing yourself to explore your deepest desires can be very frightening. You may also not think you have the time to consider something as fanciful as what you want out of life, but it’s important to remind yourself that a life of fulfillment does not usually happen by chance, but by design.

          It’s helpful to ask some thought-provoking questions to help you discover the possibilities of what you want out of life. Consider every aspect of your life, personal and professional, tangible and intangible. Contemplate all the important areas, family and friends, career and success, health and quality of life, spiritual connection and personal growth, and don’t forget about fun and enjoyment.

          Some tips to guide you:

          • Remember to ask why you want certain things
          • Think about what you want, not on what you don’t want.
          • Give yourself permission to dream.
          • Be creative. Consider ideas that you never thought possible.
          • Focus on your wishes, not what others expect of you.

          Some questions to start your exploration:

          • What really matters to you in life? Not what should matter, what does matter.
          • What would you like to have more of in your life?
          • Set aside money for a moment; what do you want in your career?
          • What are your secret passions and dreams?
          • What would bring more joy and happiness into your life?
          • What do you want your relationships to be like?
          • What qualities would you like to develop?
          • What are your values? What issues do you care about?
          • What are your talents? What’s special about you?
          • What would you most like to accomplish?
          • What would legacy would you like to leave behind?

          It may be helpful to write your thoughts down in a journal or creative vision board if you’re the creative type. Add your own questions, and ask others what they want out of life. Relax and make this exercise fun. You may want to set your answers aside for a while and come back to them later to see if any have changed or if you have anything to add.

          What Would Your Best Life Look Like?

          Describe your ideal life in detail. Allow yourself to dream and imagine, and create a vivid picture. If you can’t visualize a picture, focus on how your best life would feel. If you find it difficult to envision your life 20 or 30 years from now, start with five years—even a few years into the future will give you a place to start. What you see may surprise you. Set aside preconceived notions. This is your chance to dream and fantasize.

          A few prompts to get you started:

          • What will you have accomplished already?
          • How will you feel about yourself?
          • What kind of people are in your life? How do you feel about them?
          • What does your ideal day look like?
          • Where are you? Where do you live? Think specifics, what city, state, or country, type of community, house or an apartment, style and atmosphere.
          • What would you be doing?
          • Are you with another person, a group of people, or are you by yourself?
          • How are you dressed?
          • What’s your state of mind? Happy or sad? Contented or frustrated?
          • What does your physical body look like? How do you feel about that?
          • Does your best life make you smile and make your heart sing? If it doesn’t, dig deeper, dream bigger.

          It’s important to focus on the result, or at least a way-point in your life. Don’t think about the process for getting there yet—that’s the next stepGive yourself permission to revisit this vision every day, even if only for a few minutes. Keep your vision alive and in the front of your mind.

          Plan Backwards

          It may sound counter-intuitive to plan backwards rather than forwards, but when you’re planning your life from the end result, it’s often more useful to consider the last step and work your way back to the first. This is actually a valuable and practical strategy for making your vision a reality.

          • What’s the last thing that would’ve had to happen to achieve your best life?
          • What’s the most important choice you would’ve had to make?
          • What would you have needed to learn along the way?
          • What important actions would you have had to take?
          • What beliefs would you have needed to change?
          • What habits or behaviors would you have had to cultivate?
          • What type of support would you have had to enlist?
          • How long will it have taken you to realize your best life?
          • What steps or milestones would you have needed to reach along the way?

          Now it’s time to think about your first step, and the next step after that. Ponder the gap between where you are now and where you want to be in the future. It may seem impossible, but it’s quite achievable if you take it step-by-step.

          It’s important to revisit this vision from time to time. Don’t be surprised if your answers to the questions, your technicolor vision, and the resulting plans change. That can actually be a very good thing; as you change in unforeseeable ways, the best life you envision will change as well. For now, it’s important to use the process, create your vision, and take the first step towards making that vision a reality.
