Travel is easy and efficient
Singapore has one of the busiest airports in Asia and everything about it great and reliable. Very often we associate busy airports with too many people, delays and problems. For instance, London’s Heathrow is one of the busiest airports in Europe and it’s also one of the messiest especially when it comes to luggage. Its reputation in that department is deservedly abysmal which might lead many to believe that busy airports are difficult to manage well.
Singapore’s Changi international airport disproves this stereotype and demonstrates that attention to detail, good infrastructure and smart technology can solve all kinds of challenges. The airport is extremely efficient and the city infrastructure makes it easy for passengers to get to and from the airport. Boarding and arriving is also very quick and efficient and the airport is considered by many to be a marvel of modern engineering. This has made Singapore a travel hub and if you are living there, it would be very easy to visit the countries that are nearby due to the great infrastructure and regular flights at affordable prices and traveling through Changi will always be a pleasure.
Places to visit
As Singapore is located in the center of South East Asia, its location makes a lot of interesting destinations easy to travel to. There is a list of great destinations to visit while living in Singapore:

Things to do while in Singapore
The whole region might be full of culture and interesting places to visit, but so is the city nation of Singapore itself. It might be small, but it has a lot to offer. First of all, Singapore is extremely welcoming and multicultural which makes living there great.
