Why now's a great time for business travellers to visit Singapore
Although some might complain of Singapore's strict laws and government, this has inadvertently had the effect of making Singapore the hands down safest country in Asia to do business. Laws are taken seriously, businesses are protected and expatiates are very well treated here. Exhibition halls like the Suntec Convention Centres and Changi Expo halls are incredibly vast in size. Hotel rooms are very well equipped with function rooms and facilities to make business meetings as conducive as possible. There is no other country in Asia where you can feel completely safe walking anywhere in the middle of the night.
Not that you would want to though as Singapore is blessed with the latest technology and there is just so much to do. Stand on top a ship built on a skyscraper (Marina Bay Sands) with an infinity pool stretching out into the Singapore skyline or just rest in your luxurious suite complete with the latest audio sound systems. Business travellers will never run out of sources of entertainment.
Speaking of which, the Singapore government has placed much emphasis on developing Singapore as a tourist destination. They started hosting the Formula One races and the stop is now recognised by experts as one of the top race circuits on the world tour. During the event barriers are put up around the city and it is transformed into a beautiful racetrack. Other new attractions include Universal studios and the sprawling "Gardens by the Bay" - a recreational area right in the middle of the city that spans an area of roughly 125 soccer fields and exhibits vegetation from all around the world.
Lastly, the first settlers of Singapore were from neighbouring countries all around Asia. Over a period of 200 years, this mixture of culture led to an amalgamation of the best Asian food. The combination of that with the western world resulted in an extremely delectable local cuisine with wide variety that would appeal to everyone. Famous dishes like "Chilli Crab", "Roti Prata" and "Nasi Lemak" are some essential dishes you have to try. It is for this reason Singapore is often described as a food paradise.
To summarise, Singapore offers business travellers a very attractive and well facilitated environment to do business. Coupled with that, it is a city built as a tourist destination to accommodate the millions of visitors each year. The vast culture, attractions and food will ensure your business trip in Singapore will never have a dull moment.
