A futuristic country where East and West beautifully synchronize on the same garden state.

As you’ll see in this Singapore Lookbook, here is a futuristic country where East and West beautifully synchronize on the same garden state.

Known as Garden City, Singapore is an impressive island state bridging diverse Southeast Asia and powerful northern nations including: China, Taiwan, Japan, North and South Korea. Singapore merely began its self-governing state in 1959, and quickly upturned its young independence into an influential global commerce. With low corporate and personal taxes, this Asian financial center now famously welcomes citizenship of the rich and powerful, such as: Jackie Chan and Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin.

From a Botanical Garden comparable to Manhattan’s Central Park, to Marina Bay Sands deemed as an elegant spin to Las Vegas; Singapore makes the perfect 5-day getaway. Just enough to devour local cuisine highlighted by crabs stir fried in white pepper sauce and juicy Hainan chicken in a bustling food court. Locals think of their own land as borderline boring, but travelers gaze at its majestic skyline as limitless potential. One can see the future in Singapore, bursting though within its disciplined and pristine frame.
