The amazing Singapore

Recently I've had the chance to take a course in the wonderful city of Singapore.
My pictures will speak by themselves therefore, in this virtual journey through Singapore, my comments will be short.
The people living there are extremely polite, helpful and always seeming to be cheerful. Their immense variety of food would satisfy anyone from no matter what country.
The business center contains of skyscrapers, vast shopping malls and widespread network of trains. Therefore you wouldn't believe that 40 years ago in the same place there was only the ocean. With the land acquired from another country, in 40 years, they have managed to build a modern downtown with hight tech means of transportation.
In Bucharest, Romanian's capital, we have "managed" to build 3 subway stations as extensions of the old network in guess how many years: 20 years Ta-ta-ta!! Great "efficiency"!
I respect a great deal the people of Singapore and if I will get the chance to visit them again, I will definitely return with a large smile on my face, as I know they will welcome me with the same attitude.

Here are a few samples of Singapore sights:
