This is Selina~ it's been about 4 months since I arrived in Seoul, and I finally took my first of hopefully many trips exploring Seoul. One of the many things you'll here while your studying abroad is to travel outside of your study abroad! For this blog post I'm going to highlight my trip to Singapore. I was there for about 5 days including travel and stayed with a relative. It was such an exciting trip, and Singapore is very clean, beautiful, and expensive! Visiting Singapore left me with deep impressions especially how highly urbanized it is and the nature of its economy. I'll get to more of my impressions in my next post!
Much of downtown Singapore is luxury brands galore. I admit that when I left Singapore I suddenly became a bit excessive with my spending... On the first day we went to the main tourist attractions of Singapore. The first stop was Marina Bay where much of Singapore's architectural fame is. Below is the Merlion, a half mermaid half lion creature which is Singapore's mascot.
