Singapore has changed and transformed dramatically in the last 10 years. The financial sector really took off and is catching up with Hong Kong and there's no slowing down. I used to visit Singapore 6-7 years back and there was not much to see nor do apart from shop and one attraction which was the Singaporean Lion statue. Friends who live there would complain endlessly that there's nothing going on and nicknamed it Singabore.

I went back to Singapore twice in 2012, and some parts were unrecognisable. The area that used to be bare land is now filled with high rises and odd-shaped buildings mostly belonging to investment banks, a couple of new hotels, restaurants, bars, clubs, shopping mall, casino, botanical garden and museum. The list is endless. Universal Studio also just opened its doors in 2011 and not to forget the F1 week. The futuristic tiny country now has a lot to offer and if the last time you went to Singapore and found that you ticked off the to see list after 5 mins of landing, then I would suggest you to go back again.
