Singapore Island stateThe Island state of SINGAPORE has just held a rare demonstration over plans that will in their view and mine permit more IMMIGRATION. This is a very small island state and apart from the cost does not need this new proposal by their government. Having served there in the emergency and in later years by visits, I find this obvious as do the concerned 4,000 citizens. Lots are blaming immigration for spiraling costs in living and of course values of properties. The island is well known for very strict laws regarding dissent and control over social groups. Lots of info can be read on this LINK
Our western society's outlook on life especially American,British and to some extent Australia could and would not like some of their laws I assure you. However if you just act like a normal tourist you will like it Also it is not a large Island as can be seen on the map below.
Singapore is however a great place to visit with heaps of attractions, it has improved heaps over the years. places like their famous zoo and painted gardens are very impressive.
I should warn you prices are expensive (or were) as is booze, it's only half a degree off the Equator so humid and hot. Whilst there a visit to Malaysia could go on your agenda, prices there are inexpensive. Comments are welcome.
