Singapore is known as the one stop shop for shoppers. But Sandalwood actress Ashvithi Shetty recently checked-in to the luxe land in pursuit of ‘greener’ pastures and discover the clean city’s ‘wild’ side...

Singapore is the cleanest city, no doubt. But, I wanted to digress from the norm and visit farms, reserves, smaller countryside spots and the like. Singapore has islands that house big saltwater crocs — a must-visit! The Night Safari, which is a nocturnal zoo is also another attraction that’s a must visit - because this city isn’t afraid of the dark! And you find too many kids, locals and even tourists active during such explorations. People need to take safaris more in Singapore, than just visit the streets dotted with shops. 

 

As a nature lover, I ensured I didn’t miss the greenery, parks and waterfalls. Singapore has a lot of smaller islands, which are worthy of visiting. A day trip is all you need to discover these small islands, either through bumboats or trails. I was strapped for time, so I couldn’t tick that off my bucket list...

Shopping in Singapore is a different experience all together. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t shop at all. The shopping complexes have accessories at a steal, and the prices are so reasonable that you needn’t haggle much. Singapore is the best place to stock up on your staples, as I realised the stuff is made of good quality too. Different streets are popular for different categories, so you need to do your research than expect to find everything at one spot.

Not sure if there’s a fail-safe travel tip as such, but Singapore is such a well planned city with exquisite sky scrappers and excellent roads and traffic management that it accommodates and calms even the most hassled traveller!
