20 Reasons Why Travelling to Singapore is a Total Waste of Time

Travelling to Singapore? Meh, just give it a miss.

I’ve heard it many times. Travellers on their first journey to Asia, excited about exploring Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Malaysia. It seems like they are covering every country in Southeast Asia but… where is Singapore on this list?

“Oh, yeah, we’ll have a layover in Singapore. Heard that the airport is great!”

Oh, there it is! They will have a taste of Singapore after all. I mean, that’s the best thing you can experience in Singapore, isn’t it? Changi Airport, the world’s best airport.

What else is there in Singapore anyway, and what is awesome about Singapore anyway?
