I traveled alone in Singapore and confirmed that in fact I did not feel anything insecure while I was there. Skyscrapers to lose sight of, shopping centers around every corner, a well developed transport network, a fantastic botanical garden … and this just in the center of the city. A visit to the surroundings can take you into the middle of tropical forests inhabited by monkeys, giant lizards and exotic birds.
