We lived in Singapore, and when we had US visitors they always wanted to go to Raffles Hotel. Most of our visitors did not know Singapore history, but they all wanted to go to the Long Bar for a Singapore Sling. After drinking one with my mother, I still wonder why! The hotel and the bar are beautiful, and they evoke another time, but that drink tastes like the deodorizer in a gas station bathroom! Beyond cloyingly sweet and thick, it's just yucky. I have not had the pleasure of drinking one anywhere else and never will. Put that aside and go to Singapore and experience the different cultures. Singapore is such a fascinating place. Safe and clean are not the half of it, the country is flat out beautiful and the people are so friendly. Changi airport is the most beautiful in the world. Go.
