A Holiday Trip to Remember

I have heard much about the beauty of Singapore, one of four remaining true city-states in the world and one of the most famous cities in Asia. It is the smallest nation in Southeast Asia that is made by many wonderful islands. At the year-end of school holidays 2012, I was my wife and son decided to visit Singapore, the Lion Island. Singapore, a small island, lies at the southern and of west end of Malaysia. A long and narrow piece of land joins Singapore with Johor Bahru, the southern-most town of West Malaysia. Singapore is now an independent state. The city of Singapore is extremely beautiful. It is well known for its centers of business and other activities. There are many places of interest, such as the Tiger Balm Garden, the Botanical Gardens and Raffles Museum. There are also many important centers of learning such as the University of Singapore, Science Centre, the Nanyang University and the Polytechnic. Being a famous city, hundreds of people come every day from various parts of the world to do business or to enjoy the sights of the city. Singapore therefore has large and beautiful airports and its harbors are full of ships. Another day we visited the museum where I saw hundreds of curious things preserved for scholars and others. It was indeed an education to see all those things. There is so much to learn here that every visit by any person is sure to add to his knowledge. We also visited some of the harbors and saw the large ships anchored there. The sight of the ships aroused a desire in me to cross the oceans and go round the world. We was indeed deeply impressed by activities at the harbor. Then every night, We went round the town and visited some of the parks and other places of interest. The numerous lights and the constant stream of traffic kept the city alive. We visited a few of the cinemas as well. This trip gave us some experiences about Singapore, a neighbor of my country. We took many pictures everywhere I went. It is helpful for who want to travel around the world to study more about the cultures of different countries.

On the way, we can see the beautiful Singapore parliament building with a green dome at its center. Then we get to the hall of the war that highlights the history of the Second World War during the Japanese occupation and scenery pictures showing the state of war and the lives of the people of Singapore. We had the opportunity to see the buildings of the mosque. Here are some of the mosques built by the Muslims themselves. They range from the Indian Muslim and Malay. Among the mosques, the Sultan Mosque is the largest mosque in Singapore. Sultan Mosque building was completed in 1928. We visited the National Zoo in which there are animals around the world. Then we went to the Jurong Bird Park. The garden has a wide variety of birds and other well preserved. We continue the tour to Haw Par Villa. This place is amazing. There are hundreds of statues and sculptures that reveal the past condition of the country to China and Singapore. Then we went to the Science Centre which showcases a variety of items related to science fiction and technology. I admire most the rest of us were in Singapore this is the attitude of Singaporeans who disciplined the attitude that they are not damaging government property and public places. It would be fortunate if the people of Malaysia have a disciplined attitude as Singaporeans.
