“Traveling – It leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.”
At least once a year, you should go to a place you’ve never been to before. You will explore a new culture, discover new things, your mind will be refreshed, and of course, you’ll make a lot of memories.
One of the most beautiful places that you can plan to visit is, Singapore. Almost every five years the city is changing, and even if you’ve been here before, each time it is a new experience.
Known for its lovely culture, cleanliness, high street fashion, and more, you have ample opportunities to explore. Plus, there are many convenient flights available including YVR to SIN at Cathay Pacific, and more.
Here are some reasons why Singapore is a must-visit destination for a vacation.

It is a great attraction for tourists as they enjoy the indigenous culture, do not face many issues with language, and get a variety of things to experience.
Also, in Singapore, all the festivals here are celebrated with an equal amount of enthusiasm, and spirit of festivity.
