I landed in Singapore on the first day of Chinese New Year - while many businesses were closed, there was an atmosphere in the streets I really enjoyed taking in. It is such a mashup of cultures: Chinese, Malay, Indian all having a presence, in addition to heavy Western influences.
I had been warned Singapore might strike me as overcommercialized, but since I visited right after Dubai, I didn't feel it.
As always, perspective is everything.
