I adore the place, have many friends there and have visited often over the years.
Those drugs you’re thinking of taking with you are all widely and easily available (at less than half the cost of here).
When I would go I would always take my eyeglass prescription and get new glasses, the latest, coolest frames and a large cost savings. The same is true for most newer electronic gadgets, the latest, plus things you’ve never heard of yet, at great savings, definitely worth checking out. (High quality dentistry falls into the same category, if you’re thinking of having anything really expensive done.)
If you are smallish, or know girls who are smallish, and find getting small things difficult like clothes or bracelets - Singapore is the THE place to visit. I only wear bracelets I’ve bought there, all others come flying off whenever I gesture or wave my hands about.
Do not miss the Ancients Civilizations Exhibition, it is world class and will inform you about the Straits and their history as well as give you context for the surrounding cultures.
The bird park and the zoo are also worth visiting, it’s a wealthy nation and these things are beautifully built and maintained in a lovely and warm climate. Wear a hat!
Eat, eat and eat. The food in S’pore is better than anywhere else in Asia, I promise. The Indian food is better than in India. In India the chickens tend to be ‘racing’ chickens, as in, all grisle and bone. The best ingredients make for fabulous foods from all the surrounding cultures.
Food not to be missed:
Hokkien Chicken Rice
Won Ton Mee
Anything in little India,
Bbq Baby squid,
air flown swiss chocolates,
…I could go on all day long, but now I’m getting hungry.
Man, now I’m all green with envy!
