We visited Singapore a couple of years ago and I loved it too. I think I like the scale - nothing seems too big (except maybe the shops on orchard Rd!). It's very compact.


I find that whenever I transit through Singapore it does feel like home, compared with wherever I've been to (mostly Europe, but sometimes even Asia). Sydney these days is an increasingly asian city, and even when the brands aren't the same in Singapore, they feel like the same style. I think Singapore's neatness means that it feels much more familiar to an Australian than other asian cities, and there is a lot of cultural cross fertilisation back and forth.


And even Australian voice-overs on some of the ads and other disconcerting touches like that.
