Maybe that’s what some people often ask if they are going on vacation to Singapore. As if, there are no other activities that can be done there other than shopping. There is another opinion that says “If you go to Singapore, you must go to Universal Studios if you don’t go to the Merlion Statue”. As if Singapore is only limited to that-that’s all. In fact, if we can explore more deeply, it turns out that Singapore does not only have “those” tourist attractions.
