Singapore made the Lonely Planet’s Top 10 countries to visit in 2015 and that means you should pay attention to this city when you plan your next trip this year.
Singapore was little more than a fishing village just over a century ago emerging as one of the world’s major commercial hubs, with the fourth-biggest financial center and one of the five busiest ports.
For such a small country Singapore has a ton to offer.
