Singapore is a very interesting destination with a lot crammed into the small southeast Asian country. It is very highly developed and is a major hub for the region. Singapore doesn’t need to be a destination, instead, it can be a stop off to somewhere else in the region. It is not the cheapest place to visit but does have plenty of exciting adventures for those who do choose to stay there.
The most expensive hotel in the world is reputed to be a private submarine that costs ‘only’ $240,000 a night. But there are other underwater hotels around the world that are in the lower thousands like the Manat Resort which goes for less than $2,000 a night. In Singapore, one can have a similar experience if one stays that Resorts World Sentosa.

The centerpiece of the aquarium is the Open Ocean tank with around 50,000 marine animals in it. Until 2014, it had the world’s largest viewing panel (118 feet wide by 27 feet tall). Its massive panel was made to give visitors the feeling of being on the ocean floor.
