Interesting Wikipedia stat on car ownership. On the other side of the coin I read that the most profitable Maserati dealership in the world is located in Singapore. The owners have to take them over into Malaysia to open them up and keep the engines in tune.

I've been to Singapore about 6-7 times. I love the city.

As an American who has lived in Asia for a long time, Singapore has the largest diversity of food that I can find anywhere in Asia. I can find AMerican fastfood chains (like Taco Bell or Wendys - which are not that common at all in Asia), plus a great mix of amazing Chinese, Indian, and Malay cuisines, plus all the expat stuff that they bring.

I like the Chinatown and the Little India quite a bit. Both are unique and colorful. I also like the architecture in general across Singapore. You can walk a long ways with the roofs protecting you from the rains.

It's clean and safe, and has a lot of interesting little pockets and corners.

The only thing I don't like about it, is if you try to walk from Point A to Point B, you sometimes walk along some very car-centric places. But if you just come out of a metro station, you'll have quite a bit all around those spots.

Overall, favorable impressions, and I'm looking forward to visiting Singapore again.
