I go to Kolkata frequently. I know some people are going to say that it is slummy and poor. But there is more to it that.

It actually has a vibrant food scene and I can guarantee you will find cuisines there that you won’t anywhere else.

What's the hygiene like though? A lot of Indians have the habit of defecating outside and washing hands after doesn't seem to be much of a priority.

Despite also being part of the developing world, one thing South Americans have, especially Brazilians and Colombians where 2 showers a day and eating with plastic gloves is a cultural norm, is that hygiene is sometimes over-the-top even more-so than many European and some N. American cultures.

The immediate vicinity of upscale restaurants, hotels, shopping malls, etc., are usually developed. They are like islands of wealth.

They don't let people defecate in those places. That is more likely in the slums. I don't recommend most people go to those places. lol.

Bangkok gets my vote. Honorable mention to Kuala Lumpur and, for smaller cities, Granada, Nicaragua and Galle, Sri Lanka.

I forgot Sao Paulo is borderline tropical. Literally on the tropic of Capricorn if I'm not mistaken.

The tropic of Capricorn almost defines the northern edge of the municipality of São Paulo. It actually crosses it, but only a small area in the rural region of Serra da Cantareira is above the tropics. The climate in São Paulo is humid subtropical CfA, according to the Köppen-Geiger classification.

Just follow the rules and you won't have any problems in Singapore. Most of the stuff is just common sense to me.
