This is one of the most expensive cities in the world, yet you can eat at a Michelin-starred restaurant here with $2 USD entrees.  This is also one of the smallest, yet most densely populated countries in the world, with 99% of its residents living in public flats. Unemployment here is non-existent, as additional workers are bused in from a neighboring country. This nation is still in its infancy but has worked its way up to become an economic powerhouse in just a matter of a few decades.

Republic of Singapore

While Singapore is the most expensive city in the world, Singapore’s Liao Fan Hawker Chan, a casual dine-in, is the world’s least expensive Michelin-star meal — the only place you can try Chef Chan’s iconic $2 USD chicken & rice dish.  

Singapore, sometimes referred to as the Lion City or the Little Red Dot, is a sovereign city-state in Southeast Asia. It lies one degree north of the equator, at the southern tip of peninsular Malaysia. In Singapore you will find the Marina Sands Hotel with its Infinity Pool as well as the Raffle’s hotel (built in 1887), home of the Singapore Sling.

Some of the odd laws here… There is a strict law forbidding all chewing gum in Singapore. The fine for chewing gum is $750 and $10,000 for selling chewing gum. Feeding pigeons will cost you $500, connecting to another person’s Wi-Fi will cost you a hefty $10,000, and failing to flush a public toilet incurs a $150 penalty — the same for smoking in public. Spitting will cost you $1,000 and the penalty for selling drugs in Singapore is punishable by death. “Caning” is also a mandatory punishment for certain offences such as rape, illegal moneylending, and for foreigners who overstay by more than 90 days – a measure designed to deter illegal immigrants.
