Singapore. You can not cycle any further South – that is as far as you can get in South East Asia without taking a ferry. We have heard a lot of stories about this young but well developed country. We felt great crossing the border between Malaysia and Singapore – just like entering into another universe. Everything was sparkling clean, skyscrapers dominating the landscape and the traffic became more predictable. We felt almost as if we came back to Europe!

Singaporean Siesta

Singapore attracts migrant workers from neighboring Malaysia and Indonesia, as well as Bangladesh, Myanmar and India. Low-paid laborers contrast with rich locals, whose main hobby is spending many in the countless shopping centers.

The land on the island is very expensive, so Singaporeans have to make the most out of it. The farms are quite often hydroponic and the residential buildings often more than 20 floors high.Indoor Farm

Extreme humidity and heat makes it hard to enjoy spending time outside. Our bikes got rusty and mold grew on every part of our bike that was edible. Oh Singapore, you could be such a nice place, but why are you so hot?In the mirror
