I wish I had known...
That there are no moskitos in Singapore, that the water is clean to drink. Before going, a doctor recommended me to take a moskitos nest and some medicine to drink the water. No use! Singapore is so clean!!!
In my opinion:
Everybody loved it, you will too!

Personal recommendation:
Try to mix with local students, that means do not always stay with your international friends. The local you get to know will bring you many interesting things (culture, good advice, good spots...)



FINAL COMMENTS

Singapore is not really worth visiting in itself; but it is a good place to travel from: First tip, cambodia and the temples in Angkor, second tip, Koh Tarutao, a Thai island.
