Editor's Note: Here's someone's paradise. So give it a read and then take some time to tell us about yours. You can do it right on this site.

My friends and I did not quite plan a trip to Singapore. It was more of a last-minute thing.

We said, "Let's go to Singapore and see what happens."

During our flight to Singapore, I was having second thoughts. We didn't know where to go or what to do.

We arrived in Singapore at 2 a.m. on a Saturday. It seemed very quiet. I've been to many cities around the world, and I can tell you that Singapore is in my top three. It's definitely an Asian paradise.

Singapore is the cleanest and safest city in Asia, and enjoys of a huge cultural diversity and different ethnic backgrounds, making it easy for foodies like me to satisfy my adventurous cravings.

Singapore is an Asian New York; where you can find people and neighborhoods from all around the world. It's also a huge business and technology center, with stores ranging from Cold Stone Creamery to Prada and Gucci. There's also family parks, including Universal Studios and Disney World.

Tourists can enjoy outside activities such as beaches, parks and cruises. And the public transportation is very easy to use.

Singapore has great history and tradition, and is very safe and affordable.
