The year of 2015 marks fifty years of independence and Singapore has celebrated its success with style throughout the year. From being just a small port city back in the days, the tiny state has transformed into a global trade hub and a financial powerhouse.

The small country is located in the very southern tip of continental Asia and just north of the equator, which makes it a perfect destination all year round with its humid and warm climate. The country itself is small and comprises of a diamond-shaped main island together with more than 60 smaller islets. The nickname "Little Red Dot" refers to the size of the small country as seen on the world map but Singapore is often called the Garden City or the Lion City which is the meaning of the original name - Singapura. The icon of the city is called "Merlion" with a body of a fish and a head of a lion to trace it roots as a fishing village and the lion city. The big concrete statue guards the bay area and inlet to Singapore River and is a given attraction to visit.

This area is also the most modern with the impressive Marina Bay Sands Hotel and Gardens by the Bay. The older colonial parts of Singapore has also a lot to offer with Boat Quay and the classic Raffles Hotel. It's in the Long Bar at Raffles Hotel where you can order the traditional Singapore Sling drink and strangely be prompted to throw peanut shells on the floor!

The mighty Pulpit Rock outside Stavanger is well worth a visit but you better hurry before the snow starts falling.
