Singapore, in the midst of a construction boom, is an international hub and has set its sights on becoming the world’s top digital nation. No matter how you get to this island city-state (maybe the $18,000 Singapore Airlines suite with a flat-screen TV, double bed and gourmet meals?) you’ll be sure to love this bustling metropolis, bursting with creativity and innovation.
