Below are a variety of photos from Singapore, which is by far the cleanest city we have both ever been to (through Kuala Lumpur was also surprisingly clean).
The most visually striking thing about the city was the amount of immaculately manicured landscaping – grass, shrubs and large tropical trees. With a tropical climate, pretty much anything thrown into the ground grows tall and fast. It was super humid.
You would be hard pressed to find any trash. Even walkways under city bridges were spotless (yes I looked, see the picture below). Of course, Chinatown and Little India were a different story, clean by Asian city standards but a bit more dishevelled. Yes, gum is outlawed here.
Check out our previous blog post for more about what we did here, which mostly entailed wandering around the city, searching for vegetarian food, drinking fruit shakes and sipping coffee!
