YourSingapore Guide: Singapore is your instant travel companion. This app aims to help you explore the wonders and beauty of the Lion City.

I love traveling. And yes, I dream of visiting Singapore someday. Actually, I was supposed to go to Singapore last month with my friends. However, because of work load and some unfortunate events I failed to join them in the trip. Poor me. I felt really bad and devastated for quite some time because I was looking forward to it. On the other hand, because I intend to stay positive as much as possible and stop myself from sulking since it happened already and there’s nothing more I can do about it, I just told myself that I still have time to pursue this dream of mine. Just like what my friend said, “Singapore will always be in Singapore. You can still visit it anytime you wish.” With this in mind, your hunch is right. My answer is a loud “Yes!”. I am still planning to travel to Singapore given the chance.

Anyway, enough of my unrequested storytelling. Sorry about that. I came across that story because in this app review I will present to you one of the coolest and most helpful travel applications that you can install on your Android and iOS devices. Hopefully, this travel app that I will feature is going to be your instant tourist buddy-app when you go to the Asia’s Lion City, no other than Singapore.
