Internship experience in Singapore

Internship in Singapore

Singapore is an extraordinary country that is home to a cocktail of nationalities and an array of cultures. As soon as you arrive in this sovereign city-state, you will notice that Singapore is one of the cleanest, safest, and most developed country, not only in Asia but across the globe. The lifestyle of an international intern in Singapore can be very appealing because you have the opportunity to work in a first-class city while exploring all of the incredible features that The Lion City has to offer.

During your leisure time away from your Singapore internship you will have the chance to create your own adventure and visit some amazing landmarks. While in Singapore we highly suggest you visit the famous Merlion and the iconic Marina Bay Sands, which has a stunning infinity swimming pool. Other popular attractions that you can’t miss are Universal Studios on Sentosa Island and the astonishing Botanic Gardens. And when you are ready to try the local Singaporean cuisine, some must-try dishes are Laksa (coconut curry soup with noodles), Satay (grilled meat skewers with peanut sauce), and Char Siew Rice (barbequed pork with rice). These dishes are always best to try at a local Hawker Center, which is always made homestyle.
