Singapore’s modern buildings and developments wouldn’t be
out of place in a sci-fi movie. But the city-state is also
one of Asia’s most forward-thinking destinations
in terms of its cultural preservation.

American journalist Ron Gluckman explores both Singapore’s rapid rise — a nation whose “modern buildings and developments wouldn’t be out of place in a sci-fi movie” — as well as the city state’s progressive view towards it’s cultural preservation, in ‘All That’s Old Is New Again’, our story in the February 2018 issue of Virgin Australia’s Voyeur.
