The Singapore MRT’s new Northeast Line, according to one site, is supposed to be opening in 5 days! (The Strait Times confirms this, but won’t let you access their archives for free). Sounds like a good reason to take a trip to me!
Honestly, the SMRT was one of the cleanest, most efficient transportation systems I’ve used. Then again, in a city that issues a fine for chewing gum, maybe that shouldn’t be a surprise?
