This trip was the most exciting opportunity I’ve had in my life so far! Singapore is a hub of opportunity and travel. I got the chance to visit 5 countries in Southeast Asia for very affordable prices. CIEE staff was very helpful in making my travel dreams come true! There were always things to do and see. I really enjoyed my time with my professors and other students as well. In Singapore I have built life-long friendships from people all around the world! I am very thankful to experience this opportunity in the early stages of my career.

What was your funniest moment?
It’s hard to pick one certain funny moment out of all the ones I have experienced. I have never felt happier in my life and had a better time than here. My new friends made me laugh every day!

One of my Best Travel Experiences

From when I got there to when I left, Singapore had me in awe. Beautiful and full of culture but modern in technology and architecture, Singapore is a unique place to go abroad. It's a fantastic option for someone's first study abroad experience, whether you want to visit alone or with a friend group! CIEE people care about the students, and everyone who studies abroad is in the same boat as you, so you form nice bonds with the rest! You put in the work but have plenty of time to discover all of Singapore.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Budget! Singapore is a very nice city where you can find food at a good price, but after a couple of weeks, your bank account starts to feel the hit. Most of your expenses will be unplanned; so plan for that!
  • Great friends
  • Wider Network
  • Different perspective on the world
  • Spent a lot of money
  • Away from family for holidays
