If you mean bland in a sense of "boring" then I might disagree. Yes, I've heard people saying that but that's just not true! Singapore is one hell of a lively place be it day or night. The variety of restaurants, stylish waterfront cafes at night is just staggering, and they are hardly empty. It's true, it's very clean, tidy, ordered and strict. But isn't it what all other cities are trying to be (but still can't achieve it)? Singapore, in my opinion, is what most would call a "perfect city"... and that's not only in terms of visual appeal or just some specific topics. It's in terms of pretty much everything: transport, safety, cleanliness, nightlife, shopping, urban planning... etc. There seems to be a balance of everything and amazingly it does work! I wouldn't spend my money to go there again if it wasn't so fascinating.
