Singapore, A Civilized Country, Modern, with Human Rights. But the way they treat residents from other countries is no different from treating animals, they see us as criminals when we're innocent! I booked a return ticket from Singapore Airlines and a 5 night stay at Marina Bay Sands, the total cost up to $ 4000, and we carried a handbag with $3000 cash on hand. We did not bring any illegal stuff, and we all speak English. The only problem was that the booking for the hotel was not under my name, because I asked my friend to do it (she's a Casino membership so can book for a cheaper price on agoda 30 %). When customs requested, this same friend called up and spoke to the officials to confirm that I asked her book the room under her name. Customs can call the hotel to confirm.
