On Sunday, two travel writers will speak about their visit to Singapore island as part of the Singapore Book Fair 2021. Singaporeans are known for their love of travel, but the COVID-19 crisis has hampered global exchanges in recent years, but it has also given everybody a reason to explore their own country.
From May 29 to June 6, Ye Xiaozhong and Lawrence Liu will talk about their experiences exploring the local area at the “Singapore Book Fair 2021,” so that everyone can see a different Singapore.
Ye Xiaozhong is a seasoned travel journalist. He handles travel literature and publishes travel reference books.
Readers who are familiar with the Lianhe Zaobao supplement can read Ye Xiaozhong’s thoughts on the cover on a regular basis in the past year. In each issue, he introduces a new theme to encourage readers to dig deeper. Any change of theme means a change of perspective, whether it’s architecture, public art, islands, hiking, or self-driving tours.
“Singapore is a tiny island with nothing to offer in terms of scenery. It is, however, important for someone who wants to learn about Singapore. You can now use a variety of approaches, such as taking a bus to new places and shifting your outlook on travel. Keep an eye on things. Alternatively, read some books from the 1950s, such as “Science City Sanji,” and compare them; you may learn something new.”
Furthermore, Singapore is small in size, making it simple to do anything.
However, Singapore has several rules, and you might not be able to do all you want when visiting, such as camping. You must submit, according to Ye Xiaozhong, and you are not permitted to light a campfire. While it is understandable that the authorities are out of security, it can be frustrating at times.
In the past year, Ye Xiaozhong has continued to unearth fascinating stories about Singapore and has met a variety of interesting people, including those who fished in Changi Village. Many of them were fishermen who knew the names of all the fish and how to cook them, and their conversation would be rich in rewards.
Regulators for disease control have been tightened once again, which is unfortunate. I’m hoping that once the limits are removed, everyone will be able to interact more effectively.
Because of his racing, Lawrence was exposed to a variety of perspectives on Singapore. Lawrence, who often publishes travel reports and movie reviews in newspapers, began running again after retiring last year. He recalled that he had just completed the 14-day home quarantine when he returned from a trip to New Zealand, and the Singaporean government announced steps to combat the virus. If you wanted to get out at the moment, you could just go for a run. The editor of the supplement happened to see his pictures on social media, and he was immediately encouraged to discuss the beautiful Singapore that he had taken while running in the Morning Post Weekly on National Day. Later, he was asked to write two series of running routes and discovering the secrets of natural scenery for the journal “You 1 Week,” which has now been compiled into a book.
Lawrence said in an interview: “I thought the magazine was kidding at first, but I had no idea there were so many interesting things to write about in the city, and I wrote a lot.
The second series focused on a natural scenic location. Lawrence said with a smile that he decided to look at the local natural scenery in a different mood because he was tired from running.
He was hesitant at first, but the region contains four nature reserves and 20 natural parks. He discovered there are so many nice places after completing his homework.
Lawrence’s most recent book “Let’s get started. At the moment, “U 1 Week” is serialising his latest season, which is set on Singapore’s outer islands.
When you go for a walk in the woods, you will almost certainly come across insects, snakes, and wild boars. When seeing wild animals, Lawrence advises everyone to keep a safe distance.
