新加坡之旅

新加坡是如此独特!原因如下:

1.有四种本国语言。

2.公共运输系统可通轮椅。虽然,由于坡度陡峭,我一个人要自己爬上公交车是很艰难的。

3.尽管它是一个很小的国家,但它是如此多样化,几乎每个人都说第二语言。

4.到目前为止,我已经看到中国人,印度人,马来人,欧洲人,美国人,中东人等等,还有许多实际居住在这里的人。这是一个充满多样性,包容性和便利的基础设施的国家。

5.这里的人们非常友好,礼貌和乐于助人。

6.大多数人也会说英语。

7.在这里你可以吃到全世界各地的美食。我从未见过像新加坡这样具有如此多样,井然有序,包容性的国家。

8.到处都有标牌提醒人们要善良,提供帮助,把座位让给更多需要座位的人。我对这些这些无处不在的标示牌其实并不感到惊讶,但让我觉得难得的是人们真的会去按照标示牌说的去做。

9.到处都有洗手间;在商场,地铁站,饭店,其他公共场所等

10.新加坡的旅游景点没有提供免费或半价的门票向残疾人,但他们但无障碍设计是融入这个国家的血液的。

11.地铁中的标志非常清晰且易于使用。因为对于普通市民来说,不知道在火车站/公交车站上哪条线是很困难的。无论您是在购物中心,地铁站还是仅在街道上,这些标志都以多种语言清晰地标记。我以为Tapei的迹象很好,但我认为新加坡的表现甚至更好。

12.新加坡的国家吉祥物是狮子。显然,开国王子登陆时,他声称曾见过Singapura(意为狮子),因此这就是他们国家的名字的来源。

在上地铁之前,我刚刚读到一个标语,上面写着78%的新加坡人想了解更多关于另一种宗教的信息。这温暖了我的心。每当我去一个新的城市/国家旅行时,我总是问自己,我能看到自己长期住在这里吗?基础设施是否可访问足以容纳我的残障人士?答案是肯定的!这非常罕见,因为我从未在其他任何地方有过这种感觉。它不仅是我喜欢的无障碍基础设施,而且在基础和道德层面上与新加坡保持联系。这是一个真正的大熔炉,有来自世界各地的居民和游客;人民友善,乐于助人,文明,礼貌,友好,包容,世俗,守法和专业;与我之前所见过的相比,该基础架构更易于访问,整洁,有序且对用户友好。我真的很高兴我有机会能来到这样一个美丽的国家!

敬请期待明天的美国大使馆活动!

Singapore is so unique! Here’s why:

1. There are four national languages.

2. The public transportation system is wheelchair accessible. Although, it is a struggle to go up the ramps of the public buses by myself due to its steepness.

3. Even though it is a tiny, tiny country, it is so diverse and nearly everyone speaks a second language.

4. Thus far, I’ve seen Chinese people, Indian people, Malay people, European people, American people, Middle Eastern people, etc. and so many other people that actually live here. It is a true salad ? bowl made more beautiful by its diversity, inclusiveness, and accessible infrastructure.

5. People are very friendly, courteous and helpful here.

6. Most people also speak English.

7. There is food from all over the world . I’ve never seen a city/country quite like Singapore with such diversity, orderliness and inclusive to all.

8. There are signs everywhere reminding people to be kind, offer help, yield seats to people who may need it more and to be inclusive. It’s not particularly surprising that these signs are everywhere, but it IS unique that these people actually illustrate these traits. They not only talk the talk, but they also act the act.

9. Accessible restrooms are everywhere; in malls, metro stations, restaurants, other public spaces, etc.

10. Instead of providing free access or half priced tickets to people with disabilities for tourist attractions and other places, Singaporeans have universal design and accessibility programmed in the DNA of the country.

11. The signs in the MRT (aka metro) are extremely clear and user friendly. It would be a struggle for the general public to NOT know what line to get on in the train/bus stations. No matter if you are in malls, metro stations, or just on the street, the signs are excellently labeled in multiple languages. I thought Tapei’s signs were good, but I think Singapore’s might be even superior.

12. Singapore’s national mascot is a lion ?. Apparently when the founding Prince landed, he claimed to have seen a Singapura (meaning lion) so that is how their country’s name came about. However, lions are not native to Singapore so he probably saw something else...

Right before coming on the metro, I just read a sign that said 78% of Singaporeans want to learn more about another religion. This warms my heart . Every time I travel to a new city/country, I always ask myself, could I see myself living here long term? Is the infrastructure accessible enough to accommodate my disability? The answer for that is a resounding yes! This is very rare because I’ve never quite felt this way about any other place. It is not only the accessible infrastructure I like, but I connect with Singapore on a foundational and moral level. It is a true melting pot with residents and tourist from all over the world; the people are kind, helpful, civilized, courteous, friendly, inclusive, worldly, law-abiding, and professional; the infrastructure is more accessible, clean, orderly and user friendly than any I’ve seen previously. What a special gem of a country I’ve gotten the chance to encounter.

Stay tuned for my U.S. Embassy event tomorrow!
