When you fly over Malaysia, all you see is green. That’s rainforest. When you drive through Malaysia, all you see is green. Still the rainforest. With an occasional monkey on the side of the highway. When you fly over Singapore, all you see is buildings. When you drive through Singapore, it’s pretty much the same. With just a hop over the border you can easily explore both places.
