Dear Thomas

How are you? I am so excited that you are coming to Singapore in 3 weeks' time and I can't wait to take you to all the cultural and modern places in Singapore! Let's enjoy ourselves as much as we can on that day.

As the places we are visiting would be crowded if we go there late, shall I meet you and your parents in the hotel at 8 am As you wanted to learn about the cultural aspects of Singapore, I would take you to Chinatown, a cultural place of interest. There, you could learn about the Chinese culture and could look at beautifully restored shophouses, colonial buildings and modern buildings! You can also take a rickshaw ride around the area and you could also buy souvenirs, fashion apparel and leather goods at the lively street market.

Then, we would go to Little India, another cultural place of interest. There, you could learn about the Indian culture and walk around one of the most colourful districts in Singapore! You could also walk around one of the shophouses and purchase traditional Indian apparel, gold bangles, spices and other wares.

As you are also keen to learn the modern aspects of Singapore, I would take you to the Singapore Flyer, which is the world's biggest observation wheel! You could also take in panoramic views of Singapore's iconic landmarks like the Marina Bay, Merlion Park and the Empress Palace. Then, you could also go to the Marina Bay and go to the top of the building to see the full view of the city.

In Singapore, you could try many delicious local dishes, which includes laksa, mee siam, Hainanese chicken rice, chilli crab and much more!

I hope the itinerary I planned is good to you and I hope you could learn many cultural and modern aspects of Singapore and also enjoy the local food there. I really look forward to seeing you in three weeks' time, and I really hope you enjoy your stay.

Your best cousin
