What is the favourite hobby of Singaporeans, other than eating? It is.. SHOPPING! Singapore is famous for being a shopping paradise, and many tourists come from all around the world to Singapore for their annual shopping fix, especially in the middle of the year when the Great Singapore Sale is on.
One of the best shopping malls for tourists is Suntec City Mall, because of its very convenient location in the city area, its huge floor space and its world famous Fountain of Wealth. The Fountain of Wealth holds the world record for the largest fountain in the entire world.
The Fountain of Wealth, surrounded by the five towering blocks of Suntec City. has many symbolic meanings. Other than being a grand tourist attraction, it is also good for feng shui.
The 5 Suntec City towers represent the fingers and thumb of a left hand, with the location of the fountain being its palm. In feng shui, water represents life and wealth and the inflow of the fountain represents wealth pouring into the palm of Singapore.
On some days, the fountain is turned off and tourists are invited to take a walk around the Fountain three times while touching the water for good luck.
