'''Hiroshima''' (広島) is an industrial city of wide boulevards and criss-crossing rivers, located along the coast of the [[Seto Inland Sea]]. Although many only know it for the horrific split second on August 6, 1945, when it became the site of the world's first atomic bomb attack, it is now a modern, cosmopolitan city with a lot of great food and nightlife.

'''Singapore''' is a city-state in [[Southeast Asia]]. Founded as a British trading colony in 1819, since independence it has become one of the '''world's most prosperous countries''' and sports the world's busiest port.  Combining the skyscrapers and subways of a '''modern, affluent city''' with a medley of Chinese, Indian and Malay influences and a '''tropical climate''', with tasty food, good shopping and a vibrant nightlife scene, this Garden City makes a great stopover or springboard into the region.

Long considered the backwaters of the city, this old working class district is now undergoing rapid development, contributing to some wonderful contrasts; from the huge uncultivated wetlands of '''Kalvebod Fælled''', the ultra modern '''Ørestad''' development area, the laid back and impossibly picturesque '''Dragør''' fishing hamlet to the fiercely local patriotic public housing blocks on the northern part of the island.

It is also the transportation hub of Vaud, and a gateway to the alpine Canton of the Valais, home to some of the best known ski slopes in the world.
