What do you do in transit or pre-flight?
I have a meal—usually sushi, because it’s light. 

The last time Wesley visited Singapore was six years ago, and although he’s only back for two nights this time, he still has fond memories of the city. “I like the Marina Bay area, Clarke Quay, Orchard Road, and the zoo,” he says. “And I’m going to 1-Altitude later to meet my friends!” This fondness extends to Changi Airport, too, which he describes as convenient, with great infrastructure, and good wifi. “There’s easy access to the city, and the service is excellent. It’s modern, smooth, and fast, so I’m usually able to exit quickly after my flight,” he says. “I feel calm when I’m here.”

Wesley seems to be making his rounds around the region, having come from Kuala Lumpur, where he spent a couple days exploring the city, and heading off to Bangkok next, to meet up with his girlfriend who’s been there on holiday for the past three months.

He might not look it, in his go-to travel gear of jeans and sneakers, but Wesley actually works in banking. “I actually like the challenges that I face, and the fact that my job allows me to meet people and to travel, mainly around Europe,” he says. “When I’m not travelling, my style depends on the occasion. When I go out, it’ll be something more elegant—a shirt, blazer, and nice trousers—but when I’m at home, I prefer a hoodie, something really easy-going.” Wesley’s heading back home to Switzerland after his brief sojourn in Asia, and leaves us with a quick list of the best things about his hometown: “The bars, the mountains, and the chocolates,” he says. “And people are happy there!”
