Singapore City, Singapore

Singapore is known for being one of the most advanced cities on the planet. The city has a high profile way of life and has one of the cleanest and healthiest atmospheres you’ll ever encounter.

Despite it being a modern city, Singapore maintains the cleanliness and safety of the environment by following the (clearly effective) standards they’ve set. People in this town also live a healthy lifestyle. They’ve taken cleanliness into the next level that you can’t even spit on the streets or else you’ll be charged in the state.

Kobe, Japan

As expected from the Japanese, they have one of the cleanest cities in the world too! Japan has gained popularity because of its technology, but it’s also famous for keeping their environment clean and safe. They probably use lots of pressure washers in this place!

The waste management system in Japan, as well as its continuous improvement, is impressive. Japan is exerting a lot of effort for an eco-friendly environment, and the Japanese are also advocates of green environment. What more could we expect from the people who developed the concept of Kaizen?

Shanghai, China

Dubbed as the “Paris of the East,” Shanghai is a waterfront city that is popular for its industrialization and multicultural metropolises. It’s even an ultimate shopping destination and is one of the cleanest cities you’ll ever visit. Aside from the cleanliness of the place, you’ll also enjoy the beautiful sceneries, and the Chinese delicacies served in its finest restaurants.

Mawlynnong Village, India


The last one on our list isn’t a city, but it’s worth mentioning. Located in the East Khasi Hills district of the Meghalaya state in India, this village has been awarded as the “Cleanest Village in Asia” last 2003 by Discover India Magazine. Tidying up is part of their tradition in this village, which means even toddlers and grandparents participate in maintaining the cleanliness of the community. Hopefully, though, more and more people will treat the act of cleaning as a ritual just like these Indians.
