British TikToker and content creator Leuan Jones has amused Singaporean netizens after showing his love to the city state and describing his visit to Gardens by the Bay as a “bucket-list thing.”

His video posted on TikTok on Jan. 31 included a series of clips that show him gushing over the scenic views at Gardens by the Bay in the heart of Singapore.

In the video, he could be seen covering in sweat under the sweltering heat in Singapore as he happily tells the camera: "I'm boiling, I'm sweating from every single hole in my body.

"But I'm about to do a bucket list thing and I literally - I've wanted to do this for years - and I can't believe I'm here!"

His video quickly went viral on social media, attracting 287,400 views, 37,400 likes and 410 comments as of Tuesday, with many Singaporean netizens thanking him for promoting Singapore.

One commented: "Thanks for reminding us that Singapore is pretty nice. Many things to be thankful for."

Another wrote "As a Singaporean... I've never been there, but you hyped it up so I'm going to go."

Many Singaporeans thanked Jones for showing love to Singapore and for sharing his first-ever experience, saying that his video had made them proud of the country and appreciate it more.

Set in the heart of Singapore's downtown, Gardens by the Bay is home to a diverse collection of over 1.5 million plants that hail from every continent except Antarctica.
