Looking for a destination where you can shop till you drop, marvel at nature, sip cocktails in a legendary hotel, trek in an ancient rain forest and enjoy a vibrant festival, all in one day? Welcome to Singapore where you can do all this and much more.
This Southeast Asian city state features beaches and amusement parks for children, some of the best shopping in Asia, and some happening nightlife. Furthermore, as a true cosmopolitan community it hosts a rich calendar of festivals including Chinese New Year, the Hindu Deepavali Festival, and the Singapore Grand Prix.
Another big plus is that it's a convenient city to get around. Public transportation is outstanding with modern buses, metered taxis, and an underground system (MRT) that services the city all the way to the airport. Also, the standard of English is the highest in the region. Rich in culture and history while embracing all that's modern and progressive, this island state is a captivating destination with something for everyone.
Singapore packs a lot into its modest 719.1 square kilometres, and its compact form means you can get a lot done in just a few days. The Lion City, as it's known, was founded by Sir Stanford Raffles as a trading post for the British East India Company in 1888. Since its independence in 1965, it has blossomed into the region's major financial and commercial hub, and an Asian shopping and tourism attraction with few rivals. Singapore also features large swathes of greenery, and is home to botanical gardens, and the new Gardens by the Bay complex which covers 101 hectares of reclaimed land on the waterfront. To really go back to nature, you need to travel just a few kilometres out of the city centre. Here you can find ancient rain forests alive with exotic wildlife such as chattering monkeys and sun-loving giant lizards.
