Singapore - Travel Information
Singapore is a unique multi-cultural Asian society, with a strong blend of Chinese, Malay and Indian traditions and a distinct British colonial heritage. It’s a small country with a population of only 4 million but there are a large number of reasons to spend time here. You can find great food, vibrant nightlife, arts and cultural events and it is easy to get around as English is widely spoken.
It is very much a modern garden destination in many respects with its downtown skyscrapers and 50 parks and 4 nature reserves. But it also retains its old colourful districts which are influenced by the ethnic mix that exists here. Apart from the ethnicity of Singapore, another major attraction is the amazing shopping much of which is centered on Orchard Road but also in the many night markets. Make sure you leave time to enjoy this shopper's paradise, especially during the Great Singapore Sale in July.
One important aspect of Singapore is its legendary food. You can enjoy fine dining or try the street stalls which provide a variety of tasty dishes. A little out of the downtown centre is the East Coast where you will find a selection of diverse restaurants side by side stretching along the coast in pleasant garden-like surroundings.
Singapore is a perfect destination to easily combine with other travel ideas. Begin an overland adventure from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur or Penang, experiencing all the stunning scenery in between…Or combine 3 destinations at once and continue all the way to Bangkok. Another great extension idea from Singapore is an exotic beach resort stay in the Indonesian island of Bintan - just 45 minutes away by ferry.
