Singapore Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 48%, Singapore is one of the world's coolest urban spaces with more to offer within its relatively small confines than some countries hundreds of times its size. Perhaps the best way to describe Singapore is to equate it to a delectable recipe that encompasses all the best of Asia, with a sprinkling of garnishes from the West. At the heart of Singapore is its diversity with quarters like Little India, Chinatown, the Arab District, and the area around Raffles Landing, which combine into a whirlwind of cultures, traditions and culinary delights that will utterly captivate you. One of the best times to visit is during the city's many festivals, such as the Chinese New Year, when Chinatown explodes into color and sound with parades and fireworks that will leave you wanting more. Singapore also offers such eclectic offers as the man-made resort island of Sentosa, a slice of paradise complete with beaches, championship golf courses, resorts, and world class entertainment. Then there is Fantasy Island - one of Asia's best theme parks - and the world famous Jurong Bird Park, and the Singapore Zoo, which are widely hailed as some of the world's best. On top of all this, Singapore is a shopping Mecca that draws millions to Orchard Road and Mustafa Centre, open 24 hours and stocked with almost everything imaginable – over 150,000 items to be exact. So, regardless of whether you've come for the week or you're just passing through, Singapore will have more than enough to keep you occupied.
