Singapore

Explore One of the world best
tourist attraction.

“The Little Red Dot”, “The Lion City”, and “Singapura”. This is an island a mere 50km long and 28km wide, but with sights, sounds, and smells that few countries many times larger, can offer. Glitzy shopping malls, swanky hotels, world-class theme parks, and Michelin-star restaurants, all make up this tiny island just a degree north of the Equator. Changi International Airport consistently wins the coveted prize of “World’s Best Airport”, and is in fact an attraction in itself, replete with indoor forests, the tallest indoor waterfall, a butterfly garden, a canopy bridge, and countless art installations.

Capitalising on its melting pot of cultures,
Singapore is finally getting some spark,
and is fast becoming one of Asia’s hit-list destinations.

TRAVEL TIPS

  • Singapore’s Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) is a traveler’s dream! The country has an impressive public transportation network that will take you anywhere you wish to go. Importantly, it is cheap, convenient, and safe.
  • Eat like the locals! Try the many food centres and hawker stalls around Chinatown, Little India, and Marina Bay. Be sure to savour Singaporean specialties such as Chicken Rice, Chili Crab, and Laksa.
  • Carry lightweight clothes and be sure to pack a rain jacket. The rain can come down heavily and without warning, but never for more than 30 minutes.
  • Singapore is well known for its many laws and regulations. Actions like spitting in the street, tossing your cigarette butt into a drain, or sticking your chewing gum on public property may result in a fine if you get caught. Most of the laws are common sense rules, but know that you may face harsh punishments that include incarceration and caning when it comes to infractions like vandalism.
