Singapore
The Essential
Singapore, which is both a city and an archipelago, boasts an extraordinarily vibrant atmosphere. Experience this bustling ambience in the picturesque quarters of Chinatown and Little India, below the towering high-rise buildings in the business district, and admire the tempting food stalls in the New Market in Geylang Serai. Learn all about the history of Singapore in the museums of the Colonial District, the cultural epicentre of the city, or join in with the city's national sport - shopping, notably in the ultra-modern shopping malls along Orchard Road. However, although Singaporians have created a highly modern city, they have also preserved their surrounding natural landscape, as demonstrated by the primary equatorial forest in the Central Catchment Nature Reserve, the famous night safaris and the lush Singapore Botanic Gardens. Water sports can be enjoyed at the East Coast Park, while beach-lovers will appreciate the tranquil atmosphere of the beaches on Pulau Ubin, a small unspoilt island of the archipelago. Finally, food enthusiasts will be in their element in Singapore, where Chinese, Malaysian and Indian dishes are just some of the options available.
