Singapore is a city-state of soaring skylines, elegant temples, and tropical rainforests, a true multicultural melting pot. From the vibrant colors of Chinatown down to the quaint Colonial Quarter, from the bustling Arab Street to the spice-laden air of Little India, where Tamil music blares amid musty spice shops and crowded restaurants, Singapore’s contrasts are always visible.
Head to Singapore’s hawker centers for chilli crab and spicy street noodles. While you’re there, take a trip to the Singapore Flyer, the world’s tallest Ferris wheel. One of the best ways to see the island’s glittering financial district is with a river cruise by Marina Bay.
And how about taking a night safari through the Singapore Zoo? Get a taste of the country’s colonial past with a Singapore Sling cocktail at the ritzy Raffles Hotel. And be sure to visit the Changi Museum, a moving memorial to the horrors of WWII. From ramshackle colonial port to glittering triumph of consumerism, in Singapore, you’ll never be bored.
