Some Top Attractions of Singapore


Singapore (nicknamed "the Lion City") is Asia’s favorite holiday destination. Polished and pampered, for the visitor, it packs quite a punch in a small package. Full of character and surprisingly accommodating, this city is alive throughout the night and bustling all through the day. First time in here? A great two-day Singapore itinerary includes exciting top attractions, shopping districts, and modern marvels, as well as the leisurely, tropical side of this unique city-state.




Food and Festivals

Because of its exciting ethnic blend, Singapore boasts a culinary variety like no other Asian city. Food is truly a national obsession and this is reflected in the hoards of bistros, cafes and gourmet restaurants that always seem to be swarmed with enthusiastic revelers! Expect a legendary nightlife; you can party the night away, hopping from one club to another and always have somewhere new to visit the next evening.

Furthermore, the local tourism board sponsors the Singapore Food Festival from late August through early September. Plus other scrumptious spots and events in every corner of the city make sure that you’ll sample food that you couldn’t possibly get anywhere else, such as Chinatown's Food Street; the Suvai in Little India; food on wheels on Nyonya Mobile; and of course the BBQ by the Beach.



There are some other goodies you don’t want to miss out on. The Singapore Arts Festival in May is colorful and prestigious enough, but you’ll probably also be interested in the Great Singapore Sale – a June/July shopping extravaganza when all the stores pull out every imaginable stop. Antiques, books, cameras, clothes, computers, fabrics and tea – these and more open up on Orchard Road and Scotts Road.




Singapore Night Safari

Take your kids on a night safari at the city’s world-famous zoo or head to the mystifying Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, a patch of virgin rainforest for some unforgettable mountain biking.




Sentosa Island

Once a British military base, this two-square-mile isle off the city's southern shore is home to, among other things, lush rainforests; award-winning spas; a casino; several sandy beaches; a paur if golf courses; more than a dozen resort hotels; exciting events; and various themed attractions such as Universal Studios Singapore and an underwater rendezvous with sharks that's sure to go down as one of the most memorable experiences of your life.



Dragon Boat Festival

Held in early June, this is the real kick-off to the energetic madhouse that is a Singaporean summer. This carnival-like regatta, held annually, is an ancient race inherited from China. At the Bedok reservoir, you get to immerse yourself in a whole host of rites and rituals, as a precursor to a frenzy that rivals that of a Manchester United match at Old Trafford.
