Singapore, Asia

Singapore has come a long way from just a stopover for long haul flights from Europe and other parts of Asia to the Oceanic region. The small nation has reinvented and repackaged itself from a boring sterile place to one of the world’s hottest destinations. There are a lot of things to do in this tiny city state. There are rainforests teeming with exotic flora and fauna. For most visitors, however, Singapore’s principal attraction is its status as a retail heaven. Its malls are temples for shopaholics, packed with designer clothes, the latest electronics and generic economically priced brands.

Visitors to Singapore flock to its ethnic enclaves, of which Little India is the most visited. It has photogenic Hindu temples, appetising curry houses and shops retailing spices and exotic produce. The nearby golden domes of Sultan Mosque and Arab Street are also a must visit. Cross the river and you reach Chinatown with its fully restored Chinese mansion and shrines. The characteristic shophouses form an unique Singaporean attraction.

The British have also left their mark. The Colonial District to the north of Singapore river has a number of grand Neoclassical buildings like Parliament House, City Hall and the world famous Raffles Hotel. You can sift through history in the National Museum. The newest slice of the city is Marina Bay, with a namesake casino resort, an arts center Esplanade – Theaters on the Bay and Gardens by the Bay.
