It's hard to imagine that this little island is actually both a city and a country, and that it's also a thriving metropolis with some of the best shopping on offer in the world (all duty free!), fabulous luxury hotels, superb cuisine and stunning year-round weather. In fact, Singapore is one of the busiest and most important ports and financial centres in the world.
If you enjoy being able to shop till you drop, then head for famous Orchard Road, which is full of modern malls offering everything you could wish for. And once you tire of shopping, there's lots more to do in this exciting destination, which is a charming mix of Malay, Chinese and Indian cultures. Take a ride on a traditional trishaw through the narrow streets in Chinatown to see its temples and stores, or grab the cable car for a trip up Mount Faber to enjoy a magnificent 360-degree view of the lively city below you.
Have a fun-filled day on Sentosa Island, which offers every type of entertainment imaginable, from theme parks to historic and cultural attractions. Then discover the cultural treasures in the Arab Quarter and Little India, before heading to visit a host of fun family-friendly activities, including Singapore Zoo and Singapore Discovery Centre.
The city is full of scenic beauty and fine British Colonial architecture as well as all sorts of religious buildings, from Hindu and Chinese temples to Islamic mosques. Of course, with so many fascinating cultures living here, the food is varied and exciting - and the nightlife is lively, too.
