Diversity doesn't get any wider than in Singapore. Despite its small size Singapore is home to many cultures, communities and religions, each accompanied by a rich heritage that dates far back. There's Little India, the Arab quarter, Chinatown, and the colonial district where you can admire the way the old blends with the new and feel the warmth of the locals as they welcome you with open arms.
Food lovers can indulge in Singapore's tasty food. In the streets you will find a lot of vast halls offering local cuisine, which is spectacular and amazingly cheap. Every year throughout the whole month of July you can visit the Singapore Food Festival, which gives you the chance to enjoy many unforgettable gastronomic experiences.
Singapore may be a cosmopolitan city but one of the distinct features of Singapore’s landscape is the tropical climate and the great amount of greenery. You can trek through the nature reserves to take in the sights of flora and fauna, or wander in one of Singapore’s many parks and gardens.
The arts scene in Singapore is certainly vibrant. You will find many artworks in the city walls or in its numerous museums and galleries. And when you admire the skyline of Singapore it soon becomes clear that the architecture reflects a range of influences and styles from different places and periods - from Malay houses to the Marina Bay Sands.
As night falls, Singapore transforms into a vibrant array of nightlife and entertainment choices. And getting around Singapore is a breeze. The public transport system is extremely easy to use and taxis are reasonably priced.
Experience a different Singapore every day and discover all that makes the city truly fascinating.
