Singapore is one of the most popular travel destinations in the world for a lot of reasons. One of which is the less stringent entry requirements.Combining the skyscrapers and subways of a modern, affluent city with a medley of Chinese, Malay and Indian influences and a tropical climate, with tasty food, good shopping and a vibrant night-life scene, this Garden City makes a great stopover or springboard into the region.
The centre of the city is located in the south — consisting roughly of the Orchard Road shopping area, the Riverside, the new Marina Bay area
|Riverside (Civic District)||Singapore's colonial core, with museums, statues and theatres, not to mention restaurants, bars and clubs.|
|Orchard Road||Miles and miles of shopping malls.|
|Marina Bay||The newest feature of Singapore, dominated by the Marina Bay Sands integrated resort (hotel, casino, shopping mall, convention centre and museum) and the Marina Barrage. The newly opened Gardens by the Bay situated next to Marina Bay Sands integrated resort is a large public garden which house two huge cooled conservatories – the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest as well as a cluster of gigantic Super Trees.|
|Bugis and Kampong Glam||Bugis and Kampong Glam are Singapore's old Malay district, now largely taken over by shopping|
|Chinatown||The area originally designated for Chinese settlement by Raffles, now a Chinese heritage area popular with tourists. Singapore's largest (arguably only) gay enclave is here too.|
|Little India||A piece of India to the north of the city core.|
