Visit the small city-state which has rich cultural attractions, grand buildings, vast shopping malls and delicious street food.

Singapore is a small, prosperous city-state. The skyline is dotted with ultra-modern skyscrapers, but you’ll appreciate the past in its colorful ethnic districts. Experience the city’s cultural diversity, dine on local specialties, ride on top of a giant Ferris wheel and unwind on beaches.

Explore Singapore’s historic ethnic enclaves. Enjoy the culture, cuisine and shopping of Kampong Glam, the Muslim quarter. Tour the temples and markets of Little India and visit the shops, restaurants and parks of Chinatown.

Eat like the locals by embracing Singapore’s street food culture. Pull up a plastic chair at a food court or hawker center and sample flavors reflecting the nation’s mix of Chinese, Malay, Indian and Indonesian cultures. Try fish head curry, meat satays and bak chor mee, noodles with minced meat and mushrooms.

Singapore has trendy boutiques, large department stores and many shopping malls, a magnet for shoppers or convenience if needs arise. The main shopping street is Orchard Road, featuring designer brands, high-end fashions, jewelry and electronics.

Just off Singapore’s southern coast, find Sentosa Island, a small island resort. Visit beaches, go on nature walks and ride on the coasters of its theme parks. Access Sentosa by cable car from Mount Faber or walk, drive or take public transportation across the short causeway.

View Singapore from its lofty landmarks. See the cityscape from a capsule on the 540-foot (165-meter) Singapore Flyer Ferris wheel. Go to the viewing platform of the Tiger Sky Tower. Walk the Skybridge on the 50th story of the Pinnacle@Duxton residential complex. Watch passing ships on Singapore River from the Helix Bridge.

Singapore is located just off the southern tip of Malaysia and is connected to the mainland by a causeway. Fly into Changi International Airport or come by road or rail from Malaysian destinations. Singapore has an extensive, efficient and affordable public transportation network that covers most of the major sights. Alternatively, get around by taxi, bicycle or rental car. Come for the fun, shops, food and culture.
