Things to see in Singapore

Singapore is a city state and one of the most developed in South-East Asia. The city is remarkably clean and organized and probably one of the safest in the world. This is not just a statistic but there is a friendly feeling that surrounds this city. Despite the high population density there are many green spaces and the city does not feel crowded. 

For a cultural view on Singapore head to the tourist attractions in little India or Chinatown. In little India there are several Hindu temples with have been nicely decorated. The area is a bit out of town but is situated in an area with nice colonial houses. Chinatown is located near the city center and is made up of several Chinese shops and a few smaller temples. The largest of them all is the Buddha tooth relic temple which is unmistakably Chinese and forms the heart of Chinatown. This is a pleasant part to walk around.

Another attractive and must see part of Singapore is the business district. This is made up of modern skyscrapers and has a well designed skyline. Especially from the riverfront there are amazing views. Near the Fullterton hotel is the Merlion lion located which is the symbol of the city. In the evening there is a light show from the Marina Bay Sands casino which is best seen from here. The best view of the skyline can be seen by crossing the esplanade bridge and walk towards the casino.
Singapore is also known as the kitchen of Asia with many little places to eat. Along Clarke Quay there are many places to get a drink or something to eat.

Because it is a city state there are fewer options for day trips. However, for those who want to get out of Singapore the best option is to visit Sentosa island which is all about entertainment and relaxing and spent some time at its beautiful beaches. 

Singapore is a transport hub for Asia and as a result it is connected to most major destinations in the whole region with many low cost flights available. Getting around the city is easy as it has an efficient metro network which is quick and reliable called the mass rapid transit (MRT). This takes you to most places in little time. Around the city center you can just walk as traffic is relatively low and not as noisy as in other big cities. The city is also pedestrian friendly as many facilities such as pedestrian bridges and tunnels have been built. Because of its location close to the equator the weather is hot throughout the whole year and can be visited all year round .
