Singapore is like a miniature version of Asia. The island has skyscrapers, historical buildings, rainforest and sandy beaches. The fascinating mixture of Chinese, Indian and Malaysian culture is visible everywhere in Singapore, from the narrow streets of Chinatown and Little India to the mosques and temples. The cuisine that combines the flavours of three countries and the international gourmet restaurants have earned Singapore a reputation as the culinary capital of Asia.
The malls of Orchard Road and Suntec City are a considered a legend by shoppers and the Singapore Sling at the Raffles hotel, built in colonial times, is as good as it was a hundred years ago. The Singapore Zoo night safari, the Jurong Bird Park and the Underwater World aquarium are exhilarating places to visit for both adults and children. The riverside pubs on the Boat Quay, the Robertson Quay and the Clarke Quay are an excellent place to start off an evening, and from here you can continue to the world-famous Zouk nightclub.
