Clean, shopping, multicultural, food is what you can find during your holiday trip to Singapore. As Singapore main language is English, it is not hard even for the one who is travelling alone to get around. In addition, Singapore is a good choice of holiday destination for those who are on budget and searching for a nice holiday place; many hotel deals, cheap hotel, discount hotel,affordable taxi, affordable attraction and last but not least is a lot affordable and delicious food.
Just one thing that is very important to keep in mind while travelling to Singapore; that is to keep and stay clean! Littering of any sort is an offence in Singapore and you can get a big fine on that.

Singapore is a multicultural country, dominant by 3 racial groups (Chinese, Malays and Indians). Visit Chinatown, Little India and Arab Street to discover the most about the culture that surround Singapore. Singapore is so multicultural that you might be surprised to find one of Singapore’s oldest Hindu temple and mosque in Chinatown.  While you are in Chinatown, enjoy the trishaw tour of Chinatown. And if you are spice lover, sari lover or authentic india’s jewelry, you have to visit Little India.

Singapore is a best destination for family holiday too! Singapore zoo is one of the famous zoo in the world. While you are in Singapore, have a unique experience visiting the magic of the zoo at night time and you and your family ought to visit Sentosa ( the underwater world). Be amazed!

 

In addition to the zoo and underwater world, the newest attraction in Singapore is Universal Studio. Universal Studio in Singapore is the 1st and only Universal Studio theme park in Singapore.

Not like other country in Southeast asia, you can get around Singapore easily by MRT. MRT is express train that goes basically everywhere. It is convenient and not expensive.

If you love shopping, you can find most of the world famous brand such as Louis Vuitton, Dunhil, Gucci etc in Singapore’s shopping district; Orchard road. In Orchard Road you can find ranges of clothing from cheap yet fashionable clothing to expensive and branded clothing. There are bargains also to be found in electronics, ranges of arts and unique goods.

For food lover, when you are in Singapore, you ought to try Singapore multicultural food. Char kway teow, Chicken rice, fish head curry, Singapore Chilli crab, oyster omellete etc, you can find it in most of the “hawker” center. As the food portion is not big and not expensive, you can taste different food and have a food experience in Singapore.
Other than the new Universal Studio attraction in Singapore, Marina Bay Sands Hotel Singapore adds to the list of newest Singapore attraction. Search for discount hotel for Marina Bay Sands Hotel in your holiday to Singapore.

10 Things for Holidays in Singapore

The no-nonsense quick guide for visitors wanting to see and understand Singapore. Top Ten Things to do in Singapore

I have always wanted to compile a “Top Ten Things to do in Singapore” list. So here goes…This list is meant to be a first-stop no-nonsense quick guide for visitors wanting to see and understand Singapore.

A subjective list, from someone who is very familiar with Singapore tour:

Ranked #1: Eat chicken rice

You may or may not have heard of the Singapore chicken rice. In anycase, please, just go try it at least once. It’s available almost anywhere on the island. The good part is, you are not likely to regret it.

Ranked #2: Visit Night Safari

I have been to zoos/ theme parks around the world and have not seen anything like this. Watching animals at night with your family/ loved once makes the experience one of its kind.

Ranked #3: Take a picture with the Merlion statue at the Marina Bay

Taking a photo with the Merlion statue is of course a “touristy” thing to do. But doing that brings you to an important part of the island that tells the history of Singapore – the Marina Bay. The bay is still changing and growing: skyscrapers contrasting with the colonial buildings, decorated with interesting structures like the Esplanade Theaters and the Marina Bay Sands.

Ranked #4: Check out the Renowned Public Housing: HDB Flats

Tell the cab driver to bring you on a mini-road trip to the relatively older housing projects in places like Bedok, Tampines and Clementi.

Ranked #5: Visit Little India

Make this trip to Serangoon area. You are likely to enjoy this.

Ranked #6: Visit Universal Studios

Singapore/ Resorts World Sentosa
Universal Studios Singapore/ Resorts World Sentosa is a much-talked-about new addition to Singapore. Although the Universal Studios is much smaller than the ones I have been to, I had great fun with my family holidays.

Ranked #7: Visit the Asian Civilisation Museum

I must say that among all the museums in Singapore, this is my favourite. It offers quite a unique perspective to Asian cultures.

Ranked #8: Eat at a Hawker Centre

A big part of Singapore culture is food. When you are tired of the restaurants in the malls, check out one of the hawker centres. They can be found at many parts of Singapore.

Ranked #9: Shop on Orchard Road

I must admit that this is another one of the “touristy” things that some experienced travellers might avoid. But Orchard Road today is quite different from what it was some years ago. Worth checking it out!

Ranked #10: Eat Chili Crab

Clearly I have included another food item. I must have forgotten. I cannot emphasize enough. Food is a big part of Singapore culture!

That’s all, folks! Hope this list was helpful. Please do give me your comments! Thanks!
