Singapore Tourist Attractions You Must Visit

There are certain places in specific countries that define them. Some come easily to mind, with the Eiffel Tower in Paris or the Le Arch De Triumph in the same country. The Egyptians have the pyramids or the famous gold markets and Italy has their museums, the Vatican and of course the ever famous leaning tower. Singapore is no different from this and there are many Singapore tourist attractions that you must visit, packed into a small island nation. It is amazing in itself that Singapore, with its diminutive size has been able to pack in so much culture, tradition and entertainment every where a visitor turns and here is a quick overview of the Singapore tourist attractions you must visit.

I think one of the main attractions is the food of Singapore, something everyone must taste before they depart the country. Local delights are a source of pride for every Singaporean because they carry with it that special touch and flavour that make them unique to this island nation. Tourists should always visit areas like Little India, Chinatown and Arab Street to taste some of the best local delights that Singapore has to offer. Not only do can they recognise the different ethnic enclaves and slices of our multinational and multicultural society. Enjoy true local Chinese delights in any of the coffee shops and shop houses that pepper these locations – at the same time enjoy the rich sights and sounds of these places over a steaming cup of a local favourite. There is nothing like immersing oneself in a sensory experience, smell, touch, taste – all while viewing the rich tapestry of culture draped all around – from preserved old architecture to colloquial slangs.

You have not experienced Singapore without experiencing some of the more famous talk abouts among the visitor circles. Dont forget to visit the Central Business District and be amazed by the sight of the tall skyscrapers touching the clouds in an arrangement that has graced post cards and brochures all over the world. Be awed by the Esplanade and its titillating architectural design. Relax by the Singapore River, party in Asia’s first floating event platform and soar above all your expectation with the Singapore Flyer – larger than the London Eye by a long shot – giving you a great view of the island.

Recommended Visitor Attractions In The Beautiful Town Of Scarborough

The towns of Whitby and Scarborough, on the North Yorkshire Coast, are unique in their own ways, but both of them provide tourists with an exceptional choice of attractions to keep people of all ages entertained. Rent a holiday cottage in Whitby or Scarborough and you will have a good base from which you can discover all that this wonderful area has to offer. Dealing just with Scarborough, in this article, we suggest the following tourist attractions.

Scarborough

Scarborough is a typical British seaside resort and of course that means a good choice of amusement arcades along with the family friendly Luna Park Fun Fair. The fair is sited right next to the harbour and has a lovely atmosphere. Even though it is only small there is a good selection of rides including a ferris wheel, dodgems and a helter skelter. The fair is primarily aimed at families with young kids.

Peasholm Park in Scarborough is also very popular with families. It is a much loved park and there are several things to do. There is a lake and in the summer months it is possible to hire boats and enjoy the simple delight of boating -choose between conventional rowing boats, canoes or pedaloes with dragon heads! Free concerts frequently take place at the bandstand throughout the summer months. There are also two cafes in the park. The park is an excellent spot for a summer picnic! The North Bay Railway, which has operated since 1931, runs from Peasholm Park to Scalby Mills. It is thought of as the most historic miniature railway in the country.

Cape Town's V&A Waterfront (http://www.hotelsbreak.com)

The lure of Cape Town lies in its spectacular setting and the beauty of its natural environment, as well as the rich cultural diversity of its people.

It has had a long and turbulent history and the effects of Apartheid still linger in the minds and hearts of the people. Transformation however has led to a feeling of hope in this new ‘Rainbow Nation’, which can be experienced in the cosmopolitan city centre of Cape Town.
