Singapore is a city of contrasts – from lofty skyscrapers to tropical jungle, from high-end restaurants to street stalls, from couture boutiques to fast fashion.

Singapore is proud of its nature and presentation of excellent natural spaces. For the best of the best visit Singapore Botanic Gardens, Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, and Singapore Zoo. Pulau Ubin is the perfect island for a day trip. Take a little boat over, grab a bike (there’s no motorised transport) and cruise around the island. Explore the Mountain Bike Park, fishing villages, and cute beaches.

Little India and Kampong Glam are the Islamic areas of the city, where the frenzied pace is exhilarating and smells of fragrant spices fill the air. The street food is not to be missed. This is also the hipster neighbourhood where you’ll find your new favourite bar.

Chinatown and the CBD is the place to head for shopping and for temples. Learn about Singapore’s history at the Chinatown Heritage Centre, visit Sri Mariamman Hindu temple and Thian Hock Keng temple, then head up to the 50th floor of [email protected] housing complex for sweeping panoramas over the city.
