Singapore

Singapore tour is very popular among Indian tourists. It is a small island, one of the most enjoyable cities in Southeast Asia. And as you stroll through the fashion emporiums of Orchard Road, poke around antique shops in Chinatown or take a walk around one of the dozens of beautiful city parks, you’ll know that it is a exotic place.

Combining the skyscrapers and subways of a modern, affluent city with a medley of Chinese, Malay and Indian influences and a tropical climate, with tasty food, good shopping and a vibrant night-life scene, this Garden City makes Singapore tour great. The attractions for Singapore tour are the city’s historic ethnic enclaves, particularly Little India, a couple of kilometres north of the Singapore river. Also Arab Street, dominated by the golden domes of the Sultan Mosque; South of the river, Chinatown, with a number of appealing shrines; an immaculately restored Chinese mansion, the Baba House; plus a heritage centre documenting the hardships experienced by generations of Chinese migrants in Singapore.

The area is compact enough so you can complete your Singapore tour in just a few days. There’s more fauna on show in the west of the island at the excellent Jurong Bird Park, while eastern Singapore is home to some sandy beaches. Singapore has a healthier balance between Westernized modernity and the city-state’s traditional cultures and street life.

It has more than enough appealing places to visit, from elegant temples to fragrant curative shops to grand colonial buildings. The city also rejoices in a hold of fine historical museums, plus a lively arts scene.

The centre of the city is located in the south – “downtown”, or just “town” to locals  — consisting roughly of the Orchard Road shopping area, the Riverside (the Singapore River, the creek), the new Marina Bay area and also the skyscraper-filled Shenton way financial district known, in acronym-loving Singapore, as the CBD (Central Business District).

  • Riverside (Civic District) — Singapore’s colonial core, with museums, statues and theatres, not to mention restaurants, bars and clubs. It’s undoubtedly the top place to unwind, lined with former warehouses that are now home to buzzing restaurants and bars.
  • Marina Bay — The newest part of Singapore, built on reclaimed land around a man-made reservoir into which the Singapore River now drains, dominated by the Marina Bay Sands integrated resort (hotel, casino, shopping mall, convention centre and museum) and the Marina Barrage.
  • Botanic Gardens – featuring a little bit of everything that makes Singapore such a verdant city, though most tourists make a beeline for the ravishing orchid section.
  • Sentosa — Among the many smaller islands and islets that lie within Singapore waters, once a military fort developed into a resort, Sentosa is the closest that Singapore gets to Disneyland, now with a dash of gambling and Universal Studios thrown in.Linked to the main island by causeway and cable car, it boasts several slick beach hotels.
