Singapore an Island city-state off Southern Malaysia is a global financial center with a tropical climate and multicultural population. In circa-1820 Chinatown stands the red-and-gold Buddha’s Tooth Relic Temple, Little India offers colorful souvenirs and Arab Street is lined with fabric shops. Singapore is also known for eclectic street fare, served in hawker centers such as Tiong Bahru and Maxwell Road.
Singapore is one of the great cities of the world, with its blend of Asian and European cultures. Graceful colonial buildings co-exist alongside centuries-old street markets and modern high-rises. Though the government can be strict with residents and visitors who misbehave, travelers who follow the rules can’t help but be fascinated by this multi-cultural city.
Choosing the 10 best attractions in Singapore was no easy task, this is a city bursting to the seams with impressive things to see and do. Almost everyone will have seen an image of The City’s Symbol, The Merlion, and this makes our list alongside the nearby Marina Bay Sands Sky Park and Singapore Flyer–both of which offer breathtaking views across the iconic Singapore skyline.
This tiny Island state is also a land of contrasts; Chinatown and Little India, both gastronomic and shopping hubs in their own right, represent the incredible ethnic diversity of the country.
