About Singapore

Singapore’s cultural and heritage trips showcase the old traditions which are still very much alive. Get a blast from the past by heading down to any of these ethnic enclaves: Chinatown, Kampong Glam, Arab Street and Little India. Each quarter unveils traditional arte facts, clothing, ethnic delicacies and other cultural treasures.

For starters, you could enjoy the Chinese antiques, traditional costumes or calligraphy of Chinatown, then have a whiff of assorted spices at Little India and purchase a sari or some jewellery for a loved one. Finally, hurry down to Kampong Glam and Arab Street for bazaar-style shopping and be intrigued by the exquisitely hand-made batiks from Indonesia and Malaysia – without ever leaving the country!

Marina Bay Sands Sky Park
The Sands SkyPark is an awe-inspiring engineering wonder. This unique structural masterpiece, designed by visionary architect Moshe Safdie, floats atop the three soaring Marina Bay Sands hotel towers 200m in the sky. With an impressive 12,400 square meters of space, the Sands SkyPark can host up to 3900 people. The gravity-defying cantilever is one of the largest of its kind in the world. From the observation deck, hundreds of visitors at a time can feast their eyes on the unforgettable panorama view of the Marina Bay area.ici
Resorts World™ Sentosa

Sentosa
One of the city’s livelier spots is undoubtedly Sentosa, a sun-kissed paradise in the tropics which has more than enough attractions and activities to delight everyone! You can learn about Singapore’s past at the heritage centre, enjoy the lush greenery at the nature park and explore the themed attractions, which are dotted all over this island.
Singapore Flyer
If it’s an unbeatable “rooftop” view of the Singapore skyline that you want, hop on board the Singapore Flyer, our very own observation wheel which stands at a staggering height of 165 metres. As the capsule you’re in ascends, you may even catch sight of our closest neighbours, Malaysia and Indonesia.
Singapore Zoo
Another sunny spot to head down to is the Singapore Zoo. If you’re early, you can catch breakfast with an orang utan, or lend your shoulder to an affectionate python. These are just a few encounters you’ll get at Singapore’s highly acclaimed 28-hectare “open” zoo which houses over 3,200 mammals, birds, reptiles and fishes.
Night Safari
If you’re an animal lover but can’t bear the heat of the midday sun, take a trip to Singapore’s Night Safari to enjoy wildlife under the moonlight. The night zoo is home to 900 over animals of 135 unusual species, and simulates tropical landscapes such as the African savannah, Nepalese river valley, Southeast Asian rainforest, South American pampas and Burmese jungle.
