What to do in Singapore

Singapore is a place of breathless modern superlatives—world’s highest infinity pool, tallest Ferris wheel, easiest place to do business—but its hyperkinetic ambition has happily not steamrolled its heritage. The old shop houses of Chinatown and the godowns of riverfront Clarke Quay conjure up ghosts of Singapore past. Historic utilitarian buildings have morphed into modern upscale shops and restaurants. Hawkers were swept off the streets into hawker centers, where they continue to create some of the city’s best cuisine—think Hainan chicken rice and chili crab—on mere double burners. Ethnic neighborhoods like Kampong Glam and Little India have been spruced up and promoted as tourist attractions to honor their Malay and Indian populations. The British have been and gone, but their churches and government buildings remain.

Traveler Reviews of Singapore

Megan rates Singapore
Singapore is the most modern city you will find in Southeast Asia. It is a very clean city and worth a visit. The prices are much higher than the other countries in the area but that comes with the additional comforts. IT is easily to get around within the city as well to travel to other countries.
