Skyscrapers and super-malls
Singapore transports you to one of South East Asia’s most exciting cities, home to staggering skyscrapers, world class shopping and exotic gardens. There is something for everyone here, with families, couples and adventurers taking to the skies in the Singapore Flyer and the SkyPark Observation Deck for spectacular views of the city. Wander through the bustling markets and pick out a holiday souvenir before heading to Orchard Road, the Bond Street of Singapore, which is home to swanky malls lined with designer boutiques. For a souvenir with a difference, check out the stalls of rainbow bright lanterns and clothing in Little India.
A feast of international cuisine awaits you in Singapore, with influences from India, Malaysia and China creating a mouth watering fusion of flavours. Sample the authentic cuisine at Hawker centres where food halls full of stalls feature unique specialities, including spicy noodle soups and fish head curries.
