Holidays to Singapore

Singapore is extremely busy and there is a wealth of things to do during your stay on Singapore holidays. Because there is such a mix of culture, the cuisine is extremely diverse: visit Arab St. for Arabian food, the Chinatown district for Chinese foods, Little India for its exotic spices, and finally the East Coast for its renowned seafood. Be sure to try the chilli and black pepper crab, which is famous within the city state.

Many holidays in Singapore focus on shopping, as the region is well-known for its large collection of malls. Orchard Road is the primary site with malls stretching quite literally for miles, along with beautiful spas and cinemas. Even if you have come to Singapore for other reasons, it would be unwise to miss out on the shopping on this road. The Bugis district comes a close second, with slightly more traditional markets and shops available, as well as a large collection of eateries dotted around the district. Taking a Singapore holiday means you will not go hungry; excellent quality food is available almost everywhere.

It is also worth knowing that there are many museums and beautiful places of religious worship in the area; Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and even Baha’i faiths are represented throughout. No Singapore holiday is complete until you have visited the very surreal Burmese Buddhist Temple in Balestier or the sprawling Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery in Ang Mo Kio.

Once you are done shopping, Singapore’s mainly residential east coast has a number of parks and nature spots. Some of the state’s sole remaining stretches of mangrove trees are located there and host a number of incredible species of butterfly. There are three main beaches located in the Sentosa resort area. This used to be a large military base, but was converted to a resort in the style of Disneyland; it is extremely family-friendly and offers a lot of resort-style activities. Many families taking their holidays to Singapore will stay there, as well as people looking to get away from the bustle of the city. Pasir Ris comes highly recommended as a beautiful, yet quiet beach.

For those interested in nature, there are a few places to visit on holidays in Singapore. Along with the world-famous Singapore Zoo and Botanical Gardens, Bukit Timah Nature Reserve also offers a fantastic view of the indigenous wildlife. Alternatively, you can take a boat ride to Pulau Ubin, a small island to the east of the city state. Pulau Ubin is a rather wonderful throwback to rural Singapore before skyscrapers and tourism; it would be a great place to spend a day if only to appreciate how much the region has changed in recent years.

Finally, for fans of motor racing and Formula 1, the Singapore GP continues to impress the world; no other Grand Prix, bar Monaco, allows the public such close proximity to the cars.
