Singapore, also known as the Lion City, is situated off Malaysia’s southern coast.
While it is one of the most expensive countries in the world, you can still enjoy Singapore even if you are travelling on a tight budget.
When you visit Singapore, one of the interesting things you will notice is that it combines various Asian cultures—you will find a Chinatown, Little India and many other cultural influences.
Despite being a small country, there are a lot of things to do here. First on your list should be the Gardens by the Bay where you can see the largest greenhouse in the world, giant supertrees and the largest indoor waterfall in the world. You can also explore the rich history of Singapore and take a look at Asian art and culture in the Asian Civilizations Museum. Here, you will even see an exhibit of the Tang Shipwreck.
Another natural wonder is the Singapore Botanic Gardens, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a truly impressive garden complex that spans 60 acres of different plants.
As mentioned earlier, Singapore offers a combination of different Asian ethnicities. So, when you travel to this country, you might also want to visit the Chinese Heritage Centre and the Sultan Mosque in the Arab Quarter.
If you are not afraid of heights, another attraction that you should visit is the Singapore Flyer, which is a famous Ferris wheel where you can get a breathtaking panoramic view of the city. While riding the Singapore Flyer, you will also be able to see Indonesia and Malaysia.
When it comes to Singaporean cuisine, the foods are flavoursome and varied. Some of the dishes that you should try include Hainanese Chicken Rice, Laksa, Char KwayTeow, BakChorMee and Kaya Toast.
