About Singapore

Including tips for the best time to visit Singapore

Singapore is an island city-state that packs a ton of culture within its tiny borders. Malay, Chinese, Indian, and Arab communities have all left their mark on the city, each bringing their distinct flavors into the mix.

Singapore's fusion of cultures is fascinating whether it's your first visit or fifteenth. In just one day you can go sourvenir shopping in Chinatown, take a moment to meditate at the four-storey Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, check out all the statues covering Little India’s Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple, and stop to have a mint tea in the Arabic quarter.

Or if you prefere to take it slow, dedicate a full day to each neighborhood. Kampong Glam’s maze of bazaars, flea markets, and teahouses shouldn’t be rushed, and Orchard Road is a luxury mall perfect for a patient stroll.

Singapore is on the frontline in the fight against climate change, and the Gardens by the Bay are living proof. This enormous huge area of reclaimed land near the Marina has unique green spaces, and their "supertrees" and "cloud forests" demonstrate how cities even as densely populated as Singapore can be sustainable.

With over 100 airlines serving Changi Airport, traveling to Singapore is straightforward. Plus the year-round warm weather means anytime is the best time to visit.

If you are in transit status for many hours, staying at the aero hotel is a lot more comfortable then the transit area. With good food options. As a fully covid vaccinated American, we were not allowed to leave the transit area & were go forced to wear green ribbons around our wrists for transit ID. We were not allowed to explore the airport or singapore

February 20, 2018

Extremely clean and friendly, English well-spoken, no risk even for a single - female - traveller to be outside the streets on her own. For a European Flower Dome can be a disappointment and also the Zoo was not as fancy as expected. I liked the streets, the warm evenings, Sentosa beach, the wide choice of foods, smells and tastes, green everywhere, great and cheap transportation, my Hotel (Parkroyal on Beach Road - highly recommended)...

1. Porcelain Hotel was a nasty experience.

June 17, 2017

1. Porcelain Hotel was a nasty experience. The room was atrociously small without space to put our luggages and other stuffs. There's no cupboard to hang our clothes. The cleaner couldn't make our bed because of one of our luggage that had to sleep with us because of the lack of space. 2. Marina Bay was our favourite place and Chinatown was great. 3. We ate around Chinatown and Clarke Quay. 4. The MRT is easy to navigate and cheap. 5. Avoid hotels like and especially Porcelain Hotel. They did not let us know prior of our complaint and disquiet.

A lovely and nice country that had a lot of charming places, highly developped and luxurous lifestyle complemented with the latest technology which made our short break comfortable and unforgettable. Japanese rest at Hotel Pan pacific is a great place for lunch and the hotel poolside is also a place to be.

Katong square is very nice place, full of bars and shops.

March 8, 2017

Katong square is very nice place, full of bars and shops. Indigo hotel is a unique place to stay as well. Gardens by the Bay are beautiful. I strongly recommend to visit them. Everything is so close. Prices are reasonable to the level of services but be prepared for a more expensive beer or alcohol in general. Chinatown is a good place to save money for souvenirs.
