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.

Very nice city!

June 27, 2022

Very nice city! The climate is very warm. But after an hour you´ll get used to it. There are nice gardens and the food is really good! The public transport is amazing. But If you are a architect lover like I am, the city has not much to offer. I think 4 or 5 days is more than enough to see the city.

Everything was nice and good.

Everything was nice and good. We enjoyed Universal studios, Shows as the Marina bay , our city walks and visit to the gardens by the bay. Shopping was another favorite with most malls having sale. The ease with which we could use cabs, public transport was amazing. Very easy 2 reach anywhere. Haji lane visit was lovely with excellent weather.

We always feel safe when travelling to Singapore.

June 26, 2022

We always feel safe when travelling to Singapore. This time it was a stopover on the way home to recharge the batteries before going back to work. We had a great time visiting some of the tourist spots, Marina Bay, Gardens by the Bay, Merlion Park and local shopping areas. It was easy to get around by walking from our hotel or taxi (we didn't use the train this time).

June 24, 2022

I've been many times now and for me it's about the food, history, bike riding, some shopping but that is last on the list, can be a bit crowded at times but you can find peace in many of the parks dotted across the island. Public transport is excellent and easy to use. Just get your comfy walking shoes on and go for a walk around the older parts of the sitting and take it all in, plenty of cafes or even vending machines if you need to cool off.

June 23, 2022

There are some places with actual good food. Honestly, I could come back just to repeat that. Average trip per station would cost below 1$. If you're a tourist, please head to the nearest MRT and get yourself an EZ-Link card instead of a Visitor's pass. The card can be used within 5 years, if you decide to come back soon. This country requires a lot of walking, and it helps a lot if you want to stretch your legs and have a meaningful exercise. Be sure to visit all the attractions Singapore can offer!

June 19, 2022

Singapore is a country that couples with young kids will enjoy... good side walks, good parks, such a variety of international and local food to choose... It is a dog-friendly country and overall, people are nice but there are many older folks. The services of the government ministries, most restaurants, are all good so far... the MRT there is good but be prepared for queues in certain places.
