The city-state of Singapore is a true marvel of the modern world: a highly urbanised, cosmopolitan economic powerhouse where skyscrapers and high-tech infrastructure blend seamlessly with an interesting cultural mix of Chinese, Malay and Indian influences.
Known as the Garden City due its extraordinary number of parks and urban greenery, Singapore is one of Asia’s most popular tourist destinations, welcoming in excess of 10 million international visitors each year.
Singapore might seem, at first glance, like an odd place to take children, but Singapore’s celebrated efficiency makes it remarkably easy to explore as a family. You will be amazed at the eclectic opportunities waiting to be discovered. Be awed by the beauty of the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, one of two urban rainforests worldwide, take a trip to Sentosa Island, with its luxurious resorts and theme parks dotted around the small tropical paradise, and by night, wander around the Gardens by the Bay on the suspended walkways and admire the enchanting music and lights show as you pass by the otherworldly Supertree Grove.
For the culturally-minded, Singapore is home to an impressive range of museums (such as the Asian Civilisation Museum), while the areas of Chinatown, Little India, and the Arab Quarter pay homage to the city's roots, and play host to some of the city's best cultural sights, events and cuisine.
