A Tourist Guide to Singapore – A City State with a Myriad of Cultures and Attractions

Predominantly known by many as a financial capital of the world, the state of Singapore is compact yet packed with attractions and landmarks that contradict this reputation, making it a wonderful destination for a weekend getaway. Whether it is adventure and excitement one seeks or relaxation and retail therapy, the capital city of Singapore certainly delivers.

The centre of the city is home to a number of districts, each famous for a different activity or attraction. For instance, Orchard Road is the go-to place for tourists intending to indulge in retail therapy. For guests for whom this is a priority, a hotel near Orchard Road should be booked to access the shopping streets with ease. In this case, hotels such as The St. Regis Singapore will scarcely disappoint. Another district is the Civic District, also known as Riverside that was formerly well known for its colonised nature, whereas now, it is home to numerous museums, theatres as well as restaurants. Tourists mostly find the Marina Bay district intriguing. Given that it is one of the newest additions to the city complete with the Marina Bay Gardens and the Marina Bay Sands, attractions such as the giant Super Trees are greatly sought after by visitors to the city.

For those who wish to witness the country from a cultural and ethnic perspective, Chinatown and Little India are interesting places to visit. Intriguingly, the former is also home to the largest gay enclave in the country. Some visit Singapore with the primary objective of making a visit to Sentosa Island. The isle was named for peace and tranquillity, but is presently home to exhilarating rides, an oceanarium and parks that seek to provide their patrons with an unforgettable theme park experience. Singapore is truly both an explosion of cultures and ethnicities and an interesting place to visit.
