A global trading centre of the highest calibre, this island city-state is a melting pot of different cultures, foods and ways of life.
Established as a trade colony of the British Empire at the beginning of the 19th century, Singapore has long outgrown its humble beginnings and is now one of the world's busiest and most captivating cities. A metropolitan and sophisticated atmosphere characterises the city but it also retains a sensitivity and respect for the many traditional cultures while its south-east Asian location gives it a very humid equatorial climate.
While the country is very densely populated, care has been taken with design, and almost half of the city-state's area is parklands. Relax at Singapore Botanic Gardens, or get away from the hustle and bustle at the beaches and seaside walks of the East Coast Park. Gardens by the Bay is packed with a riot of tropical plants filling its domes, and you won't miss its towering 'Supertrees'. Other green spaces well worth a visit are Jurong Bird Park and Singapore Zoo.
Another excellent choice for a quieter side of Singapore is the island of Pulau Ubin. You can take a “bumboat” out, and rent a bicycle at the small village to take you on track around the edge of the island to discover the wetlands and habitats rich in plant and animal life.
