Travel to Singapore - ultra modern Asia

For many travellers going through Asia, Singapore will be a natural stopover along the way. From here, there are numerous connections to other places in Asia, as well as Oceania, USA, Africa and Europe. As one of Asia's richest and most modern cities, Singapore is known for its strong economy, rapid development, and innovative technology. To many, Singapore is a possible stop during a longer journey, and we recommend spending a few days or more in this metropole if you get the opportunity. 

What to see in Singapore

For shopping, the essential area would be Orchard Road, where many modern malls and shops are lined up. Cheap electronics can be found everywhere but beware of copies – double check your products and aim for the bigger warehouses. On the other hand, a day on Sentosa Island gives you plenty of options to explore the zoo, the beaches, a war fortress/museum (Fort Siloso), and more. We also recommend that you spend some time walking around the city centre, China Town, and Little India, both during the day and night. There are plenty of cosy restaurants, local markets, shops, and parks to check out.

How to get around in Singapore

The easiest and most efficient way to get around the city is by using MRT, Singapore's modern subway system. Frequent departures, a large network, and prompt trains make this the number one transportation method. Taxis can be found everywhere, but keep in mind that they are almost impossible to catch during peak hours or heavy rain. Additionally, several ferries operate between the mainland and the islands. You can reach Malaysia both by train or bus, and you can get to exotic places like Tioman Island by boat.

Food in Singapore

In Singapore, you'll find all types of Asian and international cuisines. For the most authentic food experiences, however, you should go where the locals are found – and remember, the more locals, the better the food! For some local specialties, we recommend that you try chili crab, laksa (noodle soup with coconut, egg, shrimps and cockles) and rojak (stir-fried fruit and vegetables mixed with shrimp paste and peanuts).
