Singapore, located on the south west corner of Asia, is considered to be one of the cleanest places in the world. At one time it was considered to be on the brink of destruction and environmental chaos. This all changed when the people took things into their own hands and today, this place is as clean as a piece of heaven. However, just because it is small does not mean that Singapore cannot offer you things when it comes to having fun. Singapore has a lot to offer to you and here's what should do to get the true essence of the place. Get yourself some airline tickets for cheap, and fly to Singapore today.
1. Visit the Botanic Gardens
Singapore is home to some of the most amazing gardens and houses a wide array of plants that you probably won't find anywhere else. Take a trip to these amazing gardens and see the lush plant life of Singapore. The best part is that most of the Botanic Gardens are open for public view throughout the day (starting as early as 5AM and closing as late as midnight). How amazing is that, right?
2. Visit the colorful streets of Tiong Bahru Housing Estate
This is the newest and coolest neighborhood in Singapore and has a lot to offer to anyone who loves wandering around on the streets. You get to see the cool houses, the amazing restaurants and the bars that offer some of the most amazing food that you'll eat on this side of the continent. The thing about this place is that even though it is new it is actually a restored version of the previous buildings that already existed. So you get to have a view of the perfect combination of old and new when you go here.
3. Enter the Chinese Folklore at the Haw Par Villa
This villa built in 1973 is everything traditional and Chinese. Going here you'll hear so many different legends and stories and will be amazed at how they all differ from each other. One more thing that you'll find here is the Chinese depiction of the 10 courts of hell which are often too much to take for people with a light heart. However aside from all of this, the theme park here offers you a chance to gaze at a collection of more than 1000 statues of Chinese origins and legends.
4. Go for shopping in the Orchard Road
Think of this place as the Times Square of Singapore. This is the best place where you can shop at economical rates. With the 22 malls and several other shops present here you can get literally anything you want from here.
