"There isn't anywhere else on Earth where people confluence - like the way they do in Singapore. From visitors and transients to citizens, this progressive island and gateway to South-East Asia is a dynamic mix of cultures, ideas and histories neither ethnic nor exotic, instead, the essence of modern Asia - sparklingly savvy, with a touch of old school. The first-time visitor should expect to be surprised, confused and charmed." Anita Kapoor, TV and Travel Host.

The world's only island city-state is indeed very modern and yet has a rich history - you can get the best of all worlds in the space of one visit. Eat, drink, shop, party, lie on the beach, converse with nature, take in some adventure sports - whatever you'd like to do on a vacation, or cross off your bucket-list for that matter - you can do it all in Singapore.
