Ever wonder what pre-modern Singapore looked like? Take a stroll through the ethnics enclaves, designated in the original city plan drawn up by Sir Stamford Raffles back in 1819. These precincts were meant to segregate the Chinese, Malays and Indians into their own communities. Today, these place retain their old charm, though most of which have been spruced up to cater to tourists.
No trip to Singapore is complete without visiting the famous places of interest such as the award-winning zoo and night safari, or the Singapore Flyer, the world’s tallest wheel observatory.
Last but not least, while in Singapore, it is an absolute must to indulge in food tasting and shopping. Numerous cultures give rise to an endless variety of food, especially at hawker centres.
