Waterfalls and wonderful foliage and tropical flowers creat a world class zoo in an exotic environment. Haw Par Villa, a fabulous theme park with a mythical theme is an interesting excursion for you.


A great historical day out, to get some real idea of the heritage, has to be a tour to Mallaca which has the oldest Chinese temple, Cheng Hoon Teng Temple. It has a mystical charm and some of the surrounding buildings are very picturesque and typical of the area. With many museums, zoos and architecture, there is plenty to do in Singapore; venture into China town and Little India with its colourful charm and religious monuments dotted around the area for a start.

The city also offers a hop on hop off bus at a very reasonable price, where you can get around the city on your own without missing the hotspots.



There is enough nightlife to suit most tourists' taste, like having a rickshaw ride, which is one of the popular means of transport in the busy streets. Viewing the town by night is quite impressive, so definitely do this and then stop off at the theatre and see a fabulous show, or perhaps take in a movie. For those looking for a buzz, then the dazzling nightclubs in the city play the latest tunes and are perfect for nightlife. The area is teaming with pubs and clubs. If you like a little jazz then there are clubs with live music, not forgetting the premier clubs where the business men and women of the city let their hair down. Some of the clubs are quite expensive and so are the imported alcohols, so budget for this.

A night safari with the family is the best way to see the rare and endangered nocturnal species, as well as Hyena and among others, the Rhinoceros.
