What's an island city without ultra-luxurious beach resorts? If you're looking for a great getaway less than an hour's drive from the city, then Sentosa is where you want to be. The resort island offers beach bars, sports facilities and golf courses, along with thrills and spills of the Universal Studios theme park and the Resorts Worlds Sentosa casino.
Resorts World Sentosa

Resorts World Sentosa provides extensive fun for the whole family in a fresh new way. This includes a 15,000 sq m casino, a massive selection of dining choices, luxury shops, a sophisticated spa and six themed hotels and, last but not least, Universal Studios Singapore.

Singapore Flyer

One of the newest additions to Singapore's list of attractions, the Singapore Flyer quickly became one of the city's most iconic landmarks. Climb on board the world's largest observation wheel for stunning views of the city skyline. Go just before sunset for the most romantic views.

One of Singapore's oldest ethnic districts, Chinatown still bustles with life much as it did years ago. A fine mix between the old and new, it continues to be a tourism hot spot. A visit to the Chinatown Heritage Centre is a good way to gain deeper insight into traditional Chinese life in this cultural treasure drove.
Little India

If you're looking for an authentic cultural experience, Little India is as good as it gets. It's the best place to discover the South Asian roots of Singapore's history. Be charmed by an array of colourful saris, fourtune-telling parrots, exotic Hindu temples, pungent incense and spices, and the latest Bollywood tunes amid a backdrop of historic shophouses.
Raffles Hotel

It's been around since the 19th century and remains very much a modern-day five-star hotel. The colonial-style Raffles Hotel does double duty as both an historic icon and a luxurious accommodation venue. Try out its award-winning cocktail, the world renowned Singapore Sling, or visit its in-house museum.
Orchard Road

Shopholics would love Orchard Road, the most important commercial thoroughfare in Singapore. Shopping malls line the entire road, offering brands that range from top-end labels to those for mass-market consumers. Visitors to Orchard Road can literally shop till they drop, as there is simply too much to see and buy!
Singapore Botanic Gardens

Be surrounded by over 3,000 species of tropical and subtropical plants at the heart of a bustling city. The Singapore Botanic Gardens offer a tranquil retreat to visitors and residents alike, a green lung amid a grey concrete jungle. Not surprisingly, joggers, tai chi practitioners and picnic-goers throng the grounds during weekends, so visit during the week to avoid the crowds. Do take the time, too, to check out Singapore's national flower at the National Orchard Gardens while you are there.
National Museum of Singapore

Rated one of the world's most interactive museums, the National Museum of Singapore is your one-stop guide to Singapore's history and cultural background.
Clarke Quay

Once a thriving commercial district lined with warehouses packed with exotic goods unloaded from tiny boats that plied the Singapore River, Clarke Quay remains an exciting place today, though it marches now to an entirely different beat. A cultural heritage area by day, it transforms into a happening place by night, as its clubs, bars and restaurants offer thrilling events all year round.
