TraveLibro Singapore

Singapore journeyed from being a chaotic port to an epitome of exotic consumerism. Defying the common belief of it being boring and soulless, Singapore of today is a fine medley of modernism and traditional cultures and street life.

The Chinese, Malay, Indian and Western influenced food ranges from brilliances of street food and hawkers to high-end exotic and international dining. Don't miss out on the lip-smacking Asian delights. Singapore also attracts the tourists who want to splurge and the Orchard Street is one of the fine examples of where to. Check out the Marina Bay Sands one of the finest hotels, the classic Merlion Statue and rolling highs of Singapore flyer. Then of course there's walking, cycling and water sports and cruises. And when you've had enough of the materialism, turn to: Clarke Quay, the festival village, the Singapore Zoo sans the cages, Pulau Ubin with its pristine shores, Singapore Botanic Garden with its themed gardens, the famed Sentosa Island and more. For a taste of religion and art, Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple and pre-war terrace house- Baba House are just a couple of examples. So when you're ready to take that let-loose, go-all-out-break, let the Utopian Lion City take over!

TraveLibro provides an exhaustive travel guide for Singapore featuring popular attractions, tours, best places to visit, where to go, tourist information, and itineraries.
