This report describes the lifestyle in Singapore. This report can be used as a travel guide for your next trip to Singapore. Singapore is located in South East Asia, just below Malaysia and to the west of Indonesia. It is a small island with approximately 5 million people. It is extremely tropical and hot, with temperatures constantly above 30C. Although it rains only about once per day, for approximately half an hour, there are times when it is very heavy. Most of the population is Chinese, who arrived in Singapore in the 1800s to work at the new port. While most of the population speaks mandarin, English is taught to all citizens in Singapore. English also includes mandarin and Malay. The Malays, Indians, and Caucasians are the other three population groups. These groups all have their own culture and religions, but Singapore is proud of its diversity and everyone seems to get along well. Singapore is a safe and clean place to live. This is why I love living here. The streets look great and are clean. Many of them are also surrounded by lush trees and plants.
Singapore is the ideal place to explore the diverse cultures. It's the perfect place to visit if you want to experience Asia but also like the luxury of living in a clean, safe city with many English-speaking people and great shopping. Even though Singapore is a modern city, there are still many places where you can experience the Asian culture.
Visit these places
Arab street: This is the traditional Malay neighborhood. Here you will find the mosque and many charming streets filled with small shops.
Little India: You will feel like you are in India as soon as you enter this area.
Chinatown is a great place to visit. It has beautiful antique shops, temples, and many old shophouses.
Raffles Hotel: This place was a refuge for European colonials. It is now a beautiful place to visit the museum, browse through shops, or have a drink at one of the bars.
Nightlife is a great place to be
Singapore has a reputation for being boring. However, the city is trying to change this perception. Two casinos are currently being constructed and the formula 1 race is held here once a calendar year. There are many good restaurants and cafes here. It's so nice to be outside in the evening, with no clothes on, when it is so warm and cozy, and take a seat on one of the many terraces.
Places you like:
Clarke quay is a place where you can feel that Singapore isn't a very happening city. This is a lively area of town that boasts many bars, restaurants and nightclubs. The 1NiteStand comedy club is a favorite of mine. They have great stand-up comedy as well as life bands.
Clarke Quay is my preferred place, but it's still fun and exciting and a popular spot for tourists and expats.
Dampsey Hill was once the location of British Army barracks. However, it is now a trendy area filled with specialty shops and restaurants.
Holland Village: A fun, casual place to meet for drinks, coffee, or to visit one of the many restaurants.
Raffles Hotel Long Bar: Traditionally THE place to go for a Singapore Sling.
Hawker centres: If you are looking for a cheap way to eat Singaporean food, there are many hawker centers.
Take beautiful walks in the natural world
Singapore is one of the most beautiful and green cities in the world. You can take a walk and find new trees and plants at many locations. These are my top picks:
Singapore botanical gardens: Beautiful big park with amazing gardens
Bukit Timah nature reserve: For those who want to walk in the jungle or take a more difficult route
McRitchie nature reserve offers many peaceful and beautiful walks. You can also take the Tree Top Walk, which offers a unique view of Singapore's trees.
Singapore Zoo is a wonderful place to take a nature walk. The grounds of the zoo are lush and you'll be able to see some incredible animals as you go.
There are many activities for kids
Singapore offers many exciting activities for children.
Forest adventure: A fun and challenging course through trees and water. This is a great activity for children!
Sentosa Island has too many activities. You can try the luge, butterfly gardens, laser show, trapeze and underwater world. This is the ideal place to stay if you're traveling with children.
Zoo and Night Safari: I think Singapore's zoo has the best, if not the greatest, zoo. You can choose to go to either night safari or zoo. They are both amazing so it will be difficult to decide.
Complexes Wet and Wild, Jurong Swimming Pool: Fun places to swim with lazy rivers or slides
Jacob Ballas' children's garden is located in the botanical gardens. It offers water, cubby houses and slides for the kids, as well as shade for parents to relax and chat. Children love to feed the many ducks and fish at the botanical gardens.
East Coast Park: This park is right by the ocean, but you shouldn't expect to swim a lot. Many people visit this park for walking, riding, and cycling, but there are many other activities such as a fair, watersports or sailing.
Singapore is known for its shopping, which is their favorite pastime. I doubt I'll ever have the chance to see all of the malls in Singapore. These are some of my favorites:
Orchard Road is the most well-known shopping street in Singapore. Takashimaya is a huge Japanese superstore located in Ngee Ann City. Here you will find many major brands, as well as the excellent book store Kinokuniya. Walking distance from Ngee Ann City is approximately 3.5 km to Wisma Atria, where you will find a wide range of shops. Paragon, which is located opposite Ngee Ann City, also has a variety of shops. Vivo City, Singapore's newest mall, is another favorite. It is located close to Sentosa.
Queensway Shopping Centre is the best place to shop for sports shoes and other articles. My personal favourite, as many of my friends in sport will know, is The Velocity Sports Mall in Novena square. Here you can find great deals on Adidas clothing.
Electronics and computers: There are many electronics and computers available at Sim Lim Square. Funan DigitaLife Mall is another good option, although it's a bit more messy. Lucky Plaza is a great place to bargain for electronics on Orchard Road.
Singaporean: For Chinese products, go to the Yue Hwa shop. Arab street sells baskets, textiles, and dry goods. You can purchase gold, (Muslim), food, and clothing at the Tekka Centre.
Children: Although the Forum shopping center is primarily geared towards children, it can be very costly.
Singapore is close
Singapore's location is one of the best things about living here. You can visit many other places nearby and take advantage of this as a visitor. You are just a short drive from Thailand, Malaysia (Bali), and Indonesia (Bali). If you want to travel to Singapore, but also enjoy relaxing days on a beach in one of these countries, you can combine it with a tropical island. Bintan Island, a small island in Indonesia, is the closest to Singapore. You can reach Singapore in 40 minutes by ferry.
