Destination Guide - Singapore
Arrive with the appetite of a ravenous animal in ‘The Lion City’ and you’ll feast like the king of the jungle. Start at Raffles and sip an iconic Singapore Sling over high tea, then make your way to one of the many restaurants serving up Singapore’s unofficial national dish, chilli crab. If all that heat leaves you parched, there’s no shortage of bars at Clarke Quay to quench your thirst. Of course, there are plenty of non-food related activities including: shopping on Orchard Road, a day trip to Sentosa Island and a night safari at the Singapore Zoo. After all that activity you might just find yourself hungry again…
Steamy Singapore is generally warm all year around. It can be wet from November to January. Temperatures remain at a consistent 30°C during the day almost all the time and it stays mild well into the evening.
Getting there and around
Singapore has an excellent network of transportation options. The bus system is effective, as is the subway network. There are plenty of taxis, too. For scenic travel, charter a boat and sail around the Singapore River. There are regular ferries and a free monorail to Sentosa Island.
