Singapore is a fusion of different cultures. In Chinatown, its cultural heart, there are numerous temples and ornate terraces. Little India is lined with colourful shops and is filled with the aroma of pungent spices. Meanwhile echoes of the British colonial past remain in architectural landmarks such as Parliament House and the Empress Place Building, now a lively arts centre. Shop till you drop in Orchard Road, bargain for batiks and silks in Arab Street, party the night away in the clubs of Mohamed Sultan Road and then eat chicken rice and chilli crab at Maxwell Road Market washed down with Tiger beer. Of course Singapore has also become a hi-tech wonder. Suntec City contains the largest fountain in the world, especially designed for good feng shui. Singapore Island itself has 63 smaller islands within its territorial waters. Among these is Sentosa Island, packed with sights and entertainments: aquariums, galleries, sports facilities and much more. Book a hostel stay today and start planning a jam-packed trip!
