– Singapore was originally a Malay fishing village, the British colonialists came in 1819 and the change began.

When you come to Singapore, maybe by Singapore Airways, Silk Air or the budget airline Tiger Airways and look out from the aircraft window you immediately will notice Singapore’s unique location at the southernmost tip in south east Asia. A strategic important location between East and West as already the British colonialists have known who started developing the island just as they did with Penang Malaysia. The Singapore city nation is a prime trading hub, tourist destination and many people, companies and countries got the message, they all sent their envoys to start business. Today Singapore Hotels probably are the incoming people second stop after touching down at Changi Airport. The city is also a magnet for migrant workers from the Indian subcontinent, China and southeast Asian countries such as Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, Myanmar or Burma etc. They all search for jobs since the construction boom goes on since years and the newest additions are the Singapore casinos such as the Marina Sands and the RWS Casino on Sentosa Island.

Singapore travel shows a place in Asia where the urban meets the traditional, modern architecture integrates greenery and high tech merges with age-old historical cultures. The Lion City offers plenty of unique experiences, Singapore shopping, sightseeing, partying, dining, nightlife, great hotels and resorts plus other attractions such as Singapore food and a vibrant nightlife.

To get around use the SMRT Singapore, have a look at Orchard Road, the main Singapore shopping area, the whole area screams shopping! your tax refund will be handed to you at the Changi Airport when you leave. If you are on transit in the night, take a taxi and get to Mustafa Centre in Little India. Mustafa Centre

shopping mall is open 24 hours daily and sells everything including electronics, textiles, jewelry, food, souvenirs etc.. Take a boat ride on the river, you can board the boats at Clarke Quay, enjoy Little India and Chinatown, have a trishaw ride and visit Singapore Zoo, do a Night Safari, enjoy the Singapore Orchid Garden, the Jurong Bird Park and try the endless array of restaurants and food courts.

Casinos are on Sentosa Island and Marina Bay. There are a couple of beaches around and plenty of Singapore food at food courts, hawker food and beer bars, get some fresh seafood. In 2010 Singapore Marina Bay Singapore City Sands Casino

got a new Landmark it’s Marina Bay Singapore including the Marina Bay Sands Casino, its the ultimate casino travel destination, things to do in the city are Singapore shopping and Singapore travel.
In the nineteen century this place was still a malaria infested jungle settlement and today the city is considered one of the top financial and business powers in Asia plus a tourist hub in the region via Changi Airport. Lots of people in the surrounding area consider the Island State a save haven and invest and bunker their money there. The island nation is well known to be home of different cultures and ethnicities, mainly Chinese, Indian, Malaysian, Indonesian and plenty of other from around the globe. The place is a rather very small country, its modern, its trendy and a lot of people make lots of money there.

Since Singapore shopping is “in”. This could change now since the first casinos opened and more Singapore casinos will follow to generate more casino travel destinations and themes. Everyone know that most people loose in a casino, only the state via taxes and the casino owners make the cash, but in any case visit the “Lion City”, its a great exotic Asian City-State, try to find a great Singapore Hotel.

– When you arrive at Changi airport,

maybe at the Budget Terminal Changi you will find a pleasant surprise, Changi airport is very well organized

that includes the budget terminal for the Budget Airlines. One of this budget airlines is Tiger Airways, they have by far the best flight rates to Singapore, but they are very strict, even if there is the smallest problem, lets say your passport don’t have the officially required totally blank pages (on travel to Thailand) etc. they will refuse check in and your ticked is gone, among other.

They don’t know that nobody in the relevant countries around really care about such things as long as there is enough space for the in and out stamp. People who go by the book in south east Asian countries will always create problems and the passenger finally has the real problem so be careful when doing Singapore travel with Tiger Airways.

Changi is also a great place for Singapore shopping and this for all terminals, but whatever they tell you everything is much cheaper downtown in  Singapore city center, that must not be
at Orchard Road, there are thousands

places for shop Singapore, small and big. Marina Bay Sands is also a great shop Singapore destination.
In the arrival halls are banks to change money. Changing money downtown at the money changer give you a better rate, if you use a ATM card (there are several ATM in the arrival hall) calculated how much money you will need since the ATM charges are not so low.

Airport to Singapore city transport is at best by SMRT or MRT, there is a MRT Singapore Station at the basement of terminal 3, more on SMRT below.

range all the way down to about S$ 45,- for a night. Singapore is known for great hotels but most are quite expensive relative to other countries in the region. In particular the hotels at Orchard Road. Orchard
Road is the main shopping district in the city, its huge, looks good and is very creative. This “Shopping Temples” mean they make lots of money

After use the SMRT Singapore to move further. The ticket system of the MRT Singapore city  is not on a good level, very often the ticket machines are not working, its very similar to Kuala Lumpur, there most of the ticket
machines at the underground wont work at all. Anyway, take the MRT Singapore, its still the most efficient and fastest transportation and run because they never wait, even at the most obvious situation, they just don’t care about the passenger. Even run and don’t look when you spot some of this pretty Singapore girls, they come in all shades from very white complexion to very dark, but this wont matter, most are pretty regardless of the complexion. Singapore girls have mainly a Chinese ethnic background, but there are plenty of Asian girls from Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand Girls, girls from Europe and in the last few years girls from Russia and the countries of the former Soviet Union found their way to Singapore city.

Once you settled in your Singapore hotel at Orchard Road have a look around you will see almost more Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche as in Monaco, a clear indication where the money is. But keep in mind there are no cheap hotels at Orchard Road or vicinity, cheap Singapore at Orchard Road that’s a myth. A cosmopolitan state attracting plenty of tourists every year aside of the fact that prices are real high relative to the other countries in the region. Singapore managed to get a good reputation as being a safe country with lots of green around, maintaining the image as a garden city of the East somehow similar as Rangoon or today Yangon was built by the British. Singapore is a real great tropical city by any means, only sometimes the authorities are overdoing it, they are very tough if something wont go the way they want to have it go. Singapore shopping

This Singapore garden idea has positive sides in particular when comparing the city to other chaotic places in south east Asia such as Manila and Jakarta. Bangkok is somehow in between and the Thai are making real progress unless the red and yellow shirt groups wouldn’t fight and protest, creating almost

anarchy and ruining the country for the ego of some politicians. The culmination of the Singapore garden idea is the Singapore Orchid Garden with well maintained garden filled with variety of flowers, read more about top orbitrim reviews and  all about gardening.

Singapore has a strong economic system greased by the money of 

the rich people in the countries around the island state who are moving their cash into Singaporean banks known as a safe haven. A lavish Singaporean lifestyles often copied from London, Paris and New York attracts luxury tourists into luxury hotels and resorts.

– There is a other side of Singapore, this is Singapore culture and art.

Buddhism in Singapore is the main local religion

Tanglin Shopping
Singapore Antiques at Tanglin Shopping Mall
depicted in many Singapore antiques, in particular in the Tanglin Shopping center, one of the prime antique Buddhist art shopping complex in Asia. Many antique artifacts which disappeared in Cambodia, Thailand and Myanmar
miraculous appeared in antique shops in Singapore.

A good blend of European and Asian cultures makes Singapore a excellent choice for overseas companies to put their regional operation offices there. Skyscrapers, clean and attractive parks, a ban on chewing gum and other strange things add exotic flavor, Singapore is a expensive country in relation to the other states around, but with a little information it is easily possible to keep Singapore vacation and travel costs at bay.
Singapore Mall at Orchard Road
Orchard Road shopping is just made for you the area also contains  myriads of pubs, and restaurants of local style, means food courts and nicely decorated bars but be aware they are merciless capitalistic, if you don’t order enough they tell you get lost. Which happen to me at the pub pictured right. A similar experience I got was when I stayed at the Swissotel Stamford, since I didn’t order immediately something at their lobby bar after I sat

down the waitress told me I should get lost, since the Swissotel only wants people who buy something, before this it was the Westin hotel, never had a similar problem with them. This people don’t know when enough is

Clarke Quay Singapore
Clarke Quay Singapore is a premier nightlife spot, those places are not as vibrant as Bangkok nightlife but quite ok, the hot go-go and bar girls environ is not available in the city. Here is Phuket nightlife for comparison.
enough, they only are addicted to cash now, all other is no good for them, its really disgusting to experience such mega greed beyond any human behavior.   Keep this in mind when you book a Singapore hotel next time, not with Swissotel since they only consider you as a cash cow and give you a real hard time! Here are some Singapore photos.

A top notch hotel is the Marina Bay Sands (picture right) the newest Singapore attraction, that’s a hotel plus casino. If you are a lover of meat grills, this place is a must go. You can get to check various grills brands like traeger grill reviews.Prices are starting at S$ 399,- up to about S$ 12.000,- for the best suite, but they have no Jacuzzis, whether in the normal rooms nor in the suites. A simple example concerning a Singapore hotel, around Orchard Road, the main shopping mile in Singapore no hotels are available below around S$ 150,- but if you choose a hotel lets say around Aljunied SMRT train station its about S$ 50,- and the only difference is that the hotel rooms are a little bit smaller and have no bath tub, just shower.

Aljunied is about half way between the Singapore airport and down town Orchard Road.  A typical hotel there (actually there are many modern Singapore hotels in this area) is the 81 star hotel, if you book this Singapore hotel at the airport hotel booking its S$ 45,- per night.

– There are myriads of restaurants, bars and food courts

around everywhere in the Orchard Road area and elsewhere, the more expensive Singapore restaurants usually are in the hotels. On your  trip you will experience a great bar and Singapore lounge here and there plus exotic food.

Now a Singapore casino opened and another casino in Singapore is coming, check your wallet!

It seems like Singapore has the highest density of restaurants and food courts in Asia, virtually at every street corner a other eatery is offering some exotic food. The good news is you can eat the stuff from this street restaurants and not running 2 days to the toilet afterwards as it is with most street food in Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia etc., it might be the water they use for cooking and cleaning, in Singapore its clean.

There are different varieties of Singapore food such as various Chinese, Malay, Thai, Japanese, a dozen of Europe verities, Arab food and even Russian, Mongolian, Myanmar and so on. You could eat through this multi-cuisines for a whole year and try a different one every day. Also all this fusion food, fast food, burger etc. is available, in Singapore a permanent food feast is on.

– Some Singapore nightlife.

In the Aljunied area you even get a extra bonus, I don’t know if you like it but this is one of the areas in Singapore where the naughty girls hang around. But no problems, nobody will ever bothering you if you wont do the start, its not like Bangkok nightlife or Phuket nightlife where they run after you, on the other hand its no as vibrant and spicy as Thailand nightlife. Many Singapore food courts are open 24/7, this is a real customer friendly environ, in almost all other south east Asian countries the restaurants and food courts are closed at least by 11pm.
