Singapore is an Asian melting pot of fascinating crossroad between East and West. Here the hypermodern buildings of the financial district blend with Chinatown’s classic small houses. As an old trading town, Singapore is the natural place for anyone who wants to shop – the range is enormous.
In addition, Singapore offers a cuisine with influences from all corners of Asia that exceeds the highest expectations.
