First-time visitors to Singapore are in for a pleasant surprise. The city-state is spotlessly clean (think an Asian Zurich) and well organised with lots of great shopping with regular sales, great public transport, an enormous choice of dining out, extensive leisure and entertainment facilities and good security.
The city-state also has distinctive areas - each with its own traits and attractions. Orchard Road is well known for its shopping; Chinatown for its dining-out possibilities; Little India for its distinctiveness, and Sentosa Island for its leisure and fun opportunities. Even though Singapore is relatively small, it's jam-packed with areas waiting to be explored.
