Best Places to Visit in Singapore

Singapore has been dubbed a "playground for the rich," and it's true that the little city-state does exude opulence. But Singapore has more to offer than high-end shopping malls, luxurious hotels, and exquisite dining (though you should indulge a little if you can). There's also a strong history and a diverse ethnic section to explore, as well as several family-friendly attractions and gorgeous public areas, making this slightly futuristic city enjoyable to visit.

Singapore's public transit system is outstanding, making touring convenient and easy. You'll have no trouble zipping from one side of town to the another after you've mastered the metro map. English is widely spoken, and signs are also written in the language. In reality, Singapore is one of Southeast Asia's easiest and most comfortable countries to travel through. And as long as you don't compare pricing to Thailand or Vietnam, you'll have a wonderful time.
