The major area of Singapore is part of a peninsula that is separated from Malaysia by the "Street of Johor". An other 58 islands belong to this city state, too.

For visitors it is very interesting to see the melting pot of various cultural groups and to get knowledge of their different rites, customs, religions, cultures, and cuisines.

Besides the modern city centre and shopping area, Chinatown, Little India, Kampung Malay are famous tourist attractions.

In Singapore's centre many streets and houses from the city's colonial epoch have been replaced by very modern and futuristic architectures and have changed the image of this city completely during the last 20 years.

Singapore presents itself as a clean, vivid, and busy city - at day as well as at night.

With its well organized subway system and bus transportation it is easy to explore Singapore cheap and without any hassle.

At night people love to walk along Singapore Rivers, making reservations for dinner at one of those restaurants along "Clarke Quay" before its to crowded there. But even a walk on busy and crowded "Orchard Road" or at "Bugis Centre" invites for sightseeing, shopping and dining.
