Singapore as tour and holiday destination
Singapore is one of the most modern, westernized cities in Southeast Asia. It is a clean, efficient city-state, known for great shopping and good food. It is also a major air travel hub, and many travellers on intercontinental flights stop in Singapore for a few days’ holidays their way to other Asian destinations or to Australia. Singapore is a safe city for families, and for a first-time visitor to Southeast Asia, it is a good starting point. Accommodation is generally more expensive than in other countries in the region, but it is also of a very high standard.
