What to See in Singapore
It's a click to say every street has its secrets, or that around every corner lurks some new hidden charm. However, in Singapore they're 100% true. This section's mission is to help you find them, to impart the wisdom it normally takes locals years to acquire. For ease of use, we've given each of the city's main areas its own page. Expect the unexpected, an eclectic hotchpotch of trusty indigenous treasures and rising cosmopolitan gems.

Marina Bay Attractions
Esplanade, another premiere performing arts venue in Singapore features a 2,000-seat theatre, a 1,600-seat concert hall, two smaller studios, a mall as well as two outdoor theatres and is situated along the promenade. The two spiky looking domes are the large theatre and concert hall and have more than 7,000 pieces of aluminium roofing.

Sentosa Attractions
Sentosa is Singapore's premier island resort getaway with multi-faceted appeal, teeming with events all year round. Just 15 minutes from the city, it is a unique blend of leisure and recreational facilities including family attractions, sea sports, golf as well as hotel accommodation and retreats.

Clarke Quay & Riverside Attractions
The Singapore Flyer is a one-of-a-kind experience in Asia. Built over a three-story terminal building, Singapore Flyer is 150 metres in diameter, 165 metres in height and travels at 0.21m per second. Each of its 28 city-bus-sized air-conditioned capsules can carry up to 28 passengers and a complete rotation of the wheel takes approximately 30 minutes.

Chinatown Attractions
Singapore Chinatown is an amazing place full of beautifully restored shophouses selling amazing kind of products from jade Buddhas to textiles to Chinese herbs. The area was first designated for the Chinese by Sir Stamford Raffles and nowadays it is a favourite destination for good shopping as well as delicious food. Chinatown offers a lot more than just the restored shops, though: there are also a lot of significant monuments and cultural heritage buildings in Chinatown, especially along Along Telok Ayer Street and Pagoda Street. These include the Chinatown Heritage Centre, Sri Mariamman Temple, Thian Hock Keng Temple, Eu Yan Sang Chinese Medical Hall, the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Al-Abrar Mosque. When in the area be brave and try Singapore’s famous hawker food – an experience that should not be missed. The most intense time to visit Singapore's Chinatown is around the Chinese New Year when locals decorate their shops mainly in red with all sorts of decoration items including huge lanterns.

Orchard Road Attractions
Formerly known as Government House, Istana is where the Singaporean President's office is located. It was built from 1867 – 1869 by Sir Harry St George Ord, Singapore's first governor.

Little India Attractions
If in Singapore, the sound of Indian music and incense drifts on the breeze, it can only mean one thing: you are in Little India. Little India lies east of the Singapore River with the busy Serangoon Road as its centre point. Many visitors come to this area for shopping and dining, especially on Indian vegetarian food. Visitors will be amazed at what this area has to offer. There's an awful lot to buy here, from jewelry to Indian spices, clothes, gifts, balm, oil, beauty products, CD's, Bollywood DVD's and household items. The popular Mustafa Centre operates on a 24/7 basis and it's best to avoid it on Sundays as the centre and indeed most shops in Little India are usually too crowded on that day. Another popular draw in Little India is their good exchange rates – probably the best in town. Little India offers the taste of authenticity and there are a lot of places to explore when it comes to culture. For example the oldest temple in Little India, Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple, Abdul Gafoor Mosque, Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple and Sakyamuni Buddha Gaya Temple. Little India lies to east of the Singapore River, north of Kampong Glam

Geylang Serai Attractions
Geylang Serai lies on east coast of Singapore and is home to the Malay community. Being the original inhabitants of Singapore, the Malays have managed to keep their culture alive and vibrant. This is very noticeable in the goods and food at restaurants and shops in Geylang Serai. There are charming and colourful historical buildings which are protected from redevelopment in nearby areas such as on Joo Chiat and Katong Road. Geylang is also known as a round-the-clock food destination with dim-sum outlets as well as food stalls selling various exotic items such as pig’s brain soup and frog’s leg porridge. Of course, this area is also renowned as a red-light district (check out road number eight to about number 20 if you are curious) but it is certainly not the only one in Singapore – not many people know, but Singapore actually has no less than six red-light districts. Interesting places to see in Geylang include the Malay Village and Geylang Serai Market as well as Joo Chiat Street.

Kampong Glam Attractions
Kampong Glam and Bugis are two colourful districts, full of shops, restaurants, bazaars and markets located north of the Singapore River and not far from the city centre. Arab Street in Bugis is famous for Muslim and Middle-Eastern food as well as Arab-style shisha water pipes and mint tea.
Neighboring Kampong Glam is a haven for shoppers of all ages and those who like to explore flea markets and bazaars will enjoy shopping here. There are quite a number of cultural structures here, including Sri Krishnan, Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho, Sultan Mosque (aka Masjid Sultan) and the Malay Heritage Centre.

East Coast Attractions
Two very contrasting attractions can be found in the east of Singapore: The East Coast Park is famous as a fun-filled place to head to if you're after relaxation by the sea. With a manmade beach (featuring some highly professional sand castle and animal crafting), an 18-hole minigolf covered course and much more, this is a wonderful family destination. In direct contrast, the Changi Prison Chapel and Museum is a sobering expose of what Allied prisoners of war went through at the hands of the Japanese during World War II. An adjacent chapel is a replica of the one built by the prisoners.

Outlying Islands
Besides the theme-park delights and luxury hotels of Sentosa Island, Singapore has several outlying islands that are less developed and less crowded. They're great places to swim, sunbathe or even set up camp amid peaceful and natural surroundings.
