Three Great Singapore Attractions


The island city of Singapore has often proved to be a draw for tourists from around the world and with the fascinating mix of history, culture and entertainment on offer it’s easy to see why. This article takes a look at a few of the city’s most interesting sights, to give you an idea of what’s on offer.

The Chinatown Heritage Centre

A great first stop for anyone new to the city, or for anyone that just wants to learn a little more about the city’s history, is the brilliant Chinatown Heritage Centre. This fascinating centre lays out several period “movie style” sets, based on late-19th century and early-20th century scenes, ranging from the domestic to more public street scenes. These sets allow visitors to get a glimpse of the recent past in Singapore and acts as a contrast to the modern skyscrapers and shopping complexes of Singapore today.

Electronics for Cheap

With shopping being one of the biggest draws to the city, it’s no wonder it’s made it on to this list. Singapore is famed world wide for being one of the best places for “gadget fans” to pickup some great deals. This reputation comes from the huge array of electronics on offer in the city’s shops and markets, with everything from Handicams and portable DVD players to mobile phones and the latest laptops on offer. Sim Lim Square has to be the highlight for this type of shopping, with many of the retailers in the square willing to haggle and savings of up to 20% to be made.

Haji Lane

If electronics aren’t really your ‘thing’ and you’re into the more traditional fashion based shopping, then you’re in luck too; as Singapore’s Haji Lane is famed for its designer outlets. The shopping outlets in Haji Lane are recent developments, with many of them only opening in the past year. This aggressively hip retail area has it all on offer though, with the likes of Japanese label Garni rubbing shoulders with independent retailers who have the very latest fashion trends on display. The lane is located in the heart of Singapore’s Muslim quarter, making it the ideal destination to enjoy a Middle Eastern lunch at the local Cafe le Caire too.

This is obviously just a small taste of all the fantastic sights and sounds Singapore has to offer. So next time you’re looking for an Asian adventure, why not consider a trip to the fantastic city?
