Quote: Singapore is the most "American" of any of the Asian cities that I have visited. My husband calls it "Asia 101," since most people speak English. It's wonderful! Clean, fresh, tropical!!! Total paradise!

Overview

Even though I've been to Singapore quite a few times, I've still never seen the whole city. Some of the areas we have visited are Sentosa Island, where there is fun for the whole family; the Zoo area ... they also have a bird park, and a night zoo; the East Coast Dining area ... wonderful, delicious, fresh seafood dishes; Orchard Road ... if you can't find it for sale on Orchard Road, it probably can't be bought. MANY huge department stores, restaurants, and more!Quick Tips: Best Way To Get Around: Singapore has GREAT public transportation. They have a nice bus system, and also a subway.

The Hilton / Orchard Road location is an excellent hotel! Beautiful surroundings, in a central part of town. Wonderful shopping all along Orchard Road makes it a great place for visitors, not to mention the great restaurants in the same area!

We did some other fun things also while in Singapore … Of course, we visited a few REAL grocery stores (you know, the ones with products that we actually wanted!), went to Holland Village, went to Jurong Bird Park, checked out their Chinatown (more of the same stuff as here in Nanjing), visited Arab Street (twice; the first time was on the holiday, and most places were closed), and even ran back through Little India. One of the funniest things that I saw on the whole trip happened in Singapore’s Chinatown. Steve and I were visiting one of the market areas, and ended up in what I would call the “medicinal” part of the market. There were stalls of full-body massages, foot massages, and reflex...Read More
