Travel guide to the wonderland Singapore
Singapore is often perceived as the city of the future - the unthinkable number of skyscrapers per square meter of space are doing their job. But life is always richer than postcard species. Unfortunately, deciding on a long flight to an exotic country is always difficult, but we have several good reasons to include Singapore in our plans.
Firstly, few cities combine the crazy energy of a metropolis and the opportunity to enjoy a rich collection of art. Start exploring Singapore with a panoramic view from the Singapore Flyer. Then head to Gardens by the Bay - don't forget to grab a picnic basket.
It is worth allotting a day to visit the Art Science Museum. In addition to the impressive 60-meter facade, the museum is known for being the first in the world to choose as its theme the study of the role of creativity in science and society.
Stop for a cocktail in the BAY @ 5 bar: there guests can take a canvas with oil paints and create on their own - the view from the bar will definitely captivate you.
Finish your tour of the city with a cruise; they usually start at Marina Bay.
Of course, a long journey cannot last one or two days. The most convenient way to stay is in Mandarin Oriental; there you will have round-the-clock views of the metropolis and the bay, as well as tickets to all the main attractions. As a bonus, the hotel organizes a romantic sunset boat ride.
We should add that Singapore is also a suitable destination for lovers of gastronomic tourism, especially those who have already studied all European cuisines. Start exploring the culinary traditions of Asia with a tea party: this will help you immerse yourself in the meditative atmosphere of the country and tune in to new experiences.
Many tourists call Singapore a paradise for shopping, because it can compete with Tokyo, Bangkok, Shanghai or Hong Kong in the number of huge shopping centers and branded stores. Locals say that Singapore shopping is considered a kind of national sport in the country. Indeed, to go on a full-fledged shopping tour of Singapore, you need to have Olympic stamina.
The largest concentration of stores in Singapore takes place in the Bugis area.
Today, on a busy street, hundreds of popular shops and huge shopping centers are represented. Here is the famous Bugis Junction shopping center, which presents popular clothing and footwear stores. This shopping center is considered one of the most beautiful in the city, it is covered by a glass roof.
Orchard Road is also considered one of Singapore's largest shopping streets. The very first stores opened here in the 30s of the last century, today the street is the location of the most prestigious shopping centers. Here is the futuristic shopping complex ION Orchard, which has the largest Louis Vuitton store in the region.
