"Perhaps the most remarkable thing about Singapore is the wildlife thriving so close to the city. The Singapore Botanic Gardens stretch over hundreds of acres, including the National Orchid Garden and ten acres of natural, preserved rainforest. You should also check out the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, where a broad variety of birds from all over the world live or migrate to during the winter. Singapore is also home to a variety of religious communities, and not visiting any of the temples would be a mistake. Go to Chinatown to see the Thian Hock Keng Temple, Singapore’s oldest Hokkien temple, with its colorful, intricate facade and doors guarded by statues of lions, tigers, and mythical creatures.
Also not to be missed is the Sultan Mosque, the center of Singapore’s Muslim community in Kampong Glam. Though it’s the second mosque to be built on the site, its importance hasn’t diminished since the first one was built in 1826. For fun away from the city, visit Sentosa Island. Hit the beach, take a nature walk through the rainforest, or relax in one
of the island’s spas. If you’re travelling with children, Sentosa Island is also packed with attractions that will appeal to them, including Universal Studios Singapore. Whether you’re interested in nature, relaxation, or culture, Singapore has a wealth of things to do."
