More about Singapore
Singapore is located in Southeast Asia and is a popular destination with tourists due to the myriad of activities available and also its close proximity to Malaysia. Founded as a British trading colony in 1819, since 1965 when it gained independence, it has thrived, attracting many flights to Singapore each year. Currently, it is considered one of the best places to live in all of Asia. With a modern infrastructure and a dense population, no space is wasted in this city/country. Its population is predominantly Chinese (about 75%) with Malays, Indians and the obligatory collection of expats.
Visitors can book cheap flights to Singapore at any time of the year as the weather is always sunny with no specific seasons, although it can rain regularly. The typical daytime temperature ranges from 28 to 32 degrees Celsius with nighttime temperatures from 23 to 26 degrees; air-conditioning is essential and is commonly used by locals – all public transport is also climate controlled.
Those who like to eat can avail themselves of a multitude of different food in Singapore, from local dishes such as chilli crab, with Indian and Malaysian food also being well represented. As the majority of the population is Chinese many restaurants offer Chinese food which is sometimes a blend of Malaysian food and makes for a memorable restaurant experience. Food courts and street hawkers also provide excellent food that is delicious.
Travellers who book flights to Singapore are certainly not disappointed when it comes to activities in the city: for beaches just head to Sentosa or the Southern islands, for food and culture head to the relevant district, Chinatown (for Chinese food), Little India (for Indian), Kampong Glam (for Arab/Malay food) or the East Coast for delicious fresh seafood.
Singapore now hosts many international concerts and any pop music band or DJ touring Asia will definitely appear in Singapore. The Esplanade Theatre in Marina Bay is a premier venue and frequently offers performances from the Singapore Symphony Orchestra.
Sports fans can avail themselves of Grand Prix action (at least until 2012), water sports are catered for in many locations (Singapore also has the highest density of swimming pools in the world) and Singapore boasts two world class casinos that attract gamblers from all over the world. In addition The Singapore Turf Club has racing most Fridays and is very popular with local gamblers.

Bangkok is a mere two hours away by air and is a popular shopping destination, even among the locals. Langkawi is just over an hour away and is famous for its beaches. So regardless of your itinerary, a short trip or one lasting months there is plenty to hold your interest in this modern city.
