The tropical city-state of Singapore may be small, but it packs a punch with a wealth of dazzling modern attractions, while also being a unique melting pot of Asian and Western influences.
Inside Explore Singapore:
Explore Singapore is part of a new series and is the ideal pocket companion when discovering this dynamic and atmospheric city: a full-colour guide containing 18 easy-to-follow routes which lead you from the colonial sights of the Civic District and the glamorous development at Marina Bay to the colorful bustle of Kampong Glam and Little India, and out to Sentosa's white sands and theme parks, as well as the lesser-known corners of the island.
Insight's trademark cultural coverage perfectly sets the routes in context, with introductions to Singapore's excellent cuisine, shopping and nightlife, as well as its history. The best places to eat and drink are highlighted in each route and in the directory section, which also contains a wealth of practical information, including our selection of hotels to suit all budgets. All routes are plotted on the useful pull-out map, and evocative photography captures the essence of this vibrant city.
