As a popular tourist destination, cheap flights to Singapore are readily available. The city-state of Singapore, located in Southeast Asia, is a unique combination of modern and luxury living with a historically rich area. This island is small, but there is no shortage of skyscrapers. The Changi Airport is an international, modern airport with flights connecting the island to Asia, Europe and throughout the world. Major airlines here include SilkAir, Scoot, Jetsar Asia, and Singapore Airlines.
Singapore flights arrive from destinations as far as Africa. The airport itself is well organised and easy to navigate. There are even free city tours available, leaving from the airport, numerous times throughout the day.
After Singapore flights, travellers will need transportation to get around the city. Public transportation is solid here. Even taxis are reasonably priced overall. It's less common for travellers to rent vehicles, but this is an option for some. The Mass Rapid Transit system is one of the best routes to getting around Singapore. This light rail transit system connects most areas of the city. It's very affordable and fast. The underground stations have various stops along the route, making it easy to plan your movements. Buses are widely available, but may be harder to use overall. Taxis are reliable but more expensive. You will need to book these in advance. There are also bumboats worth using, at least for the view. These will take you down the Singapore River inexpensively.
For those looking for beaches, visit Sentosa. If you're after a historical lesson, visit Bras Basah, an area on the north side of the river with a number of old buildings and museums. You can explore the natural components of the area with a trip to Singapore Zoo, the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve or to the Jurong Bird Park. Visit Garden City to see a Japanese garden.
Also important is a visit to the various temples, mosques and churches throughout the city. You may wish to visit the Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery and the Burmese Buddhist Temple in Balestier. There are numerous temples throughout the city, including the Sri Mariamman Hindu temple. You can also spend some time golfing, playing at one of the casinos or go to the movies. Check out the Singapore Visitor's Centre for more fun things to do.
Shopping has become a popular option in the skyscraper area of the city. The biggest area for shopping is Orchard Road.
When it comes to food, you'll find restaurants available throughout the city. Chinatown is ideal for Chinese cuisine, of course. Be sure to visit Kampong Glam for Arab and Malay cuisine. For Indian cuisine, visit the Little India area.
There are numerous 24-hour clubs here. Most of the nightlife in the city is near the three Quays. Fridays are the nights to head out on the town. You may wish to visit a karaoke box location or spend some time dancing. Cheap flights to Singapore make it easy to enjoy this area and all of the culturally rich aspects of it.
