You'll have the opportunity to sip 'Singapore Sling' cocktails in the elegant Raffles hotel, walk through the financial district to take in the impressive skyscrapers that are within touching distance of one another, to a cable car ride across the bay to Sentosa Island where you’ll discover tropical sandy beaches and a Universal Studios theme park. Other attractions include designer shopping malls on Orchard Road, the buzz of Chinatown and the exotic mix of Little India where delicious food can be cheaply found in the street food enclaves. Despite being densely populated more than half of the island is actually made up of protected parks and nature reserves.
