Exotic Tour To Singapore – Travellers often knock Singapore for its corporate mindset, draconian laws and relentless urban sprawl, but some of that is probably sour grapes about the cost of travel here compared to the rest of Southeast Asia. Fans of the city rave about the shopping, the fabulous food and the intoxicating blend of Indian, Chinese and Malay culture. So Singapore may not be as edgy as Bangkok or Phnom Penh, but there’s plenty to see, from quirky ethnic neighbourhoods and world-class museums to historic temples where the air is thick with incense, and things are fabulously well-organised – perfect for families breaking the journey between Europe and Australasia.
