Wonder at the architecture. A giant liner standing on top of soaring curved skyscrapers. A field of coloured glass mushrooms reach up towards the heavens. Curved shapes and gigantic towers inspire the eyes and dominate the Singapore riverside.
But admiring the architecture isn’t the only reason for planning a stopover in Singapore. You can cruise the river in an old, converted rice boat, photographing the city as you go. You can indulge your palate in the outstanding seafood restaurants along Marine Parade, wander round beautiful botanical gardens or pick your own orchids in Orchidville, for sending to friends and family. You can explore the warren of shops, letter writers, noodle-makers and restaurants that is Chinatown, or shop for silks and saris, gold and spices in Little India. You can visit the open air restaurants in the Lau Pa covered market, take a cable car to Sentosa Island’s theme park or go on a zoological night safari.
