Kick off your Singapore vacation by visiting the Singapore Flyer, one of the tallest Ferris wheels in the world, which sits atop a three-story shopping and restaurant mall. As you view the city from this modern aerie, you'll be able to see the Marina Bay area and Clarke Quay at the mouth of the Singapore River. A former trading sector, Clarke Quay is now the site of smart boutiques, upmarket restaurants, trendy nightclubs, and entrepreneurial pushcart vendors. After returning to the ground, visit Merlion Park with its iconic 28-foot-tall statue of Singapore's logo, a lion with a fish's tail. And because Singapore is a city that never sleeps, there's plenty to do at night. Hit up a number of trendy nightclubs and bars, or join the Night Safari to see nocturnal wildlife species from around the world.
Festivals and Events
Whether you're touring Chinatown, trekking through Little India, or using a car rental in Singapore to explore the outskirts, you're sure to encounter one or more of the many festivals that take place throughout the year. In October, the Indian Festival of Lights highlights the streets with attractive decorations, fireworks, delectable food, and parades. Celebrate the Chinese New Year, which usually takes place sometime in January or February, with red lanterns, new clothes, and mouth-watering eats. Arts festivals throughout the year display the city's artistic diversity, and excitement grips the city during August's National Day and September's Formula One Grand Prix.
