    Things to do in Singapore

    There's something to do to suit every taste and budget in Singapore! 

    • Head to Raffles, a 19th Century reminder of Singapore's colonial history and sample their most famous cocktail concoction - the Singapore Sling.
    • Animal lovers should make time to visit the renowned Singapore Zoo and maybe have breakfast with one of its orang-utans!
    • You might also want to say g'day to some of the nocturnal beasts next door at the Singapore Night Safari or see if birds of a feather really do flock together at the Jurong Bird Park.
    • Shopaholics will enjoy shopping Singapore-style on Orchard Road, the city's main drag.
    • For 24/7 entertainment, check out Sentosa Island - ride the luge and Skyride, visit Underwater World, the Dolphin Lagoon, Butterfly Park or Insect Kingdom, enjoy the view over Singapore from the top of the 37-metre Merlion or take in an interactive movie at Sentosa 4D Magix!
    • Explore multicultural Singapore to get a true sense of Singapore's cultural diversity - discover the sights, sounds and smells of Chinatown or Little India.
    • Or, for a complete change of pace, history buffs can visit Changi Village and the remains of its infamous prison, where many Australian and Allied prisoners were held during World War Two.
