5 Great Tourist Attractions in Singapore

23 October of 2012 by

In this year, the number of tourists who were attracted to visit Singapore was more than twice the total population of Singapore. This can be attributed to three things. One, Singapore has exquisite charm and character. The country’s amazing cultural diversity blends Western, Oriental, and Asian influences together. Two, Singapore has one of the lowest crime rates in the world, making a tourist stop to this Asian country a truly stress-free one. And three, travelling around Singapore is fast and convenient because the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) and other public conveyances make almost all routes readily accessible. For those reasons, even if you never experience overseas, Singapore is good for travel beginners. Also, travel beginners who may be inexperienced in finding cheap travel deals can rely on companies like Expedia to save money traveling, even to places as far as Singapore. As they become more experienced they will learn how to book cheap travel options on their own.

Treat yourself to a great vacation and visit Singapore’s tourist attractions. Read on and find out what’s in store for you.

More than two thousand animals are given home in the jungle confines of the open zoo known as the Singapore Zoological Gardens. Landscaped rock walls and manmade streams are used to separate the animals so visitors can see them without cages.

The Singapore Zoological Gardens is a special treat for kids. In a section called Children’s World, there are playgrounds where kids can interact with docile animals. Among many other kid-friendly attractions, there is an air-conditioned haven for polar bear exhibit and a Primate Kingdom.
