Every year this city-state rises in the lists of hot destinations. Visitors are tempted to book a hotel in Singapore by its vibrant mix of cultures and cuisine, its world-class array of attractions and a super-fast public transport system that whizzes you around with no fuss. Singapore is working towards becoming a 'City in a Garden' and its iconic skyline of concrete skyscrapers is gradually being replaced with eco-friendly 'green' ones. You only have to head a short way out of town as well to discover a different green landscape of jungle, walking trails and dazzling wealth of wildlife. Whether you've spent the day sightseeing in the city or exploring the countryside, you'll have built up an appetite. Which is good, as food is taken seriously in Singapore. Every neighbourhood has its selection of street food stalls and hawkers, all serving excellent quality food while Michelin-starred restaurants abound - over three dozen of them! If you want to find cheap hotels in Singapore, then visit Opodo where you can search for and book a hotel by location, price, date and room type.
Modern Singapore was born in the district north of the Singapore River and between the Dhoby Ghaut MT station and City Hall. This area is packed with attractions from the iconic Raffles Hotel to the National Museum of Singapore, the Singapore Art Museum and the Asian Civilisation Museum. Plenty to keep culture vultures busy for a morning or more. The Marina Bay area offers refreshing waterside walks, luxury shopping and culture in the ArtScience Museum. Its highlight though is the Gardens by the Bay with its supersize vertical gardens. These gardens are shaped like trees and rise to between nine and 16 storeys high. Also giving a break from the sun and heat is the Singapore Botanic Gardens; this UNESCO World Heritage Site is Singapore's green lung. If you want to shop for holiday gifts and souvenirs then Suntec City and Orchard Road are among Singapore's largest shopping centres while each neighbourhood has its own shops and markets.
Singapore has a diverse choice of neighbourhoods where it's easy to find hotel deals. Each has something different to offer whether it's food, culture, shopping or nature. Explore Singapore's early Chinese history at the Chinatown Heritage Centre. When it's time for lunch, head to either Chinatown Food Street or the Maxwell Road Hawker Centre. This is Singapore's oldest street food market and as well as serving delicious Chinese cuisine is friendly on the wallet. In contrast to Chinatown is Little India which lies along Serangoon Road and the streets around. There are plenty of cheap hotels and hostels here which give you a taste of life among Singapore's Indian community. Explore the Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple, one of the oldest Hindu temples in Singapore. You can shop around the clock at the Mustafa Centre while this district also has its own hawker market, the Tekka Centre. If you're looking for a more indulgent holiday of beach fun and relaxation, then book your hotel in Singapore on Sentosa Island. You can get there by monorail or the more scenic cable car route from HarbourFront. Sentosa Island has three beaches, golf courses, walking trails and spas while if you're travelling with your family, there is the Adventure Cove Water Park and the Mega Adventure Park. This features southeast Asia's most challenging zipline!
