  • Singapore is small, but very densely populated with people from a variety of cultures. On

  • the north bank of the Singapore River is the historic district. Though the majority of

  • the colonial city is gone now, important government buildings remain as well as a statue of Singapore’s

  • founder, Stamford Bingley Raffles. The south bank is the modern business district, where youll

  • find peculiar attractions like the towering Merlion statue among the skyscrapers. If youre

  • going to Singapore for shopping, you can’t do any better than Orchard Road. There are

  • shopping malls for miles, and many of them are even connected by underpasses so you can

  • avoid the heat and rain. For a much different shopping experience, visit the antique shops

  • and the stalls in Singapore’s Chinatown. Youll see some of Singapore’s older architecture

  • here as well, so it’s worth a visit even if you don’t feel like emptying your pockets.

  • Little India is another great place to find unique shops and stalls, and the colorfully

  • painted buildings are an attraction in themselves. Another beautiful area is Kampong Glam, the

  • old Malay district. It has been largely modernized, but youll still find beautiful historical

  • buildings like the Sultan Mosque and the Hajjah Fatimah Mosque here. It’s lucky that Singapore

  • is so small, because youll want to thoroughly explore all of its neighborhoods.
