Singapore, Singapore

Singapore is an island-state in Southeast Asia. Singapore City is by far the largest and most significant island alongside 63 others that make up Singapore state. Located at the mouth of the Singapore River, it is a modern, affluent city and the world's busiest port.

A blend of the ancient and modern can be seen from the gleaming skyscrapers to Chinese and Hindu temples. Combining a lush tropical climate, with tasty food, good shopping and a happening, vibrant nightlife scene, this Garden City makes a great stopover or springboard into the region.

Transport Links -
Another way in is by road from or via Johor Bahru in Malaysia. There are buses from Kuala Lumpur (KL) and many other destinations in Malaysia through the Woodlands Checkpoint and the Second Link at Tuas. Unfortunately, there is no central bus terminal and different companies leave from all over the city. The Malaysian state rail operator KTMB [22] runs daily trains, including a sleeper service, from Kuala Lumpur. Ferries link Singapore with neighbouring Indonesian province of Riau Islands, and the Malaysian state of Johor.
Getting around Singapore is effortless: the public transportation system is among the best in the world and taxis are cheap.
