    hi there,

    Things to see include:

    - The Chinese New Year

    - Deepavali, Indian Festival of Lights in November

    - Hari Raya Puasa , celebrated by the Malay Muslims to signify the end of the fasting season is also in November.

    - Mid Autumn Festival or Lantern Festival, a harvest celebration in September.

    If you want to experience the real Singapore, apart from the shopping malls in Orchard Rd, go to Little India, Chinatown or the Sultan Mosque area. This is where Singapore is at its most authentic and exotic.

    Another great thing to do in Singapore is eating at a hawker centre where you can find original Singaporean street food. such as soup tulang, chicken rice, fish ball noodles, etc.

    Hope this helps

    Try to get yourself a copy of Singapore travel guide upon your arrival in Changi Airport. The guide is usually good enough for you to determine where you could start off your discovery of Singapore.

    Of course you will never go wrong with the popular Singapore tourist attractions such as the Singapore Zoo , Singapore Night Safari (Night Zoo), Jurong Bird Park , Sentosa Island and the Singapore Flyer etc.

    Sentosa Island itself is full of fun filled activities and it could easily take you a day to discover the whole of Sentosa. Some of the fun activities in Sentosa you should not miss are 4D Magix, Cineblast, Tiger Sky Tower, the Luge and Skyride, Songs of the Sea and many more.

    Besides visiting attractions, you should also experience the nightlife of Singapore. Some great night spots in Singapore are Chijmes Singapore , Mohammed Sultan Road , Robertson Quay and Holland Village.

    I never get the chance to visit this wonderful location. But one friend of mine visited this place last year. He used to share his experience about this location every time I meet him. I just saw the pictures of this place. From the pictures I can imagine the beauty of it.

    The small country of Singapore is actually loaded with fun stuffs and tourists attractions, be it the night bars, universal studios, night safari or cruising. However, the main surprise lies in the Singapore Changi Airport. As soon as your plane land you will be enthralled to see such an enticing airport.

    Surely, there are so many things to see and do in Singapore. I believe that Singapore is great when it comes to shopping and dining. If you are a shopaholic why not go to the famous Orchard Road where you can see famous retail stores like Chanel or Louis Vuitton maybe. If you want a relaxing place go ahead to Botanic Gardens. And don't forget to visit Universal Studios because you will surely love it.
