Singapore, an island city-state off southern Malaysia, is a global financial centre with a tropical climate and multicultural population. Singapore is also known for eclectic street fare, served in hawker centres such as Tiong Bahru and Maxwell Road.
In the city, there is no need for a car. Public transportation is excellent and walking is a good way to explore the city. All major attractions are also accessible by tour bus. Since the city is only 60 miles (100k) from the equator, the tropical temperatures do not vary much. Rainfall is fairly evenly distributed through the year. No matter when you choose to visit, warm weather will be abundantly available. The visitor is struck immediately by Singapore’s abundance of parks, nature reserves, and lush, tropical greenery.
