Eat lots!

Head to Little India for a proper thali meal, eaten in true style - with your paw; enjoy a huge dim sum breakfast in Chinatown; and stop off for some laksa or something similar, washed down with a bottle or two of Tiger beer. Perhaps not all on the same day tho biggrin.gif

If you're into technology there are whole malls dedicated to computers, cameras, camcorders and other electrical goodies... it's cheap as well, but make sure you shop round and compare prices on the models you are interested in, prices can vary quite a bit.

Apparently there's a zoo/safari park which I heard is very well done for an animal prison, if that takes your fancy. And Sentosa Island is a popular tourist destination, although I didn't go there myself.

I was there for three days in total - which was more than enough time for me; you might find my diary of my time there of interest:

Happy travels,
Steve

I haven't been there myself but I can tell you what not to do...don't chew gum. It's illegal.

I really recommend the orchid garden in the middle of the city. I was lucky enough to get a guided tour and found it fascinating. Its very peaceful and they just opened a new pavillion with mountain flowers.
Also, there is a crazy amusement park on an adjacent island, I didn't go but a lot of people I met enjoyed their day there.
Go out clubbing! Some pretty cool places in Sing, just pick up the local papers and ask around at the hostels for what's on.
Don't forget to get a pic with the MerLion!

I have more info in my TPod entry on Singapore.
Cheers!
