Hmmm. Sentosa's okay, more of a pleasant getaway from Singapore city life than a stunning beach (man-made). Very expensive too, by Asian standards. Singaporean's however (understandably) love it.

I'd agree with Cheli's list for things to do and would definitely add making the most of the hawker centres to the list. The food is to die for, and much better than the restaurants that have been stained with westernisation..

hey! i've just been to singapore and had exactly the same queries as you. i asked a friend who lived here who got me to download this really cool product on to my mobile. it's absolutely free (crazy, right?!) and it's basically like having the yellow pages on your phone. it tells you what's going on in singapore, what restaurants are good, where they are, where the cool bars are, singapore tourist attractions, etc, etc. it also has some really good restaurant promotions (i got 20% off at a very expensive restaurant!) you can get in from getjar, but also directly from their website digitalconcierge2go . com
have fun and enjoy your time there...i can't wait to go back!

I've been Singapore one year ago for traveling. In my opinion, Singapore is a small country but its development is so amazing!! There is very clean, quiet and safe. I am especially excited about beautiful architecture buildings which was built based on Feng Shui. People there believe that all the good things or bad things are largely decided by Feng Shui. Have you ever seen Singapore $ 1 coin? It's the lucky coin being made based on the trigrams, means to dispel the evil spirits and all bad things.

Besides, people there are very friendly and polite; you can ask them anything you are confused, they will guide you enthusiastically. Singapore is very safe for you to travel alone and discover many interesting places yourself yes.gif
