Singapore has some excellent, world renowned restaurants, serving most of the global delicacies. However, it is usually the local dishes that appeal more to leisure tourists who come here to explore more than just sites and attractions.

Last but not the least, you must pay heed to certain useful travel tips and suggestions that will make sure you have an enjoyable and healthy vacation in Singapore.

Singapore is hot and humid most times of the year, come prepared with comfortable and light clothes. Getting around in Singapore is extremely easy as different means of public transport is available, but perhaps none more popular than the MRT (mass rapid transit) train system. Another important point to remember is that Singapore has some strict laws against littering and spitting. It is a surprisingly clean city and these laws are in place to make sure that it remains so.
