Weekend Getaways from Keluang
103 Kms from Keluang
This island city-state located south of Malaysia is all about modernity. Synonymous with its iconic skyline that exhibits discernable features such as that of the Esplanade and Marina Bay Sands, the Lion city is also scattered with traditional architecture seen on temples and homes, bohemian hideaways and heritage bazaars. Chinatown, Dempsey Hill and Tiong Bahru are some of the most popular places to visit in Singapore. And if you are visiting Singapore in January, experience the joy that is the Chinese New Year, when the entire city comes out to celebrate. Unwind at the 182-acre Botanic Gardens. Take a heritage walk through some of the city’s most prominent landmarks such as the historic Supreme Court and the City Hall buildings. Museum enthusiasts should head to the edifying Singapore Art Museum and Singapore’s history, the National Museum of Singapore. For moments away from the megalopolis, take the ferry down to Pulau Ubin, Kusu Island or Sisters’ Island and take delight in the tourist-free tropical coastline. If you are looking to explore around, a cruise (to Malaysia or Thailand) is a fairly popular thing to do. For a glimpse into what Singapore has to offer, visit one of the state-of-the-art waterparks or experience indoor skydiving in the beaches of Sentosa. When the sun sets, dance the night away at the bustling nightlife district of Clarke Quay or hit up one of the many legendary beach parties. Also in Singapore, do as the locals do and queue up for a taste of the authentic street eats. Shaped by its multi-ethnic immigrants, Singaporean street cuisine is an experience in itself.
