Singapore is quite a compact city. It is clean and well organised. We used the MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) and taxis which were both surprisingly cheap for what is known as an expensive part of south east Asia. We like the eclectic mix of cultures living next to each other. Chinese, Malay, Indian and Western influences are all present. If you like opulence and shopping malls head to Orchard Road area. If you want to feel the real heartbeat of the city head to Chinatown or Little India. You can experience diversity like no other in Singapore. Surprisingly just off Chinatown, is Singapore’s oldest Hindu temple, Sri Mariamman Temple. Also in Chinatown is the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and museum complex . Remember to be respectful and wear modest clothing and remove shoes. After all the temple visits we spent the evening in an area curiously called Royal Holdings Cuppage Terrace. Here you will find an interesting mix of dining and drinking options all contained within traditional Singapore shophouses.
