Synopsis

Marco Polo Singapore: the Travel Guide with Insider Tips.

Fully revised and updated for 2017. Now with new Discovery Tours chapter.

Experience all of Singapore's attractions with this up-to-date and authoritative guide, complete with 'Best Of' recommendations: breath-taking hotels, authentic restaurants, nightclubs and other trendy places to go. In addition there are ideas for things to do with children and a summary of exciting festivals and events in the city state. Further sections include: Travel Tips, Links, Blogs, Apps & more, and index.

Asia for beginners? Sterile housing blocks with no character, and even no soul? There can be hardly another city in Southeast Asia so laden with cliches as Singapore, the metropolis of 5 million people. In fact there are only a few cities in the world that offer such variety. And anyone who gets really involved in the city can immerse themselves in a veritable melting pot of Asian cultures.



With MARCO POLO Singapore you will discover a city state in which there is something for everybody. Why not take a stroll through Chinatown in the morning, be lured by the sounds and tastes of India at lunchtime, and in the evening chill out on Sentosa Beach? With this practical, pocket-sized guide you will experience a tropical island, where epochs and cultures merge. British, Malays, Indians and Chinese live together peacefully in Southeast Asia's world city. With everything from ultra-modern shopping malls to hawkers, winding paths under tropical trees and a cultural palette that is always exciting, Singapore offers the very best of Asia in a confined space.



The MARCO POLO Insider Tips reveal where to find Singapore's oldest tailors, and where you can go and see Kumar, the city state's top drag queen. The 'Perfect Day' takes you on a tour through the city, during which you can experience its many different sides in condensed form: from breakfast with two 'K-cups' to detours into the Colonial District and Little India, and a look into the cooking pots of Chinatown.



The 'Best Of' pages point out some experiences unique to Singapore, recommend things to do for free, and have tips for rainy days and where you can relax and unwind. Panels in each chapter suggest things to do if you re on a tight budget and where you might pick up some real bargains. Start your day with an excursion to the Peranakan Culture of Katong and finish it on the river under lanterns. The MARCO POLO walking tours take you from everyday life into the colonial era. Finally the Dos & Don'ts tell you why you should do without cigarettes and chewing gum and why it's best to plan you excursions for weekdays.



MARCO POLO Singapore provides comprehensive coverage of all parts of the city. To help you find your way around there is a detailed Street Atlas, a useful map of the public transport system in the cover, plus a separate pull-out map.
