Hello there, I am from Singapore.
With the opening of large-scale tourist attractions such as the Integrated Resorts and the hosting of international events recently such as F1 and Youth Olympics, I wonder, as a Singaporean: What is it that really attracts people to visit Singapore?
(If you're a Singaporean, what do you think really does make others want to visit Singapore?)
I am not from Singapore but wish I was. It is a vibrant clean city. Your MRT runs like clockwork and is clean and safe. The service is excellent and the attractions are varied. I particularly like your botanical gardens and the orchid house which, I believe is the largest in the southern Hemisphere. What else...ah...the bonsai garden and haw pah villas ( I think that is what they are called), they used to be known as the Tiger Balm gardens after their founder..who founded tiger balm. I go on...China town, little India, Arab street. As you can see I am a Singaporean in waiting:). For the ladies there is more shopping than you would ever believe...and now I will stop:)
I went to Singapore twice and it is a highly urbanized city state with lots of attractions, I wrote a hub about it - "Singapore the lion city state".
Although I live in Singapore, I am not Singaporean. Have written lots of hubs on Singapore's attractions. I like that there is lots to do. It's whether you have the time to do it or not. The only thing lacking here is probably nature (there is Pulau Ubin, Botanical Gardens etc) but of course no National Park like bigger countries such as Malaysia.
Hi there alqx
I'm a Kiwi.. and we tend to travel alot, though I have not been to Singapore, which is on my wish list.
For Me... I think the primary attraction (other than your culture etc.) would have to be the brilliant collections of Asian Art that your government has accumulated over the years; including the spectacular 60,000 unit Tang collection found off the Java coast.
For that alone Singapore gets my vote... but we have better fishing
Went to Singapore last Feb. this year, and I admire the City's cleanliness and discipline.. but the cost of living is very high. But Singapore is best in entertaining foreigners, the malls are great and Sentosa is the best, went there be because my cousin tagged me along free fare and minor assistance on shopping spree...
Had forgotten Sentosa and the amazing dancing waters...are they still there?
It is called the musical fountain. Have to check if it's still there since they revamped the place.
When did you visit Sentosa?
The new dancing waters/musical show is called Song of the Seas and is priced at $10 per head. Still a good watch, I would say... kids and even adults would enjoy the laser effects and fireworks!
Singapore is the smallest country I have been to that has everything within my mind's eye. That means everything is easy to find and all the people things are available. Except chewing gum - who cares about that. Not me.
I had a great time in Singapore. Luckily I was serving on a ship there and we used to go to Changi village, just up the road from the docks. A great place. Of course we had to go to Raffles Hotel as well, just to say we'd had a drink there.
that nice an there are too many cool places in singapore
Singapore is a shopping paradise and that is the sole reason why i go there..
Singapore is a shopping paradise and when I go to Singapore I pretty much spend all my time on Orchard Road to shop, and to go the Shaw Theatre. Great cinema!
Aside from that, I do my VISA runs/ extensions. Singapore is one of the fastest countries, if not THE fastest, to provide you with a new VISA.
Coming to Singapore for food. Love the chili crab and bakut te.
Another reason is to go to Ikea. Until Ikea open in Indonesia, then i will still fly to Singapore for my furniture (small one, not Sofa)
And finally for books. Kinokuniya and Borders is among few bookstore that I visit
Because only Singapore has the beautiful places and view and not almost anywhere.

1. I love books so I go to Singapore definitely because they have Kinokuniya and Borders
2. It's a clean and safe city
3. Shopping is always a good activities at Singapore
I have heard about Singapore and want to enjoy that place. Just to see Singapore green place.
Still a wonderful place for me although I live in the States today. Getting too pricey too - most of my expat friends are complaining
Thousands of visitors pack their bags and move to Singapore for holidays. Many of them are from Asia and very few are from rest of the world. Even I can see the no of packages to Singapore are most booked packages comparing to all other Asian holiday destination. Here are some reasons:
