The island city-state of Singapore in southern Malaysia is easily becoming a can't-miss bucket list destination. The tropical weather is enough to capture one's attention, but the options available to visitors—in addition to residents—is the drawing card. It's a blend of history and modernity. Explore the culture of neighborhoods like Chinatown or go shopping for upscale items along Orchard Road. Discover a theme park dedicated to Chinese mythology or take in the Singapore Grand Prix; museums and art galleries abound and dining options vary from respected street hawkers to three-star fine dining. There is plenty of nightlife and events for the single population and a myriad of activities for families to do together.
