While Singapore is known first and foremost as a financial centre and world city, it has also received much-deserved recognition as a 'garden city'. The island offers many options for visitors beyond the air-conditioned shopping malls and museums in the city. Well-manicured parks and gardens offer respite from urban stresses, nature reserves takes you back to a time before modern Singapore was founded and the isle was covered with lowland tropical forests, and world-class sporting and recreational facilities are common from end to end. Beyond the main island, Singapore's offshore island are the perfect destination for a short getaway and retreat from the city centre.
Singapore's outdoor offerings are a refreshing change and allow visitors to explore a different side to the city, so don't hesitate to step off the beaten track and appreciate the great outdoors!
