Singapore is one of the most industrialized regions of Asia with a bustling street life and a skyline that amazes all. It is one of the financial centers of the world with stunning skyscrapers, many shopping malls and modern as well as traditional houses. It offers anything from cheap vendor stalls, open air entertainment to expensive five star dining and luxury opera concerts. It is an island of expatriates and workaholics with also many regions of extremely poverty for those who didn't make it.
Some of the highlights Singapore has to offer are walking through some of its cultural heritages such as China Town, Little India or the tempting restaurants around Boat Quay. The temples Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Temple, Sultan Mosque and St Andrew's Cathedral are all worth a visit and show Singapore's wide cultural diversity. This busy and crowded city couldn't have received such as status if it didn't have any parks such as Bukit Tima Nature Reserve and the Zoological and Botanical Gardens. During the weekends there are many tours that offer trips to the nearby islands St Johns, Pulau Kusu and the Sister Islands just for sunbathing. Remember, its climate is the same yeararound meaning that once the sun is out it can be nice at the islands. Other interesting things to see might be Orchard Road, Clarke Quay and the island Sentosa.
There are a few islands off the coast of Singapore where some nice diving can be done, but with such a busy port it is not surprising that visibilities are not good. On top of that, currents are extremely strong and many places can't be dived at all. Best time to dive here is between October and April when visibilities tend to reach five meters but during the hot season you might be lucky to see your buddy. However, the waters are rich and filled with macro marine life but you do have to look for it. If you really want to do some diving, we strongly suggest taking a weekend trip to one of the islands of Johor Marine Parks (Pulau Aur, Pulau Sibu) or Pulau Tioman. If you have more than a weekend it is worth exploring dive destinations even further away.
