Singapore is a 'fine' city.


This is not an unusual term for a person who has been to Singapore.
Known for its clean roads, impressive skylines, multilingual and friendly people, Singapore has its own charm- from religious temples to colorful night life. Recently, Singapore has gained a status of being the world’s second largest casino gambling market.
Many Singaporeans, though not all are bilingual. Most speak Singlish (Singaporean Colloquial English with a heavy accent) and other language. Most commonly Mandarin Chinese, Malay or Tamil.
Singapore is served by the only airport – Changi International Airport, located in the eastern part of the country from where people can easily commute to the down town through different means of transport systems. Jump into a cab or ride an MRT or SMRT or just pay 9 SGD to be transferred to your hotel on a bus by a locally owned Ground Transfer Desk which could be found in every terminal of the airport.
Singapore’s MRT system is the easiest way to travel around the country, as you could reach almost every corner of the country in a short time. 
Singapore’s China town is an ethnic neighborhood featuring distinctly Chinese cultural elements and a historically concentrated Chinese population.  Located within the larger district of Outram, Chinatown has its own MRT station which makes this easily accessible.
Sentosa is a popular island resort in Singapore, visited by some five million people a year. Attractions include a 2 km long sheltered beach, Fort Siloso, two golf courses, two five-star hotels, and the Resorts World Sentosa, featuring the theme park Universal Studios Singapore.
The country has a lot to offer to its visitors in every corner, if you have rode the 135m tall London Eye, Singapore has its own 165m tall Singapore Flyer offering a rewarding  view of the entire city  , including the Indonesian islands of Batam and Bintan, as well as Johor, Malaysia.
Marina Bay Sands is an integrated resort fronting Marina Bay in Singapore. Developed by Las Vegas Sands, it is billed as the world's most expensive standalone casino property at S$8 billion, including cost of the prime land. Stretching longer than the Eiffel tower laid down or four and a half of an Airbus A380 Jumbo Jets, with an impressive 12400 square meters of space.
A must see for all travelers, the Night Safari showcases nocturnal creatures using special lighting that allows them to go about their business while visitors cruise by on the park’s guided trams. You also can get a closer look by taking one of the walking trails. The "Creatures of the Night" show, a fire dance, numerous dining options and a fish spa (where small doctor fish nibble dead skin off immersed feet) round out the evening entertainment.
Singapore has a lot more to offer, I have just mentioned about some of the major attractions of the city, doesn’t matter what you are looking for, Singapore will offer all that to you with an open heart.
