Yachting in Singapore

Singapore, or "Lion City" as locals call it, is located at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. The island city-state is connected to the mainland by 2 bridges: the Second Link Bridge and the Johor Causeway Bridge. This is one of the most exotic states in Southeast Asia and around the world, because here the attention of tourists is presented to the attention of tourists built in accordance with the ancient Chinese teachings of feng shui futuristic skyscrapers, "Disneyland for adults", the tallest Ferris wheel in the world, "City of Prohibitions », Zoos with wild animals, the cleanest beaches of Sentosa and other attractions.

The local climate pleases with the stability of the weather - the difference between winter and summer temperatures does not exceed 2 degrees Celsius. Due to the equatorial location of the territory of the state, there is high humidity and frequent rains, so do not forget to take an umbrella with you before leaving. The best time to visit is from May to October, when heavy rains are rare. In summer, you can see the sights without hiding from the rain.

The list of Singapore's attractions is impressive and is due to the state's status as the largest business, commercial and financial center in the world. Note that the country is not very suitable for a beach holiday and even on Sentosa, where the best beaches of Singapore are located, you are unlikely to be able to relax in a quiet and peaceful environment: the swimming area is fenced, and in the line of sight there is a huge industrial port with hundreds of tankers on a raid. Basically, Singapore is eager to visit those who have already visited many exotic places, as well as businessmen - many business exhibitions are held here.

What to watch

Singapore is the capital of the island nation, a very dynamic and modern city that amazes visitors with its contrasts. In the Central District, rich in historical and cultural attractions, you can go to the colonial part, where you can visit the Anglican Cathedral of St. Andrew and the Good Shepherd, as well as the Parliament. Experts from the 2yachts team also advise you to look at the world famous Marina Bay with a futuristic hotel. One of the most prominent sights of the city, the Victorian building "Impress Place Building" was built in the middle of the 19th century - today it houses a museum, restaurant and art galleries.

Among the popular places for tourists to visit:

  • Supreme Court building;
  • Church of St. Gregor the Prelate (the oldest in the country);
  • Fort Canning Hill Christian Cemetery;
  • The Victoria Theater and Concert Hall, built in 1862;
  • Municipality;
  • St. Joseph Institute;
  • A statue of Sir Stamford Raffles, one of the founders of the city;
  • Botanical Garden;
  • Orchad Road is home to some of the country's most expensive restaurants, bars, hotels and nightlife.

Chinatown is one of the largest districts of the city, always very noisy and crowded. Everything here reminds of Chinese traditions, including the "Chinese Baroque" buildings decorated with advertising banners, which house many cheap hotels, eateries and shops - where you can buy everything your heart desires, from gourmet shark fins to swallow nests, for a small fee.

Little India is an urban area where trade is always boiling. Here you can select and purchase aromatic spices, jewelry and beautiful traditional sarees.

In the city, you can not only have a good time watching and walking around the sights, but also have fun doing shopping. From the abundance of goods for sale, literally "eyes run up", first of all, it is worth noting the stores of premium brands - Prada, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, etc. In addition, you can always find products from local brands that have already become iconic, such as CYC shirts or Tessere leather bags. More than Orchad Road, the only concentration of expensive boutiques is the Marina Bay Sands Hotel.

You can pick up clothes and accessories of democratic brands in shops on Bagis Village Street, here you can easily bargain. It is more profitable to shop during the period of the only sale in Singapore - the Grand Sale, which begins at the end of May and lasts until mid-summer, when prices in stores are reduced by 55-70%.

Natural attractions and attractions

Fans of exotic entertainment will appreciate a visit to the Botanical Garden, founded more than 1.5 centuries ago. Here, in a relatively small area, representatives of flora from all over the world are gathered, and the number of animals living in the zoo (including representatives of rare and endangered species) is approaching 2.5 thousand. With children you can go to the Jurong Bird Park, where you can watch toucans, flamingos, giants, penguins and other exotic inhabitants of various climatic zones of the planet. And you can see the life of animals active at night in the "Night Safari" and "River Safari" parks. In addition, the local oceanarium and "Butterfly Park" are always at the disposal of tourists.

Заполнить свободное между посещениями экскурсионных объектов можно катаясь на аттракционах, в Сингапуре их огромное количество, чего только стоит колесо обозрения высотой 165 м. Испытать удовольствие от экстрима можно в веревочном парке MegaZip, а в волшебном парке развлечений Universal Studios можно посетить головокружительные аттракционы для детей и взрослых.

Kitchen

In Singapore, tourists can sample gourmet cuisine, delighting tourists with an amazing combination of Chinese, Indian, European and Malay food traditions. Ceylon and Middle Eastern influences add an original flavor to local dishes. Note that the food prepared by Singaporean chefs is very unusual and tasty, which can be confirmed by tens of thousands of gourmets from all over the world who leave here well-fed and satisfied with the choice and quality of dishes. Hainanese chicken is a striking Chinese dish served here, while thosai tortillas, tandoori chicken and roti prata pancakes can be considered gastronomic gifts from India. Meat “ayam-buah-keluak” and kebabs “sat” can be considered as Malay “newcomers” in the Singaporean menu.

Singaporeans consider food to be the main way of converging cultures and therefore literally obsessed with it, usually eating at street eateries that resemble something like European food courts. Here you can have a hearty and cheap lunch or dinner: any national dish can be tasted for 2-5 SGD. Seafood lovers can be advised by the local fish restaurants with a wide selection of treats prepared from the fresh catch, and excellent cocktail and wine lists are always available in the local bars.

Yachting

The main ports of Singapore are Changi and Port of Singapore (the port of entry to the country). For those arriving in the country after long voyages of yachtsmen, the city of Singapore is a convenient stop to put the boat in order. Raffles Marina and Changi will provide you with a high level of technical service, while the cost of repair workshops is very high, and therefore it seems more economical to contact the Malaysian shipyards.

A special pleasure is given to walks along the coast on a yacht. At the end of your journey, you can stop near Sentosa Island, where you can watch the grandiose "Songs of the Sea" laser show from the yacht, with colorful projections on water screens and fireworks of fire and water jets flying up into the sky.
