Vacation rentals in Singapore
Although Singapore only covers the approximate area of Hamburg, you will find holiday accommodation literally everywhere. Due to the large number of people, however, it can be difficult to find an entire vacation rental - but not impossible. Nevertheless the variant of the vacation home or apartment is to be found substantially more frequently. But they are often very modern and luxuriously equipped.
Holidays in Singapore
Location and orientation
Although Singapore is considered a city and island state, the area includes one main island, three larger islands and 58 small, partly uninhabited islands. Singapore is located at the southernmost tip of the Malay Peninsula, virtually surrounded by Malaysia and Indonesia. To the west, the road from Malakka nestles against Singapore, which is one of the busiest waterways in the world.
The young population often speaks "single English", a dialect that greatly simplifies English and mixes it with words from Chinese or Malay.
Top 3 travel tips
Of course, shopping is one of the main attractions of Singapore. And the "heart of commerce" is without doubt the wonderful Orchard Road in the Central Business District. Here, one High-End Mall follows the other and all well-known luxury brands are of course represented with their own flagstores. It will be a bit cheaper and hipper in the Bugis quarter, while you can find exceptional souvenirs in China Town.2. To swim on one of the small islands
If you want to escape the heat and hustle and bustle of the "capital" and cool off in wonderfully clear waters, a trip to one of the smaller islands is worthwhile. On St. John's Island, Lazarus Osland, Kusu Island and the Sister Islands you will find blossom-white beaches, delicious gastronomy, barbecue areas and of course shower and changing rooms.3. The nature reserve Bukit Timah
Once the main island of Singapore was completely covered with rainforest. There is not much left of it, but with the Bukit Timah Reserve, named after the highest elevation of Singapore (163 meters), at least a large part could be preserved. Four hiking trails - partly over bridges and footbridges to avoid disturbing nature and animals - lead through the reserve, where monkeys, birds and many other animal inhabitants can romp about freely. By the way, if you are looking for a very special vacation rental or apartment, you will find it in the surrounding area.
