Known as the Lion city, the Garden city and the Red Dot, Singapore is one of the most popular tourist destinations in South-East Asia. So if you’re thinking of a short holiday not too far from India, look no further than Singapore – the dynamic city-state, a short flight away from all major cities in India. A heady combination of Chinese, Indian, Malay and Western influences, Singapore is truly a cultural melting pot. Delicious food, high street shopping, contemporary arts etc– find all these at one place.
