When you begin you're exploration of Singapore, don't forget that it's just as famous for its incredible surroundings as it is for its modern-city status. Bukit Timah Nature Reserve is full of amazing wildlife, while Jurong Bird Park gives you the chance to see some of the most incredible species of bird in the world. There's even a zoo which offers nighttime safaris. And while on the subject of nature, be sure to check out the National Orchid Garden - you won't believe the range and colors of orchids on display here. Of course there's plenty of culture to enjoy too. Head over to the Thian Hock Keng Temple or spend some time in Singapore’s many museums.
