What to know before you fly to Singapore?
In 1824 Britain acquired sovereignty over Singapore; a control that remained in place until the country declared separation from the UK in 1963, with total independence in 1965. As such the colonial legacy remains strong within the Asian state. To explore the British influence, wander through the colonial district, also known as Riverside or Civic, to explore the Old Parliament Building which is now an arts centre, City Hall, a Cenotaph memorial, St Andrew's Cathedral and the former Supreme Court Building. The hotel, Raffles, epitomises the British influence and is definitely worth a visit; consider staying on to enjoy a Singapore Sling.
Modern Singapore boasts distinct neighbourhoods all deserving exploration. Experience Chinese culture in Chinatown, sample Indian delicacies in Little India and hunt down incredible fabrics on Arab Street.
