Take an hour flight to the west; you will arrive in Changi International Airport, the airport of Singapore. Singapore really is a magical place where Malays, Indians, Chinese and many other people live together in peace and harmony. Read on to find more about this small, but beautiful country.

This country has world class transportation facility, the Mass Rapid Transit, or MRT. MRT is a passenger train service with stations all over the country. It is very modern and comfortably air-conditioned. It has a travel information system which provides real time information on train arrival times and destinations. Eating and drinking are prohibited while you are on MRT. Violating this rule is subject to SGD 1000 fine! Phew ...

Near the Merlion statue, the symbol of Singapore, stands the ultra modern Esplanade Theaters on the Bay. Its staircases are not only beautifully designed but also accessible for wheelchairs. Located at the Marina Bay, this dome roofed building is a place which presents local and international performances. Here you can watch the Mosaic Music Festival that is usually held in March. The Esplanade, also named after the prickly tropical fruit "the Durian" by local people, is also equipped with a mall, food outlets, and a library. So now you can imagine what you can do at this place.

If you have more time, take a trip to Sentosa Island. It is a popular recreational playground which is half a kilometer south of Singapore. You need to pay SGD 45 to have a package that includes Island admission, 2 way Cable car, and several attractions. The cable car is 90 meters above water and tropical rainforest.

The Dolphin Lagoon, the Underwater World, and the Cinemania are the places that you should visit. You can also see the musical fountain show.
