#5 of 9 in Nature in Singapore
Island Nature / Park
Take a trip out to Kusu Island on the Southern Islands, situated around 5.6 km (3.5 mi) from the country's main island. Its name translates to "Tortoise Island," based on a popular myth that the land was made by a magical tortoise that turned itself into an island in order to rescue two shipwrecked sailors. The name still holds true today because of the tortoise sanctuary located here. Hike to ancient places of worship across the rugged, lush landscape. Beaches on the island offer room for relaxation and swimming. Use our Singapore trip itinerary maker to add Kusu Island and other attractions to your Singapore vacation plans.

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
