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.

  • If it is the same Padang as when I visited in the 80's and lived there in the 90's, it will have the old cricket club at the top. OK it is just an open field. However if you are walking down from Raff...  more »
  • It's just an open field in the middle of the city centre. There's not much things to be seen here unless there were some celebration or other programs held at the field.  more »

  • the only open greenfield in City area. have a slow quiet stroll on the side of Esplanade, or watch some friendly games of football or rugby on the field can be quite idyllic and relaxing. if there were some long benches along the side of Padang, that would be perfect
  • A time past. I was on my way to the Victoria Concert Hall when I took a hurried picture of this scene. As you may already know, this is the Padang, a big field of great historical significance. You may recall that the first ever National Day Parade being was held there in 1966, and in most recent memory, the Singapore's Golden Jubilee Year as well. Since 1995, it has been planned that the NDP would be held there for every five years, the main venue for that major event is at Marina Bay Floating Stadium (formerly at the old National Stadium).
  • Amazing location and nicely cared for fields.
  • Great views, esp. at dusk
  • Central Singapore with lots of activities. F1 night racing is here too
