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.

  • EXCELLENT beyond the doubt museum and city planning gallery. The Singapore city center and whole island models are very impressive. After seeing these models one will understand that Singapore's 5.5m population is housed at less than 1/3 of the area - the rest is dedicated to parks, industry and military facilities. If you are interested in urban planning and want to understand how Singapore become what it is in last several decades - this place is must stop.
  • Visiting Singapore? This is a extremely good "First thing to do in Singapore" as it gives you an idea of the overall growth of the country through the ages and how many diverse cultures co-exist in Singapore. Added plus is the Maxwell food court located off the road to the URA centre. Free guided tours are available for last Saturdays of all months.
  • Fantastic exhibits on the past, present and future development of Singapore. Expect stunning scale models of the city, interactive maps, audiovisual presentations and lots of info and photography. Great example of interaction between institutions and the public.
  • Worth a stop in the beginning of your trip here to get a scope of the city. Well put together and free admission.
  • A great experience through the history of how Singapore was transformed from a small tropical island into a cosmopolitan city. Free entry and really insightful. I was so caught up in the material, I read almost everything - took me just over 2 hours. Engaging content on how Singapore maximized the usage of it's limited land - including reclaiming land, digging underground and creating multi-use features. Highly recommended!!
