The Chinese New Year is celebrated in the month of February and is also a great place to have some fun. This is a busy month of year as thousands of Singaporeans prepare for 42 days of celebration and flock into Chinatown. Seeing the Chingay Parade during this festive celebration is once-in-a-lifetime experience.

A great way to sight see in Singapore is by riding the ferries. The ferries travel from Singapore to the Riau Islands and Johor. Taking the ferries will give any visitor a great feel of the Singaporean culture and life. You can also cruise along the Singapore River in a bumboat. This way, you can appreciate the majestic skyscraper buildings and view of the Singapore River. Bumboats will take you to the unoccupied islands in Singapore for a dip in the lagoons or a perfect picnic.

Nothing makes a visitor appreciate Singapore more than taking a stroll into Chinatown. This is a great way to get familiar with the many shops and restaurants that fill the country. You can visit the Chinatown museums and parks for a delightful day.

The Singapore Zoo is a must-see for all visitors and is home to both exotic and domestic animals. Visitors can go bird watching along the Jurong Bird Park where you can also walk the Botanical Gardens and have a nice, relaxing visit.

What made Singapore popular in the first place are the many shopping centres, malls, quaint shops and expensive boutiques. The country is basically a shopper’s heaven as the prices are low due to the low tax and tariff as well as the competition.
