When the city was founded in 1819, it was intended that each cultural group would have its own quarter. A walking tour of the central city reveals the cultural diversity of Singapore in its numerous Buddhist temples, Islamic mosques, cathedrals and Hindu temples, which contribute to the unique flair of this city.

The influence of the respective cultural communities can still be recognized in Chinatown, Arab Street and Serangoon Road. Don't pass up an opportunity to visit the traditional evening market in busy, colorful Chinatown. Arab Street is at the heart of the Arabic quarter. The quarter's landmark is the golden dome of the Sultan Mosque. The Indian cultural group lives in the area around Serangoon Road. The important sights here are the Sri Veeramakalimman Temple and the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Hall. On Padang Square visitors may feel that they have traveled back to colonial days.

The city structures and streets restored in the traditional style provide an appealing contrast to the ultramodern shopping centers in Marine Square, Orchard Road and Raffles City. No trip to Singapore would be complete without visiting the world famous Raffles Hotel. In the Long Bar you can order an original "Singapore Sling".

West of the city center are the Chinese and Japanese Gardens, connected by a richly decorated bridge that is 60 meters long. Right next to the gardens is the Jurong Bird Park on Jurong Hill. The park features a wide variety of Southeast Asian bird species. In the world's largest bird enclosure, visitors will be amazed by the free flying birds. The Botanical Garden, also located on the city's west side, features intact virgin forest. From here, well-marked trails lead through lush tropical vegetation up to the highest point on the island.
