Singapore Cruise Port

Posted on Wednesday, April 11, 2012 |
Ships to Singapore dock at the purpose-built Singapore Cruise Centre, which makes getting on and off the ship simple and easy. Located in Keppel Harbour, it is about 15 minutes from the city centre and right next to one of the largest shopping malls in Singapore. Due to open in 2013 is an even bigger and better cruise terminal, the International Cruise Terminal, which will accomodate the world's largest ships.

Singapore is truly a world city. It is hugely multicultural, modern and a leader in commerce, culture, tourism and numerous other fields. Singapore can be considered somewhat sterile, as it is crazily clean and tidy, as well as having a very low crime rate, but in fact despite the extreme order it is a fascinating melting pot. If you have a few hours to spare and want to chill out, just sit in a cafe and watch the whole world go by! The city is in fact a city-state, and is on an island connected to mainland Malaysia by bridges, and the population is made up of Malays, Chinese, Indians, Filipinos, Thais and a huge number of other ethnic groups.

Shopping is highly rated in Singapore, and Orchard Road is the spot for it. For a more natural pastime, the Botanic Gardens are a great place for a walk. Art galleries, museums and other forms of entertainment abound. There is also a zoo, a Universal Studios and various other theme parks, and neverending bars, restaurants, clubs and just things to do in general.
