Yeah, i know this is the oz/nz forum, but am stopping over firstly in dubai then singapore both 2nights n 1 day.
what is best to see/do/eat out etc??? am on backpacker budget tho, but whats best in such a short time??
would be REALLY greatful u any of you could giv any tips info n ideas.
I enjoyed Sentosa Island, particularly at night where they have the laser show. Definitely go over there on the cable car, the view of the shipping is amazing.
Clarke Quay was great too, tonnes of good value eateries and nice pubs and close to the major hotels.
Make sure you spend a day in Chinatown too, we didn't get to spend much time there and that is my chief regret. So many stalls are trinkets and everything you could imagine.
I suggest you check out the Singapore zoo and in particular the night safari.
Second the suggestion for Sentosa Island.
Arab st. and Little India are also great areas with markets and colourful.
