Singapore

Singapore is many things - it is at the crossroads of Asia, and it perhaps the most westernised as well. It is a small country, known by tourists and travellers for it clean streets, its shopping and its nightlife. The hard working locals can be seen out jogging and keeping themselves fit at night.

Get out of the centre of the city and you'll discover that there is much to love for an outdoor type. Small tracts of forest, reservoirs, gardens, zoos, as well as islands that offer camping, kayaking and mountain biking are all there for exploring.
