SHOPPING IN THE "FINE CITY"
Jokes about the "Fine City" of Singapore and its strict rules trip off the tongue. And yet the severe penalties for littering are noticeably reflected in the quality of the cityscape. Singapore is one of the cleanest places in the world. The city offers a mix of futuristic architecture and more traditional elements. After your language class, why not visit one of the excellent restaurants in Singapore's Riverside district. They are lit up beautifully in the evenings and offer fantastic views of the River. The city – and Orchard Road in particular – is also a veritable paradise for shoppers, while the recreation park on Sentosa Island is the perfect place to swim and relax under the palm trees.
