As big fans of the Cousteau and Zissou Odysseys, we’re regulars at the Singapore Aquarium. Officially it’s called the South East Asian (SEA) Aquarium, it’s a mouthful, so most people just call it the Singapore Aquarium. The Open Ocean Habitat lets you experience scuba diving from the comfort of your flip flaps
If you want to see fantastic beasts up close and show your little ones, nature’s little ones, it’s hard to beat Singapore’s zoo.The Singapore zoo is a kid and animal friendly immersive experience. This 26 hectare wildlife park is the home of some 3000 animals. It’s like walking in a lush forest teeming with wildlife.
We don’t recommend using a dinghy to waddle your way to Tonle Sap Lake from Siem Reap (negotiating the foodgates will be troublesome). The easiest way to Cambodia's Great Lake takes about half an hour by road to the floating village and docks of Chnong Kneas.
The National Orchid Garden in Singapore houses more than 60,000 plants. Celebrities, from Jacky Chan to Nelson Mandela have orchid hybrids named after them.
The Singapore Botanic Gardens are a World Heritage Site, a must-see attraction for visitors of the city, and a beloved urban park for running, picnicking, playing ball with the kids or learning about biodiversity conservation.
You won't have to go very far in Siem Reap to get pampered in luxury. There are plenty of high end spas for toe to head treatment in style. Step into a world of personal service, attention to details, subdued atmosphere and heavenly relaxation.
Chicken rice is so popular in Singapore, you won’t have to look for it. It’ll come looking for you! The rice soaked in the juices of the chicken is the best. It’s on the oily side, nothing like fried foods, but you won’t need lip balm after your meal.
Get pampered in Siem Reap, fruit baskets and champagne included. Mid-range spas offer massage, body and facial treatments rivaling some of the higher end hotels, but at a fraction of the cost.
The Malay Heritage Centre, located in Kampong Glam, showcases the rich culture of Singaporean Malay heritage. Whether you’re fond of priceless antiques or like interacting with people (or screens), the Malay Heritage Centre has plenty to entertain the less than jaded visitor.
Cute cafés abound around Arab Street and Kampong Glam. Pick from one of our favourites to chit chat, read the daily papers or just watch the world go by.
