Tourism and Travel

This site offers tips and advice on holidays in and off Singapore lisitng the attractions of Singapore and the region. Holidays from Singapore means escaping the urban jungle  on adventure trip in the region, discover nearby diving destinations and explore the rainforests while jungle trekking.   The typical expatriate boards a plane as often as others board a bus. Expat children travel the world and often have a better knowledge of international flight routes than of their home city's underground network.   According to many surveys traveling is the expatriate's favorite pastime - surely enhanced by the remarkable environment of the cities in which we live and work. If it is a short weekend trip to a remote beach or a well planned adventure tour, this section should assist you in your research and preparation.   We are not aiming to compete with the leading travel web sites. We rather want to cater for the typical needs of expatriates in Singapore and for your visiting friends and family members. As many of us have never been in a real jungle before, we are giving valuable information on how to prepare for such an adventure or on the rules to follow in the jungle in the section Adventure Travel. In Expat Visitor Support we help you to cope with the flood of visitors you can expect once you have settled in Singapore.
