Singapore offers a rich multicultural experience through Chinese, Malay and Indian communities living in harmony while retaining distinct individuality in terms of customs, food, religion and language.  Visitors can embark on a heritage trail and enjoy the sights and sounds at various cultural precincts, notably Chinatown, Little India and Bugis Village the old Malay district.
Nature lovers can look forward to Singapore's countless landscaped gardens, parks and wildlife reserves.  Jurong Bird Park is a 50-acre sanctuary to an enormous collection of bird life from around the world.  Singapore Zoo is known for having visitors experience close encounters with animals roaming freely in open habitats.  Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve is a sustainable eco-tourism center and home to a wide variety of wildlife and lush flora and fauna.  Labrador Nature Reserve is an oasis of calm that also contains historical World War II relics and secret tunnels that were left hidden and forgotten until recently rediscovered in 2001.
