Step-by-Step Singapore reveals this tropical city-state through a selection of clearly laid-out walks and tours, complemented by beautiful, full-color pictures, an authoritative narrative voice, and a wealth of practical information, all in a compact package.
The guide starts with Recommended Tours, suggesting the book’s best tours for foodies, families, and wildlife fans, among others.
In the Overview, an engaging introduction reveals essential background information on Singaporean culture, geography, and lifestyle, plus the lowdown on food, drink, shopping, nightlife, and local history. This provides all the background information needed to set the walks and tours in context.
The Walks and Tours section features 18 irresistible self-guided routes, from the historical buildings of the Civic District, such as Raffles Hotel, and the attractions of downtown Marina Bay and the Singapore River quays, to glitzy Orchard Road and characterful Little India, with excursions to Sentosa’s theme parks and the Singapore Zoo at Mandai. All show step by step how to get the most out of the destination, with something for every budget, taste and trip length. Each of the tours has a clear, easy-to-follow map, hand-picked places to eat and drink en route, great insider tips and informative feature boxes. All this makes it simple for the reader to find the perfect tour for the time they have to spare.
The final section of the book is the Directory, incorporating a user-friendly, fact-packed A to Z of practical information, plus select hotel, restaurant and nightlife listings, which will lead the reader to the best that Singapore has to offer.
