Tourism in Singapore is a major industry and attracts millions
of tourists each year.[1] Its cultural attraction can be attributed to its cultural
diversity that reflects its colonial history and Chinese, Malay, Indian and Arab
ethnicities. It is also environmentally friendly, and maintains natural and
heritage conservation programs. As English is the dominant one of its four
official languages, it is generally easier for tourists to understand when
speaking to the local population of the country, for example, when shopping.
Transport in Singapore exhaustively covers most, if not all public venues in
Singapore, which increases convenience for tourists. This includes the
well-known Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) system.

The
Orchard Road district, which is dominated by multi-story shopping
centres and hotels, can be considered the center of tourism in Singapore.
Other popular tourist attractions include the Singapore Zoo and its Night
Safari, which allows people to explore Asian, African and American habitats
at night without any visible barriers between guests and the wild animals. The
Singapore Zoo has embraced the 'open zoo' concept whereby animals are
kept in enclosures, separated from visitors by hidden dry or wet moats,
instead of caging the animals. Jurong Bird Park is another zoological garden
centred around birds, which is dedicated towards exposing the public to as
much species and varieties of birds from around the world as possible,
including a flock of one thousand flamingos.
The tourist island of Sentosa,
which attracts more than 5 million visitors a year, is located in the south of
Singapore, consists of about 20-30 landmarks, such as Fort Siloso, which
was built as a fortress to defend against the Japanese during World War II.
Guns from the World War II era can be seen at Fort Siloso, from a mini-sized
to a 16 pound (7 kg) gun. Recently, the island has built the Tiger Sky Tower,
which allows visitors to view the whole of Sentosa, as well as the Sentosa
Luge, a small one- or two-person sled on which one sleighs supine and
feet-first. Steering is done by shifting the weight or pulling straps attached to
the sled's runners. Singapore will have two integrated resorts with casinos in
2010, one at Marina Bay and the other at Sentosa which the government
announced during a parliament session on April 18, 2005. Visits to these
attractions can be purchased online at various sites including isango and

Singapore has a variety of parks and projects which often feature its natural
tropical environment.

The
Singapore Zoo and Night Safari, allows people to explore Asian,
African and South American habitats at night, without any visible barriers
between guests and the wild animals.

Singapore has its Singapore Botanical Gardens open to the public that is
52 hectares large, and includes the National Orchid collection with over 3000
types of orchids growing.

Recently the government has also been promoting the
Sungei Buloh
Wetlands Reserve
as a quiet getaway from the stress of modern life.

The Bukit Timah Nature Reserve is an extensive nature reserve which covers
much of the Bukit Timah Hill, and is the only remaining place where primary
rainforest still exists on the island.

The
Jurong Bird Park includes extensive specimens of exotic bird life from
around the world, including a flock of one thousand flamingos.

Pulau Ubin, an island offshore Singapore, is slowly becoming a popular
tourist spot. The nature wildlife there is left undisturbed.
