If you are a fan of Far Eastern city life, you will love Singapore. It might be the smallest country in Southeast Asia, but it has a big spirit. The Republic’s five ideals are depicted on their national flag: democracy, peace, equality, justice and progress. Singapore consists of 63 islands. Here, you can go from shopping at Marina Square and Sentosa Island to the beach in a matter of moments. Treat yourself to a visit to the Como Shambhala Spa, and indulge in some of the oldest methods of spiritual and physical growth. Eating out in Singapore is also a delight, with food to suit every palette. For the most eclectic mix of restaurants, head to the Dempsey Road enclave.
