Esplanade : Theatres on the Bay : The architectural icon with its distinctive twin shells is sited within Singapore's civic district, just by Marina Bay at the mouth of the Singapore River. Esplanade comprises two large halls: the 2,000 seat theatre and the 1,600 seat Concert Hall, complimented by two smaller studios, an outdoor theatre as well as a mall. The two domes housing the Theatre and Concert Hall were designed in glass, to convey a sense of openness. To keep the centre cool in the tropics, over 7,000 pieces of aluminium sunshades together with double-glazed laminated glass were installed on a steel truss frame to form the cladding that makes the centre such a striking architectural icon against Singapore's city skyline. The spiky cladding has since earned the centre the popular nickname of a beloved local fruit, the Durian.
Merlion Park : The Merlion was first designed as an emblem for the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) in 1964 - the lion head with a fish body resting on a crest of waves quickly became Singapore's icon to the rest of the world.
Little India : Be ready to be greeted by the strong, heady scent of spices and jasmine garlands, followed by the treasure trove of silverware, brassware, ethnic jewelry and colorful silk saris, dazzling to behold.
Chinatown : Singapore's Chinatown evolved around 1812 when the first Chinese junk arrived from Xiamen, Fujian province in China. The passengers, all men, set up home around the south of the singapore River which is known today as Telok Ayer.
