Flights to Singapore
Singapore is a sovereign city-state which consists of one major island and several small islets in Southeast Asia, with Malaysia and Indonesia as its closest neighbors. Despite the small size, Singapore is an internationally renowned player in the fields of commerce, education, tourism, and culture. The main language of the nation is English with other Asian tongues like Mandarin Chinese, Tamil, and Malay in the mix. Singapore is also considered an international tax haven and is rated on the high end for factors like life expectancy, safety, and housing.
Airports in Singapore
At first glance, it seems like there are several airports in Singapore. Most of these are military bases or charter airports, with most of the local and international traffic hosted by Changi Airport. The roster includes a number of military airbases
- Singapore Changi Airport (SIN). As the nation's major international airport, your flight will likely be landing here. The airport is also home to Changi Military Base, which represents two of the five air bases in Singapore.
- Seletar Airport (XSB). Originally an air base, then the country’s international airport, Seletar no longer has a regular schedule of commercial flights and only offers private charters to regional destinations.
- Paya Lebar Air Base (QPG). Formerly yet another international airport, QPG has been strictly a military airport since 1980. It now houses an air force museum and hosts an air show annually in May.
Flights from Canada require at least one stop to traverse the globe, usually in Tokyo, Hong Kong, or Taipei. There are no Canadian airlines represented in Singapore, even in SIN, but a sophisticated network of connections and partnerships can get you across the globe. Singapore’s transportation network stretches to virtually every major city on the planet, and SIN is one of the biggest and busiest airports in Southeast Asia.
What to see and do in Singapore.
Tourism is yet another area where Singapore makes a mark. The country attracts more tourists annually than the whole population of the country, with over 16 million every year. And there are some very good reasons. Here are some of the exotic and unique attractions in Singapore that exist nowhere else on the planet.
- The Orchard Road District. Virtually all of the visitors to Singapore pass through this famous neighborhood, which is composed of upscale hotels and state of the art, multi-level shopping centers. The rules governing duty-free and customs declarations throughout the country make it an ideal place to shop, and most of the city’s hottest nightlife is located here as well.
- Jurong Bird Park, Singapore Zoo, River Safari and Night Safari. When you want to escape from the glamorous downtown core and get back to nature, head to one of many natural preserves throughout town that are “open concept” designs. Rather than being caged, the environment is preserved, with moats, rivers, and other natural features used to separate visitors from animal life.
- Fort Siloso. It’s not only modern wonders that you can see in Singapore but also history and culture. This island fort dates from WW2 and has been preserved as a historic site and museum, complete with mini-sized to 16-pound guns.
