Things to do

Don’t miss the Singapore Zoo and night Safari.

Try High Tea at
Raffles
, or Compass Rose at the top of the Western Stamford Hotel.

For history buffs – try the history museum at Sentosa for an excellent diarama of Singaporian history including the Second World War in Singapore. Similarly a visit to the Battle Box Museum (the British WW2 command centre) in central Singapore is very worth while.

If you're in Singapore for a couple of days & don't want to do the usual "touristy" things, pop in over at the" Singapore Airlines Flying Club". It's a little club that's located in Seletar Airport (that's right - Seletar - not Changi) & they welcome visitors. Their time is spent conducting training for the PPL, & these students  come from all walks of life - not just SIA employees as the name of the Club might suggest. Visitors are welcome, there's a little bar corner for flying talk & the like. And if you're a flier, you're welcome to join for a day membership & the guys will be glad to arrange a short flight around, aircraft availability permitting.
