Singapore is strategically located at the southern tip of the Malaysian peninsula, and consists of the island of Singapore and some 63 islets within its territorial waters.
The Central Business District spreads across both the central & southern parts of the island, boasting striking high-rise structures. Singapore's cityscape looks magnificent, particularly at night with its brilliantly lit buildings. Offshore, there appears to be another city all lit up because of the many ships anchored there - Singapore is one of the busiest seaports in the world.
Many of the city's attractions are clustered closely together. Orchard Road, the shoppers' haven, is located in the northern part of the city center. Chinatown, where you'll find Boat Quay, is just to the southeast of Orchard Road, while Little India is northeast. Sentosa Island, with its many amusements, is directly to the southwest of the city center.
