Singapore

Singapore, officially the Republic of Singapore, is much more than skyscrapers and shopping malls. Kids can discover the cultural heritage of Straits Chinese, Indians, Malays and British as you wander through colorful neighborhoods. The island also has large nature reserves, brilliant tropical vegetation, and excellent wildlife parks.

Tip: Singapore is chock-a-block with festivals - Chinese New Year, Haria Raya Puasa for the end of Ramadan, Vesak Day, a Buddhist holiday, Dragon Boat Race, Mid-Autumn Festival and Mooncake Fair, Nine Emperor Gods Festival, the Hindu festival of Deepavali (Diwali).
Fun food
Singapore has tons of street food that kids will enjoy (stick to hawker stalls rated "A" or "B.") Try Hainanese Chicken Rice, slices of steamed chicken servied with rice, dim sum, char shiu bao (BBQ pork buns), and satays. For young vegetarians and vegans, South Indian fast food outlets such as Ananda Bhavan or Komala Vilas have mild vegetarian meals (and they deliver). Also, the tropical fresh fruits are amazing, Asian pears, mangos, pineapple, tiny bananas, rambutans.
