u can easily tour around the region and decide what u want to do - culture, history, shopping, dining or arts. Above is a link of the countries in the region that is easily accessible from SIN.

For an overnight trip, Malacca is a good choice. Bintan and Batam are two Indonesian islands u can explore via a 45 mins ferry ride (Bintan is more of an island resort setting while Batam is more for shopping kind of town).

U can go to Pulau Ubin for a glimpse of old SIN

Look at these for flights to the exotic destinations (phuket, bali, etc) :

Also check cebu pacific for cheap flights to the philippines and adamair to Indonesia.

There are just too much around this region so u have to decide what u want to do before choosing the right destination. Btw, it is also very easy nowadays to get flights to China from SIN.

Good Luck

PS. since u r visiting SIN (a very modern city state), I will suggest something exotic and cultural like Bangkok or Cambodia or Vietname or Laos, etc

To go with the obvious, you could check out Malaysia. Easy coach service to Kuala Lumpur and which, quite frankly, is good for a day or two, but Penang and the beaches are supposed to be lovely. I've only gone to KL for a few days - if you like spas, very nice and very inexpensive by Western standards.

Hi Vernon

We stayed in Sing for about 10 days on our last trip then had a few days in Sentosa and then a few days on Bintan. I just replied to another post and said we have been about 7 times now and always find something new to do.

The obvious places to check out are:

Orchard Road

China Town

Little India

Clarke Quay

Sentosa (go cable car)

Bugis Junction/Night Markets

Glutton Bay & Newton Circus(Food)

Kusu Island (Take Bum Boat rather than Cheng Ho cruise)

Bukit Timah or Maquarie Reserve if you want a good nature walk

Raffles for the experience :-))

I could go on.........Enjoy - Mups (ex Geordie)
