The diverse roots of this diminutive island are reflected in its ethnic neighborhoods. Tourists are presented with a mix of high-rises in the city, tea houses in Chinatown, mansions in the colonial district, Victorian-style government buildings, Hindu temples and Arabian bazaars. Most shore excursions here are half-day tours with stops in the Little India area and at the Museum at Empress Place. An excursion to Jurong Bird Park for a walk through the aviaries is also a good choice.
