Welcome to an Independent Vodcast for you to enjoy now, or to download to watch at your leisure.
Join Simon Calder - the Independent's Travel Editor - on a 48-hour journey through the dazzling destination of Singapore.
See for yourself the cultural vibrancy and ethnic diversity of this fascinating city as Simon explores both by day and by night, taking in a late night safari, a potentially edible church and a Singapore Sling on the 71st floor of The Stanford hotel along the way.
With the guidance of those 'in the know', Simon explores both the Chinese and Arabic quarters, as well as pointing out the lingering influences of the city's colonial past such as St. Andrew's church and the Cavenagh bridge - manafactured in Scotland and assembled in Singapore by Indian convicts.
Immerse yourself in this discovery of Singaporean culture as Simon takes to the water in a bumboat to gain a fresh perspective on the ever-changing Singapore skyline, samples the culinary delights at the hawker centre, delves into the city's heritage at the Asian Civilisations Museum and indulges in a spot of 24-hour shopping at the Mustafa centre.
