The name of the island is Sentosa and it is available to all the citizens of … Continue reading Singapore: CABLE CAR TO SENTOSA ISLAND (9)

Singapur: ŽIČAROM DO OSTRVA SENTOZA (9)

Ono čime treba da se završi serija tekstova o Singapuru, jeste svakako obilazak jednog od manjih ostrva u okolini glavnog. Oaza prirode, u koju Singapurci pobegnu vikendom da se brčkaju i izležavaju na plaži ili šetaju sređenom i gustom šumom. Ostrvo se zove Sentoza i više je nego dostupno svima koji u ovom gradu-državi žive … Continue reading Singapur: ŽIČAROM DO OSTRVA SENTOZA (9)

Singapore: BREAKFAST WITH ORANGUTANS (8)

One of the seemingly most popular attractions when I was there, was the so called Singapore's Night Safari. Well, "while in Singapore", right! I have stumbled upon this tour numerous times when I was reading about the city, planning to travel there, so thought it wouldn't hurt to try. It sure is one nice visit … Continue reading Singapore: BREAKFAST WITH ORANGUTANS (8)

Singapur: DORUČAK SA ORANGUTANIMA (8)

Prvo što će vam svaka singapurska turistička agencija ponuditi kao "najveću atrakciju" je takozvani "Noćni safari". Kad ste već tu (a i ako ste se putem interneta obaveštavali o stvarima "koje treba posetiti" sigurno ste nabasali i na ovaj safari), upustite se i u ovu avanturu, što da ne, naročito ako putujete s decom. Međutim, … Continue reading Singapur: DORUČAK SA ORANGUTANIMA (8)

Singapore: ABUNDANCE OF ORCHIDS AND BIRDS (7)

Speaking of parks and vegetation, it should be mentioned that there are all sorts of tropical plants in Singapore due to warm and humid climate. The city is actually well famous for its field of orchids. Proud of their natural resources, people from Singapore turned vast portions of land into gardens. Botanic gardens stretch along … Continue reading Singapore: ABUNDANCE OF ORCHIDS AND BIRDS (7)

Singapur: OBILJE ORHIDEJA I PTICA (7)

Kad smo već kod parkova i vegetacije, treba znati da u Singapuru zbog vlažne i tople klime uspevaju svakojake tropske biljke. Ono po čemu je ovaj grad na istoku naročito poznat jesu polja različitih vrsta orhideja. Ponosni na ovo svoje prirodno bogatstvo, Singapurci su pozamašni deo grada odvojili za velike bašte i uzgajališta. Botanički vrtovi … Continue reading Singapur: OBILJE ORHIDEJA I PTICA (7)

Singapore: CHINESE AND JAPANESE GARDEN (6)

If you want to escape the crowd, concrete and glass, just take the subway from the Singapore center and go visit two beautiful gardens. There is the Chinese and the Japanese one, and they are so different from the scenery so typical for Singapore with its skyscrapers and modern technology working for men (or the … Continue reading Singapore: CHINESE AND JAPANESE GARDEN (6)

Singapur: KINESKI I JAPANSKI VRT (6)

Ako biste da pobegnete od gužve, betona i stakla, na petnaestak minuta metroom od centra Singapura nalaze se dva prelepa parka. Jedan japanski, drugi kineski. Toliko različiti od onoga što predstavlja sam grad i sve one moderne tehnologije koja radi za čoveka (ili čovek za nju), a opet u duhu kulture naroda koji u ovom … Continue reading Singapur: KINESKI I JAPANSKI VRT (6)

Singapore: PEANUTS AND COCKTAILS AT RAFFLES (5)

The diversity of Singapore is so rich and specific that you might feel you have to pay close attention not to miss out on something along the way. That is how I came across a villa not far from the Orchard Road that looked like it was emerging from the foundation of the high glassy … Continue reading Singapore: PEANUTS AND COCKTAILS AT RAFFLES (5)

Singapur: KIKIRIKI UZ KOKTELE DO ZORE (5)

Raznolikost Singapura je zaista specifična, toliko da vam se čini da morate da gledate na sve strane da ne biste nešto propustili. Tako sam nedaleko od samog centra, odmah iznad turističke i šoping zone, videla vilu koja kao da je iznikla iz podnožja visoke staklene zgrade. Pojedine ulice krasiće red niskih zgrada u kolonijalnom stilu, … Continue reading Singapur: KIKIRIKI UZ KOKTELE DO ZORE (5)

Singapore: LITTLE INDIA AND CHINATOWN (4)

One district not to be missed in Singapore is Little India that stretches along the Serangoon Road. This is where Indian immigrants found refuge when coming to this country. Consequently, you will be overwhelmed by Indian decorations, religious statues, specific scents of saffron, aromatic burning sticks, with jasmine and other floral arrangements all around. There … Continue reading Singapore: LITTLE INDIA AND CHINATOWN (4)

Singapur: MALA INDIJA I KINESKA ČETVRT (4)

Specifičan deo grada predstavlja Mala Indija koja se proteže duž Serangoon Road-a. Ovde su se naseljavali Indijci koji su nekada u velikom broju dolazili u Singapur. Samim tim, kvart je pun tipičnih ukrasa, statua bogova, posebnih mirisa gde se mešaju šafran, aromatični štapići, a na sve strane su aranžmani jasmina i drugih vrsta cveća, koji … Continue reading Singapur: MALA INDIJA I KINESKA ČETVRT (4)

Singapore: KINGDOM OF SKYSCRAPERS (3)

Singapore consists of 63 islands, including the mainland. There are two man-made connections to Johor, Malaysia. The highest natural point is Bukit Timah Hill at 166 meters.

Singapur: CARSTVO VISOKIH ZGRADA (3)

Singapur se sastoji od ukupno 63 ostrva, uključujući i glavno. Spojen je sa Malezijom sa dva prelaza. Najviša tačka ove države je Bukit Tima Hil, brdo koje je visoko 166 metara.

Ovo je ostrvska zemlja, koja se nalazi na krajnjoj tački poluostrva na kojem je severno Tajland.

Singapur: GRAD POD STALNIM NADZOROM (1)

U Singapur se obično ide ili zbog šopinga, ili se tu zapravo preseda na putu za Australiju, Novi Zeland i druge destinacije. Ako dolazite iz onog prvog razloga, znajte da ćete pronaći sve svetske brendove čiju odeću žarko želite u svom ormaru, i da je sva roba znatno jeftinija nego u ostatku Azije jer je … Continue reading Singapur: GRAD POD STALNIM NADZOROM (1)
