As you can see from my table above, there are tonnes of birthday perks to take advantage of.

But here are some of the most noteworthy birthday perks that you should try not to miss!

Free Entry To The Singapore Zoo

*Temporarily Suspended*

Source: Visit Singapore

If you don’t know this, then you really should be born in the zoo.

Best of all, you can also bring friends along who have birth dates that are CLOSE to yours too!

The free admission for birthday guest is valid with an accompanying paying guest.

And this is valid for 7 days from date of birth (actual date inclusive).

For example, if your birthday is on 1st May, you are eligible for your FREE entry from 1st May to 7th May.

What’s more, you get 10% off all retail and F&B outlets when you present your admission ticket.

Note: You get free entry to River Safari, Jurong Bird Park, and Night Safari too!

Free Ice Cream at Swensen’s

Source: Swensen’s

The best way to celebrate your birthday is with a Free Firehouse Happy Birthday Ice Cream at Swensen’s (has to be the actual day).

All you have to do is present your NRIC or passport before ordering.

They’ve been offering this ever since I WAS A KID!

I always have fond memories of my sisters and me having our birthday meals at Swensen’s (almost) every year for the free ice-cream!

Free Fruit Platter or Longevity Buns at Hai Di Lao

You’ve probably seen videos of your friends being celebrated by the staff members’ enthusiastic singing and their flashing LED signboards.

But it is more than just mere fruits and buns.

It is liveliness.

It is joy.

It is the singing-your-happy-birthday-song-in-a-room-full-of-strangers awkwardness.

Let’s face it — we all love getting stuff on our birthday (isn’t that what our special day is about anyway). But did you know that you don’t just have to depend on your friends for the good things? 

Some of our favourite places across Singapore provide perks to birthday boys and girls all year long. Who cares if you have to sign up for a free membership or an email newsletter or two? From foodie freebies to telco deals, scroll on for all the ways you can celebrate!

There are many more dining deals for birthdays, but we have sussed out the best ones which we think get you the most bang for your buck. By the way, hotpot chain Hai Di Lao doesn’t actually check your ID when you tell them it’s your birthday. So do whatever you want with that information. 

If you have old folks, we’d recommend you to celebrate their birthdays at Ikkousha, as you’ll get as many free gyozas as the birthday person’s age. This means if they are 90, you get 90 free gyozas. Yay!

Save more when you use the right credit card

Beyond getting free stuff on your birthday, you can also get more value for your total spend by paying with a credit card that gives you bonus rewards, air miles, or cashback.

Here are some of the best credit cards in the market right now for dining.

1. Telco 

Telco Deal
Singtel Various birthday deals

If you’re an M1 subscriber, treat yourself to 1-for-1 ice cream at Andersen’s Ice Cream and get 30 per cent off English Afternoon Tea at Lobby Lounge, Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel.


It’s raining deals at Resorts World Sentosa, where birthday peeps who are RWS Invites Members can get freebies such as a cocktail at Hard Rock Café and pancake batter at Slappy Cakes. 

If you plan to celebrate your special day at Sentosa, you’ll be glad to know that there are also promotions for various attractions like 1-for-1 ride packages at HeadRock VR and 1-for-1 admission tickets to Trick Eye Museum.

Birthday Treats Singapore 2020 – 33 Best Freebies for Every Day of the Month

Statistically, you share your birthday with at least 15,000 other people in Singapore. But it’s in most businesses’ interest to perpetuate the belief that your birthday is super duper special to them, because that’s how you get Singaporeans to overspend on “birthday treats”.

But you know, not everyone is as disillusioned about capitalism as I am, and are perfectly comfortable about claiming any free treats that brands want to give you.

Therefore, I present the most comprehensive guide to birthday treats in Singapore, featuring the 33 best freebies and discounts — yes, enough for every single day of your birthday month!

33 best birthday treats in Singapore 2019

There are actually WAY more birthday freebies and discounts in Singapore, but I’ve selected the cream of the crop (i.e. minimal strings attached), because it’s your ~special day~.

Story continues

To help you make sense of this heady, consumeristic frenzy of deals, I’m going to break it down into digestible sections and you can skip the ones that don’t interest you, e.g. beauty. I’ll also mention the birthday treats that didn’t make the cut in each section.

Casual takeaway birthday treats — Koi, Swensen’s & Starbucks

I love it when a brand gives me a freebie without asking for anything in return, so my absolute favourite birthday treat is Swensen’s famous free Firehouse ice cream sundae. You have to dine in, but no one will compel you to order a full meal to accompany your ice cream here.

Koi’s 2 x free drinks deal comes close, but you do have to purchase the “KoiTHELicious” (what on earth) stored value card by topping up at least $10 in Koi credits. That’s okay though, because what kind of Singaporean has trouble using up $10 at Koi? Both you and your best BBT buddy need to be present to claim it.

For Boost and Starbucks, the freebies are for members who have actually patronised the establishment before. The Boost one is easy to score as you gain membership by buying 1 drink. For Starbucks, you need to have spent quite a lot of bucks to be a Green or Gold member.

Birthday treats at restaurants — free buffets, birthday cakes & more

Birthdays are a great time to contribute to F&B businesses’ revenue, and so it’s nice that some restaurants actually bother to give the birthday person some kind of freebie.

My favourite ones are the free buffets you can get at Shin Minori, Seoul Garden and Coca, which are really worthwhile considering a standard buffet is at least $40 or so at such restaurants. Bear in mind that they usually require X paying diners so you can’t just go in there and pig out alone.

Most other birthday treats such as free lobster, gyozas, sashimi, cake and fruit platters are more obviously marketing gimmicks. I wouldn’t specially go to a restaurant like Hai Di Lao just for the fruit platter, but it would make the birthday meal more fun. Proceed with a bit more caution, because the a la carte orders would probably add up.

A number of restaurants also have their own membership programmes, and dish out birthday freebies or discounts to members. Some of these are paid, though, so they’re only worth it if you’re a super hardcore fan of the restaurant.

Here are some of the more prominent ones:

Birthday treats for recreational activities — free entry to the Zoo, RWS & more

Non-dining birthday treats are harder to come by, but the best known one is free entry to Singapore Zoo, Night Safari or River Safari which has been around for ages. I did this last year to see my favourite Night Safari resident, the Indian gharial. It does require one paying visitor which basically makes it 1-for-1, but it’s still worth it.

Many of the other attractions require paid membership to programmes such as RWS Invites, NTUC Membership and even Popular Club (yes, as in the bookstore), if you happen to be one.

Notable exclusions are the WE Club membership (1-for-1 ticket) and Scoot Insider (discount voucher) which are totally free to join. Yay!

Birthday treats for shopping — IKEA, Muji & CapitaMalls vouchers/discounts

Loads of retailers have membership programmes, and if you happen to be a member at your favourite store already, it can’t hurt to check out what birthday perks the programme offers.

Cotton On and Kikki.K have the lowest membership requirements — both free to join with no purchase required — so if you’re looking for a “pure” freebie then by all means sign up for membership with them.

Otherwise, I’ve added the more common stores where you might already be a member, such as Muji, IKEA and The Body Shop.

There are tons of birthday treats at beauty stores like Sephora and Innisfree, but these tend to be for the more VIP-type customers who have already spent a lot of money at these stores. Others with birthday rewards for top-tier spenders are Etude House, Shu Uemura, Laniege, Kiehl’s and L’Occitane.

Birthday treats that come with membership programmes

The cardinal rule for birthday treats? Always check your telco, credit card/bank, insurance and any paid memberships that you’re already a part of.

These usually have a bunch of birthday promotions to incentivise you to continue giving them money, and you will probably get an SMS or email from them on your birthday month.

But there’s a reason why I put them at the bottom of this list; it’s because the promotions tend to be quite lame, e.g. 15% discount at Cafe Unheard-Of.

Special mention: Grab drivers’ birthday treat

Know someone who’s driving for Grab? Make sure they “claim” their $50 birthday treat from Grab every year.

Though faceless corporation Grab isn’t exactly everyone’s dream employer, they at least have the decency to offer a small but appreciated perk for their hardworking Grab drivers by footing the bill (up to $50) for their birthday celebrations.

To qualify, you need to have completed at least 5 unique passenger bookings in the month prior to your birthday month. Then, all you need to do is take a photo of the dining/whatever receipt and upload it to Grab.

This is valid from the start of your birthday month to the end of the first week of the next month.

Also worth a try: Airlines & hotels birthday treats

If you’re travelling for your birthday, you might miss out on some of these birthday treats in Singapore, but you can also ask for freebies on your flights and from hotels.

Some airlines and hotels — typically the more expensive ones — have an unofficial policy where they treat birthday guests to something nice, e.g. a free upgrade or a slice of cake. There are no official T&Cs for these practices but they’ve been widely reported online, such as in this travel hacking article, so it can’t hurt to try your luck.

It does take a special sort of thick-skinned person to ask for their own birthday treat though, so I suggest you get your travel companion to help you ask on your behalf (well in advance of your flight/stay, if possible). He/she will look like a total sweetheart while you neatly avoid looking like the cheaponana you really are.

Birthday in Singapore –

Recently, my husband and I made the decision to escape from drunken parties to distant countries for our birthdays. And somehow it happened that on my birthday we definitely go to the zoo (Pattaya, Chiang Mai). That’s my last day of jam (with a round date), we definitely decided to spend at the Singapore zoo. Why here? Will explain. There is such an animal here, because of which, in fact, I was eager to go to Singapore.
On the occasion of a small holiday, we went by taxi (instead of metro and bus), i.Because the zoo in Singapore is still far away. We bought tickets and … began to celebrate. I invite you to join us. The territory of the zoo is not large, it is quite possible to get around everything with your own legs without resorting to the services of local buses. True, I asked my spouse to take me for a ride on this kind of transport

but I was flatly refused.
I hasten to say right away that I am delighted with this zoo, although I read very conflicting opinions in different reviews.
The territory is unusually beautiful and easy to navigate, with a lot of reservoirs and waterfalls that save you in heat conditions

All the animals look very well-groomed, contained in absolutely natural conditions.
These guys are either beggars, or just very curious, but how cute they are !!!

A lot of animals run right under their feet and gallop in front of their noses. You can stroke it calmly if you are not afraid. Here’s how these, for example

Or these

And these guys were generally very interested in whether I had something tasty?

And for a long time we were pursued

But most of the inhabitants went about their daily activities, completely oblivious to the visitors.Someone slept sweetly

While some sleep, others think of themselves as eagles

Someone’s in the middle of a date

Well, these are always in philosophical reasoning (after a hearty dinner)

And some are even wondering what I ate for lunch yesterday?

Others, like these flying foxes, just started at lunchtime

This lazy (literally) guy watched them with interest and all he had the strength to do was to open his mouth soundlessly when they fought noisily over a “piece of bread”

In general, the Singapore Zoo impressed me with the fact that in a relatively small area, a huge variety of flora and fauna is collected.Let’s quickly go over those who kindly agreed to pose for me.

Dwarf (mouse) deer

But I did not manage to photograph these tiny underground creatures (a dark room, and even through glass)

, so if you are interested, google it yourself. I don’t even know what to call them correctly when searching, they seem to be something like sand puppies.
Well, it’s time to show you those to whom I was striving so much on my birthday.Apparently, to conduct a comparative analysis, whose nose is cooler – mine or theirs?

This is the head of the family. It is easy to immediately identify it by this pear instead of a nose.

All the girls in his harem have much neater noses

But the father of this large family struck me on the spot!

In general, we would have walked around the zoo for a long time, if it had not started pouring rain … Yes, in fact, we are already hungry. We returned to the city, where, by the way, there was no rain and walked until the evening.But I’ll show it another time. Before returning to the hotel, we bought a bottle of good wine, and when we entered the room, we found a beautifully served table with a small but fantastically delicious chocolate cake (and I’m not a sweet tooth at all!), Candles and beautiful glasses. And how did they know that we were going to take the bottle with us? The birthday was a success. We sat on the balcony of the 26th floor, sipped delicious wine and admired Singapore at night! I will never forget this picture !!!

Cultural features of Singapore

NATIONAL FEATURES Holidays in Singapore are celebrated by the whole world, although each nation has its own religion.

Hari Raya Puasa – the end of the month of Ramadan, the tenth month in the so-called lunar Hijra, the Muslim calendar, is one of the most important holidays in Singapore. This is the day of the end of the Muslim fast, when during the month from dawn to dusk, Muslims should neither eat, drink, nor indulge in entertainment.

Chinese New Year is also a very revered and popular holiday. A few weeks before its onset, the Chinese dress in gold and red.People buy tangerine, lemon and orange trees and present their fruits to each other, as well as gifts in special hong bao packages. The streets and squares, which are filled with dancing Singaporeans, beat drums. It is especially interesting to watch the colorful Chingai parade with folk dances and boat races.

Hindu holidays such as Ponggal and Thaipusam are also widely celebrated by Indians in January / February. Residents of the “Little India” area cook rice porridge in pots – a symbol of fertility and flourishing of life.They sacrifice this porridge to the gods at the Sri Perumal temple on Serangun Road. During the Taipusam celebrations, a majestic procession of believers led by a man crowned with kawadis walks no less than three kilometers from the Sri Srinivasa Perumal temple to the Chettiar temple on Tank Road. Back in February, as well as in September, the Indians honor the monkey king Hanuman in the so-called monkey temple on Seng Poh Road.

On Good Friday in churches real performances about the crucifixion of Christ are performed, and in the Portuguese church of St.Joseph’s Church on Victoria Road and the Thomson Road Temple, they organize solemn processions with lit candles and singing of hymns.

On the spring holiday Kin Min the Chinese visit the graves of their ancestors.

In May, Vesak Day is widely celebrated – the birthday of Buddha, his inspiration and departure to nirvana. People all together meditate, pray and release birds from their cages.

Birthday of the Third Prince – “divine child” is celebrated in Chinese temples in May.Mediums in a trance inflict wounds on themselves with swords, dedicating blood to the gods, smearing it on pieces of paper, which they distribute to believers with a blessing.

In the Chinese pantheon, the Dragon is not at all the feisty Russian Serpent Gorynych. On the contrary, he brings health and wealth to the house, bestows strength and wisdom. Dragon Festival usually takes place in May. Try to get into Marina Bay these days for exciting and colorful boat races.

August 9 – Republic Day is one of the most sacred days for Singaporeans, although it has nothing to do with religion.In Padang or at the National Stadium, a parade takes place on this day, and fireworks are arranged in the evening.

In August, according to Chinese beliefs, the gates of Hell are opened and ghosts visit the living. “month of hungry ghosts” is coming. In order to appease them, incense sticks and money are being burned everywhere. Spirits also love to eat, so bowls of food are left for them on the windowsills and near the doorstep.

At the end of “Hungry Ghost Month” Moon Cookie Festival begins.The garden near the house is lit by hundreds of intricate paper lanterns, and as a treat, special cookies are prepared with a pasta filling, which includes lotus flowers, red beans, nuts, and candied duck egg yolks.

October is marked by the Indian holiday Navaratiri . On the streets and in temples, classical folk dances are performed, music sounds, theatrical performances are held in honor of the goddesses Kali, Lakshmi and Saraswati.

On Timiti , believers undergo a fire purification ceremony in memory of the goddess Draupadi, the character of the Indian epic Ramayana, who passed through the flame to prove her virginity.This heartbreaking performance takes place at the Mariamman Temple on South Bridge Road.

According to legend, during the days of the holiday of the nine divine emperors (October / November), the influence of divine forces on believers is activated. Diseases are cured from this, and well-being and happiness come to the house. The festival is celebrated with performances of traditional Chinese opera and noisy, crowded processions with sculptures of gods being worn in painted palanquins.

In November-December, the houses of the Indians are colored with the softly iridescent lights of the lamps in honor of the onset of Deepavali – perhaps the most important Hindu holiday in Singapore.According to legend, the forces of light at this time defeat the forces of darkness. As, however, and on the main Christian holiday – Christmas (December 25), when the central street Orchard Road sparkles with solemn illumination. Crowds of people sing Christmas carols in the streets. HOLIDAYS Holidays and significant dates celebrated in Singapore reflect its multinational nature, diversity of religious concessions.

Basic Information

Singapore – “Lion City”. In the 14th century, Chinese merchants described Singapore as a bare island inhabited by vicious pirates. According to a Malay legend, a Sumatran prince met a lion-like creature on the island, and this good omen prompted him to found the city of Singapore-Pura, which means “Lion City”, here.

Singapore is an island, river, city and state where three cultures have merged: Chinese, Indian and Arab. This is one of the most unusual places on Earth. Singapore is the pearl of Southeast Asia, combining an architectural tale of the twenty-first century, ultra-modern shopping and entertainment centers. Tourists are primarily impressed by the unique synthesis of modernity and tradition in Singapore. Labyrinths of ancient Chinese houses with tiled roofs and slender skyscrapers with first-class hotels harmoniously coexist with each other.

The surprising difference between Singapore and other Asian cities is its absolute cleanliness, tidiness and order. The island city also has entertainment for every taste. For example, the central tourist street of Singapore – Orchard Road, at night it sparkles with the lights of bars, discos and restaurants, and during the day it invites you to visit ultra-modern shops.

On the neighboring island of Sentosa – beautiful beaches, all kinds of water sports, golf courses, the largest attraction in Asia “Underwater World” and a delifinarium – everything is conducive to a magnificent, full of extraordinary impressions of rest.


The Republic of Singapore, a city-state in Southeast Asia, part of the Commonwealth led by Great Britain.

The country’s territory includes the small island of Singapore (42 km long and 23 km wide), as well as 59 small islets lying along its coast (the largest of them are Ubin, Tekong Besar, Brani, Sentosa, Semakau and Sudong), located at the southern tip of the Malacca Peninsula. Total area – 715 sq. km. Population over 5 million (2012).Singapore is a relatively wealthy country; the annual per capita income is approx. $ 22.5 thousand, and the country’s gold and foreign exchange reserves exceed $ 97 billion (1996).


Singapore is a parliamentary republic. The country has the 1959 constitution, which has been amended with a number of amendments (the latest in 1996). The head of state is the president, who has been elected since 1993 in a general election for a term of 6 years. Tony Tan Ken Yam has been holding the presidency, which is mostly representative.Executive power belongs to the cabinet of ministers headed by the prime minister, the president plays a more representative role, but in some cases he can veto critical decisions.


Equatorial marine, hot and humid. During the year, the air temperature changes little – from +26 C to +30 C all year round. The coldest time of the year is from November to January, when the temperature “drops” to + 24-26 C. Precipitation falls from 600 to 1300 mm. per year, mainly from December to March (northeast monsoon) and from June to September (southwest monsoon).There is relatively little rainfall between monsoon seasons, but it is usually accompanied by severe thunderstorms and short but powerful rainstorms. Relative humidity is kept at 64-96% all year round.

The majority of the Chinese population follow traditional beliefs that combine Taoism, Confucianism, Buddhism, and ancient animism. Most Muslims are Malays, but other peoples also practice Islam. Christianity is held by 14% of the population; both Catholicism and other denominations are represented. But a significant portion of Singaporeans, especially among educated people, are atheists. On a national scale, the authorities are making significant efforts to neutralize the growing weight of religious movements, especially Islam.Since small Singapore is surrounded by two large Muslim countries – Indonesia and Malaysia, the issue of religion and loyalty from the Muslim minority is key for it.

Here you can taste dishes of Chinese, Malay, Japanese, Indian, European, Mexican and Thai cuisine, including works of culinary art from any country in the world.There is practically no own cuisine here – everything that can be seen or tried in numerous restaurants, bars and cafes is borrowed.

Everything is quite cheap and easy to use. An extensive bus network covers the entire island.Buses operate from 6 am to midnight. The metro has three lines, one of which starts at the airport.

The fare on the metro is from S $ 0.8 to S $ 2, depending on the distance, on the bus – from $ 0.7 to $ 1.7 (on express routes – up to $ 2.35). The high-speed tram performs auxiliary functions in the remote areas of the island, bringing passengers to the metro. The main transport to the entertainment island of Sentosa is the cable car.It has three stations – Mount Faber, Harbor and Sentosa.

Cities and resorts of Singapore

The capital of the state – the city of Singapore – is bright, modern and, as is often the case in Asia, striking with contrasts. Its heart is the Central District: administrative and business districts plus the colonial part of the 19th century. Iconic landmarks are the Victorian Impress Place Building with a museum and restaurant, Parliament, St.Andrew and the Good Shepherd and, of course, the famous Marina Bay with the hotel of the same name – a revived illustration for a futuristic story.

Living in the center is expensive, but convenient: there will be no problems with transport, shopping, or the cultural program.

The largest area of ​​Singapore – Chinatown, bustling, crowded and true to tradition. The Chinese Baroque buildings dotted with signage houses an endless string of cheap hostels, cafes and shops, where you can find anything from shark fins to swallow’s nests for mere pennies.

In some places on the streets there are mirrors to scare away evil spirits: a sure sign that a fortuneteller, tarot reader or feng shui master is hiding nearby.

Another picturesque quarter – Little India. It is impossible to leave here without shopping: the counters are full of precious jewelry, fragrant spices and colorful sarees. The Arab region is centered around the Sultan Mosque, with its spectacular golden dome. Trade is also boiling on the local streets: carpets, sarongs and silk are snapped up by tourists eager for exoticism.

The most fashionable area of ​​Singapore is Orchard Road with fashionable hotels, shopping malls, clubs and restaurants. The main pearl is the Botanical Garden, recognized as one of the best in the world. And Jurong is an industrial center, more like a separate city.

Diverse Singapore is not only the capital, but also the surrounding islands. The most famous is Sentosa with unusually beautiful nature and a whole collection of entertainment: the huge Underwater World Oceanarium, the Butterfly Park, the Universal Studios complex.On Pulau Ubin Island you can enjoy the tranquility of fishing villages, while on Pulau Tekong you can stroll through virgin forests and relax on deserted beaches.


The weather in Singapore is the benchmark for stability: winter and summer temperatures differ by only 1-2 ° C. The climate on the island is tropical monsoon, which means that you should put an umbrella in your suitcase before traveling: it rains here all year round. The only question is the intensity: from November to February, real showers fall on the country, which do not subside for several days in a row, at best, they stop for a couple of hours.Therefore, it is better to go to Singapore from March to October: spring and autumn are warm here, and in summer there is every chance to see the sights without getting wet to the skin.

Tourist Cards

The Singapore Tourist Pass and Singapore Tourist Pass Plus are specially designed for the smart traveler, helping to cut budgets both for city transportation and for some travel pleasures. The cost of the first card is from 10 SGD for 1 day to 20 SGD for 3 days, the Plus subscription is 30-40 SGD, respectively.To the indicated amounts, you need to add 10 SGD each, which is given back when the card is returned within 5 days from the date of purchase. Both passes are sold at tourist offices and TransitLink ticket offices located at metro stations.

The Singapore Tourist Pass gives the holder an unlimited number of free rides on any public transport, while the Plus Card also includes free admission to the Chinatown Cultural Heritage Center and a cocktail compliment at a cozy riverside café. All the details are at the (in English).


The country’s monetary unit is the Singapore dollar (SGD), in 1 dollar 100 cents.

Currency in Singapore is exchanged at banks and official exchange offices located in hotels, shopping centers and some metro stations and marked with Licensed Money Changer signs. On weekdays, banks are open from 9:30 to 16:30, on Saturdays – until 13:00, Sunday is a day off. The working hours of most exchange offices are 10: 00-17: 00, in some places the regime is extended until 20:00.You can change money immediately upon arrival, in the arrivals area or at the baggage claim counter. The most favorable rate is in Little India exchangers. Russian rubles are not accepted for exchange.

Tipping is not accepted in Singapore, however, the most generous tourists still reward maids, administrators and porters 1-2 SGD for their efforts.

Bank cards are accepted everywhere, they can even pay for taxi fares, although in this case a commission of up to 15% is added to the standard tariff.ATMs only issue local currency (20-2000 SGD per transaction), and many of them do not accept Russian credit cards, so it is best to always have cash with you in reserve.

How to avoid problems

Draconian bans in Singapore lie in wait for the relaxed traveler at every step – be vigilant and carefully read the inscriptions on all prohibition signs. Gambling and chewing gum are prohibited in the country. Garbage thrown on the street is subject to a fine of 300-1000 SGD, and for repeated violations, they may well go to jail.Smoking in closed public places, buses, elevators, cinemas, theaters, government offices, restaurants and shops is prohibited by law, the fine is the same – 500-1000 SGD. Prepare to pay 500 SGD for crossing the road in the wrong place, the same amount will be charged for eating food in public transport or driving in a car without wearing a seat belt.

The crime rate in the country is very low: literally you can leave things, documents and even money anywhere – they will not be stolen.When visiting temples and mosques, hands and feet should be covered with clothes. When entering Indian temples and mosques, you are supposed to take off your shoes; this should be done when entering the houses and apartments of local residents. It is forbidden to photograph and film images of the Buddha in Buddhist temples.

Tap water in Singapore is sanitized and safe to drink.

To help withstand the heat, it is best to wear light cotton clothing. At the same time, do not forget about the air conditioning systems, which are stuffed with almost all shops and office buildings: a light jumper with long sleeves will definitely not be superfluous.

Singapore Beaches – Until recently, beach holidays in Singapore were not very popular: tourists were alarmed by the proximity of a giant port that pollutes the water. But the use of innovative cleaning systems and the active development of infrastructure are changing the situation for the better. Now there are many beaches, all of them are free, equipped with toilets, changing cabins, showers and even lockers for storing valuables with a combination lock.

Sun beds and umbrellas – for a fee: an average of 20 SGD per day.

The best beaches in the capital are concentrated in the east. “East Coast Park” is famous for its well-groomed, clean sea and gentle sandy bottom. Changi Coast near the airport is a great place for cycling and camping, but the water is dirty here.

The most famous Singaporean beaches are located on Sentosa Island: the sea here is surprisingly clear, the landscapes are amazing. Palawan Beach is always full of families with children: there is a water amusement park, and a whole scattering of cafes and restaurants.Siloso Beach is a paradise for active youth: beach volleyball, extreme entertainment and dancing to loud music will not let you get bored even for a minute. “Tanjong Beach” is suitable for a romantic getaway: during the day it is calm here, and closer to the night it is time for sultry parties.

Fans of wild recreation are relaxing on other, while less popular islands. On St. John’s – first-class diving, on Pulau Ubin – cozy fishing villages, on Kusu – picturesque lagoons, hidden from prying eyes.Instead of the benefits of civilization – absolute harmony with nature.


Singapore cannot be called a diving Mecca, but there are still several places worthy of diving attention. For vivid impressions, it is enough to drive to literally any of the nearby islands, except for the noisy Sentosa. Off the coast of St. John’s, sea eagles and sea cucumbers are found; in the crystal clear waters, you can see representatives of authentic flora and fauna even at great depths. Moray eels, puffer, parrotfish, stingrays, sea urchins and giant molluscs, which look very impressive surrounded by colorful corals, are found off the coast of Pulau Kapas.

Average cost for a pair of dives with an instructor – 180 SGD excluding equipment.

Pulau Redang is a habitat for red anemones, seahorses and turtles, sometimes even sharks swim here. At Pulau Tioman Island, flocks of colorful tropical fish, barracudas and spotted perches await divers. And off the coast of Bintan, Indonesia, experienced divers can explore the holds and decks of 6 ships that sank during World War II. There are ferries from the Singapore port, the trip takes only 45 minutes, you do not need an Indonesian visa.

Shopping and shops in Singapore

Shopping in Singapore is a delight for the generous and sophisticated: the abundance of technology, clothing, cosmetics and jewelry dazzles the eyes, only the prices are comparable to European and American ones. Luxury brand stores are concentrated on the shopping street Orchard Road: Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Prada and other brands that need no introduction delight discerning customers. Here you can also find iconic Asian goods: CYC shirts, Risis and Purple Gold jewelry, Tessere leather bags, and Eu Yan Sang pharmacy cosmetics.In terms of concentration of fashion brands, only the Marina Bay Sands Hotel can be compared to Orchard Road.

Tourists with a less tight wallet are waiting for Bagis Village street with shops of democratic brands. The quality of the local products is average, but you can and should bargain with might and main. The best markets in the city are Geylang Serai and Tiong Bahru, with fresh produce and exotic foods like shark meat. Singapore shops are open from 10:00 to 21:00, on weekends until 22:00, only small shops are closed for lunch.

It is most profitable to shop during the period of the only Singaporean Grand Sale, which starts at the end of May and lasts until July-August. Prices in stores fall by 50-70%.

The most popular souvenirs from Singapore are spice sets, silk umbrellas and fans with bizarre patterns, Merlion figurines repeating the outline of the city’s main fountain, medicinal herbs, ceramic vases and handmade batik. An expensive but impressive gift is the golden orchid: a living flower immersed in precious metal.Artifacts of other cultures are also brought from multinational Singapore: oriental carpets from the Arab quarter, Chinese silk from Chinatown, painted sarees from Little India.

Cuisine and Restaurants – Singaporean cuisine is a unique phenomenon: there are no national culinary traditions in the country, but there is an incredible combination of Indian, Chinese, Malay and European recipes. Do not forget about the Indonesian, Ceylon and Middle Eastern notes, which make the taste of local dishes unique.Singaporean chefs are not afraid to experiment: British roast beef can be served with Chinese sauce, and Peking duck with Indian spices. It turns out original and tasty, which will be gladly confirmed by thousands of gourmets from all over the world who leave the country well-fed and satisfied.

Average bill for dinner in a restaurant – from 85 SGD, for lunch in a cafe – 15-30 SGD per person. The prices on the menu are indicated without taxes and fees, and this is another plus 15-20%.

Singaporeans borrowed from Chinese cuisine Hainanese chicken with steamed rice, as well as noodles with dumplings stuffed with shrimp or pork.Gastronomic gifts from India – thosai with vegetables, fruits or meat, roti prata pancakes with curry sauce, tandoori chicken marinated in yogurt. Sate kebabs on bamboo sticks, nasi-lemak rice with peanuts, eggs, anchovies and cucumbers and ayam-buah-keluak meat with nuts are the Malay guests on the Singaporean menu. Of the soups, it is worth trying “bak-kut-tekh” made from pork ribs. For breakfast, we recommend kaya sandwiches with coconut jam, herbs, cheese or ham – the perfect addition to a cup of coffee.

In Singapore, people eat with chopsticks, forks and spoons, but table knives are rarely served here.

Singaporeans are literally obsessed with food, considering it one of the main ways of converging cultures. Lunch and dinner most often not in restaurants, but in street eateries, reminiscent of European food courts. The food there is tasty and cheap: any of the many national dishes costs 2-5 SGD. There are dozens of fish restaurants on the island serving freshly caught seafood. The bars at large hotels offer excellent cocktail and wine lists.

21 years ago (2000) the Order of St. George was restored as the highest military award in Russia

On August 8, 2000, a decree of the President of the Russian Federation was signed, which approved the statute of the award, the Regulation on the insignia – St. George’s Cross and their description.

Originally, the Order of St. George was established in 1769 by Catherine II. The motto of the award is “For Service and Courage!” It was awarded exclusively to the military “for courage, jealousy and zeal for military service and for encouragement in the art of war.”

In total, 23 people were awarded the order of the 1st degree, about 120 people of the 2nd degree, about 640 people of the 3rd degree, and about 15 thousand people of the 4th degree. Field marshals Mikhail Kutuzov, Mikhail Barclay de Tolly, Ivan Paskevich and Ivan Dibich had all four awards.

After the October Revolution, the order was abolished, and in 1992 the Supreme Soviet of the Russian Federation decided to restore it.

The Order of St. George “is awarded to senior and senior officers for conducting military operations to defend the Fatherland in the event of an external enemy attack, which ended in the complete defeat of the enemy, as well as for conducting military and other operations on the territory of other states while maintaining or restoring international peace and security, which have become an example of the art of war, whose exploits serve as an example of valor and courage and who have been awarded state awards of the Russian Federation for the distinction shown in hostilities. “

There are four grades of the order. Cavaliers of the Order of I and II degrees are awarded a sign and a star, and III and IV – only a sign. The names of the awardees are inscribed on marble boards in the St. George Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace in Moscow.

Colonel-General Sergei Makarov, Commander of the North Caucasian Military District, became the first holder of the Order of the IV degree on August 18, 2008. He was awarded for the successful conduct of the operation in the conflict zone in South Ossetia.

76 years ago (1945) in accordance with the decisions of the Yalta and Potsdam conferences, after Japan’s refusal to fulfill the demands for unconditional surrender, the Soviet government announced that from August 9, 1945, the USSR would consider itself at war with Japan.

This was the last major military campaign of World War II. In 24 days, the Japanese Kwantung Army, located in Manchuria, was defeated by Soviet troops under the command of Alexander Vasilevsky, Rodion Malinovsky and Kirill Meretskov.

On September 2, 1945, on board the American battleship Missouri, Japanese Foreign Minister Mamoru Shigemitsu, as a representative of the Emperor and the Japanese government, and Chief of the General Staff, General Yoshijiro Umezu, signed the “Act of Japan’s Unconditional Surrender.”

The peace treaty between the USSR and Japan was never signed. On December 12, 1956, the Soviet-Japanese declaration entered into force, which declared the state of war between the two countries to be terminated.

80 years ago (1941) during the Great Patriotic War, Soviet aviation carried out the first bombardment of military installations in Berlin.

In response to the massive air raids on Moscow, which the fascist German aviation began to carry out from the end of July, the headquarters of the High Command decided to start bombing Berlin.The initiators were Admiral Nikolai Kuznetsov, People’s Commissar of the USSR Navy, and Semyon Zhavoronkov, Aviation Lieutenant General.

The operation was entrusted to the 1st mine-torpedo aviation regiment of the 8th air brigade of the Red Banner Baltic Fleet Air Force under the command of Colonel Yevgeny Preobrazhensky.

In the evening of August 7, a group of 13 DB-3 bombers took off from the Cahul airfield on Ezel Island. At 01:30 am on August 8, Soviet pilots began bombing Berlin.

The raid on the city was a complete surprise for the German fascist leadership, since they did not expect such an attack.In the morning, German radio stations reported that British pilots attacked Berlin at night and were almost completely destroyed. In turn, the British said that their aircraft did not carry out raids. Only after the announcement of the Soviet Union, it became clear that the bombing was carried out by Soviet pilots and during the departure they did not lose a single aircraft.

By the Decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR dated August 13, 1941, for the successful completion of the mission, all the pilots who took part in the raid on Berlin were awarded state awards.

80 years ago (1941) during the Great Patriotic War, the first concert brigade went to the front.

It was formed by the Central House of Artists. In total, during the war years, 1 million 350 thousand artistic performances, 473 thousand concerts and performances took place directly in a combat situation. The front was visited by about 4 thousand artistic brigades. More than 40 thousand creative workers took part in their concerts.

97 years ago (1924) the first regular intracity bus line appeared in Moscow.

The first attempts to organize bus traffic in Moscow were made at the beginning of the 20th century. A trial line of “automobile lines” was opened in July 1907 between the outpost near Maryina Roshcha and Ostankino. A year later, the first private bus lines to suburban areas appeared in the capital.

In May 1924, the Moscow municipal services organized a trial run of several imported buses and home-made buses converted from trucks along the dacha line Presnenskaya Zastava – Serebryany Bor.The operation of this route gave good results and it was decided to make it regular.

The first regular intracity bus line ran from Kalanchevskaya Square through the center to Tverskaya Zastava. Eight British 28-seater Leyland buses were purchased especially for this route.

121 years ago (1900) the Davis Cup was established.

In 1899, four Harvard University students decided to hold a tennis tournament between the national teams.One of them – Dwight Davis – not only developed the scheme of the tournament, but also bought a prize for the winner with his own money. It was a silver salad bowl with gilding, 33 centimeters high, 45 centimeters in diameter.

In the first tournament, which took place in Brookline (USA) in 1900, the teams of the USA and Great Britain took part. The victory was won by tennis players from the United States. Subsequently, teams from Belgium, Austria, France and Australasia (the combined team of Australia and New Zealand) became participants in the tournament.

This tennis tournament received its modern name in 1945 after the death of Dwight Davis.

Today the Davis Cup is the most prestigious trophy in men’s tennis. More than 140 teams take part in the tournament. The cash prize pool, formed in 1981, is US $ 8.5 million.

122 years ago (1899) American inventor Albert Marshall patented the refrigerator.

The beneficial properties of cold for preserving food have been known since ancient times.For example, in ancient Egypt, ice was delivered from mountain glaciers for rulers and wealthy citizens. In order to bring it safe and sound, it was carefully covered, and upon arrival it was put in underground storage facilities.

In Russia, “glaciers” have been equipped for long-term storage of food. These were underground or semi-underground rooms, on the floor of which ice was laid in winter. The “glaciers” were well insulated and it didn’t melt until almost the next winter. Meat, fish and other supplies were stored in them all year round.

In 1748, the Scottish physician William Callen assembled the first refrigeration unit, the principle of which was similar to a modern refrigerator.

First, on August 8, 1899, the refrigerator was patented by the inventor from Minnesota Albert Marshall. 12 years later, General Motors began to produce refrigerators, more or less similar to modern ones. However, they made a very loud noise and, due to the fact that they were running on gas, did not smell very good. A few years later, the Danish engineer Stindrup eliminated these shortcomings.

In the USSR, the first refrigerators were created in 1937 at the Kharkov Tractor Plant, but their mass production was mastered only in the 1960s.
