A Singapore vacation reveals the many charms of a leading city-state and regional hub of culture, retail, and tourism.
You've added Lantern, Singapore Zoo, Flower Dome, and other attractions to your itinerary. Step out of Singapore with an excursion to Universal Studios Singapore in Sentosa Island--about 32 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: shop like a local with Orchard Road, appreciate the history behind Merlion Park, take some stellar pictures from Fort Siloso Skywalk, and examine the collection at Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum.

To find photos, ratings, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Singapore travel planning site.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major aiport is Singapore Changi Airport. December in Singapore sees daily highs of 36°C and lows of 29°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Tokyo.

Tokyo holds the status of most populous metropolitan area in the world--a fact you'll find tangible as you walk the bustling streets and explore its diverse neighborhoods and cultures.
Tokyo is known for historic sites, parks, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: don't miss a visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine, take a stroll through Ginza, get your game on at Owl cafe Akiba Fukurou, and admire the landmark architecture of Tokyo Tower.

You can fly from Singapore to Tokyo in 10 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and train; or do a combination of flight, taxi, and train. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Singapore to Tokyo due to the time zone difference. In December, Tokyo is colder than Singapore - with highs of 14°C and lows of 4°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Wed) to allow time to take a train to Kyoto.

The national capital for over a thousand years, Kyoto retains much of the charm of old Japan, boasting numerous temples and shrines that seem completely untouched by the modern world.
Explore Kyoto's surroundings by going to Dotombori (in Dotombori), Himeji Castle (in Himeji) and Universal Studios Japan (in Osaka). Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kitano Tenmangu Shrine, don't miss a visit to Eikando Zenrinji Temple, and explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle.

To see maps, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Kyoto route maker.
