Tailor made holidays: See one of the finest Asian museums in Singapore
Britons planning tailor made holidays in Singapore will be able to see one of the finest museums in Asia, it has been claimed.
Mark Rowe, writing for the Independent, claimed that the Asian Civilisations Museum is well worth a visit as it offers a fascinating insight into the history of the region.
He said: "To spend half a day in the Asian Civilisations Museum that stands against the delightful waterside path is to relish one of the finest museums in Asia, a superb homage to multiculturalism.
"The building, the former government offices, reflects the fortunes of many other colonial properties in being given new life as museums or restaurants."
Mr Rowe added that the building is one of many in Singapore which has benefited from strict laws which require developers to preserve the exteriors of historical buildings.
Singapore has developed rapidly over the past 30 years, he stated, with major developments occurring along the country's famous harbour side.
