Travelers to the Singapore gravitate toward Chinatown or Little India, or to one of the newest attractions, like the remarkable Gardens by the Bay. The city-state has recently opened two “integrated resorts” (also known as casinos) and other nightlife options are centered on the Riverside district. The mix of Chinese, Malay and Indian populations make for a year-round of colorful events like Lunar New Year, the Dragon Boat Festival, and Dewali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, and others.

Because of the cultural diversity of the country, you are also likely to encounter a festival while you are visiting; the country observes Christian, Hindu, Budhist, and Islamic (among other) holidays.

I loved it because of the diversity there, though I am a tourist I somehow feel that I belong. And their public transportation is top notch! Will definitely be back in Singapore.
