Singapore is a unique country that will delight tourists with exoticism. The modern city and republic annually receives millions of travelers to admire the amazing skyscrapers, cultural, architectural monuments, visit Formula 1, wander through the national parks and soak up the beaches of the Sentosa resort.
Singapore is a tiny state, consisting of the metropolis of the same name and a group of islands. Modern technologies are harmoniously combined with ancient traditions. The Garden City is known for its cleanest streets. The state is considered one of the most economically developed. The republic's neighbors are Malaysia and Indonesia.
The weather is shaped by an equatorial maritime climate with year-round heat and high humidity. Tropical showers happen all the time; it is better to visit the country from March to October. Recreation features include first-class hotels, well-developed cuisine and annual festivals.
Changi local airport is considered one of the largest on the planet. Moscow is connected with Singapore by direct flights. The average flight duration is about 11 hours. To save money, you should get to the republics with transfers in Doha, Beijing, Istanbul or Helsinki.
Residents of other CIS countries will get to Singapore only with docking in Finland, Russia, Qatar or Vietnam. High-speed trains, shuttles, buses and taxis run from the international airport to the city.
Sentosa resort is considered the center of sea recreation in Singapore. The tropical corner will delight you with snow-white beaches, entertainment, nightclubs, chic hotels and historical sights. Tourists love canoeing and windsurfing.

Young couples are relaxing on romantic Tanjong.
In addition to the beach areas, Sentosa will delight you with an oceanarium, Orchid Garden, Flower Terrace, Historical Wax Museum and Butterfly Park. Travelers also enjoy the local fauna, the laser performance of the Musical Fountains, golfing, and pony riding.

Recreational resources are all kinds of resources that can be used to restore and develop the physical and spiritual strength of a person, his ability to work and health in recreation and tourism.
Recreational resources include:
1) natural complexes and their components (relief, climate, water bodies, vegetation, fauna, national parks);
2) cultural and historical (cultural, archaeological sites, historical sites, monuments, ethnographic diversity)
3) socio-economic (economic potential of the territory, including infrastructure, labor resources)
Climatic recreational resources
Climatic recreational resources mean a set of weather conditions suitable for various types of recreation. The types of weather are divided into comfortable, allowing certain types of rest without restrictions, subcomfortable, in which certain types of rest are possible with restrictions, and uncomfortable - a certain type of rest is not allowed. For example, for relaxing on the beach, the weather is comfortable with an average daily air temperature of +20 +25, a clear cloudless sky, a wind speed of no more than 5 m/s, and a relative humidity of 30 to 90%. When the listed characteristics go beyond the specified limits, for example, when the wind speed increases, the weather becomes subcomfortable - vacationers experience some inconvenience. In some weather conditions, such as heavy rain, a beach holiday is not possible.
Forest recreational resources
Forest recreational resources include all forests suitable for recreation. Only impenetrable forests (growing in impenetrable swamps) are unsuitable. Forest recreational resources are characterized by the following indicators.
Forest cover - percentage of forested area of the total area of the territory. Characteristics of the forest plant community: prevailing tree species, their age, the presence and density of undergrowth (young trees), undergrowth (shrubs), species composition of the herbaceous-dwarf shrub layer, mosses and lichens. The latter are indicators of soil moisture and fertility conditions.
Landscape recreational resources
Chud Zavolochskaya (all and measure) was a pagan ethnos. The system of her beliefs has not yet been deeply investigated, but it is reliably known that they had special sanctuaries - places of pagan sacrifices to her main god - Yomal-Yumal. Information about such places is found in the Scandinavian sagas. In the book of the Icelander Snorre Sturleson, which describes the events of the expedition to Biarmia by the Norwegian Torer Dogs, it is said that Torer and his companions, having sold their goods in Biarmia, secretly went to the forest nearest to the village at night and found there a mound surrounded by a wooden fence. The mound consisted of earth, half mixed with gold and silver coins. On the mound stood a wooden statue of the god Yomal, who was depicted as an old man sitting on a tree stump.
