Singapore itself offers visitors affordable 5-star accommodation in an eclectic environment melding western and oriental traditions. Experience shopping Singapore style at the "pasar malam" (night market) along famous Bugis Street; visit Boat Quay for dinner by the Singapore River; sample Singapore's very own concoction, the 'Singapore Sling' at the world famous Raffles Hotel; or experience adventure on the world's first Night Safari where the mystery and drama of the jungle unfolds at night with stunning effect through 40 hectares featuring over 1,200 animals of more than 110 exotic species.

Take the scenic cable car to Sentosa and travel the monorail through the tree-tops to the island's attractions with striking views of the Singapore skyline; cruise on a Chinese Junk - an exact replica of a famous Imperial vessel of the Ming Dynasty; or take a romantic Sunset Dinner Cruise.

IDEM 2006 provides Australian and New Zealand dentists with the opportunity of a short, tax deductible break to a busy city in the heart of Asia with a range of activities for families, excellent international cuisine and world-class accommodation, all only a relatively short flight away.
