About Cairns

Cairns is located in the northern part of Queensland and is the area’s core city. Cairns is located very close to the equator and is completely surrounded by tropical rainforests. With its long Great Barrier Reef, stunning coastline, jewel-like islands, silver-sand beaches and sapphire blue ocean, it is a true tropical holiday destination. While here, you can take a boat out to the world-famous Great Barrier Reef and check out the coral life beneath the sea. You can also go whitewater rafting, horseback riding, or take a trip in a hot air balloon for a bird’s-eye view of the ancient tropical rainforest. The beautiful scenery on the shores of the Pacific Ocean and inland is sure to come as a pleasant surprise. Once is never enough, when it comes to a visit to Cairns.

Beach
The Corniche is the hub of Cairns' life and the iconic landscape of Cairns. It is a boulevard full of the charm of a seaside resort. The coastal boulevard is built along the beach. The road stretches along Sany Bay. On one side is the scenery of the beach, the blue sky, the bright sunshine, and the neat high-rise building on one side. The Spencer Street has a Marin breakwater towards the sea, and visitors to the boat trip make the place very lively.

Trip Moments

Hero_V5   
Singapore is a country I’ve always liked, not only because the city is very clean, organized and beautiful, not to mention, it is famously known as a “garden city”, but also because hard-working and brave Singaporeans created many global miracles on this little piece of land, making it a logistics and freight center for Asia and the world. Clarke Quay really sees this difference between the past and present. Back then it was just a little port offloading goods, now it has become an entertainment central, bustling with activity.
Surrounded by high rises, Clarke Quay is filled with 2 to 3 story high, South Asian style houses. You really see quite the visual contrast here. In these well decorated 2 and 3 story houses, you will find places offering shopping, wine and dine, and entertainment experiences. Not only are they popular among locals, American, European and Chinese tourists really enjoy these locales too.
Clarke Quay is a place where you can find excellent food all around Singapore. As we all know, Singapore is a very multicultural country where Chinese, Malays, Indians, Indonesians, Americans and Europeans all live. The multicultural community there has directly contributed to the diversity in Singapore’s gourmet landscape. At Clarke Quay, you can find many ethnic gourmet specialties.
It’s a completely different life from night to day. At night, not only are all bars at Clarke Quay completely filled, even roads at the front are filled with tables and people. A lot of them are primarily locals from Singapore, then Americans and Europeans. They would gather in groups to momentarily ignore the stress in their day to day work, have a drink, chit chat and have a good time.
