ya, let us know what recommendation you need, and details like how long will u be here, etc.
one of singapore's main tourist venue is the sentosa island. i'm not sure if you've heard bad things (ie boring, waste money, etc) about it, but they are gradually changing for the better. of course, there are many other possible things you can do in singapore. it's difficult for us to recommend if we do not know what you like.
there is a tourist information center opened recently at orchard road, one of our major shopping areas. you can look for some information there as well.

I would recommend you take the local transport like bus and mrt (metro). Just wonder around the island and get off the transport when u spot anything that fancy you. When you are tired, just flag a cab to bring you back to your hotel. Singapore is so small that it is difficult to get lost, yet is dense enough to contain 4 million people.

For everything Malay, you can go to Geylang Serai. For everything Chinese you can visit Chinatown as for everything Indian you can stroll down Serrangoon Road or Little India.
Another interesting part of Singapore is the FOOD......
Every each individual races have their own specialties. And I suggest you try all of them. If you're a Muslim/mulismah (majority of turkish is Muslim/muslimah rite) don't worry, there're alot of 'HALAL' restaurants around the Island, be it Chinese or Indian restaurant. As for the Malays, majority of us are Islam.
As for places of interest, I suggest you visit the places of worship especially the Chinese temples & Hindu temples. For photograph taking at this places please ask for permission first.
Enjoy your stay in Singapore....
