The River Safari is Wildlife Reserves Singapore's latest attraction. Set over 12 hectares, the park is Asia's first and only river-themed wildlife park and will showcase wildlife from eight iconic river systems of the world, including the Mekong River, Amazon River, the Congo River through to the Ganges and the Mississippi. The attraction is home to 150 plant species and over 300 animal species including 42 endangered species. River Safari will open to the public on April 3.  (Photo by Chris McGrath/Getty Images)

Largely residential Schöneberg's leafy side streets (especially Goltzstrasse and Akazienstrasse) are lined with stately 19th-century town houses and teem with charming cafes and indie boutiques. The area is also home to Berlin's traditional gay quarter and red-light district, although the latter is gradually being displaced by an influx of galleries and cool bars and restaurants on Potsdamer Strasse. The arrival of a new street art museum has also provided fresh impetus, while the lure of the grand KaDeWe department store with its mesmerising food hall remains unabated.
