Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Maritime Centre Vellamo and Kansallisgalleria. Shop till you drop at Hakaniemi Market and Okra. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Castle Hill (in Porvoo) and Bellevue Beach (in Hanko). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), take a stroll through Katajanokka, and learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August in Helsinki, expect temperatures between 24°C during the day and 13°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
