Since establishing their independence over 50 years ago, Singapore has grown from a mere stop over city to the number one destination in the world!
A broad mix of cultures, architecture and endless attractions makes Singapore one of the most coveted islands. Not only does it host the most prestigious night race of the Formula One calendar, it’s also home to the most sought-after fashion houses, restaurants and hotels.
Accommodation in Singapore ranges from comfortable to extravagant. Why not splurge and stay a night in the prestigious Raffles hotel, ordering Singapore Slings until the early hours. There is of course Marina Bay Sands, where you can swim to the edge of the 57th floor!
Soak up the different cultures with a stroll through Chinatown, Little India and Geylang. Experience authentic food at the popular Hawker centres and discover hidden treasures at the local markets.
Food is a way of life for Singaporeans, the only rule - eat when you’re hungry! With Hawkers on every corner, and most open 24/7, you can grab hainanese chicken rice or chilli crab whenever you fancy. Fine dining has been transformed into an art form by the amount of Michelin star chefs in Singapore, all offering unique menus.
To satisfy all nature lovers, take a trip to Gardens by the Bay. Enjoy a trek through the SuperTrees, and admire the view from 50ft in the air before heading into the Cloud Forest. Housing an impressive collection of tropical plants, the Cloud Forest is also home to the world’s tallest indoor waterfall.
Singapore Zoo is an absolute must and a great day out for all - treat yourself to breakfast with Orang-utans, enjoy feeding time with the elephants and take a night time safari.
One of Singapore’s greatest developments is Sentosa Island, the State of Fun. Accessible by public transport or cable car, you’re transported to a playground suitable for all ages. Have fun at one of the many beach resorts, saunter along the promenade or really let go and visit Universal Singapore.
Of course, you can’t stay in Singapore without hitting the shops and the only place to be is Orchard Road. With 22 Malls, 6 Department stores and 5,000 brands there is very little chance you will leave empty handed!
