Singapore offers a fascinating blend of rich colonial history, iconic modern architecture, sensational shopping and endless dining, cultural and entertainment opportunities. Explore vibrant markets, dine at the world’s first Michelin-starred hawker stall, shop until you drop at the fashion houses of Orchard Road or lose yourself in the colourful diversity of Little India, Chinatown or Kampong Glam. After dark, head to the lively entertainment hubs of Clarke Quay and Robertson Quay to sample the tantalising range of restaurants, bars and nightclubs.
As one of Asia’s greenest cities, Singapore boasts huge tracts of tropical greenery and beautiful botanic gardens. Be sure to visit the pioneering Supertree Grove and Cloud Forest at Gardens by the Bay and of course the dazzling Marina Bay waterfront. Just beyond the city itself the fun-filled island of Sentosa is hugely popular with families and offers exciting theme parks, relaxing nature walks and beaches.
Singapore is also a great hub for the rest of Asia and beyond. The airport alone is worthy of a trip all for itself. Whether the soul destination or a stopover during a longer trip. A few days spent in Singapore are sure to leave lasting memories.

When to Visit
The best time to visit Singapore depends on what you want to see and do, as the city enjoys a year-round warm and tropical climate, with plenty of sunshine. Although most days will be interrupted by a swift and torrential downpour. Singapore is a cultural melting pot so there are numerous festivals throughout the year ranging from Diwali to Chinese New Year and one of the world’s biggest Christmas celebrations on Orchard Road, this is the perfect time to visit if you’re looking to experience the local culture and traditions. In September Singapore hosts the annual Grand Prix so the city tends to get significantly busier but for any F1 fans this event is not to be missed!
