Sensational shopping and a space-age skyline combine with an explosive food culture on holidays to Singapore

Singapore is a multicultural garden city where 21st-Century skyscrapers sit side by side with a rich colonial past. Extravagant, wealthy and packed full of contrasts, this is a city-state with an infectious energy, renowned for its sensational shopping malls, street markets and mouth-watering cuisine. Home to the cheapest Michelin-starred meal in the world and a space-age botanic garden where towering super trees epitomise the modern vision of the city, its riverside setting and beautiful green spaces only add to the charm. Abundant with history and incredible architecture, Singapore is a cosmopolitan outdoor dream; from its sky-rise greenery to the iconic treetop walkways, what once was a high-rise concrete jungle has today transformed itself into one of Asia's greenest cities.

From the shopping utopia of Orchard Road and the ultra-modern Marina Bay to the cultural wonderlands of Chinatown and Little India, Singapore's wide range of districts enchant with their different personalities. Every holiday to Singapore is a little different; you can explore exquisite restaurants serving up a world of culinary adventures, visit charming colonial attractions, take in the outstanding natural beauty and discover a calendar full of exhilarating and colourful events.

Don’t miss the amazing food at Newton Circus. By day it looks like a normal street, but at night it transforms, with an array of Hawker stalls serving the flavours of the Orient.

The city is very clean, almost clinical, but offers quality at every point. During our stay we sipped refreshing Singapore Sling cocktails at the colonial Raffles hotel, with views across the water to the Merlion Statue.
