Traditionally a stopover on a long haul flight, Singapore is a destination in its own right.
Explore Singapore's main attractions
A relaxing cruise along the Singapore River that offers scenic views of the city's colonial buildings and its modern skyscrapers can be combined with an extravagant afternoon tea in the Tiffin Room at the 19th Century Raffles Hotel or at Ah Teng's Bakery. And of course, no visit to Singapore is complete without a cocktail at the Long Bar in Raffles Hotel, where visitors are encouraged to drop peanut shells on the floor, just as Somerset Maugham and Rudyard Kipling would have done "back in the day".
Nocturnal night safari
The Night Safari is a must-see. Using special lighting techniques and set in lush rainforest, the world’s first night zoo reveals what over 2500 nocturnal animals from 130 species get up to after dusk, in naturalistic habitats and without barriers. To see the zoo, take a 50 minute tram ride and observe lions gnawing on their dinners, mountain deer in striking poses and a rhino taking a bath. At designated points, visitors can disembark the tram to follow four walking trails in order to get closer to flying squirrels, dangling bats and a leopard or two.
Dine in the clouds
Rooftop bars in Singapore are a hot topic, each of them offering something different. 1-Altitude is 63 storeys up at One Raffles Place and is both the highest and one of the swankiest place to drink. CE LA VI, at the top of Marina Bay Sands Complex, has separate zones including a restaurant, chill-out lounge and a poolside terrace, while LeVel 33 is the highest microbrewery in the world, with stunning views of Marina Bay, house-brewed craft beers and gourmet-style pub grub. Cover charges may apply but the views make it worth it.
Super Sentosa Island
Sentosa Island is where the city comes to play. Theme and water parks, the S.E.A aquarium, beaches, Sentosa Golf Club and much more just 15 minutes away from the city centre on a monorail ride or on the cable car from Harbourfront.
