Start your Journey
Singapore is one of the most contemporary cities in the world. Take in the slick city streets, the looming modern buildings and the luxury hotels and shopping malls.
Indulge in a dose of retail therapy as you browse the malls of Orchard Road. Or for thrills and spills, head to Universal Studios on Sentosa Island for soaring rollercoasters and entertaining shows. Featuring lush rainforests, lavish spas and golden sandy beaches, there’s plenty to do on Sentosa Island.
For panoramic views of Marina Bay, hop on the Singapore Flyer, the world’s largest observation wheel. From such heights, you can truly appreciate the glamour and beauty of Singapore.
A city for foodies, stroll through the buzzy streets of Chinatown to feast on Chinese fare. Or amble down Food Street to take your pick from a range of cuisines. Chinatown is also a fantastic spot to pick up gifts and souvenirs, with a mix of traditional shops and markets lining the colourful streets.
Cebu, The Philippines
Swap city sightseeing in Singapore for laidback island life in Cebu in The Philippines. Many luxury hotels sit on Mactan Island, which is accessed by a bridge via the main island of Cebu.
While the beaches on Mactan Island are manmade, they feature caster sugar white sands and crystal blue waters. Head into the ocean for a spot of snorkelling or diving to discover the underwater world of colourful fish that live off the sandy shores.
With fantastic boat and airport links to the nearby islands, Cebu provides an ideal base for island hopping in The Philippines. Head to Oslob for a once in a lifetime opportunity to swim with the enormous but harmless whale sharks on the South of the island.
Or, head to Bohol to witness the mysterious Chocolate Hills, a beautiful geographical formation made up of at least 1,260 green hills that stretch into the distance. Another option is a visit to the island of Boracay, which is home to dazzling white sands and a buzzy beach holiday atmosphere.
