Singapore Holidays

Holidays in Singapore have all the elements of a perfect city break in Asia – mouth-watering cuisine, awe inspiring colonial sites, vibrant shopping opportunities and top notch hotels. This cosmopolitan island state is a true medley of different cultures. Single travellers, families, groups and couples will find plenty to keep them amused, whether that’s absorbing incredible views from the Singapore Flyer 165m up, exploring a bustling street market or admiring resplendent orchids in the Botanic Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Its compact size – just 31 miles across – means all its best parts are easily accessed. Zip around on the ultra-efficient MRT public transport system, stopping to explore Baba House, a 19th Century heritage home, before heading up to MacRitchie Reservoir for a calming escape.

You’ll be mesmerised by this island city-state and home of the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple. One minute you’ll walk through serene and manicured gardens where locals practice the elegant art of Tai Chi, the next, you’ll be pacing an ultra-modern metropolis where gilded shrines run shoulders with ultra-modern skyscrapers. There’s at least one side of this enthralling place that will grab your attention.

  • Chinatown Singapore

    Chinatown and Little India

    The spices and sensations of India and China await you – take a stroll down Serangoon Road and be enticed by the smells, colours and textures of authentic Indian cuisine and crafts. Try on a silk sari in the Little India Arcade, popping in for a battery recharging coconut ladoo before perusing the silverware. In Chinatown, visit the majestic Thian Hock Keng – the oldest Chinese temple in Singapore and sample Hainanese chicken rice, a dish adapted from early Chinese residents.

  • Natural spaces

    You might not expect it from a huge city, but Singapore holidays present ample opportunities for exploring the natural world and its species. At Gardens by the Bay, be wowed by the manmade trees and lose yourself in a sea of colour in the Flower Dome, the world’s largest glass greenhouse. Out of town, follow walking trails and cross tree top bridges before getting close to crocodiles, wild boar and monkeys in nature reserves.
