Holidays in Singapore provide the ultimate mix of city sightseeing and nature. Discover glittering marinas and UNESCO World Heritage site gardens set against a backdrop of futuristic skyscrapers, malls and upmarket hotels. Singapore is the perfect destination for families, couples and adventurous travellers seeking culture, history and beautiful scenery.
Marina Bay is the heart of Singapore; home to its top restaurants and attractions like the ArtScience Museum. Ride the 165-metre-tall Singapore Flyer for panoramic views of the city, and take a boat across the bay to watch the 8pm laser light show. Don’t miss the city’s most famous attraction, the architecturally-renowned Gardens by the Bay. Stroll through lush landscapes dotted with tropical greenhouses, elevated walkways and supertrees that soar 50 metres into the sky.
Singapore holidays offer natural and multicultural treasures
Singapore boasts a blend of Malay, Chinese, Indian and British cultural influences. Breathe in the aromatic spices of street food in Chinatown and Little India as you explore historic markets and decorative temples.
In the colonial district you can marvel at grand architecture such as St Andrew’s Cathedral and Raffles Hotel. Venture further from the city centre for native flora at the Singapore Botanical Gardens and to see wildlife at Singapore Zoo, including rare white tigers.
Prefer to enjoy a tranquil day on the beach? Then take the ferry or cable car to Sentosa, where you can relax on pristine beaches or visit Resorts World Sentosa for the aquarium and Universal Studios. Stay at one of the best beach resorts near Singapore, the Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa, which is ideal for a Singapore honeymoon.
If you prefer to base yourself in the city centre, opt for one of Singapore’s luxurious hotels such as the Pan Pacific in Marina Bay or Park Regis in Clarke Quay.
For a broader taste of Asia, why not combine your city break in Singapore with a beach escape? Holidays to Singapore and Bali are a popular option, or you can discover unspoiled islands in the Philippines. Adventurous travellers should pair a multi-centre holiday in Singapore with the wildlife-rich rainforests of Borneo, which are just a short flight away. Alternatively, Cambodia gives you the chance to see one of Southeast Asia’s most visited UNESCO World Heritage site, Angkor Wat.

Pan Pacific Singapore
Park Hotel Clarke Quay
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 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.
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.
