Singapore and Bali Multi Centre

Cosmopolitan city meets romantic island escape

Singapore is without doubt one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. With its ultra -modern streets, colonial monuments and nearby Sentosa – home to Universal Studios, this glistening metropolis has it all. Shopaholics will love the mesmerising number of malls along Orchard Road, while younger visitors will be fascinated by the night safari and zoo. Add to this the Singapore Flyer and the iconic Raffles Hotel and you’re only just scratching the surface of this spectacular city-state.

However, if you can’t decide between a city break and a relaxing beach escape, a short two hour flight to the idyllic Indonesian island of Bali should be just what you’re looking for. Encircled by turquoise waters, Bali’s laid back atmosphere and dreamy sunsets are perfect for the romantic at heart. The island offers a variety of different beach resorts, from the luxurious gated development of Nusa Dua, to traditional Sanur where small hotels are scattered along the sandy shores. Head further inland to Ubud and you will discover lush rice terraces, ancient temples and thriving arts and crafts communities. Bali is the ultimate place to relax and unwind and with regular flight connections from Singapore, it’s never been easier to experience both destinations in one holiday.

Our Experts Recommend:
  • Shop till you drop on Singapore's Orchard Road
  • Relax at your beachfront hotel in Bali
  • Only two hours flight between Singapore and Bali

Itinerary Breakdown

Begin your journey in cosmopolitan Singapore, despite its size this tiny city-state certainly packs a lot in. We recommend spending three nights here to really get a feel for the destination and to allow enough time to experience some of the key attractions. Singapore is famous for its shopping and the malls of Orchard Road should definitely be on your hit list if you're looking for well known labels. However, we also suggest exploring the districts of Little India and Chinatown where you can find some more authentic gifts including beautiful saris and aromatic spices. On a sunny day why not take a ride on the Singapore Flyer, the world’s largest observation wheel and enjoy panoramic views of the Marina Bay and beyond?

Points of Interest

A peaceful and romantic tropical island, Bali is the dream location for relaxing beach days, delicious Indonesian cuisine and fascinating culture. It would be easy to spend a week lazing on the beaches, exploring the local shops and restaurants or indulging in a spa treatment or two, but there is so much more to this dream destination. Head north to Ubud, the cultural heart of the island and discover thriving arts and crafts communities, the sacred monkey forest and lush rice terraces. Alternatively take a three day trip to the nearby Gili Islands. These undeveloped retreats are snorkelling and diving heaven, and Gili Trawangan hosts weekly parties and a scattering of beach bars. We recommend spending at least a week here to fully relax and unwind after your Singapore city break.

Singapore

Begin your holiday with three nights in Singapore, one of Asia's most modern and clean cities. We recommend this duration to give you enough time to explore the many attractions that this tiny city state packs in. Getting around in Singapore is incredibly easy with a very easy to use underground train system known as the MRT, and taxi's also being easy to come by and cheap for city standards. Start your day enjoying panoramic views of the city from the observation deck at the top of Marina Bay Sands before heading to Clarke Quay for a tasty lunch along the riverbanks. In the afternoon take a stroll around Little India and Chinatown, purchase some local souvenirs before settling down for a tasty and cheap street food dinner.

Bali

From Singapore there are many direct flights to Bali every day, taking around two hours and 30 minutes. Our recommendation is seven nights in Bali as you will likely want to spend a few days relaxing on the beach or by the pool after a busy few days exploring Singapore's sights. Once you've got your energy back why not arrange trips to see more of what Bali has to offer, perhaps a tour of the most popular temples or a day in Ubud where you can visit the Sacred Monkey Forest, temples and markets.
