Singapore is a modern and vibrant destination with an exciting cultural and social scene. A centre for international business, tourism and a melting pot of cultures, Singapore is a sophisticated Asian holiday location.
A former British colonial outpost, the city is now a busy port with a cityscape to rival that of Manhattan. If you fancy sampling a Singapore Sling cocktail head to the legendary Long Bar at the elegant Raffles Hotel, where the drink was first created in 1915.
The areas of Chinatown, Arab Street and Little India provide excellent photography opportunities, while the panoramic views from the Sky Tower are breathtaking.
Singapore is known for its many shopping malls and street markets where you can shop for designer goods, local artefacts, antiques or fine fabrics. Museums and galleries are perfect for culture enthusiasts, and restaurants offer international cuisine. Riverside is the perfect place to go to relax after a day’s sightseeing, where you can enjoy a meal, drinks and listen to live music.
