the melting pot of asia
Perhaps a little biassed (as our travel experts have spent a lot of time here), but Singapore is one of the most mesmerising & captivating cities in the world! By comparison, its a very modern city, founded in the 19th century from politics & trade, with a little help from Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles, who’s early ties to the country are now firmly rooted in the history, culture & architecture of the city.
From enchanting luminescent gardens to soaring skyscrapers; impressive architectural feats to elegant & charming public spaces; from high-end fashion districts to beach islands and so much more, there’s a reason Singapore is known as the melting pot of Asia. Despite being one of the most densely populated places in the world, the city is kept spotless and efficiency is visible everywhere, including the MRT (their subway) and the multi-award winning Changi Airport. Whether you choose to visit the destination itself or turn a connecting flight into a layover, Singapore should be on your bucket list.

Some of our favourite luxury hotels in singapore
The Fullerton Bay
This sleek, modern hotel pays a tribute to the bygone era. With 100 rooms elegantly appointed, this waterfront jewel is a fantastic addition to Singapore’s vibrant heritage precinct, situated just steps away from the famous Merlion and boasting views over the bay. The central location of this property is a key selling point; close to popular sites including Gardens by the Bay, allowing you to easily retreat to this luxury hotel at your convenience during your stay in the city.
At the heart of Sentosa Island are 2 restored colonial bungalows, which now hosts Capella – 112 rooms, suites & villas are immersed across 30 acres of tranquil landscaped grounds. Inspired by the historic spice routes, dining here offers a contemporary twist on authentic Cantonese cuisine, whilst Bob’s Bar is the perfect retreat to watch the sunset with a carefully curated cocktail. Splash out on a Constellation Room and swap the city lights for a private rooftop jacuzzi.
Marina BaY sands
Perhaps one of the most documented hotels of our time, experience infinity at Marina Bay Sands, where the possibilities are endless. From Michelin-starred restaurants to electric nightclubs, an infinity pool to beat all infinity pools, show-stopping entertainment, a world-class spa and even a nightly light & water extravaganza, it’s easy to see why this hotel is so famous. As part of their new Luxe Collection, the Sands Premier Suite is a restorative urban retreat.
Things to do in singapore
The heart of Singapore's retail district, you can find anything from discount outlets to popular department stores to high-end boutiques & designers. Be sure to swing by The Newton Food Centre for a snack amidst your shopping, or for a piece of history, visit Emerald Hill Road - a mix of colourful Chinese baroque houses & casual pubs.
Gardens by the Bay
A fantastic, fun, entertaining and educational day for all awaits at Gardens by the Bay, a nature park spanning 101 hectares. From the Cloud Forest to the Flower Dome to the Supertree Observatory, and you can admire the Garden's iconic structures working in harmony with the flora & fauna. Be sure to stay until it's dark for a spectacle!
If you thought you could haven't a beach so close to a contemporary city, you were wrong - Sentosa is an island home to luxury resorts, Palawan Beach and not to forget, Universal Studios Singapore. Connected to the city by road, cable car, pedestrian boardwalk and monorail, its easy to visit for the day, as well as stay at one of the properties on the island.
Bike Tour of the City
To see as much as of the city & the surroundings as possible, you may need a little extra speed... and 2 wheels. A Lion City Bike Tour is a fantastic way to explore on this guided tour, visiting the Formula 1 trace, Singapore River, Clarke Quay, Little India, Kampong Glam & more, with plenty of time to stop off for photos & a local snack, too.
Jewel @ Changi
It's easy to see why Changi Airport is constantly winning awards - Singapore makes the airport a destination by itself and the introduction of Jewel truly is a shining gem in the crown. This nature-themed entertainment & retail complex is fantastic, but its centrepiece - the world's tallest indoor waterfall, the Rain Vortex - is simply spectacular - a must during your visit!
