No longer the land of the stopover, Singapore is now most definitely a destination in itself.
Bask in the sun and sip a cocktail 650 feet above sea level, hunt for trinklets and savour local fare in the ethnic districts, traipse through the Botanical Gardens and the Night Safari – there is much to do here in the city of Lightfoot’s birthplace.
Cultivated to be one of the fastest growing cities in the Asia Pacific, Singapore had its humble roots as a trading port in Sir Raffles’ time. It is unsurprising that the city-state has always been favoured for being a confluence of cultures. This is distinctly apparent in its cuisine, a delightful blend of Malay, Chinese and Indian flavours from which its main population is comprised.
Also in bleeding through in its architecture, a wonderous amalgamation of ornate mosques, intricate temples, a scattering of colonial black & white houses, traditional shop-houses all against the ever-soaring backdrop of offices and apartments.
With its high-end restaurant, bar and retail openings, Singapore has established itself as one of the world’s premier city breaks.
