Luxury Singapore Vacations

No longer the land of the stopover, Singapore has become a destination in its own right. Today, travellers in their droves visit The Lion City to bask in its perennial summer weather, shop at the incredible malls, or savor delicious local Asian dishes at the vibrant hawker centers. Away from the center, the Red Dot has many green spaces, including the UNESCO heritage-listed Botanic Gardens, futuristic Gardens by the Bay, and beachy Sentosa Island.

Singapore offers dazzling diversity which blends Chinese, Malay, Indian, Eurasian, and Peranakan cultures. This is best seen in the fusion of cuisines. Sample curries from a banana leaf in Little India, try traditional Nonya cuisine in Joo Chiat, or sample noodles and dumplings in Chinatown.

The architecture is also a fascinating mix of ornate mosques, intricate temples, colonial black, and white houses, and traditional shophouses, set against a backdrop of skyscrapers and cutting-edge buildings. Luxurious accommodation ranges from the breathtakingly modern and statuesque Marina Bay Sands to quirky boutique hotels nestled amongst shophouses and oozing a traditional feel.

Away from the national obsessions of shopping and eating, there are plenty of cultural offerings. Here you’ll find art, heritage, and pampering, and an array of sporting events, music festivals, and luxurious spas.

Beach lovers should head to Sentosa Island where beach clubs line the shores, offering paddle boarding, swimming, and kayaking. At dusk, DJs take over, spinning tunes while the sun casts an orange glow over the water.

For families, popular Universal Studios continues to please, along with Singapore’s world-famous Aquarium, Zoo and Night Safari.
