Tourism is Singapore’s mainstay, and the city-state excels at it. The charm of this small island nation hits you as soon as you arrive at Changi Airport, which is a destination in and of itself, with a mighty waterfall, a 3,000-tree forest, and numerous attractions tucked within.
Singapore exudes big-city vibes. Shoppers will be drawn to ritzy Orchard Road and the Chinatown night market gastronomes, be on the lookout! Singapore is teeming with world-class dining establishments, ranging from Michelin-starred restaurants to great hawker stalls. Expect a dizzying array of high-quality cuisines; there is a genuine passion for food here. Jazz bars, nightclubs, and spectacular art, dance, and musical performances at Esplanade – Theatres by the Bay are just a sampling of the available entertainment. Sentosa is unrivalled in joy, and both locals and visitors flock to this well-known attraction. It has Universal Studios, an oceanarium, and a water theme park. The Singapore Zoo and Night Safari, an open-concept zoo with a special section for nocturnal animals, is noteworthy.
Despite its modernity, Singapore is rightfully known as the Garden City, with towering skyscrapers (the most notable are the Marina Bay Sands) and hipster hangouts like Haji Lane. When you’re tired of the concrete, take refuge in its lush greenery. Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Gardens by the Bay, Singapore Botanic Gardens and Sungei Buloh Wetlands are all excellent places to get some fresh air and relax in nature.
Beyond the glitz of the waterfront, the city’s colonial and traditional sides are worth exploring in neighbourhoods such as Little India, Chinatown, and Kampong Glam. Singapore’s cultural diversity is displayed in the Katong district, embedded in three major traditions: Malay, Indian, and Chinese. Tiong Bahru is a mix of old and new, with quaint shophouses, hawkers, art deco architecture, and charming cafés and boutiques.
Singapore is unlike any other Asian city. And it is friendly and welcoming, just like the Vibes Group UK consultants who will assist you in planning a trip to this beautiful, tropical fusion of east and west.
