For a Far-Eastern adventure with a twist, book your seats on flights to Singapore…
Come for the food: Singapore sizzles with juicy chilli crab, thick noodles with lashings of curry, and simple but delicious chicken rice. From the unpretentious environs of the street hawker stalls to the swankiest of linen-laden restaurant tables, the cuisine in Singapore never disappoints and your holiday album will burst with foodie photos.
Come for the drink: a Singapore Sling to be specific, amid the colonial grandeur of the famous Raffles hotel.
Come for the family fun: Sentosa Island has beaches, themes parks, water parks and fantastic family hotels.
Come for the culture: with an absorbing fusion of influences from India, Malaysia, China and even Britain (Singapore was once a British outpost), this city-state mesmerises from the moment you step outside the airport.

Helping you to Travel Super to Singapore: it’s what we do.
There is a huge choice of flights available from the UK to Singapore, with several daily non-stop departures...
British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and Singapore Airlines all fly from London’s Heathrow to Singapore’s Changi Airport (SIN), taking around 13 hours to reach the city. Singapore Airlines also flies daily from Manchester.
Alternatively, take a connecting flight. Etihad, Emirates and Qatar fly via their Middle Eastern hubs from London, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Newcastle. Turkish Airlines also flies from Birmingham, London, Manchester and Edinburgh via Istanbul, while KLM goes through Amsterdam, Air France via Paris and Lufthansa via Frankfurt. SAS, Swiss and Finnair fly via Copenhagen, Zurich and Helsinki respectively.
If you want to make the long haul east before connecting, you can also consider Thai via Bangkok, Sri Lankan through Colombo or Malaysian via Kuala Lumpur.
In clean and efficient Singapore, getting to and from the airport is a breeze…
You’ll arrive at Singapore Changi Airport, one of the best and the busiest on the planet. As an international air hub and popular stopover destination, the airside facilities here are fantastic.
Transportation options are pretty neat too. Take your pick from buses, trains and taxis, or hire a car in Singapore and get about at your own pace. You can pre-book car hire with TravelSupermarket to save money on the walk-up rate.
The 36/36A bus service runs from the airport to central stops. The journey time is an hour and tickets cost two Singapore dollars (about £1). Shuttle bus services are available to all of the major hotels in Singapore (check if your hotel runs one). It’s likely to cost around $10 each but the door-to-door convenience might be worth the extra outlay.
Faster than the bus but just as cheap are the MRT trains. You’ll have to change at Tanah Merah station in either direction, but the entire journey to somewhere central, such as City Hall, should take no more than 40 minutes.
A taxi between the airport and the city costs between $20 and $40, depending on the traffic and the time (evening and peak-time surcharges apply).
Don’t be overwhelmed by Singapore’s huge accommodation scene, TravelSupermarket is here to help you find the right hotel…
Try to resist a peek at the map first off. Singapore sprawls across nearly 300 square miles and can be quite daunting for first-time visitors.
The main tourist areas are concentrated on the most southerly areas of Singapore: on Sentosa Island, around the colonial district and Fort Canning Park, near the famous quays (such as Clarke Quay), Marina Bay and along the shopping heaven that is Orchard Road. These areas are close together and a hotel anywhere here allows easy access to the main sights, especially as the public transport in Singapore is first class.
Though food and attraction costs can be kept to a minimum, hotels in Singapore can be expensive. Budget hotels are either good in bad locations, or bad in good locations. So it’s worth spending a little more to stay in a decent hotel in a decent location, or splashing out on one of the amazing luxury hotels.
Search for hotels and narrow your selection according to your needs. Whether it’s a five-star pad overlooking Fort Canning Park or a family-friendly hotel with a swimming pool on Clarke Quay, TravelSupermarket’s search powers are at your fingertips.
