Singapore is a diverse and beautiful place, where high-rise buildings sit among immaculate parks and green spaces and the pace of life seems serene compared to other Asian destinations.
Find out why Singapore deserves much more than a night or two on a long-haul stopover...
Singapore is often used as a stopover for those making their way from the UK and Europe to Australasia. But as its highlights include the famous Raffles hotel, the exciting Sentosa Island - with its Sky Tower, the impressive city zoo, the Singapore Flyer and an eclectic mix of cuisine, this city-state is so much more than a one-night wonder.
A former British colony, the country's population is now an eclectic mix of cultures with influences from India, Malaysia and China. For the traveller this means an array of fine dining establishments within the hotels offering exciting regional cuisine as well as unique fusion dishes. There are also markets selling everything you can possibly imagine. From local noodles and Asian fast food to exotic fruit and vegetables, the choices are endless.
If you have an interest in history, the Tang Dynasty City is a theme park which recreates Singapore's history and includes some original stonework. Many travellers also enjoy a stroll around China Town, the cultural centre of the city, with its ancient temples and monuments. Other popular activities include spotting ships in the busy harbour, visiting Marina Bay, Changi Museum, Johore Battery, Fort Canning Park, Parliament House or the National Museum.
The city zoo is home to a truly unique experience that is the night safari. Here, forty acres of land have been given over as a reserve for nocturnal animals from across the world.
If you want to take in all the landmarks you could try the world's largest observation wheel, the Singapore Flyer, located on Raffles Avenue. Check out the busy marina or the beauty of the National Orchid Garden from a great height.
