If you can drag yourself away from the shops for a while, here’s some great attractions to visit… SINGAPORE FLYER When opened in 2008, the Singapore Flyer was the tallest ferris wheel in the world. It’s a feat that even now, only a couple other wheels have surpassed. Located across the harbour from the city, the Flyer’s 28 air conditioned pods offer awesome views back across the city skyline, particularly good at night. MARINA BAY SANDS This massive complex consists of more than 2500 hotel rooms, a convention centre, a mall, two theatres, seven ‘Celebrity Chef’ restaurants, an ice skating rink, a casino… you get the drift right? It has everything! But the most famous feature is the ‘SkyPark’, a 340 metre long structure that sits atop three skyscrapers. Here you’ll find the world’s largest infinity pool (which visitors can swim in), restaurants, bars, and unbeatable city views. GARDENS BY THE BAY By now you should know that Singapore isn’t afraid to go big, and their Gardens by the Bay is no exception. This 54 hectare park has oodles of themed gardens from around the world, stunning architecturally designed conservatories, and the unique, soaring, 50 metre Supertrees which look like something out of Avatar. Better yet, most of it is free! CHINATOWN Chinatown is always a colourful part of any major city, and Singapore’s doesn’t disappoint. Head for Mosque, Temple or Pagoda Street for all sorts of cheap goods and tacky souvenirs, plus nearby Smith Street for great cheap eats. Free walking tours of the precinct can also be taken from the Chinatown Heritage Centre. SINGAPORE PINACOTHEQUE DE PARIS You’ve probably never associated names like Monet, Picasso or Renoir with Singapore before, but you can now. The famous Paris institution has opened its first premises outside of France, at Singapore’s Fort Canning. Here you can view over 40 ‘old Masters’, as well as travelling exhibits. SENTOSA ISLAND Just to south of Singapore is the island of Sentosa. The entire island has been transformed into a resort with themeparks, zoos, tons of family friendly attractions, golf clubs, beaches, and a plethora of international chain hotels, restaurants and shops. Pride of place is Universal Studio’s which features plenty of thrilling rides based around movies such as Shrek, Jurassic Park and Madagascar. There’s also butterfly park with over 15,000 butterflies (not to mention other insects); aquariums with sharks, dolphins and turtles; Madame Tussauds, and so much more. If you have the kids in tow, a visit to Sentosa is a must. RAFFLES HOTEL The historic five star hotel is an oasis in a desert of skyscrapers, and her plush restaurants and bars are the perfect place to rest your feet. Don’t miss Long Bar, where the Singapore Sling was invented in 1915. > READ MORE ABOUT SINGAPORE HERE > VIEW HOT DEALS TO SINGAPORE HERE Enquire Now First name* Last name* Email* Phone How can we help?
