Why we Singapore


Treat yourself to a different culinary delight every night.

Singapore’s warm, tropical evenings are ideal for treating yourself to a new and incredible dining experience every night. Start with an icy-cold Tiger beer, best enjoyed as a riverside sundowner at one of the bars dotted along Robertson Quay, where you’ll also find the deliciously authentic hawker food of Lau Pat Sat Market. Eating is considered a national pastime here, and the dining scene reads like a United Nations of cuisine. Head to Tanjong Pagar to find dining hotspots like Duxton Hill and Little Korea. Dempsey Hill is the place to go for tropical oasis vibes, or wander into neighbouring Chinatown to sample traditional delights like satay, noodles and Hainanese chicken rice. 



A shopaholic’s paradise awaits you.

High-end boutiques and vast shopping malls; a myriad of markets and vast department stores: Singapore’s shopping scene is one of the best, and most varied, in the world. You’ll find all the big brands on iconic Orchard Road: a two-kilometre stretch of megamalls and boutiques including Singapore’s first and oldest department store, TANGS, and the futuristic ION Orchard with its eight stories of stores and boutiques. VivoCity is Singapore’s largest shopping mall, located in the HarbourFront precinct of Bukit Merah, while Chinatown’s Street Market is a favourite spot to pick up souvenirs, electronics and antiques in a bustling, vibrant atmosphere.

Embrace your inner beach bunny.

When you find yourself in need of a break from the hustle and bustle of this incredible city, ride the monorail across to Sentosa and then catch a tram to one of the beach clubs that line the island’s beaches. One of the most popular is Tanjong Beach Club – a luxurious sanctuary with a huge pool, you’ll feel you’ve left the city far behind as you tuck into a lazy lunch, weekend brunch or poolside cocktail. The newly opened OLA Beach Club is another great option – a Hawaiian-inspired retreat where you can treat the family to a tasty burger and a fun-filled banana boat ride.

Enough action and adventure for the whole family.

Sentosa Island is also home to Resorts World Sentosa – a collection of theme parks, hotels and S.E.A Aquarium – home to the world’s second largest oceanarium. One day is definitely not enough to experience all the fun that’s on offer here, from the 24 rides, shows and attractions in 7 themed zones of Universal Studios to the high-speed water slides and giant wave pool of Adventure Cove Waterpark. A sunset sailing and dinner cruise aboard the beautiful Royal Albatross tall ship is a magical way to end your visit to this island of adventure.



Explore a garden of wonder in the heart of the city.

Gardens by the Bay is a 250-acre oasis that showcases the most incredible garden artistry – it’s filled with great sculptures, incredible architecture and fascinating flora. Escape into the temperature-controlled Cloud Forest and enjoy the cooling mist of one of the world’s largest indoor waterfalls, or wander amongst the spectacular and ever-changing floral displays in the Flower Dome. Then head for the OCBC Skyway – suspended between two of the Gardens’ iconic ‘Supertrees’ at 22 metres above ground, this 128m-long aerial walkway offers the amazing views across downtown Marina Bay.
