Singapore

Known to be a wealthy playground, a luxury holiday in Singapore is almost guaranteed with bespoke experiences abounding. The country is made up of 46 islands, the centre of which is the main island of Pulau Ujong (Singapore). Small enough to be intimate while also being large enough to make revisiting an exciting experience every time, the area offers futuristic facilities integrated with natural cultivation, to provide you with a city break like you’ve never dreamed of.

Considered one of the easiest Far Eastern countries to acclimatise to for us Brits, English is widely spoken with written signage offering both local and English directions. This is especially useful when getting to grips with the area’s incredibly convenient public transport system, known as the MRT, which will have you zipping around the capital city in no time.  

One of the best cities in the world for a high-end shopping extravaganza, retail addicts will adore the range of luxury designers on offer in Singapore’s glam quarters. Looking for a more boutique experience? Head to Haji Lane, the trendy district in town where you can purchase one-of-a-kind clothes and accessories. For a traditional experience of opulent fashion, head to the famous Orchard Road for a therapy treatment that can only come from shops like Alexander McQueen, Valentino and more.

If any fashionistas out and about on Orchard Rd. happen to be foodies too, then you are in the right place for the fine dining meal of your dreams. With more than 10 of the city’s Michelin-starred eateries gathered in one place, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Alternatively, if you’ve taken your shopping trip further afield to Marina Bay Sands, you’ll be greeted by a host of celebrity chef dining options including Wolfgang Puck and Tetsuya Wakuda. To get to grips with local eating culture, check out any nearby hawker centre, such as Chomp Chomp, where they serve cuisine that’s a significant cut above typical stall fare.

Budding photographers will also go wild for this city where you’ll find plenty to fill up your Instagram feed. With scenic skywalks, like the Fort Siloso Skywalk everywhere you look, you’ll have a bird’s eye view of the city that it would be impossible to pass up on. Particular spots of interest are the sky-high bars 1-Altitude and Level 33 or the ocean-side Marina Bay. It’s also worth noting that these spots are particularly scenic on the 9th of August (Singapore Independence Day) thanks to an annual spectacular fireworks display.

If you want to spend a day escaping the urban grind but don’t want to venture too far outside the city limits, there are a number of stunning nature spots in and about the region that are not to be missed out on. The most obvious stop on the agenda is the world-famous Gardens by the Bay alongside the UNESCO World Heritage site, Singapore Botanic Gardens.

If fashion, food and photography come second best in your heart to thrilling sports, Singapore also has a little something to offer you. The city is home to the world’s first night time F1 Grand Prix. So, skip the club and get down to the track during racing months for a night you won’t forget! 


WINGED BOOTS WISDOM

If you hadn’t heard before, Singapore is known for strictly enforcing its laws and customs which, if you’re not careful, could earn you an expensive telling-off. Punishable offences include littering, importing or selling chewing gum, failing to flush the lavatory and smoking in all indoor public spaces as well as overhead bridges and outdoor hospital compounds.

Singapore in a Nutshell

Tastes to Try
 
  • Singaporeans are incredibly proud of their country’s cuisine and it’s easy to see why – it’s pretty spectacular. Even the Singapore hawker food is of a higher standard than the fare you’ll find in many high street restaurants in England! One dish you simply have to try during your stay is the national dish, chilli crab.
     
  • For a taste of something local, head to the Chinatown Complex, the city’s most popular food court. A testament to the high standards of the fare on offer here, it’s home to a Michelin one star stall called liao fan Hong Kong soya sauce chicken rice and noodle. Prepare for queues though as this popular eatery only has 180 chickens on sale a day.
     
  • If you prefer a fine dining experience then be sure to make a reservation at the Joël Robuchon Restaurant on Sentosa Island. Owned by 23 timed Michelin-star chef Joël Robuchon, the eatery has its own array of stars and accolades to its name.
     
  • For dinner with an unparalleled view, why not dine aboard the Singapore flyer? An iconic landmark, here you’ll be treated to a four-course meal of sheer bliss. Soak in those skyline vistas while revelling in the scents of a gourmet fare atop the world’s largest observation wheel and enjoy the world’s first butler meal service at 165 metres from the ground.
     
After Dark Destinations 
 
  • As VIP as it gets, make sure you snag yourself an invitation during F1 season to the Amber Lounge. A travelling after-party experience, this elite nightlife destination is the world’s most exclusive Grand Prix event which follows the racing series around the world. Rub elbows at the star-studded event with famous names in the driving world at this unmissable stop.  
     
  • Another bright spot in Haji Lane, Bar Stories is the perfect watering hole to spend your nights in style. With no menu of drinks to rely on, you’re at the mercy of your bartender, who’ll serve you cocktails of their own recommendation based on your spirit of choice.
     
  • Get ready to work it twerk it on the dance floor at the Cherry Discotheque. Far from being the outdated 70s-inspired haunt its name suggests, this venue boasts the best music in town. The only hip-hop joint you need to frequent in Singapore, the music is overseen by W Hotel Asia Pacific’s music director, meaning you’ll only be getting the very best tunes.  
     
Family Fun Guaranteed 
 
  • The place to go for a family getaway, Resorts World Sentosa is an island of attractions and adventures that will keep big and little visitors excited and entertained for days. From theme parks and animal interactions to eateries and restaurants, there’s a little something for everyone.
     
  • One for all the family, Universal Studios Singapore invites you to step inside the silver screen with state-of-the-art rides, exciting shows and plenty of other activities based on your favourite films. With seven zones in which to find the fun, jump into Hollywood, New York, Sci-Fi City, Ancient Egypt, Lost World, Far Far Away or Madagascar.
     
  • For a day of thrills and spills in the water, you have to make Adventure Cove Waterpark a stop on your to-do list. When you’re not riding the rapids, or twisting and turning on the Whirlpool ride, snorkel the day away in Rainbow Reef where you’ll swim alongside nearly 20,000 fish. Try not to get lost in the Wet Maze where wrong turns end in a soaking or come face to face with fear in a sharky encounter.
     
  • If you want to make some new flippered friends then Dolphin Island should be the next stop on your quest for fun. Offering a range of interactive programmes, you’ll be able to play about with Indo-Pacific Bottlenose dolphins in the pool, take some seriously cool snaps and learn a little more about the creatures, all at the same time!
