Travel to Singapore
There is nothing common about this country. Everything is extravagant. From its promenades to shopping centres to its exuberant gardens, Singapore is a city of anachronism, or perhaps, decades ahead of its time. It consists of 64 islands, including the mainland, Pulau Ujong welcoming at least 10 million tourists each year.
The city-state that dares to do anything
A city where one feels safe and where abundance seems to go without saying. The city has not its certain British chic either. Geographically, this archipelago has created air and commercial routes. Singapore is an island, a state, an orderly city of 710 km². It has more than 5 million inhabitants. Mixed by its ethnic, religious and cultural diversity. Singapore is the gateway to Asia.
A paradise in which to shop
Here, everything is full of energy. If you plan to visit only two or three days, you can indulge in the national sport: shopping! However, it is a must to wander these areas: Arab Street, Little India, Kampong Glam or the Chinese quarter, the unavoidable Chinatown. You can also discover the old lively districts like Tanjong Pagar where many shophouses have been restored to elegant tea rooms for the trendy population. Don't miss Clarke Quay along the Singapore River and its shopping mall with many restaurants and bars.
As you are wandering around the city, you'll see the unusual Singapore Flyer, the world's tallest Ferris wheel at 165 meters. When you reach the peak of this wheel, you can enjoy a 360° view of the city and its port. An ideal spot to admire the sunset.
Architecture between tradition and modernity
The modern design of Singapore's hotels...
With two centuries of existence, Singapore is the city at its perfection where the modern and traditional is fused together. Make the most of your stay by staying at one of the many luxury hotels in the city. Don't miss the iconic Marina Bay Sands Hotel, located in the heart of Sands SkyPark. This futuristic skyscraper features an infinity pool with stunning views of the city. Indulge yourself in the famous cafes and restaurants perched at the top of these 3 towers.
... to the city's preserved traditions.
Discover buildings that have contributed to the city’s growth and history. It is an experience visiting the Hindu temple, Sri Mariamman, founded in 1827. Also visiting the memorials such as the Kranji War Memorial or the Battle Box will immerse you in the history of the city.
Wild and elegant nature
Visit Garden by the Bay, a true urban garden in the city centre. This more than 100 hectares, botanical garden will make you discover an amazing and futuristic wonderland. To enhance your botanical excursion, thousands of plants from all over the world are waiting for you at the Flower Dome.
Then set sail and explore the island of Pulau Ubin to the north of the city and discover the Chek Jawa Reserve which is one of Singapore's richest ecosystems.
A cosmopolitan cuisine
Discovering Singapore is also about indulging in a taste experience. The food here has always been the pride of Singaporeans. Restaurants and food stalls enhance the city streets. If you want to enjoy the best food in the neighborhood, keep an eye on the longest queue and queue up! Singaporeans are capable of being very patient for a good meal. Want to try something traditional? Then why not try the kopitiam (traditional coffee shop)? These coffee shops offer simple dishes made from fresh produce at affordable prices.
