Here are five of Singapore’s most enticing attributes:

  • A City in Nature

Singapore, which is one of the greenest cities in the world, plays home to a thriving network of green spaces where nature is restored into urban environments. Explore Singapore Botanic Gardens, which are on the UNESCO’s World Heritage List; Singapore’s islands, rich with nature and wildlife; take a trip to Singapore Zoo or discover the hidden natural beauty of the city-state with a hiking trail.

  • Multiculturalism

The cosmopolitan nature of Singapore is a feature which keeps travellers returning time and time again. Take a private food tour of China Town, explore different cultures in Little India and Kampong Gelam, or discover Peranakan culture as you stroll past heritage shophouses in Katong-Joo Chiat.

  • Exciting food culture

Last year, a total of 55 establishments were awarded with Michelin Stars – including street food stall Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle. Elsewhere, Singapore’s Hawker Culture has been inscribed on UNESCO’s Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

  • Connectivity

With ample connectivity and accessibility, with strong uplift from the UK, Singapore is the perfect choice for a fly-cruise break. Singapore Changi International Airport is just an 30-minute drive from Marina Bay Cruise Centre, both are which situated in the city, removing the hassle of long-winded pre- and post-travel for your clients.

  • Awe-inspiring architecture 

World-renowned for its architectural ingenuity, Singapore features some of the globe’s most recognisable infrastructure. Visit the Gardens by the Bay with its two huge, contemporary glass structures; Merlion Park and its striking waterfront feature; or the 55-story-high Marina Bay Sands.
