START IN STYLE: SINGAPORE
Although based on a small island, Singapore has spread outwards and upwards – with every year adding more eclectic sights and experiences to the intoxicating mix. From Changi Airport, you’ll be in the city centre in 30 minutes, ready to relax at your Singapore luxury hotel or strike out and explore.
Take in the temples of Chinatown, the spice stalls of Little India and the Islamic stores of Kampong Glam, which was home to the sultan during the colonial era. After this heady cocktail of culture, seek refuge in one of the city’s serene green spaces. The Botanic Gardens are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the lungs of Singapore. Spread out over 74 hectares, this natural wonderland feels a world away from the city around it.
While many parts of Singapore are steeped in tradition, its innovation in landscape design is other-worldly. Walk across the OCBC Skyway that connects two futuristic Supertrees at Gardens by the Bay. If you’re visiting between 7 and 9pm, you might even catch a glimpse of the dazzling Garden Rhapsody Show.
