More about Singapore

A centre of culture

Due to its strategic location in Asia and its status as one of the world’s most important ports, Singapore has always been a centre for trade and cultural exchange.

This legacy lives on today in the multicultural population and diversity of heritages you'll find here.

During your holiday to Singapore, it's worth venturing into the cultural enclaves of Little India and Chinatown.

Here you’ll have a chance to discover more about the roots and heritage of this island nation, not to mention the opportunity to explore the excellent markets and taste the fabulous food on offer.

Natural beauty

Even if you’re on a flying visit, a Singapore city break wouldn’t be complete without spending some time in one of its many lovely green spaces. Even from the heart of the city, Singapore’s natural beauty is easily accessible.

The Singapore Botanic Gardens make a delightful place to relax, surrounded by 6,500 species of plants and some attractive landscapes.

Bukit Timah nature reserve protects the last patch of primary rainforest that remains on the island, teeming with exotic plant species as well as macaques and a dizzying variety of birds.

Singapore with kids

If you’re thinking of booking a family holiday in Singapore, rest assured that you'll find plenty to do. Embrace full-on fun at the theme and water parks on Sentosa Island.

You can spend afternoons ziplining above the trees, learning about the damage that plastic is doing to our oceans, or screaming with delight as you plunge down yet another waterslide.

You can even meet your favourite film characters with a trip to Universal Studios, which is packed with technologically advanced rides.

With plenty of exciting attractions, it’s almost impossible for children – whatever their age – to be bored.
