While Singapore is best known for its award-winning airport – and for good reasons thanks to its free cinema screenings, oasis-like butterfly garden and home to world’s tallest indoor waterfall – there’s more to explore beyond the terminal buildings. This island-city state is BIG on food culture, as anyone who has seen Crazy Rich Asians will know, with eating considered a national pastime. Here you’ll find elevated fine-dining restaurants, hawker street food stalls that have been awarded a Michelin-star and some of the world’s best bars – don’t leave without drinking a Singapore Sling at its birthplace, Raffles Singapore. And while there are many, many skyscrapers, you’ll also find plenty of green spaces from the sprawling UNESCO World Heritage Botanic Gardens and the futuristic ‘Supertree Grove’ in the Gardens by the Bay to the lush rainforests of Sentosa Island. Our favourite way to experience Singapore? Turn your trip into a twin-centre with another south-east Asian destination, pairing a few days here to break up the journey with a beach stay in Bali, wildlife adventure in Malaysia or temple-filled trek through Thailand.
