Singapore holidays

The cosmopolitan garden city

The island country of Singapore has been dubbed ‘the Garden City’ – a result of years of successful sustainability efforts. And with its soaring green skyscrapers, treetop walking trails and UNESCO-protected botanical gardens, it’s a fitting nickname. Located south of the Malay Peninsula, this city-state is home to a blend of Asian and European communities. This is a place where cultures come together, which means you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to food and drink, souvenir shopping and attractions. As for getting from A to B? Thanks to the city’s ultra-efficient public transport system, it’s easy to zip from Chinatown to Little India in a matter of minutes.

Whether you’re passing through or simply enjoying Singapore on its own merits, a guided tour takes you under the skin of this magnificent maritime republic. From the striking skyline and exclusive restaurants of Marina Bay to Raffles Hotel and Little India - this is a country of contrasts that will have you enthralled from start to finish. A guided sightseeing tour sets the scene with Singapore’s colonial history and Southeast Asian heritage laid bare. Visits to Sri Mariamman and Thian Hock Keng temples help you unthread the country’s religious leanings; whilst trips over to Sentosa Island unlock sandy beaches, pedestrian promenades, and Universal Studios.

The flight time from the UK to Singapore is just over 13 hours.

You won’t usually need a visa to visit Singapore from the UK. Visit GOV UK for entry requirements to Singapore or, alternatively, visit CIBT visas for more information.
