Flights to Singapore
The tiny city-nation of Singapore has secured a place for itself on the world stage by being one of the most international cities on earth, and is now a major hub for business, tourism and travel. The phrase ‘something for everyone’ is often overused, but in the case of Singapore, it is an apt one. Pleasure seekers can seek entertainment at the plethora of nightlife, shopping and eating options that are all available in this city that never sleeps.
Throw back the city’s signature cocktail, the Singapore sling at the Long Bar of the beautiful Raffles hotel, a colonial landmark of times gone by. Or reach for the stars by heading to one of the many rooftop bars to watch the city skyline come to life at sunset.
For keen shoppers, you can find high-end and high-street shops by walking down the famous Orchard Road, or turn onto Tiong Bahru and Haji Lane for the best boutique shopping in the city. When you're done giving your feet and your credit card a workout, take the time to learn a little about Singaporean cuisine. Try Chicken Rice, Laksa or Char Kway Teow, all dishes that can be found in food hawker centres like the Maxwell or Hong Lim Food Centres.
Attractions of Singapore
Outside of retail therapy, visitors can explore the Gardens by the Bay, a futuristic wonderland of greenery in this cosmopolitan metropolis, or wander through the manicured Botanic Gardens of the city. There are fantastic night safari tours operated by Singapore zoo, where punters can see the nocturnal habits of animals like tarsiers and hyenas. If getting up close and personal with wildlife doesn't interest you, then throw on a pair of comfortable shoes and take a walking tour around the colonial parts of Singapore that are a call back to when British Empire ruled this city-nation as an Asian outpost.

When should you go?
One of the advantages of Singapore’s tropical climate is that it is warm all year, however, the temperature can get particularly intense between June and August, and if you are planning to tour the city, it is best to avoid the city at this time.
