Clean streets, top shopping and fine food

As a city break, shopping in Singapore is serious business. For a one-stop shop, the meticulously-landscaped 2.2-kilometre Orchard Road gives you 6 department stores, 22 malls and a bamboozling 5,000 brands. It's not the only kid on the top tourist block either. Landscaped, cage-free and touted as one of the prettiest in the world, Singapore Zoo is home to almost 3,000 free-wheeling animals on 26 hectares.

The official languages of Singapore reflect its diversity: English, Chinese, Malay and Tamil. This in turn makes for gastronomic adventures when dining. When drinking Singapore of course does more than a sling, although if you do wish to indulge in the signature drink, Raffles Hotel is the place to do it. Also at Raffles, the locals have kept the signature high tea experience here too.

Singapore: Marina BayMarina Bay

If your holiday in Singapore is brief but you want to make the most of the climate, head to one of the beaches down south on Sentosa Island. Alternatively, the modern marvel of Marina Bay Sands will keep you entertained in the heart of Singapore. The intergrated hotel hosts a range of entertainment options, shops and restaurants, as well as the Sands Skypark featuring an observation deck and rooftop infinity pool.
