Singapore is one of the world’s most tech-forward cities, so it’s no surprise that it’s among the best connected, too. It’s also a great place for culture, thanks to the various Asian and Indian communities that co-exist there. Don’t forget your camera for those epic skyline shots.
One of Singapore’s highlights is the Gardens by the Bay – a 101-hectare nature reserve in the heart of the city. There’s tons to see here, including a grove full of mind-blowing ‘supertrees’ and a suspended path that’s seven stories high.
Never thought you could get a selfie next to a nine-metre-tall, half-fish, half-lion statue? In Singapore, you can! The Merlion is the symbol of Singapore, representing its roots as a fishing village, and its original name, Singupura, which means ‘lion city’. Find it in Merlion Park before enjoying the view of Marina Bay.
Singapore’s National Gallery hosts the world’s largest collection of Southeast Asian art. It’s based in two historic buildings, the former Supreme Court and former City Hall. As well as kilometres of world-class art, you’ll find a roof garden, pool and various restaurants there.
