Where to stay in Singapore

Where to stay in Singapore

Singapore is a thriving cosmopolitan city that is constantly reinventing itself to attract more visitors to the island state. Every time we return there is more to see and do.
But where to stay? Read on as we give you some tips and insight to help with your planning.

Singapore’s Identity and Top Reasons to Visit Singapore

FINANCIAL HUB

Singapore is regarded as a major financial and business hub for Asia and the thousands of expats living and working here can attest to that. The government is trying its best to atrract more investment. Singapore’s port and airport are also among the busiest in the world.

LAWS

Singapore has long been famous as a place that stands for no nonsense and you still find the popular t-shirts that list the fines applicable for various offences like chewing gum, not flushing public toilets and jaywalking. Locals insist that the crackdown on these minor offences has been relaxed but it always pays to double check and obey the laws!

SENTOSA

This island has gone from a sleepy wasteland to a fun-filled family getaway with large resort style hotels and attractions to match. Take a downhill luge, enjoy Universal Studios or take a plunge at the Adventure Cove water park. Sentosa must be on your to do list, especially for the kiddies!

GARDENS BY THE BAY

This nature park set on reclaimed land is expanding all the time and includes the stunning flower dome and accompanying cloud forest. At night, enjoy the amazing supertrees show. All a stones throw from Marina bay sands and the Singapore Flyer.

MULTICULTURALISM

Having 4 official languages, Singapore is a delightful mix of Chinese, Malay, English and Indian influences. With these come the exotic cuisine, traditions and language.

Enjoy the various festivals held throughout the year to celebrate multiculturalism.

SHOPPERS PARADISE?

Like Hong Kong, Singapore is also famous for its endless supply of air-conditioned shopping malls and to emphasise the point they have a whole street or district dedicated to it around Orchard Road. Locals spend hours window shopping and snacking at the thousands of eateries also found in Singapore. But its not cheap, Singapore now focuses on high end consumers and bargains are harder but not impossible to find.

HAWKER CENTRES

One of the best reasons to come to Singapore is the street food and specifically the famous hawker stalls. Locations like Lau Pa Sat and Newton Circus are packed most nights with locals and tourists alike chomping down on Hainan chicken rice, stingray and roast duck and all washed down with a cold Tiger Beer. A must-do in Singapore.

TOURISM

Singapore is well-known as a stopover destination but is now encouraging more and more people to treat it as a destination in its own right. New attractions are being added to the star line up all the time. Marvel at the Supertrees or spend big at the newest casino. Singapore has something for all!
