Well-groomed, modern and super-stylish, Singapore may be small, but it is more-than-perfectly-formed. In fact, it could be described as the definitive ‘model’ city, encompassing an exciting mix of cultures, nightlife, arts and retail therapy, all cloaked in an ultra-efficient, squeaky clean image.

"Singapore charms with its clean-cut looks and super-cool social scene. It’s definitely an experience to savour. Oh, and did we mention the food…? "

A bubbling melting pot. A feast of cultures. A smorgasbord of delights. The food references aren’t accidental: try describing Singapore, and it has to figure pretty large. Eating is a national pastime, and city life revolves around the bars, restaurants and famous hawker centres where almost every flavour is on the menu, combining the very best of Asian cooking.

The city itself is a wonderfully-lush, green and spacious destination, where the call to prayer competes with unbridled capitalism while old men still play mah-jongg in the streets. It’s also a city that can offer you something completely different. Take a trip to Underwater World and you’ll find yourself diving with sharks; enjoy a night-time safari at Singapore Zoo; or visit Bukit Timah Nature Reserve at the island’s centre. But then that’s Singapore all over – a destination unlike anywhere else in the world.
