GET INTO SINGAPORE

Safe, welcoming, and easy to explore, Singapore is a city-state that thrives on diversity.

A wander around town reveals gleaming modern skyscrapers looming above ornate temples. Just when you’ve glimpsed the future, you can step into the city’s past with a tour around a war memorial. Eat delicious Asian dishes for less than 5 SGD at a hawker centre (open-air food court), or experience fine dining at a Michelin-starred restaurant. If you’re after retail therapy, you’ll find designer stores aplenty on Orchard Road, and hidden gems in the bohemian Haji Lane boutiques. Kick-start your days like a local in Tiong Bahru’s trendy cafés, which serve up brews to please even the pickiest of coffee lovers. Take afternoon tea at Raffles Hotel and enjoy a spot of people-watching, then sip cocktails at one of the elegant rooftop bars.

Get up early and spend the morning exploring the city's cultural history at the Singapore National Museum. You can either join a guided tour, or grab a map and examine the historical artefacts yourself. By midday, you should have worked up enough of an appetite to enjoy a traditional Asian lunch at Singapore Food Trail. Continue your culture tour at the Asian Civilisations Museum, before ending your day at the Singapore Art Museum.

After a late breakfast, head to Gardens by the Bay to admire the iconic Supertrees. Walk along the OCBC Skyway to take in the jaw-dropping views, and stay until sunset to enjoy the choreographed light show. And if you've still got the energy for more after dinner, take a walk on the wild side at the thrilling Night Safari. Open from 7.15pm, the world's first wildlife night park offers starry tram rides past snoozing flamingos and Malayan tapir.

Featuring on the UNESCO list of world heritage sites, the Singapore Botanic Gardens is a scenic place to spend a relaxed afternoon. Follow the heady scents to the Aroma Garden, before settling down for an a la carte meal at the Halia restaurant. For a laidback evening, head to Chinatown to the modern pub-style Oxwell & Co for dinner and drinks.

The thrilling theme park rides, world-class entertainment and award-winning luxury spa make Resorts World Sentosa a playground for all ages. Arrive in style via the Singapore Cable Car, and don't leave until you've indulged in a little downtime at the spa. Then there’s the food. With an incredible four Michelin-starred restaurants (a total of 8 stars), you’ll be spoiled for choice.

After a late breakfast at the trendy 40 Hands coffee shop, Haji Lane in Kampong Glam is your go-to for a lazy day. Spend some time here musing the street art and quirky boutiques, before settling down to a Malayan dinner. Hang around until evening to watch Kampong Glam come alive with street markets, and don't leave without checking out the highlight of the area, the iconic Sultan Mosque.

Go deeper into Singapore’s military history – literally – with a guided tour around The Battlebox, inside Fort Canning Hill. Explore the Civic District Art Trail, lined with historical and artistic figures. The ‘grand dame’ arts venues, like the lavishly refurbished Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall on Empress Place, are worth a look. Stay for the free lunch concerts. After dark, the beautifully lit building, guarded by the Sir Stamford Raffles statue, makes a perfect picture backdrop.

Ride the MRT to Lavender station where you'll find the Jalan Besar Heritage Trail. You can explore this former swampland yourselves, or hop on a guided tour for a better insight. In the afternoon, Petain Road is your go-to for photo opportunities. The intricate shophouses on this street are definitely worthy of a Facebook post. Before you end your day, make a stop at Chye Seng Huat, where the contemporary wood decor is just as inviting as the freshly-roasted coffee.

For your culture fix, head to Singapore's bustling Chinatown - home to the opulent Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Chinatown Heritage Centre. Spend some time soaking up the atmosphere before heading to the Maxwell Hawker Centre for an authentic chicken rice lunch at Ah Tai. Take it easy for the rest of the afternoon with a bumboat tour of the Singapore River. Don't forget to bring your cameras for those all-important river selfies.

Wake yourself up with a plate of toast and an iced coffee from the Ya Kun Kaya Toast coffee shop. Afterwards, hop in a taxi to MacRitchie Reservoir. The treetop walk offers incredible birds-eye views of the lush forest canopy. Look out for the resident monkeys on your walk, and be sure to bring some mosquito repellent and a bottle of water along with you. In the evening, pull on your gladrags for a little music and mingling at the swanky 1-Altitude Gallery & Bar – the highest point in Singapore – or go underground at basement jazz bar, B28 in Chinatown.

On the last day of your holiday in Singapore, hop on a morning bumboat from Changi ferry terminal stand to the nearby island of Pulau Ubin. Take in the natural beauty of the island, before continuing on to the Chek Jawa Wetlands. Home to a wide variety of wildlife, this lush natural area is a great place to enjoy a leisurely bike ride or stroll, and reflect on your time in the city.
