This modern metropolis is so much more than just one of the biggest economic centres in the world. Outside your luxury hotel in Singapore, you will find a vast array of world-class food, nightlife, shopping, and many other exciting things to do. Here are seven of our recommendations for how to spend your Singapore trip.
1. Explore the city by helicopter.
Singapore has an interesting contrast of architecture, consisting of old oriental temples and modern-day highrises. The best way to see this unique setting is by taking to the skies. Many premium helicopter companies in Singapore offer private tours. With this exclusive sightseeing tour, you’ll enjoy total privacy having the helicopter to yourself as you marvel at the panoramic views below you.
2. Charter a private yacht.
The second best way to see this city is by water. You can rent a private yacht to take you around the island, allowing you to see Singapore’s landmarks from a different perspective. Plus, as there are many small islands close by, you can extend your trip by visiting a few of these. Singapore is not short on luxury yachts, so you’ll have no problem finding private transportation; however, ask for recommendations at your luxury hotel reception.
3. Relax at the beach clubs in Sentosa.
Sentosa is an island resort just off Singapore’s southern coast and is a must-visit during any Singapore vacation. Along Sentosa’s golden sandy beaches are an array of exclusive beach clubs where you can relax in style with a cocktail in hand while listening to the DJ spinning tunes. Tanjong and FOC are two awesome venues, but with a different ambience. Tanjong is a super hip, high-end place to hang out, whereas FOC is a bit more down to earth.
4. Visit the innovative Gardens By The Bay.
Gardens by the Bay is an enormous green space by Singapore’s riverfront, spanning 250 acres of gardens and conservatories. The most famous attraction is undoubtedly the futuristic Supertree Grove. This garden consists of 18 supertrees ranging from 25 to 50 meters tall, with Avatar-like structures. I recommend doing the OCBC Skyway and Canopy Walk here, where you can walk across a 128-meter high canopy to see the futuristic Supertrees up close.
5. Spend an evening at Marina Bay Sands Casino.
The casino inside Marina Bay Sands boasts over 15,000 square meters of gaming space, including around 500 gaming tables and 1,600 slot machines. Therefore, the Sands Casino is naturally a favourite attraction amongst travellers in Singapore. If you’re looking to live a life of luxury, this is the place to be. Aside from being housed inside one of the city’s most iconic structures, the casino has one of the world’s largest Swarovski chandeliers as its centrepiece, too.
6. Dine at one of the many Michelin Starred restaurants.
Being such a culturally diverse destination, food in Singapore is always exciting. While you’ll find plenty of tasty street-eats here, if you want to dine in style, check out one of the many Michelin Starred restaurants, such as the 3 Michelin star Les Amis. This upscale French eatery has a relaxed atmosphere with chandeliers and fancy decor. Both the food and the service is top-notch, and there is an extensive fine-wine menu, too.
7. Cruise around Singapore’s streets in a luxury sports car.
Singapore has a super-efficient subway system. However, if you want to get around in style, why not rent a sports car during your vacation instead? There are plenty of luxury car rental companies throughout Singapore, stocking all the best exotic cars. So, whether you fancy cruising around in a Ferrari, Lamborghini or Porsche, your dream can become a reality here.
