A bustling country packed into a postage stamp-sized city-state, Singapore is one of Asia’s most popular destinations. The towering skyscrapers look almost futuristic, but within the city you can uncover various cultural areas that seemingly haven't changed since past dynasties. There’s so much to see and do that taking a tour of The Lion City is one of the best ways to experience it all.

Singapore’s shimmering skyline looms over Marina Bay like a glistening temple to commerce. One of the best ways to get around and explore it is on a hop-on hop-off bus tour, which offers 24 hours of access to many of Singapore’s most recognisable landmarks. It’s also a convenient way to get around a city replete with several distinct districts, each boasting their own look and style.
The Orchard Road shopping precinct is one of Singapore’s busiest attractions, with plenty of visitors flocking to this two-kilometre long stretch of retail abundance. The pretty riverside expanse of Clarke Quay is also worth exploring courtesy of its picturesque colonial architecture, while no visit to Singapore is complete without a trip to the perennially popular island of Sentosa.
It may be renowned as one of Asia’s most influential economic hubs, but there’s plenty more to Singapore than just soaring skyscrapers. Escape the bustle of the city with a trip to Underwater World to admire the pink dolphins which frolic gleefully in the Dolphin Lagoon.
Alternatively, you can observe the more than 5,000 birds who call the Jurong Bird Park home, or enjoy a day at the famed Singapore Zoo – which houses some 2,800 animals across 28 hectares of impeccably maintained enclosures. There’s even a Night Safari on which you can get up close and personal with some of the zoo’s popular nocturnal creatures.
