Long dismissed as little more than a sterile stopover, Singapore has reinvented itself as one of the world’s hot-list destinations. The world’s aspiring ‘City in a Garden’ is an unexpected wonderland for fans of all things green and natural.

The sharp and constant contrasts: smoky temples in the shadow of skyscrapers, luxe condos backing onto jungle, old-school shophouses housing secret cocktail dens. You can travel the world without ever leaving the island.

From chilli-spiked crab, to fragrant laksa, rendang and biryani, Singapore is a mouthwatering feast of flavours. Singaporeans are obsessed with food – good food – and you’ll find it steaming, sizzling and simmering almost everywhere you look.
