The island metropolis of Singapore is a paradox, its glistening skyscrapers coexisting with beautifully preserved nature and its bustling city streets, a melting pot of cultures, giving way to the seclusion of luxury hotels and high-end shopping. It is a microcosm of Asia and a fascinating destination.
We are currently offering some great deals at some of Singapore’s most decadent resorts, giving you the chance to enjoy this fascinating island city-state in all its diverse glory.
Revel in 5-star luxury at the Singapore Shangri-La, an oasis away from the hive of city-centre activity. We are currently offering one free night on a four-day stay at this stunning resort, where you can enjoy spa treatments, fine dining and beautifully landscaped gardens in the 15-acres of lush greenery surrounding the resort.
Singapore’s only beachfront resort, the 5-star Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa, is also available with one free night, offering four nights for the price of three for those booking through Dialaflight. The hotel is nestled amongst tropical green surroundings and a beach of pure white sand, overlooking the popular Sentosa Island.
During your stay you’ll be sure to experience the full spectrum of Asian cultures, and particularly a thriving food scene, which takes in influences from all over the region. Food is perhaps the cornerstone of Singaporean life, and plays a central role in social situations. Chinese food is the biggest influence, but you’ll also find Indian, Malay, Thai and Japanese all living side-by-side, along with Western foods. Food in Singapore is to be enjoyed and can be a messy affair, so dispense with the niceties and get stuck in!
Singapore is home to a fine zoo and several wildlife and nature reserves, which provide a great alternative to the busy city streets. The zoo is known as the “world’s best rainforest zoo” where the animals roam freely in the natural landscape. There is also a terrific Night Safari and the colourful Jurong Bird Park with its magnificent Waterfall Aviary recreating a pristine rainforest environment.
Many cultures combine in Singapore to make its city streets a fascinating and varied environment to explore. In particular, the cityscape is dotted with temples and monuments to Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism and many other faiths. Discovering these historic places of worship is a colourful and revealing experience, and is a great way to learn more about Singapore and its history.
Perhaps the second most popular pastime in Singapore, after eating, is shopping, and the city-state can boast some of the best shopping anywhere in the world. Singapore offers a high concentration of shopping malls, alongside traditional street shopping in Chinatown, Little India, Orchard Road and the historic Kampong Glam district.
As you can see, Singapore is an exciting and diverse destination waiting to be discovered. If these deals aren't what you're after, you can currently also enjoy Singapore as part of two Oriental Express tours available through Dialaflight.
