Full of surprises
Explore the secrets of Singapore in 48 hours
Featuring as a stopover or port city on many itineraries, you could easily be forgiven for passing your time in Singapore in the comfort of your luxurious five star hotel or in a chic shopping centre.
But you would miss out on so much. Get out and explore the secrets of Singapore.
Day one morning
A trip to Singapore would not be complete without tasting Singapore Chilli Crab.
Our pick for the best is at Jumbo Seafood Riverside at Clarke Quay. You can choose the level of spiciness and it is best accompanied with fried rice.
Day one afternoon
After a morning spent weaving your way through the sophisticated city, a trip to the Gardens by the Bay. From the space age looking super trees with a spectacular aerial walk, to the flower dome and cloud forest, you would be mistaken missing out on one of the world’s most futuristic looking gardens.
Day one evening
Finish your first day with a well-deserved treat, dinner at Michelin starred Restaurant Andre. The intimate 30-seater restaurant offers a philosophical menu based on an Octaphilosophy, a theme of eight dishes and each course is paired with biodynamic French artisanal wines.
Day two morning
It is time to hit the shops but not the typical malls. Little India is where cultures combine to create a vibrant district that offers everything from temples to tailoring. Catch the easy Singapore subway to the Little India stop and find everything from a large selection of gold jewellery and unique textiles at Tekka Market.
Day t wo afternoon
For spectacular city views and a taste of lush greenery the Southern Ridges Walk is a must. The five kilometre walking trail weaves through three parks; Kent Ridge Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park and Mount Faber Park. Henderson Waves, the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore, connects two of the parks and offers some of the best vantage points of the city.
Day two evening
No trip would be complete without trying a Singapore Sling, the unofficial national beverage of Singapore.
Created in the Long Bar of the iconic Raffles Hotel, but there are several bars to test out modern twists on this classic cocktail.
