Sin­ga­pore

Singapore Business Travel Guide - - Front Page -

on­sid­ered the gate­way to South­east Asia thanks to its world-lead­ing port in­fra­struc­ture, it should come as no sur­prise that Sin­ga­pore – with its in­tri­cate blend of dis­tinctly ori­en­tal in­flu­ences and mod­ern af­flu­ent liv­ing – is revered as a lu­cra­tive hub for global in­dus­try.

The ar­chi­tec­turally unique high-rise neigh­bour­hoods of­ten in­spired by its Per­anakan her­itage form the back­drop to a mi­cro­cosm of Asian eth­nic groups who en­joy the city state’s year­round fes­ti­vals, culi­nary de­lights and con­ve­nience-led re­tail cul­ture which all help to cre­ate the ev­ery­day city buzz.

Hid­den among Sin­ga­pore’s densely pop­u­lated land­scape are more than 50 ma­jor na­ture parks as well as four re­serves, mak­ing for sev­eral pic­tureper­fect views at van­tage points across the city. The Gar­den State pushes the bound­aries of in­fra­struc­ture to ul­ti­mately cre­ate an of­fer­ing of iconic green spa­ces; from the stun­ning Gar­dens by the Bay, to the must-visit Sin­ga­pore Botan­i­cal Gar­dens, a pop­u­lar tourist at­trac­tion re­cently recog­nised as a UNESCO World Her­itage Site.

Delv­ing deeper into the city, it is no se­cret that Sin­ga­pore­ans love their food, and there’s cer­tainly plenty to love. The city of­fers a mul­ti­tude of leg­endary tastes and din­ing ex­pe­ri­ences; from street food hawker cen­tres and stalls to celebrity Miche­lin restau­rants and late night cock­tail bars.

Main­tain­ing the work-life bal­ance with­out los­ing site of its her­itage, Sin­ga­pore is con­sid­ered one of the most pop­u­lar travel des­ti­na­tions in the world. Peel back the layer of squeaky clean sovereignty and you’ll soon find there’s more than meets the eye
