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
