escape BROOME TO SINGAPORE
People living in Broome and the Kimberley will finally have access to overseas flights when trial flights are introduced between Broome and Singapore, starting May 22. The four return services will give local residents the opportunity to fly direct to the Lion City, without having to travel to and from Perth and lose transit time. With community support it is hoped to make these services a permanent fixture, which will create new and exciting opportunities for Broome tourism. FIVE MUST-SEE ATTRACTIONS IN SINGAPORE Gardens by the Bay
Step into the world of gardens and experience a horticultural showcase that will never be forgotten. This tourist hotspot spans over 100 hectares, but it may be its domes that steals the spotlight. With more than 1000 international plants in the incredible Flower Dome alone and the Cloud Forest dome’s huge indoor waterfall, it truly brings to life the notion of Singapore as a “city in a garden.”
The Singapore Flyer
There is no better way to bask in the breathtaking views of Singapore’s lavish cityscape than at the peak of this unbelievable 165m high observation wheel. Hop into one of the 28 air-conditioned capsules and be mesmerised by the Lion City. Those who are chasing a little more luxury can opt for the ultimate sky dining experience, which comes with a four-course meal and in-flight host.
Perhaps the world’s most popular island resort, there is something for everyone at Sentosa Island. Regarded by many as a thrill-seekers’ paradise, you can jump on a Singapore Cable Car and get a 360 degree look of the entire island, experience a trip down the Skyline Luge or ride one of the 24 roller coasters and other attractions at the remarkable Universal Studios. For those who prefer it a tad more relaxed, the island has a number of man-made beaches that are not to be missed, as well as the fascinating S.E.A Aquarium and a tonne of museums and resorts.
A complete contrast to the rest of the city, Chinatown offers tourists an unforgettable cultural experience, complete with historical sites, street food and old shops. From the stunning four-storey Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Red Dot Design Museum to the busy street markets and City Gallery, it is certainly an outing that you wouldn’t want to forget your camera for.
This award-winning rainforest zoo will make for an eventful wildlife experience for the entire family. Home to 2800 animals that feel like they’re just a small reach away, the zoo is consistently brought up in conversations about the best in the world.
