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.

Sen­tosa Is­land

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.

Sin­ga­pore Zoo

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. If you’re feel­ing a lit­tle peck­ish, don’t pass up the chance to dine with the friendly orang-utans, who run over to say hello while you en­joy your jun­gle break­fast.

There are still seats left on the his­toric di­rect Broome to Sin­ga­pore flights. Treat your­self for a lit­tle get­away to ex­pe­ri­ence the mag­i­cal Lion City, only four hours away with SilkAir Sup­port­ing these flights is sup­port­ing Broome’s fu­ture.
