Singapore's amazing tale tells of a once sleepy fishing village that defied the odds to transform itself into a first-world metropolis. While many think of Singapore as a small city-state in Southeast Asia, the destination is full of surprises and unknown experiences waiting to be uncovered! From street food to fine dining, from natural reserves to futuristic Supertrees, from tourist hotspots to hidden gems, Singapore invites you for novel and unique experiences.


Despite its soaring skyscrapers and bustling cityscape, Singapore is more than just a concrete jungle. Known as a city in a garden, the city’s natural landscape intertwines seamlessly with its modern spaces and futuristic architecture. Beautiful parks, secluded island sanctuaries and thriving mangroves are just some of natural splendor you’ll find in Singapore. Make your way to Pulau Ubin to admire Singapore’s wildlife, consider hopping on board a yacht to discover the Southern islands, or enjoy a break at the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, a vast mangrove forest filled with fascinating fauna! Located in the heart of Singapore, the iconic Gardens by the Bay is a sanctuary for nature lovers: it is home to 2000 exotic species.
