Singapore Highlights

Situated on the tip of the Malay Peninsula, Singapore is a fascinating island nation with a unique cultural coctail. Originally discovered by the Chinese but used by the British Empire as a strategic 'halfway house' in the region, Singapore has attracted migrants from all over Asia and the Middle East. Singapore’s unique combination of ethnic groups is reflected in the different languages spoken, architecture visible and food eaten.

Indulge in the delights of Singapore, whether that's shopping till you drop on Orchard Road, eating treats in the hawker stalls, or sipping a Singapore Sling in the Raffles hotel.
