    Luxury, tailor-made holidays to Singapore

    Founded in 1819 as an outpost of the British East India Company, Singapore today is a fascinating mix of cultures and temperaments, with immigrants from China and Malaysia, India and the West creating a rich, heady cocktail reflected in its architecture, with skyscrapers and subways sitting side by side with rickety riverside food stalls and colonial hotels. Home to the legendary Raffles Hotel, Singapore is equally famous today for its bustling Chinatown and Little India, with its mouthwatering cuisine drawing on influences from all round the Pacific. Of course, it’s not all about shopping and eating, Singapore Slings and financial markets. Even here, after Monaco the second densest country on the planet, outdoor activities abound, with Singapore’s centre still sheltering sparkling reservoirs and leafy forests, with fantastic cycling and walking where all you can hear is monkeys in the branches above. Elsewhere, sailing and windsurfing is also a wonderful way to escape the urban bustle. With exquisite cuisine and a fascinating cultural mix, top-notch hotels and stylish restaurants and cafes, and superb walking tours and a thriving modern art scene, the Lion City is a superb, hi energy escape.

    Average temperatures
    Practically on the equator, Singapore’s temperature never drops below 20°C, usually climbing to 30°C during the day. Rainfall and humidity are steady year-round. Rain arrives in torrential downpours, but is soon replaced by sunshine. It may rain every day during the wet season, but it rarely rains all day. The wettest months are November to January, the driest May to July.

    Local highlights

    Singapore Sling at the Raffles Hotel; Little India, wall to wall in temples and food stalls, spices and saree shops; Hawker-centre, with simple but exquisite food stalls; the night safari at Singapore Zoo; mountain biking and walking around Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, MacRitchie Reservoir and Pulau Ubin; tea, Chinese opera and fantastic cuisine in Chinatown; tropical Botanic Gardens; massage on Orchard Road; the Esplanade’s Theatres on the Bay; river cruises; riverside cafes.

    Getting out and about

    Singapore has fantastic public transport, with a tangled web of bus and train (MRT) routes taking you to the doorsteps of most sights. There are regular ferry services from Sentosa to other southern islands, and from Changi Village to Pulau Ubin. You can also take river cruises, or boat cruises around the harbour. Singapore’s bus service should be the envy of the world. You rarely have to wait more than a few minutes for a bus, and they’ll take you almost anywhere.

    Travel arrangements

    British Airways and Qantas fly to Changi International from Heathrow; Singapore Airlines flies there from Heathrow and Manchester. Flight time is 12 hours and 45 minutes.
