Where in the world can Trafalgar take you?


It’s time to scratch-up on your Singlish and head to Singapore for an experience unlike any other.

Singapore is very much a destination of contrasts and this is evident as you explore Chinatown and Little India, both of which are gastronomic and shopping hubs in their own right that both display the incredible ethnic diversity of Singapore.

That’s all sandwiched into a truly 21st century city where anything seems possible. At the futuristic Gardens of the Bay Park, you’ll come across the famous Supertree structures, which offer an impressive skywalk over the gardens and oversized seashell-shaped greenhouses that recreate chilly mountain climates. 

If you’re not scared of heights, consider taking a ride on the famous Singapore Flyer, known to be the world’s largest observation wheel. Built over a three-story terminal building, the Flyer is 150 metres in diameter, 165 metres high, and travels at 0.21m per second. Some advice: if possible try it out twice! Because, with breath-taking panoramic views that are so radically different during the day and at night, you may just miss out if you only try it once. 

It’s not all city buzz, though. For some rest and relaxation, head to Sentosa, a purpose-built island off the southern tip of Singapore. Sentosa offers a collection of beaches, theme parks, golf, shopping, dining and more. Perhaps even more exciting is that you do not have to travel by road as the island can be reached by cable car. 

For a safari of a different kind, Singapore’s famous Night Safari comes highly recommended. It is not only an interesting place worth a visit but a leading conservation and research centre in Asia. As a zoo it offers an unusual glimpse into the nocturnal animal kingdom, with more than 59 exhibits and 1 000 animals to be seen from around the world. These include Himalayan griffon vultures, greater one-horned rhinoceroses, wildebeests and gazelles. 

At Universal Studios Singapore you will get a glimpse of Hollywood in Asia. The park has more than 20 attractions in themed zones, including the Lost World, Ancient Egypt, New York, Hollywood, Madagascar and Far Far Away (remember Shrek and Fiona?), as well as several rides to keep the thrill going. 

Not to be missed is Marina Bay with the focal point being the Marina Bay Sands complex, famed for its shopping, gambling opportunities, dining and nightlife and, of course, the spectacular light show, which illuminates the water as well as several iconic landmarks.

In the mood for a real Singapore slammer? Make your way to Clarke Quay. This riverside development is packed full of bustling bars and restaurants, boutique shops and nightclubs.
