A collision of culture and otherworldly skylines awaits in Singapore.

Holidays in Singapore

Sitting at the crossroads of Asia, Singapore is a melting pot of cultures, cuisines, and contrasts waiting to be explored. From towering skyscrapers and lush green spaces to vibrant street markets and historic neighbourhoods, this dynamic city-state offers a wealth of experiences for travellers of all tastes and interests.

When is the best time to visit? Singapore can be enjoyed year-round. But we think the best time to visit is from February to April when the weather is dry and there are numerous festivals to enjoy including Chinese New Year and Holi. Why not mix your sunshine escape with an enriching experience of vibrant celebrations?

Where is the best place to stay in Singapore? A city-state with fantastic public transport links, no matter where you stay, you’ll be able to effortlessly explore Singapore. However, for first-time visitors, we recommend staying in the Marina Bay sands area. Located in the centre of the city, Marina Bay overlaps with the Central Business District, the Civic Quarter, and trendy Clarke Quay, so you’re never far from the action.
