Singapore – a sun-kissed South Asian city-state like nowhere else

With eye-popping futuristic skyscrapers, seductive luxury shopping malls, state-of-the-art cultural venues and an astonishingly efficient public transport network, it's no wonder the compact island state of Singapore is one of Asia's most popular visitor destinations. It's a vibrant cultural melting pot, steeped in Chinese, Indian and Malay heritage, which ensures thrillingly eclectic architecture, and one of the world's most diverse dining landscapes. Factor in alluring upscale nightlife and an enviable tropical climate, and you've got an irresistible spot for an unforgettable city break. Singapore holiday rentals range from cosy studios to sprawling family-size apartments, so you're sure to find one that suits all your needs.

Things to do

Family fun in Singapore

Kids and kids-at-heart alike will be enchanted by Universal Studios Singapore. This state-of-the-art theme park brings the worlds of your favourite Hollywood movies to life, through nerve-shredding thrill rides, lavish live shows and breathtaking 3D audio-visual experiences. With attractions inspired by everything from Shrek to Battlestar Galactica, there's something for all the family. At the neighbouring SEA Aquarium, you can marvel at 1000s of extraordinary ocean dwellers, from adorable clownfish to sleek hammerhead sharks. For a breathtaking bird's eye view of the city, take a trip up to 1-Altitude Rooftop Gallery & Bar, which stands at a vertigo-inducing height of 282 metres.

Activities

Sensational shopping and classic cocktails in Singapore

Shopping is pretty much the national pastime in Singapore, with blissfully air-conditioned malls on seemingly every street corner. If you want to splash cash like a Hollywood star, head to The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, where you'll find a glittering array of dazzling designer boutiques, alongside exclusive celebrity restaurants where you can quaff champagne and slurp freshly-shucked oysters. Or for quirky street fashion, make a beeline for the Orchard Gateway shopping mall. Continue the self-indulgence by sampling Singapore's nightlife. Top of the agenda for many is a trip to the iconic Long Bar at the luxurious Raffles Hotel, to sample one of their world-renowned Singapore Slings.

Weather

Year-round sunshine in Singapore

Singapore holiday rentals are in high demand throughout the year, in part because its glorious tropical climate ensures consistent heat – daytime temperatures invariably hover around 30°C, with just a small dip after dark. If your travel dates are flexible, you may want to avoid visiting between November and February, as this is the height of monsoon season. The rest of the year, afternoon thunderstorms are a common occurrence, but downpours tend to be short and sharp, and as such are unlikely to interfere with your plans.

Natural features

Animal encounters in Singapore

With an abundance of pristine parks and green spaces, it's easy to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city. Singapore Botanic Gardens, the country's first UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a blissful 60-acre expanse of natural spectacle, with over 60,000 plants, including over 1,000 species of fragrant orchids. For a spot of animal magic, head to Singapore Zoo. Here you can get up close and personal with everything from majestic white tigers to fearsome Komodo dragons.
