5 Best Reasons to Visit Singapore- Top 5 Reasons to Holiday in the Lion City

As Asia's most straight-laced nation, Singapore welcomes visitors from around the world. Here are five reasons why a holiday in the Lion City is a rite of passage for all travellers.


The Food

Often described as a dream come true for true blue foodies, the sheer variety of cuisines one can sample in Singapore alone is a compelling reason to holiday in the country. Not only are the gastronomic offerings in the Lion City first class in terms of taste and quality but the portions and the price points are also affordable thanks to hawker centres and the island's thriving street food scene. Those who wish to experience fine dining in Singapore will also have their pick of globally renowned restaurants including Italian hotspot Basilico and Japanese food hub Ikoi while those who like a little bit of everything will find Asian, French and Japanese cuisine on the menu at Carousel.


The Cultural Hotspots

In spite of its minute size, Singapore is home to some of Asia's most celebrated cultural institutions. The Gillman Barracks is one such venue where a former army base was converted to a gallery of national importance. The ArtScience Museum is another groundbreaking institution in this regard while the National Gallery of Singapore is home to the largest collection of art by Southeast Asian painters and artists. Hosting regular festivals and workshops the National Gallery remains an edutainment attraction for the masses while other cultural hotspots including the Merlion make a trip to Singapore well worth the trouble.


The Nightlife

While it's after dark distractions may not warrant as much regard as that of Bangkok, Singapore's night time distractions are no less impressive than the Thai capital. Concentrated around the heart of the city, Singapore's best clubs include the Zouk where artists such as The Chemical Brothers and David Guetta have graced the stage. Rooftop bars are another Singaporean nightlife highlight while those looking to wine and dine in a spectacular setting should look no further than the pubs, bars and restaurants scattered around Clarke Quay.


The Activities

Whether one is an adventurous traveller or a thrill-seeker, there's plenty of opportunities to let loose and enjoy a host of sporting activities in Singapore. From swimming, basketball and cricket to badminton and cycling, the city's well-equipped sports facilities not only cater to popular sporting activities as those mentioned above but also water sports the likes of scuba diving, water skiing, kayaking and sailing. Sentosa Island and Universal Studios Singapore are also on hand for those who prefer to spend time at the beach or experience awe-inspiring rollercoasters and thematic rides. Those based at Destination Singapore Beach Road or any similar venues ranked among the best value hotels in Singapore will find that both these leisure hubs are within close range of most hotels.


The Wild Side

When it comes to eco-friendly attractions on the island, none beat the Singapore Zoo with its Night Safari experience and extensive wildlife enclosures. Those who prefer flora to fauna will find the Botanic Gardens and the Gardens by the Bay enough reason to visit Singapore on holiday.
