Top 10 Reasons to Visit Singapore - Ten Reasons Why Singapore Should Be Your Next Holiday Hub

As one of Asia's most visited holiday destinations, Singapore's popularity seems to only grow as the years pass by. Here are some of the reasons why the country is a big hit with travellers.

1

The Retail Possibilities

When it comes to shopping hotspots in Asia, Singapore comes out on top not only due to retail hubs the likes of Orchard Road where towering department stores line the street but also the many bargain havens found within the Lion City. This includes Little India and Chinatown while the Sunday Artists Market and other local thoroughfares also offer budget shoppers a host of goodies.

2

The Food

With a multi-cultural populace, it should come as no surprise that Singapore is a food lover's dream come true. From Malay and Chinese food to Indian and Indonesian dishes, the fusion of all these culinary styles is sold in street food karts and hawker centres across the island nation. What's more, fine dining establishments in the country also include Bread Street Kitchen by Gordon Ramsay no less.

The Lush Green Hubs

For an island so small, Singapore encompasses a large number of eco hubs where nature reigns supreme. As the Garden City of Asia, the island nation is not only home to the historic Botanic Garden but also the Gardens

4

The Parties

Singapore is also a prime party hotspot during the New Year celebrations and Christmas festivities each year. With nearly all of its hotels and restaurants offering special buffet meals and dinner dances, ringing in the New Year in Singapore is an irresistible option.

5

The Funky Bars

Rooftop bars are one of the best aspects of Singapore's drinking scene and those with a passion for bar hopping on enjoying a pint while on holiday will find a plethora of exciting drinking holes in the Lion City. From Cé La Vie to those little known bars down Chinatown, Singapore is one of the few countries where indulging during the daytime is encouraged with most coffee shops such as The Dispensary offering a daytime menu.

6

The Diverse Neighbourhoods

While it is cosmopolitan to the core, Singapore's suburbs are just as interesting as the skyscraper laden CBD. One of the lesser-known colourful precincts in Singapore includes Tiong Bahru where the 1930s are very much alive except for the chic boutiques and cafes that have propped up to cater to tourists. Katong is another hipster haven while Everton Park is equally engaging as an emerging Singapore "hood" to explore.

The Swanky New Gallery

The ArtScience Museum is a lotus-shaped wonder of an institution in an already culturally rich nation.

8

The Theme Parks

From Sentosa Island to Universal Studios, the theme parks in Singapore are globally renowned for the plethora of activities and adventures on offer. Visitors based at Park Hotel Farrer Park or any similar hotels in Serangoon Road Singapore will have easy access to both parks.

9

The Festivals

Local festivities in Singapore are marked with great pomp and pageantry and that is not only reserved for the National Day Celebrations or the Chinese New Year.

10

Changi Airport

Singapore's airport is world-renowned for the number of attractions and highlights contained within which include the Changi Experience Studio, The Rain Vortex and a Peranakan Gallery.
