SINGAPORE BY SHANGRI-LA
A tropical metropolis where skyscrapers and verdant greenery intertwine, Singapore is the portrait of contemporary Asia. Discover a melting pot of history and culture and a veritable cornucopia of gastronomic delights with Shangri-La as your guide.
Let Nature Be Your Guide
Just a few short minutes from Shangri-La Singapore you'll discover a green jewel in the UNESCO heritage-listed Singapore Botanic Gardens. While there, be sure to visit the National Orchid Garden where 600 species and hybrids are on display.
Another must-visit is the Gardens by the Bay, home to rare flowers, unique sculptures and iconic Supertrees (or vertical gardens). Get a birds-eye view from the 22-metre-high aerial walkway then marvel at the indoor waterfall at the world's largest glass greenhouse.
Unleash Your Inner-Foodie
Singaporeans have a reputation for being obsessed with food, which is probably why everything from cheap street food to Michelin-starred restaurants dot the city.
To properly immerse yourself in Singapore's delicious food culture, a trip to one of its's vibrant hawker centers is a must. The best place to start is the Chinatown Complex Food Centre and its 260+ food stalls that serve up local favourites like Hainanese chicken rice and Indian roti prata. Wash it down with either a kopi (local coffee), teh (tea) ice-cold beer or freshly-pressed juice.
Immerse Yourself in Arts and Culture
Singapore's flourishing art scene is something to behold. Contemporary art lovers will find solace at Gillman Barracks, home to 12 unique galleries set in a conserved colonial barracks.
Street art connoisseurs will love exploring the bustling enclaves of Little India, Chinatown, and Tiong Bahru, where magnificent wall murals pay homage to the traditions and pioneers who helped to shape these districts lurk around every corner.
Get a Dose of Retail Therapy
From bespoke high-street designs to unique local labels, Orchard Road is a shopper's paradise. Start your retail journey at Tanglin Mall, filled to the brim with specialty emporiums and independent boutiques, before wandering down to ION Orchard - one of Singapore's most glamorous shopping malls with luxury brands and popular street fashion all under one roof. For local apparel, accessories, and souvenirs proudly made in Singapore, visit Design Orchard – an integrated retail and incubation space showcasing over 60 upcoming local brands.
Sling Yourself to Sentosa Island
After you've explored the mainland, venture to Sentosa where you'll find world class attractions like Universal Studios Singapore, Mega Adventure Park and iFly, thrilling aquatic adventures like Singapore’s first floating obstacle course at HydroDash, and relaxing cable car rides.
It also happens to be home to Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa, Singapore's only beachfront resort and Nestopia, an open-air children's playground featuring 17 play sections with netted obstacle courses connecting 3 giant nests and 2 of the longest slides on the island.
