In the heart of Southeast Asia, vibrant Singapore is a popular stopover city for long-haul getaways. This city-state is a 13-hour flight from the UK, making it a convenient jumping-off point for Asia and Australasia. But, before you journey on to your final destination, why not tick another place off your list and spend a few days in the Lion City? There’s so much to do here that you can easily fill 72 hours in Singapore.
Contemporary and traditional in equal measure, this metropolis is a melting pot of different cultures. You’ll notice influences from China, India and Malaysia across Singapore’s varied architecture, but the city’s diversity is even more apparent in its delicious cuisine. Food is a big thing here, and you’ll probably spend a large part of your trip eating. You fill up at the bustling hawker centres, where casual stalls serve budget-friendly street food. In particular, chilli crab – the city’s signature dish – is a must-try during your few days in Singapore. And, if you fancy a special treat, there are dozens of Michelin-star restaurants to choose from.
While you could easily enjoy a food-focussed weekend here, there’s plenty more to experience. On your Singapore stopover, you can explore the iconic Gardens by the Bay, visit the acclaimed Singapore Zoo, and browse stylish shops along Orchard Road. Head to Sentosa Island for theme park thrills, or wander around the beautiful Botanic Gardens. And no trip to the Lion City would be complete without calling in to Raffles Hotel to try its famous cocktail creation – the Singapore Sling.
Whatever you’re into, our experts will help you plan the perfect itinerary, so you can really make the most of your 72 hours in Singapore. If you can, try to visit during the dry season between February and August, when temperatures hover in the high-twenties and rainfall is at its lowest. That way, you can discover all this exciting place has to offer, before continuing your holiday elsewhere.
