'If you’re interested in delving into the complex tapestry that is life in south-east Asia, then keep watching episode 89 of Planet Cruise Weekly as we explore cruising to Singapore.’
Every week we look at a range of cruise topics, and this episode will be focused on what some describe as the microcosm of Asia, a simply phenomenal cruising adventure –Singapore. If you're interested in delving into the complex tapestry that is life in south-east Asia, then a cruise around the region is the perfect way to start, as this will enable you to sample multiple destinations in one trip. Having said this, some say that choosing an itinerary that includes a stop in Singapore, you'll be able to experience the entire continent in a single city.
Singapore’s colourful history means a fusion of cultures have influenced the country, and made it the unique destination that it is today. Its ever-changing nature has caused it to appear something of a mystery to many people, and we think the best way to begin to uncover and understand it is to explore both the popular and the lesser known spots.
The Singapore Zoo is home to almost 3000 creatures, with everything from elephants, white tigers, and monkeys, to naked mole rats. Arguably one of the most ethical zoos in the world, the animals each have ample space, and the ability to roam free in some cases. For a more unusual experience, Singapore also boasts a Night Safari. This is a separate attraction to the zoo, and allows guests to see animals during the night while riding trams through the centre.
Next up, you can combine your holiday with the Formula 1 racing schedule, and be a part of the brilliant experience that is the Singapore Grand Prix. With most activity taking place during the night, the atmosphere in the streets of Marina Bay is undoubtedly infectious and exciting.
Singapore Botanic Gardens has been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status, and is home to hundreds of different species. Visitors will find a spectacular rainforest quarter, the National Orchid Garden, pretty sparkling lakes, and more. Or, Gardens by the Bay offers an altogether more futuristic space, boasting extraordinary features such as an aerial walkway, modern sculptures, and technological tree-shaped gardens among others. Singapore is such an amazing city full of culture and energy, and I guarantee you’ll leave Singapore richer in life and you’ll be planning your next visit before you have even left!
If relaxation is more your thing, then why not visit, the man-made beach at Sentosa. It is easily a match for any of Asia's best natural beaches, and also holds the distinction of being the southernmost point of the mainland continent.
Raffles Court is a truly majestic hotel that dates back to 1887. It has hosted a plethora of historical figures including Charlie Chaplin and Rudyard Kipling, and is said to be the origin of gin-based cocktail, the Singapore Sling. The drink is thought to have been created in 1915, by a bar tender named Ngiam Tong Boon in the hotel’s Long Bar.
