InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay
A true melting pot, Singapore is a one-stop destination for a multicultural experience. Passions come alive in this island city-state, from renowned formal dining to street eats, street vendors to upscale shopping centres, street art and sculpture to world-class museums and everything in between.
Orchard Road has become Asia's most famous shopping district. Its collection of international luxury brands brings in shoppers from all over Asia and the rest of the world. But Singapore's shopping opportunities only begin there. Head to the lesser known areas of Katong or Haji Lane for laneways filled with boutiques. Then take to the streets to get the experience of shopping Singapore's best bazaars, including *SCAPE Marketplace and the Bugis Street Market.
Singapore’s diverse culture is evident in their temples, mosques, and churches, which are often situated in close proximity to each other. And for many of these religions and subcultures that thrive here, annual festivals and events offer the chance to dive deeper into the culture. From the Hindu festival of Thaipusam, Vesak Day (Buddhist), and Chinese New Year, there are reasons to come together to celebrate all year long.
Over the past 20 years, Singapore’s art scene has grown and evolved, creating a thriving contemporary art scene. Art Plural Gallery, Future Perfect, The Drawing Room and Sundaram Tagore Gallery are only some of the must-visit galleries. But a walk along any of the clean streets of Singapore is bound to bring you to street art and artfully placed urban sculpture. Of course, any visitor couldn't miss the striking architecture of the Marina Bay Sands, The Sail, and the Gardens of the Bay that make Singapore's skyline so exciting.
The flavours of Singapore come alive with influences from Indian, Malaysian, and Chinese. Singapore's national dish is Chicken Rice, but a visit to Singapore wouldn't be complete with Hokkien Prawn Mee, Nasi Lemak, and Laksa. From Michelin-star restaurants to hawker centres to pop-up food events like the Singapore Food Festival, Singapore Restaurant Week, and Singapore Cocktail Festival, a delicious meal is just a mouthful away.
