Singapore

Founded originally as a British trading post in 1819, Singapore is undoubtedly one of the most popular destinations to visit and live in Southeast Asia. The city seamlessly integrates a variety of cultures, landmarks, restaurants and general landscapes that couldn’t be more polar opposite.

Concrete skylines are starting to evolve into futuristic green spaces as the city works towards its ‘City in a Garden’ dream, with the Gardens by the Bay, Singapore Botanic Gardens and Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and the island of Pulau Ubin the current highlights. World famous sites – most notably Marina Bay Sands, Clarke Quay, Raffles Hotel and Merlion Park – make for a change of pace, especially when you need a break from the stifling heat the city is so renowned for.

The ever-modernising city is simply bustling with activity, from the shopping frenzies on Orchard Road to sampling local cuisine at a local hawker, there is truly something for everyone.
