It’s a mecca for everyone who wants to experience a fusion of different cultures, cuisines and people, and it’s a great place where you could try some of the greatest and most luxurious experiences ever. Yes, Singapore is slowly becoming the “it” place of the East. Now, if you happen to be there, what are the luxurious things you can do? Also, what are the simple things that you could do to make you feel more luxurious? Take a look at this guide, remember all of these activities (write them down or simply bookmark this page – you will need it!) and choose the ones that you might want to try out.
Check out a good resort
Is there anything better than checking in one of the best resorts in a country? One of the best things that you can do in Singapore is to check the iconic Marina Bay Sands and enjoy everything they have to offer. This is a huge resort that’s set in three very modern and contemporary setting. It’s not only a hotel, but it’s also a great place where you can wine and dine, have cocktails or drinks (as it has some of the most amazing bars and restaurants), a full-service spa and a full gym. So you might never want to leave this resort.
Try the food in Singapore
Another great thing that you most certainly want to experience in Singapore is their food. The good thing is that you can try any cuisine you want in Singapore, as it caters for everyone’s needs. If you want good Italian food, you’ll be able to find amazing Italian restaurants. If you, on the other hand, want something American, there are great burger joints and craft beer breweries that you will simply adore. Singapore is the place where you can find many Michelin-star approved restaurants, so if that is not a proof of luxury, nothing is. You don’t have to break the bank in order to try Michelin-starred food, as there are two famous hawker stalls that have gained a single-star status, and are quite affordable. So if you want something cheap yet luxurious (what kind of sorcery is this?!), have Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork in Lavender and Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle in Chinatown on your radar.
Use the services of killer hotels
Ah, how can you indulge in the luxury if you don’t find a perfect hotel that you won’t even want to leave? Singapore is definitely a place with so many different and unique hotel options, so it’s your task to find the best one. We say task because finding the perfect hotel is close to impossible – all of them are amazing, especially the ones that are considered as luxurious. The amazing Carlton City Hotel in Singapore has some exclusive offers and it’s located in an amazing neighbourhood (Tanjong Pagar, Chinatown and Little India are within reach). It also features an amazing restaurant, spa and gym, so yes – you won’t have the need to leave it. After all, this is what makes a trip luxurious, isn’t it?
Experience the nightlife
Apart from the plethora of different restaurants and bars, Singapore is home to some of the liveliest clubs on the continent. Most visitors usually head to Clarke Quay for karaoke (which a very important nightlife event), but many also opt to visit great clubs such as Cherry Discotheque. It’s a very fun and sexy club that promises a great time. If this is not your cup of tea, you will be able to find a different club or pub that you will like more.
Ready for a shopping spree?
Finally, what is a luxury vacation without its own shopping spree? So, if you’re a shopaholic or you simply want to check out all parts of Singapore equally, you might want to try the Orchard Road, which is the best place for shopping not only in Singapore, but in Asia as well. There are always very interesting and exciting things happening there, ranging from daily and weekly events to some of the biggest fashion events and concerts. This means that you will definitely bump into an event that’s quite interesting and unique. This is also a great street to buy all the souvenirs that you might want to bring back home.
