Singapore is a multicultural garden city where 21st-Century skyscrapers sit side by side with a rich colonial past. Extravagant, wealthy and packed full of contrasts, this is a city-state with an infectious energy, renowned for its sensational shopping malls, street markets and mouth-watering cuisine. Home to the cheapest Michelin-starred meal in the world and a space-age botanic garden where towering super trees epitomise the modern vision of the city, its riverside setting and beautiful green spaces only add to the charm. Abundant with history and incredible architecture, Singapore is a cosmopolitan outdoor dream; from its sky-rise greenery to the iconic treetop walkways, what once was a high-rise concrete jungle has today transformed itself into one of Asia's greenest cities.
