Stay in one of IHG's seven Singapore hotels and you will be at the heart of a lively cultural melting pot. With a rich history as a prominent trading hub, this intriguing city-state combines a vibrant mix of Chinese, Indian, Malaysian and Western influences. Also known as The Lion City, Singapore is just 137 kilometres north of the equator and enjoys a tropical climate.
The ideal stopover for shopaholics, Singapore has a reputation as one of the best retail destinations in South East Asia. Fashion emporiums, antique stores and bustling street markets abound, but if you are a big spender you'll want to head straight for the designer boutiques of the renowned Orchard Road. Alternatively, the area's thriving contemporary art scene offers ample opportunities to invest in a masterpiece.
Food is a major draw in Singapore, with menus featuring delicacies such as Sambal stingray, oyster omelette and fish head curry. If you are a fan of fine dining you will be delighted by the wide range of stylish restaurants on offer, but don't worry it's not all about expensive eateries. Take a seat at a hawker centre and you can tuck into some of the tastiest street food that will fill your stomach without emptying your wallet.
Excellent transport facilities offer reliable links across Singapore for those looking to explore the urban landscape. However, if you enjoy a more natural setting, take a trip to the Singapore Botanical Gardens near the heart of the city to see a flourishing display of flora and fauna. Thrill seekers can hit the cycle trails around Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, dive with sharks at Underwater World in Sentosa, or join the Night Safari at the Singapore Zoo. Even beach lovers will find just what they're looking for with sandy stretches that run for more than 3 kilometres across Siloso, Palawan and Tanjong.
