Singapore is the world’s only island city-state. Boom! There’s your random fact for the day. Now on to more pressing matters. This place is a futuristic metropolis sitting in the middle of a rainforest-covered island. With a food scene that’ll make a foodie blush and a zoo that’s only open at night, we can’t figure out what you’re waiting for. Take a look at lastminute.com.au’s deals on Singapore packages and discover something new.
When your flight lands at Singapore Changi Airport (SIN), take a taxi for the 17km drive to downtown. From there, your transport options are endless. Well, not endless, but there’s plenty of options for getting to and from accommodation in Singapore.
If you hopped one of the red-eye flights to Singapore, there’s no better way to clear your mind before the day begins than by cruising through the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Waterfalls and orchids, what could be better?
How’s your appetite? Probably through the roof by now. Well, don’t worry, because Telok Ayer Market is a food-lover’s Shangri-La. Chili crab, hokkien mee and nasi goreng (fried rice) are served up in mass quantities. And if you think you can stomach the smell, crack open a durian fruit.
If you’re on one of the Singapore flights that touch down at night, check out the world’s first nocturnal zoo at Night Safari, Singapore. Not only will you get to view cool animals, there may even be a fire-eating display going down. A bowl of rice just isn’t enough for some people.
Locals know best, especially when it comes to entertainment. When they tell you to go to Esplanade-Theatres on the Bay and catch a performance of the National Symphony Orchestra, you should do it. Then stuff yourself silly with yakitori at the Lau Pa Sat hawker centre.
Southeast Asia is a hotbed of activity, from the food scene to vendor streets and tourist traps. You don’t believe us? Browse lastminute.com.au’s cheap flights to Singapore and see for yourself. We expect a thank-you card upon your return.
