Singapore Holidays

The Singapore skyline at night

As a stopover or a destination in its own right, the buzz of Singapore will stay with you, long after you leave. It’s a thriving business metropolis, but also where a melting pot of Chinese, Malay, Indian and European influences. The ‘Lion City’ does futuristic well, but diverse even better. You’ll find it in the green Gardens by the Bay and Singapore Botanic Gardens, in the temples and food outlets of Chinatown and Little India, and in the 19th-century markets. Its humid climate also offers an opportunity to soak up some warmth too – sip Singapore Slings in the sunshine, shop along Orchard Road, or head to family-friendly Sentosa for beaches and theme parks aplenty.

When to Go

When to Go to Singapore

Most destinations claim it, but Singapore really is somewhere you can visit year-round. Sitting between the first and second parallels, its location close to the equator means that the Lion City’s hot and humid climate is fairly consistent from month to month. In fact, it only has two seasons: wet and dry. The island city-state is busiest during the local school holidays (Jun-Jul and Nov-Dec), but otherwise, there’s never really a bad time to explore. For more information, see our when to go to Singapore guide.

Where to Stay

Where to Stay in Singapore

Having trouble deciding where to stay in Singapore? Start by considering what you’re most hoping to get from your holiday. If you’re due for an indulgent shopping spree, staying near Orchard Road makes sense. Alternatively, if classic touristy activities are what you’re seeking, lean towards the resorts of Sentosa Island.The best areas to stay in Singapore also include Chinatown and Little India – perfect if you want to immerse yourself in the Chinese or Indian aspects of Singapore’s culture (and cuisine!). Of course, if you have the budget for it, the iconic Marina Bay Sands is hard to resist.

Marina Bay

The sensational Marina Bay Sands is perhaps Singapore's most recognisable building. The ‘ship' upheld by the three main pillars is a sight to behold. Staying here gives you direct access to the massive casino, the classy Shoppes, and the largest rooftop pool in the world. You could also enjoy a daily stroll through the Gardens by the Bay, which are located just across the road from the Marina Bay Sands.

Orchard Road

Shopaholics, look no further than Orchard Road. This retail mecca is an urban paradise. Staying here, right in the heart of Singapore, will give you immediate access to the countless stores, eateries, attractions, and facilities that Orchard Road has to offer. You can literally shop ‘til you drop because your room is right there ready to catch you. Big hotel brands here include Holiday Inn, Pac Pacific, Hilton, and Marriott.

Little India

The accommodation options in Little India tend to be boutique and quirky, much like the area's shop houses with their colourful shopfronts. If you love Indian cuisine, you'll love being greeted by the wafting aroma of delicious food every time you step out of your hotel lobby. Hotels in this area tend to be quite affordable, and staying here gives you easy access to many of the city's best attractions.

Bras Basah Road

Located just minutes from Orchard Road, Bras Basah Road accommodation offers a less frenetic place to stay that's still very much central. The world-renowned Carlton Hotel Singapore and Rendezvous Grand Hotel Singapore are both found here. When you stay on Bras Basah Road, many fantastic attractions will be within walking distance, including the National Museum of Singapore, the Peranakan Museum, and Fort Canning Park.


Chinatown is a thriving area full of markets, restaurants, shops, people, and some fascinating temples. You'll get great value on accommodation here, and delicious Chinese dishes will never be more than a short walk away. If you plan on spending some quality time in the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum, Chinatown is a smart place to stay.

Sentosa Island

Keen to spend your holiday on exciting movie-themed rides, exploring aquariums, watching incredible shows, and relaxing on the beach? Sentosa Island is the fun capital of Singapore, so staying at a resort on the island makes perfect sense if an activity-packed holiday is what you're after. Start your getaway by ascending Tiger Sky Tower, then make your way to Universal Studios Singapore.
