Cheap flights to Singapore from Australia are now available from a whole host of airlines. They whiz you into one of the major aviation hubs of South East Asia, from where extra short-haul connections could be your ticket to the sparkling beaches of Thailand, the rolling surf of Bali, the majestic Buddhist stupas of Vietnam – the list goes on. Linger in this metropolis, though, and you can delve into soy-scented Chinatown bazaars, you can wonder at the grand skyscrapers of iconic Marina Bay, sip Singapore Slings in chic colonial resorts, and get a taste of the wild and wonderful landscapes that dress the Malay Peninsula.
A glitzy and grand halo of skyscrapers, bars, and fine-dining eateries that's crowned by the triptych Marina Bay Sands building – not to be missed!
Sandy beaches, monorails, and loop-de-looping rides meet on the resort islands of Sentosa.
