A visionary and cosmopolitan country

An archipelago made up of a main island and around sixty islets, Singapore boasts multiple geographic and tourist attractions. The capital of this small Asian country welcomes travelers in structures that are both authentic and luxurious. Visiting this country, populated by many ethnic groups with overflowing ambitions, allows you to live unique experiences, both cultural and culinary.

What to see and do in Singapore?

At the heart of the modern city in perpetual evolution, the attractions of Singapore are numerous. The two casinos, the Marina Bay Sands complex, the Universal Studios theme park or the spectacular Gardens by the Bay make this small city a world tourist center. Do not hesitate to go to Merlion Park where the emblems of Singapore stand out and to Gogreen Segway Eco Adventure, to enjoy one of the most beautiful beaches in the country!

Prestigious hotels and great restaurants

The 5-star suites generally offer gourmet restaurants, specializing in Indian or Singaporean cuisine. On the menu, fish curry, Rojak (vegetable salad) and Satay (meat skewers) dare the mixture of spices and flavors. Before catching their return flight, many stop for an afternoon shopping on Orchard Road, Little India or Chinatown.
