Singapore

No question, this dazzling red dot just north of the equator serves up a dizzying blend of food, culture, infrastructure, shopping and history as varied as its nicknames. It’s also the cleanest and safest destination in Asia to explore with ease. Singapore boasts some of the world’s firsts too: the largest rooftop infinity pool, the Formula 1 night race, and the safari park for nocturnal animals. So whatever you fancy, rest assured that this island we call home will tickle it with fervour.

A global city that roars with splendour…

Once a tiny city-state facing an uncertain future, the Lion City now roars to international acclaim as a futuristic global city. Vertical gardens bloom beneath ultramodern glass domes and ethereal supertrees at Gardens by the Bay. The skyline delivers a commanding view of towering glass skyscrapers standing side by side with the old shophouses and godowns that echo the city’s entrepôt past.

From the bright lights of Chinatown and the colour and spice of Little India, to the rare antiquities and traditional confectionary of Kampong Glam, immerse yourself in a melting pot of cultures that make up Singapore’s multicultural national fabric. Brave the heat and dig into Singapore’s renowned hawker food at your nearest hawker center or market, and taste the different cultural influences of our mouth-watering cuisine.

After getting your fill of Singapore Slings at the Raffles Hotel Long Bar, Mother Nature awaits, tempting you to explore her virginal canopies and epic nature trails at Hort Park. Take a trip down to Sentosa, an island awash with beaches, world-class resorts, breezy boardwalks and zip wires. Explore Pulau Ubin and experience bygone village life in the “kampongs” and discover the coastal diversity of Chek Jawa. No matter where you go, Singapore’s unique style and charm never ceases to intrigue.

While shifting sands may sculpt images in your mind, Oman is more than dunes and lunar moonscapes. One of the most curious calling cards of the Arabian Peninsula, Oman will take you on a journey through intricate oases, winding fishing fjords flanked by sleepy communities, the rippling splendor of the Al Hajar mountain range, and wild beaches awash with orange blossom sands and electric blue waters.
