Singapore has a wealth of exciting attractions, adventures and experiences
Positioned on the island country of the same name, the city of Singapore is one of Southeast Asia’s most vibrant destinations.
Lying at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula and north of some of Indonesia’s most exclusive islands, this international metropolis promises an exciting and luxurious experience for the elitetraveler. A true melting pot of modern Asia, Singapore has been settled by Chinese, Europeans, Malays and Indians. As a result, the city offers a rich history and high quality of life for all those who live and visit.
Singapore is an intriguing mix of modern and traditional. The humid tropical breezes and exhilarating scent of jasmine are contrasted by the shopping malls and designer boutiques, in addition to the cutting-edge technology on offer. As regular visitors will tell you, people come to Singapore for two main reasons: the food and the shopping. Here, in this guide we have selected the best of both in this stunning city. We have also chosen the best of Singapore’s nightlife, where you can rub shoulders with celebrities and the city’s movers and shakers. The Elite Traveler Destination Guide to Singapore provides the perfect introduction to the contemporary marvels and historic charm of this wonderful island city.
Named after the trees that lined this street in the 19th century, Orchard Road is Singapore’s major shopping and nightlife district.
Rivaling New York’s Fifth Avenue for high-end fashion and entertainment, elite travelers will find Orchard Road the perfect destination, whether it’s purchasing a 24K gold-plated chandelier, or visiting the world-famous Alley Bar on a Wednesday night that you are after. Along with some of the city’s grandest hotels, Orchard Road is also a hot destination for lovers of high tech equipment and the latest in digital gaming. An area not to be missed!
Sentosa Island lies south of Singapore and is connected to the mainland by a causeway.
A must visit for elite clientele, the area boasts some exceptional attractions, including the Tiger Sky Tower (Singapore’s tallest viewing tower), Fort Siloso and the Butterfly Park & Insect Kingdom. In addition, some of the country’s finest beaches are situated on this five-kilometer square island. While there are many transport links from the mainland, we recommend taking the VIP Jewel Cable car, featured on page 19 of this guide. Providing 360-degree views of Singapore, the harbor and Sentosa Island, it’s a breathtaking ride.
Bringing a slice of Hollywood glamour to your trip, the Universal Studios VIP Tour, at Resorts World Sentosa, is the ultimate theme park experience for all elite travelers.
An experienced VIP Tour Guide will make you feel like a celebrity as they personally escort you around the Park’s attractions. In addition to the Studios tour, you’ll receive the red carpet treatment with fast-track priority access to the rides and shows. No waiting in line! In addition VIP guests will also benefit from an array of exclusive highlights, including a private photo session with Universal Studios characters and free food at certain venues around the park.
