A honeymoon in Singapore is an ideal destination to relax for a few days in a country renowned for its efficiency and high standard of service. It is a very compact city and offers outstanding shopping in some of its many air-conditioned shopping malls. Singapore also has some of the best restaurants in Asia, excellent parks and many colonial buildings and interesting areas to visit including Chinatown, Little India and the redeveloped Quay areas including the striking new Esplanade theatre and entertainment complex.
Singapore is a 21st century, modern, almost futuristic city, but it still nods to the past with its old temples and historic quarters. It is this relationship between its past and its forward facing future that makes honeymoon Singapore such an intoxifying city to visit.
About the activities:
The shopping in Singapore is right up there with the best in the world: from the luxurious, pristine shopping malls right through to rickety, Chinese medicinal stores and dusty, antique shops. The Botanical Gardens are always a major draw for those with plant-based inclinations, whilst the art scene is skyrocketing in quality at present.
About the climate:
April – August: If a luxurious honeymoon spent in Singapore sounds good to you, then we recommend visiting during April, May, June, July or August. In these months there is usually minimal rain, and the weather is incredibly warm – with temperatures often peaking at 32 degrees celsius. This is the perfect destination for a couple who want to explore a new culture whilst getting beautiful weather!
About the culture:
Singapore is a melting pot of various cultures, with the Chinese making up the predominant proportion. Equally in culinary terms, Singapore is a hybrid fusion of Malaysian, Chinese, Indonesian and Indian foods – and favourites include chilli-spiked crab, biryani and delectable laksa. Follow what the locals do and queue up in the hawker market lines, we can guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
What we love:
The energy. Singapore has this energy and buzz on every street that is simply infectious. Not to mention, the food, shopping, art and gardens all being world class.
Take me there!
