A colourful, cosmopolitan city with a warm welcome. Compact, easy to get around and family-friendly - it certainly has a lot to offer the visitor.
This is a vibrant metropolis with a rich cultural heritage, full of contrasts and surprises - from the colonial architecture of the iconic Raffles Hotel to the futuristic, high-rise structures that dominate the magnificent skyline. All this against a backdrop of tropical greenery and year-round warm weather. There are so many attractions to see and visit, most within easy reach of the venue.
Take a walk along Marina Bay waterfront promenade, stunning both day or night - stop off at the Marina Bay Sands, a truly awe-inspiring structure with the world's highest and largest infinity pool - spend some time in Gardens by the Bay - visit Supertree Grove with solar-powered trees - marvel at the architectural brilliance of the ArtScience Museum - sample some of the famous chilli crab en route to Chinatown. OR, for a complete contrast, cross the bridge or take a cable car to the sandy beaches of Sentosa Island.
