One of Asia’s economic tigers, the wealthy nation of Singapore is home to towering skyscrapers, fine-dining restaurants, and impressive landmarks. Fondly regarded as the Garden City, Singapore has successfully managed to celebrate mankind’s modernity whilst encouraging nature to flourish. On luxury holidays to Singapore, a visit to its celebrated Gardens by the Bay cannot be missed. Among its many achievements, it has become a peaceful home for cheeky otters and an oasis for tropical vegetation and conservatory ferns that tower over the heart of a city.
We love Singapore for its diversity and modernity and highly recommend incorporating it into the beginning or end of a luxury holiday to Asia. When you embark on luxury holidays to Singapore with OROKO, we’ll arrange restaurant reservations, privately guided tours, private transfers, and luxury accommodation.

POCKET GUIDE TO LUXURY HOLIDAYS TO SINGAPORE
Combine with Indonesia
At OROKO, one of our favourite ways to enjoy luxury holidays to Singapore is to combine it with Indonesia, perfect for those wanting to experience both island luxury and futuristic city experiences. In Indonesia, explore the jungle-covered island of Pulau Bawah and snorkel, paddleboard or kayak its turquoise lagoons. On arrival in Singapore, embark on a guided excursion of the city’s renowned Gardens by the Bay, followed by a Michelin Guide street food tour, enjoying delectable bowls of noodles and fragrant biryani as you go.
Best Time to Visit
Although the dry season in Singapore lasts from February to August, the months of February – April are considered the ideal time to experience Singapore. This will ensure the best weather, with temperatures ranging from 24˚C and 31˚C. The beginning of February usually marks Chinese New Year so be sure to book ahead of time if you want to partake in the festivities. For film buffs, the Singapore International Film Festival is held in April and is the country’s longest-running independent cultural event.
Combine with Malaysia
Striking the perfect balance of modern luxuries and cultural treasures, combining a city break in Singapore with Malaysia’s authentic hubs is an incredible way to experience the best of both countries. Begin with a Michelin Guide street food tour in modern Singapore before leaving for Malaysia, a destination of contrasts. Start in coastal Malacca before setting off for multi-cultural Kuala Lumpur. Next up is the Batu Caves pilgrimage site and unbridled beach luxury on Pangkor Laut Island, finishing your journey in colourful Penang.
Visit Singapore on a luxury rail holiday
An incredible yet largely undiscovered way of exploring the highlights of Southeast Asia is on board the Eastern & Oriental Express, A Belmond Train. Board the luxury, antique carriages in energetic Bangkok, enjoying world-class dining followed by drinks in the piano bar or relaxation in your glamorous cabin. Witness the world go by as you journey through rural villages and paddy fields across the heart of Malaysia before arriving in Singapore, the food capital of Southeast Asia.
