TIME compiled the lists following nominations from its international network of correspondents and contributors, with an eye toward those offering new and exciting experiences.
One of the busiest aviation hubs in the region some people stray no further than the incredible airport, others spend a day or two exploring. There is far more to Singapore though than the Raffles Hotel and Gardens in the Bay.
TIME Magazine said:
“Singapore frequently tops lists as one of the world’s greenest, safest and most ethnically diverse cities, among other superlatives.
Adding to the Southeast Asian city-state’s many attributes:
The Clan Hotel Singapore, a sleek and centrally located establishment which opened this year with a top-floor infinity pool and a Rolls-Royce airport transfer for suite guests.
By contrast, the new 198-room Dusit Thani Laguna hotel—on the grounds of the Laguna National Golf & Country Club, about 10 miles from the city center—feels like an isolated oasis. It offers access to two championship golf courses, three swimming pools and a Thai-influenced spa, as well as a complimentary shuttle to downtown.
In an effort to further boost local tourism, Singapore is extending its SingapoRediscovers program—originally slated to end in June—through the end of the year, issuing vouchers to residents worth around $74 to spend on tours, hotel accommodations, attraction tickets and more.TIME Magazine
