Singapore has always drawn visits from a variety of sea craft. Merchants of every race, colour and faith were quickly drawn to the island, and by 1911, Singapore had a population of 250,000 people, comprising 48 races, speaking 54 languages! Malay is now awarded the status of “the national language".
There is nowhere else on earth like Singapore. Ultra-modern skyscrapers, tropical rainforest, a few reminders of its colonial past and a rich assortment of colourful cultures collide to create a country that’s dynamic, bustling and energetic. You’ll also be struck by how scrupulously clean it is. If you love the bright lights and city life-style, then a cruise to Singapore is ideal. Significant investment in its tourism industry has seen the development of Marina Bay Sands and Resorts World, which offer casinos, a theme park, museums, fantastic shopping restaurants and bars.
Memories of your cruise to Singapore will remain with your forever. It really does have the wow factor: bright lights, great food and a very warm welcome.
Gardens by the Bay
The multi-award winning Gardens by the Bay spans 101 hectares of reclaimed land. Inspired by an orchid, Bay Garden South resembles Singapore’s national flower, Vanda ‘Miss Joaquim’. The famous Supertree structures are tree-shaped vertical gardens between nine and 16 storeys tall. Walk on the suspended walkway between two Supertrees to enjoy a bird’s eye view of the gardens. In the evening, catch the sky show of choreographed lights and sounds at the Garden Rhapsody amidst the Supertrees. Over-sized seashell-shaped greenhouses recreate chilly mountain climates. Unique to Gardens by the Bay is the Cloud Forest. Within the enclosed compound, a 35-metre tall mountain is veiled in mist and covered in lush vegetation amidst the world’s tallest indoor waterfall.
Marina Bay Sands
Marina Bay Sands is an integrated resort known for transforming Singapore’s city skyline. It comprises three 55-storey towers of extravagant hotel rooms and luxury suites equipped with personal butler service. It’s architecture is completed by the Sands SkyPark which crowns the three towers. The SkyPark offers 360-degree views of Singapore from the observation deck.
There doesn’t seem to be an official recipe for one of these long drink cocktails, but it is generally accepted that the ‘original‘ contains gin, cherry brandy and pineapple juice, among other mixers. A Maraschino cherry can often be seen as a garnish.
