Singapore is a sovereign city state Southeast Asia that is increasingly becoming one of the most important global hubs for the luxury tourism for many reasons. It has gained important distinctions: as the most technological nation, world’s smartest city, as one of the world’s safest and cleanest countries, and third largest financial center with the third-highest GDP per capita worldwide. This makes it one of the most appreciated places to spend a vacation. So what are the most luxurious things that you can’t miss in Singapore?
Regarding the hotellerie you can’t miss the opportunity to stay at Marina Bay Sands Hotel, on the Bay of Singapore. It was designed by architect Moshe Safdie and is the most expensive resort ever built, at a cost of 8 billion Singapore dollars. With a casino, more than 300 retail stores and more than 80 restaurants ( including top chefs such as the Gordon Ramsey and Wolfgang Puck) it represents the perfect hotel for the shopping- and food-addicted. What makes the hotel special is the world’s largest rooftop infinity pool at the 57th floor where you can swim at a height of 200 meters and relax in the shade of a palm tree.
If you would like to have a dining experience outside the box you should go to Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle Hawker stand in Singapore.
Here you will have the opportunity of eating a luxury food but in a traditional contest such as the hawker center. A hawker center is an open air complex housing many stalls that sell a variety of inexpensive food, starting from $1 with a maximum of $25. What makes this stall special is the fact that it sells cheap food, and in 2016 had received a Michelin star. Here you can taste just one dish, a chicken with rice and soya sauce, with a price of 2 Singapore dollars (3 Euro). During the years the recipe has always remained the same, handed down from father to daughter.
Orchard Road is the perfect location for shopping in Singapore, a two-kilometres stretch of road named after the fruit orchards or the plantations that were common in this area in the 19th century. With thousands of shops, the most important mall is Tangs, founded in 1934 and established on Orchard Road in the 1950s. Orchard Central is a mall with an exterior featuring local artist Matthew Ngui’s digital art membrane.
