The Lonely Planet magazine cited the republic, celebrating her Golden Jubilee in 2015, as one of the key reasons for picking Singapore for their top spot, alongside the food and emerging local fashion scene. Singapore is joined by The Philippines as one of two Asian countries making the top 10.
Singapore offers exceptional accommodation to rival any world city, glorious beaches, amazing attractions including the pulsating Sentosa Island, terrific shopping and of course the most fabulous food – whether from a humble hawker’s stall or a lavish five star restaurant. Because of its compact size, Singapore is also an ideal place to explore on foot, discover and be enraptured by its unique combination of Chinese, Malay and European cultures.
