Welcome to Singapore


Enthusiastic, innovative and unashamedly forward-thinking, Singapore is the epitome of Asia’s archetypal audacity and determination. Taking great delight in attracting the world’s open-mouthed gaze, this tiny island has managed to transform itself from a British trading outpost into a prosperous city-state that recently celebrated fifty years of independence. It may be a young nation in a hurry, but it also boasts a rich secular culture and a multi-faceted population. And perhaps it’s Singapore’s paradoxes that make it so beautiful: like its traditional 3-storey shophouses juxtaposed against sleek, modern skyscrapers nestled in the clouds in the background; or the mismatch between the made-to-measure millionaire businessman’s suit and the modest table which people dine at, such as the hawker’s stall or at a food court, those popular eating areas with their enticing aromas.

The immigration that keeps this magnetic city moving comes from Malaysia, India, China and the West, as witnessed by the different neighbourhoods with their enduring, vibrant traditions. In Chinatown, a melting-pot of different customs live in harmony together, where you can visit the impressive Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, or the Sri Mariamman Hindu Temple. Along the river, near the colonial district and its inherited buildings, Clarke Quay is home to a vibrant nightlife scene and some impressive shopping centres. You'll find a tremendous range of shops to visit throughout the city, including the endless row of shopping malls which line Orchard Road: Ion, Tangs, Paragon and Takashimaya. There's also the iconic skyline of the Marina Bay Sands and its big wheel, the Singapore Flyer, which served as a dramatic backdrop of the annual Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix.

The nearby Gardens by The Bay, with their majestic Supertrees, Cloud Forest and lush plant life, represent this very green city’s designer side. As well as its many parks, Singapore is also home to an extraordinary Botanic Garden boasting an extensive collection of ginger varieties and orchids. To continue your exploration of this destination’s flora and fauna, visit the Singapore Zoo and the amazing Night Safari, or the neighbouring island of Sentosa, a resort known for its greenery and plethora of peacocks, as well as for its delightful spas and the Universal Studios theme park.
Singapore shows off its youthful past in rich cultural establishments such as the Asian Civilisations Museum or the Peranakan Museum, which celebrates this little-known eponymous culture. In a city that is constantly moving forward, science is celebrated at the Science Center and the ArtScience Museum. Last but not least, art is also well represented. Visible on the streets due to a well-developed patronage system, it can also be found in galleries and in shopping centres. While the brand new Pinacothèque, the Parisian institution’s little sister, is packed with European exhibits, Asian talents are showcased in the Singapore Art Museum and the National Art Gallery, which opened in autumn 2015. The Singapore Art Fair, launched in 2014, shows that the city has every intention of establishing its international reputation in this field.
Another major event in Singapore is the Singapore Food Festival, which was established in 1994. With so many great restaurants, street markets and food courts, it’s common for the city’s residents to spend more time dining out than within their own kitchens. There are plenty of leading French chefs represented here, such as Joël Robuchon, Anne-Cécile Degenne, at Xperience, and Julien Royer at Restaurant Jaan. Local chefs, such as André Chiang, Justin Quek and Willin Low, also fly the flag for a gastronomy scene that’s filled with all sorts of different influences. In Singapore, cultures collide in the street as well as on the plate.
