The second smallest country in Asia, but don’t be fooled by her diminutive size – the island is a dazzling blend of old and new, with classic shophouses in the shadow of larger-than-life skyscrapers.
Once part of the British Empire like its neighbour, Malaysia, Singapore is today one of the world’s most developed countries. Also known as the Lion City, Singapore was founded as a colonial trading post by Sir Stamford Raffles in 1819.
It boasts a futuristic skyline, world-class restaurants and some of the best shopping. Known for being remarkably well-planned, clean and safe, Singapore is also delightfully green, with more than 50 major parks and several nature reserves.
Our tour of Malaysia, Borneo & Singapore visits this remarkable country, where you will enjoy a tour of the riverfront area and spend time in the beautiful botanic gardens – keep an eye out for the orchid enclosure, an outstanding feature.
