Singapore, a city of many contrasts is, in many ways where West meets East. A relatively small city compared to some of its contemporaries with big in surprises hidden around every corner. This city attracts both rich and not so rich visitors and offers plenty of experiences to suit all budgets.

Historical shophouses and pre-war buildings still stand with a backdrop of modern skyscrapers and other architectural wonders.



Talking wonderful architecture, no visit would be complete without a trip to The Sands Sky Park Observation Deck, a popular tourist attraction that overlooks Singapore from the top of the iconic Marina Bay Sands. The wood-floored viewing area is located at the “stern” of the ship-shaped Sky Park and can hold up to 900 guests. It offers a spectacular 360-degree view of Singapore.

In Singapore, the water taxis or bumboats are commonly used for quick transport and river tours. These bumboats are often painted with eyes and a face supposedly to “see the danger ahead.” Take one to the Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade is a 3.5-kilometre along-the-bay walkway which gives you access to many attractions at the Marina Centre, Collyer Quay, and the Bayfront. The promenade is designed as an environment-friendly recreation area. There are mist sprays to relieve guests from the blazing Singapore heat; breeze shelters with motion sensor fans to provide visitors with a cool stop from a tour walking around the bay.

The well-known Orchard Road, the shopping mecca of this city, owes its name to its history as a farming area filled with fruit orchards. Today it is home to several malls filled with famous designer boutiques and branded stores.

In contrast, Singapore’s Chinatown is a delightful mix of old and new in the city’s central area. It is a gold mine of Chinese heritage and culture with its old temples, historic shophouses, and traditional wet markets. Family-run stores and teahouses can also be found here, giving visitors a glimpse of the old Chinatown lifestyle.

After a busy first day, should you and your fellow Air Crew have the energy a visit to Clarke Quay is a must. This premier nightlife hub of the city which, as soon as the sun sets, transforms into a lively and vibrant nightspot. This historical riverfront district was named after Singapore’s 2nd Governor, Sir Andrew Clarke. The quay was home to warehouses that stored commercial goods transported from the nearby Boat Quay. Today, the old warehouses have been converted into blocks of bars and restaurants that attract partygoers to this side of Singapore.

After a busy first day, a visit to the National Orchid Garden housed within Singapore Botanic Gardens is a must. It sprawls across three hectares on the botanical garden’s highest hill. The garden’s landscaped slopes display more than 1,000 orchid species and 2,000 hybrids. This gorgeous garden is divided into four zones that follow the four seasons with a distinct colour theme for each zone.

There is still so much more to explore in this fascinating city but one last thing to experience is one of the many food stall areas where you can sample foods from many different cultures. A great idea is to each order something different and sample each other’s food.

All this and more is possible when you make the decision to sign up for one of The Cabin Crew Academy’s flight training courses.
