After enjoying a lovely stay in Luang Prabang and just before heading to the spectacular private reserve of Bawah, we made a brief stop in Singapore.

The Lion City offers a strategic location in the center of Southeast Asia and 2019 will be a year of celebration in the city, commemorating 200 years since Thomas Stanford Raffles founded it as a strategic port in 1819. That was the birth of modern Singapore.

For me, the most interesting thing about Singapore is perhaps its intangible and lesser-known heritage.

Of course, its spectacular botanical garden, its Gardens by the Bay or the Marina Bay Sands building will always be the background of some of our pictures. But the best thing is to be able to enjoy the most authentic side of Singapore: savouring all kinds of food in the Hawkers (Malay, Chinese, Indian food stalls…), in lesser-known markets such as Tiong Bahru. Learning how some of the stores in Chinatown manage to preserve their traditions in Chinese medicine or their ancestral forms of trade. Strolling through Haji Lane and discovering its graffiti, different forms of art, music and tiny charming shops and boutiques.

Art and design in Singapore have proliferated in recent years and we have been able to discover and design very interesting tours and visits.

Of course, there is also room for luxury, sophistication and elegance in Singapore. After enjoying a bubble bath with the best views of the bay, from one of the suites at the Ritz-Carlton Millenia, nothing better than having a drink in the new Atlas cocktail bar and dining at one of the best tables in the city.

There is much to discover in this city that is constantly evolving and its excellent location makes it a very interesting stopover before continuing to your next destination.
