World-class spa treatments, sun-kissed river cruises and idyllic nature just some of the ways to relax and rejuvenate in Singapore.
1. Civic District
Start your trip right in the heart of the heritage-rich Civic District by staying in luxury and style at Raffles Hotel. First established in 1887, the hotel has long been synonymous with a blend of luxury and history. It’s also home to Raffles Long Bar, birthplace of the iconic Singapore Sling.
If you’re looking to lose yourself in fascinating stories from the past, the Asian Civilisations Museum will take you on a trip that spans centuries, with its collection of scintillating stories and historical artefacts from the region.
Alternatively, take a stroll through Fort Canning Park, and bask in both greenery and heritage. Formerly known as ‘Bukit Larangan’—or Forbidden Hill— this green sanctuary is home to stories from our city’s storied past and makes for a charming getaway.
For skin treatments that’ll have you glowing with health, be sure to book a session at Pablo Blau. The spa’s signature salt room therapy is bound to have you feeling rejuvenated.
2. Duxton Hill
For a local meal that emphasizes both health and hearty ingredients, head to Herbal Oasis on Neil Road. This cosy café serves up dishes inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine—think red date tea muffins, herbal soups and aromatic teas.
If you’re looking to unwind with a bout of retail therapy, the neighbourhood is home to a range of hidden gems. Lose yourself in a novel or a travel memoir at Littered with Books, peruse Japanese craftmanship at Huls Gallery Singapore or find new music to soothe your soul at Retrophonic Records.
3. Marina Bay
In the evening, drop by Marina Bay, to discover a world of futuristic beauty. This modern district is home to architectural marvels, from the soaring structure of Marina Bay Sands to the lotus-like design of the ArtScience Museum.
Take a sunset stroll along the water of the bay, discover world class skincare from Aesop and SK-II at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands®, or admire the SuperTrees and beautiful flora at Gardens by the Bay.
