The entire island nation may be barely over 700 square kilometres in area, but don't underestimate this little red dot - Singapore has consistently been ranked amongst the world's richest countries in the last decade, with a mighty GDP disproportionate to its minute size. Marvel at tiny Singapore's squeaky clean streets, world-renowned clockwork efficiency and admire the splendid trees, bushes, flowers and plant life that are just everywhere - there's a reason why the country is also known as the 'Garden City'!
To make the most of your vacation in Singapore, though, staying in the right place is key. You may have heard that the little island is one of the world’s most expensive places to live in, and that’s true - but that’s no reason you still can’t have a good time on all kinds of travel budgets. From the glittering, luxurious high-end hotels of the Central Business District, the quirky accommodations of pleasure island Sentosa to the old-world charm of Chinatown, find your best accommodation fit in Singapore with Skyscanner.
Where to stay in Singapore
For the business travellers
If you’re a business traveller with little time to spare, the luxurious hotels sprinkled liberally the Marina Bay Central Business District are the answer to your prayers. Surrounded by the sparkling high-rise office buildings of hundreds of different mega-companies, there’s a good chance that wherever you need to go and whoever you need to meet during your trip are just around the corner from your hotel.
Besides that, all your entertainment, shopping and dining needs can also be taken care of in a jiffy - Marina Bay boasts a splendid collection of Michelin-starred restaurants, luxury shopping malls, theatres, and iconic landmarks all rolled into one scenic waterside region; you need not venture far for anything whatsoever.
If you’re travelling with little ones in tow, you may be much happier staying on the self-proclaimed State of Fun, Sentosa resort island, instead.
There’s so much to do in Sentosa you may not have time to try them all - from getting your adrenaline pumping on high-speed rollercoasters and shaking hands with the lovely Disney princesses at the Universal Studios Singapore theme park, exploring the deep blue sea at the Marine Life Park, sunbathing on the man-made Siloso Beach to riding in cable cars and zip-lining through the rainforest canopy. Fun, themed hotels are a-plenty on the island as well.
But if you’ll like to immerse yourself in Asian culture (plus score a budget roof over your head) then Chinatown is for you. A hotbed of historic temples and mosques, old shophouses and a slew of chic new boutique cafes and eateries, Chinatown is a great hangout for both young travelers and families. You’ll find budget hotels and backpacker hostels all around the area for your convenience - how’s that for a holiday in an expensive city on a budget?
I loved it because of the diversity there, though I am a tourist I somehow feel that I belong. And their public transportation is top notch! Will definitely be back in Singapore.
I always love going back in this place. Clean, safe, lots of tasty food to try and great places to visit with family.
I loved it here. I stayed at Swissôtel Merchant Court and it was amazing. Totally recommend!
We love Singapore. A very safe and clean place that is a must-do for any traveller.
