From India, connectivity to Singapore is excellent. Many airlines, such as Singapore Airlines, Jet Airways, etc., operate direct flights from most major Indian cities as well as some tier 2 cities. There is a mix of full service as well as low cost carriers to choose from.
Indian citizens need a visa to enter Singapore. The application process is fairly simple & straight forward. It takes about 3-4 working days to obtain a visa.
Singapore, located close to the equator, has a year round tropical climate with temperatures ranging from 27° - 30° C.
The monsoons start in November and last until January. The months of February, March and April are quite pleasant but the peak season when one will find most visitors is from July to September.
Each time I've visited Singapore, the city has never failed to amaze me with its efficiency. From the time one lands to clearing passport control, collecting your luggage, getting a cab and reaching your hotel, is rarely ever more than an hour! Everything JUST WORKS in this city!
This city holds a unique attraction for event planners. Rated as one of the top MICE destinations for several years in a row, Singapore is easily accessible from any corner of the world and the support event planners receive from Singapore Tourism Board and the Singapore Exhibition & Convention Bureau is amazing.
There are enough and more hotels at varying price points to choose from and there are venues to suit any size and style of audience and event. Singapore offers a balanced mix of business and leisure for conference & exhibition delegates.
WHAT NOT TO MISS IN SINGAPORE
Built in 1972, the Merlion has been a symbol of Singapore through the ages and remains the quintessential selfie spot on everyones trip.
The fish body represents Singapore's origin as a fishing village & the lion head represents Singapore's original name — Singapura — meaning "lion city".
SkyPark Observation Deck
57 storeys above, on the Marina Bay Sands hotel, the observation deck features an infinity pool (open only to hotel residents), and some stunning views of Gardens by the Bay.One can see Marina South Pier all the way out to the Singapore Strait. For photographers, this is arguably the most vantage point in the city.
Gardens by the Bay
Gardens by the Bay is a nature park spanning 101 hectares of reclaimed land. It is a showpiece of horticulture and garden artistry.The park comes alive after sundown when the trees are beautifully illuminated making it look absolutely spectacular.
The Flyer, similar to the London Eye, is a giant observation wheel offers 360-degree city views, a panorama that stretches to parts of Malaysia and Indonesia on a clear day.Be warned, one trip takes about 30 minutes and seems painfully slow!
Hop on a cable car from Mt. Faber and head over to Sentosa. Sentosa Island is home to many attractions; Siloso beach (ideal for team building events), SEA Aquarium, Dolphin Island and Universal Studios amongst many others.
Universal Studios is a hollywood themed park, bringing alive the movies through various rides, shows and attractions.Make sure you don't miss the main street parade and the closing fireworks ceremony in the evening.
For those all important souvenirs & gifts to take back home, you should head over to either Mustafa Shopping Centre, Bugis Walking St. or Pagoda St.
Singapore has 2 casinos - The Marina Bay Sands Casino which sprawls across 15000 sq. mts. with over 600 table games, and, the equally large, Resorts World Casino, located on Sentosa island.Both casinos have a strict dress code and floor rules - guests wearing singlets, shorts, slippers, hats / caps, helmets, sunglasses, masks, veils or any other items which conceal their facial features (fully or partially) are prohibited from entering the Casino.
And, the most important thing to remember - bring your passport otherwise you will not be allowed in!
