Singapore is an evolving nation and chameleon of an assortment of annual activities from opposite spectrums of fashion to sports. From the idyllic Singapore Botanic Gardens to flying high in the Singapore Flyer, the city’s culture hub is ever throbbing. Immerse yourself in Little India or within the ornamenting neighbourhood of Chinatown that has evolved with bustling boroughs, while other parts are left untouched. Raw in ancestry and history. For thrill seekers and families, a new adventure awaits the new traveler – a unique experience on the River Safari paired with a sensual encounter in the Night Safari or a deep dive at the Marine Life Park – Singapore is clear on its trajectory for novelty in tourism.
BAZAAR curated a journey of its own with a fashionable take on haute living in Singapore’s arts and interior scene. Unkept secrets await the cultural traveler that will timelessly map Singapore as a desired lifestyle destination.
