Our Favourite Itineraries
In our Client's Words...
We stayed at two different hotels in Singapore (and one on Langkawi). Each was magnificent with everything one could wish for and delightful and helpful staff. The highlights were Gardens on the Bay and the Zoo! Bushbaby have been our tour operators for 17 years and this holiday was our 12th trip. They advise and steer their clients towards their perfect holiday and make it extra special and one to remember for always.

Where to Go in Singapore
There are a myriad of ways to spend your time in Singapore, whatever your age and interests. Marina Bay, the bustling waterfront, is a great place to start. Explore its long, breezy promenade that links various attractions. For the city’s best viewing points, ascend to the Sands Sky Park at the very top of Marina Bay Sands hotel or take a turn on the Singapore Flyer, the world’s largest observation wheel.
Singapore is known as Asia’s “Garden City” for good reason – its parks and green spaces are a major draw. Gardens by the Bay blends modern horticultural technology with innovative architecture and beautiful scenery. Don’t miss the children’s waterpark and 50-metre-tall structures of the Supertree Grove. Nature lovers will enjoy the lush tropical flora and fauna of the Botanic Gardens with its National Orchid Centre.
For a taste of Singapore’s diverse culture, head to Chinatown, Kampong Glam and Little India. A colourful blend of old and new, they flood the senses: lit with lanterns and lined with shophouses and market stalls wafting with local Chinese, Malay and Indian flavours.
Dining is a national pastime and one to be taken advantage of. Expect a diverse range of options, from the locals’ favourite Hawker Centres to award-winning celebrity chef restaurants. At night, the waterfront comes alive with Clarke Quay and Boat Quay’s bars, restaurants and nightclubs.
Just a short ride from the city, Singapore Zoo features a beautiful rainforest setting, offering wildlife experiences and up-close encounters with amazing creatures. Take a boat ride through recreated river habitats or return at dusk for a night safari.
Sentosa Island is Singapore’s fun-filled island resort – for extra thrills, ride the cable car to its attractions. Sentosa offers something for everyone, including tropical beaches, theme parks, water parks and a world-class aquarium. It even features indoor skydiving and Southeast Asia’s steepest zip wire.
