Eid Escapes 2019: Singapore

23 May 2019

A holiday that won't break the bank

Singapore, fondly known as the Little Red Dot due to its size, is often overlooked as a corporate city. It’s a popular business hub, yas, but it also has a rich culture of its own, and enough attractions to keep an entire family entertained.  
And while you can easily spend a few weeks travelling the likes of Thailand and Indonesia, you only need a couple of days to see the best of Singapore, which makes it the perfect destination for an exciting weekend away.
Just like Dubai has the Burj Al Arab, Paris has the Eiffel Tower and London has Big Ben, no trip to Singapore is complete without a photo with the Merlion, the city’s national icon with the head of a lion and the body of a fish. Although there are seven such statues across Singapore, the most famous one is located at Merlion Park, in front of the Fullerton Hotel and overlooking Marina Bay.
