Why It's Worth It

A majestic ode to modernity, Singapore stuns the senses. From its iconic skyline—swaying toward the heavens beneath outsized infinity pools—to its cutting-edge cuisine and cocktail culture, its dazzling nightlife to its incomparably efficient transit systems, this is a city of the future. Yet, beyond the obvious Instagram outposts, Singapore holds a strong connection to its past, honoring its history by drawing from the eclectic cultures that combined to create it. Small in size, Singapore offers visitors an experience improbably vast. —Brad Japhe
