Singapore city is known as one of the safest, cleanest, most efficient spaces in the world, making it a pleasure to visit on a superyacht charter. This wholesome reputation doesn’t mean that it lacks character, like a trip to Chinatown, the historic Raffles Hotel, or its warren of food stalls will prove. Singapore has a fascinating combination of Chinese, Malay, Indian and Western cultures, with over 39% of the population foreign nationals, and it maintains its international reputation by offering some of the finest restaurants, shops, bars, and experiences in the world. Its skyline is world-famous, with countless skyscrapers competing for the top position including Guoco Tower which reaches a staggering height of 290 meters.
This sovereign island state extends beyond the city itself, with some 62 surrounding islets in its waters. These offer something quite different, and with just a short cruise you will feel a thousand miles from the cosmopolitan streets of the city. Uninhabited islands shrouded in myth and legend have intriguing names such as Ghost Island, and Sisters’ Islands. Each offers something unique, from cultural insights to beach parties. Ghost Island is technically two islands, and at low tide, you can walk through the shallow water to reach the other side. Here you can enjoy excellent swimming, safe snorkeling, rewarding fishing. Marine life on this island includes bright and colorful coral reefs, sea turtles, and angelfish. After a day in the sun, enjoy an on deck sundowner, before returning to the city to enjoy the twinkling lights of Singapore’s supertrees and the best of the city’s nightlife.
There is a thriving gourmet food scene in Singapore. Although you will enjoy the five-star meals that your yacht’s chef will create for you, during your yacht charter you may wish to indulge in an evening ashore at one of the many Michelin starred restaurants in the city. For a beach day, head to Sentosa Cove, an island that boasts a number of clubs and bars on the waterfront to keep you entertained until the early hours of the morning.
Each year, the Singapore Yacht Show attracts the region’s largest yachts and showcases the area as an excellent starting point for any luxury yacht charter. A yacht charter in Singapore is a fantastic place to start a cruise to neighboring Indonesia and Malaysia.There are daily international flights into Singapore airport, which means that traveling there and using it as the base for your yacht charter is simple and efficient.
