Singapore is brimming with energy and the spirit and enterprise of this former hub of the British Empire is positively infectious. Staying at the 5 star Swissotel makes life easy in every respect. One of the tallest hotels in South East Asia, it offers a mouthwatering choice of 16 restaurants and bars, and is located in the heart of the city amidst world class shopping and entertainment. The Orchard shopping district is one of the most popular venues for visitors. And should you tire of perusing the keenly priced merchandise, you can indulge in a little people watching. Singapore is a melting pot of Chinese, Malay, Indian and Arabic communities. Women with Chinese features drift by wearing a colourful array of sarongs and Arabic dress.Singaporean cuisine is an example of diversity and cultural diffusion too. Malay hawker stalls sell halal versions of traditional Tamil food. Chinese food vendors mix in Malay ingredients and cooking techniques.Glimpses of the pre-World War Two downtown settlement are still visible in the districts of Chinatown and Little India. And no visit to this historic microstate would be complete without sampling the timeless delights of the Raffles Hotel, still one of the world's great watering holes.Whether starting your cruising experience or completing it, two or three nights to explore independently in this vibrant city will make your trip even more memorable. 2 or 3 night stay at the deluxe 5 star Swissotel in Singapore (bed and breakfast)Walking distance to famous landmarks and cultural sitesTime at leisure for your own exploration of this fascinating cityAll transfers from airport/hotel and hotel/portPerfect for the more independently minded travellerSingapore pre-cruise hotel stayFor cruises starting 20th Mar 201116th or 17th March 2011 - 2 or 3 nights2 nights - £225pp based on two sharing(£375pp single occupancy)3 nights - £285pp based on two sharing (£515pp single occupancy)Singapore post-cruise hotel stayFor cruises ending 20th Mar 201120th March 2011 - 2 or 3 nights2 nights - £225pp based on two sharing(£375pp single occupancy)3 nights - £285pp based on two sharing (£515pp single occupancy)Merlion statue, SingaporeOrchid, SingaporeSingapore skylineImportant NotesThese programmes have been based on a minimum of 20 participants per programme.
