Relaxing after the long business class flight to Singapore
Snag Last Minute Flights to Visit Singapore Botanic Garden
It’s no surprise that Singapore holds up to its nickname, the Garden City, with a world-class botanic garden. A stroll through the botanic gardens after a long business class flight or a few days in the frenetic city is rejuvenating. The tropical garden is a UNESCO World Heritage Site dating back to 1859. The gardens cover an impressive 202 acres, featuring a lush native rainforest that predates the botanic garden. It also includes ginger, trellis, bonsai and palm gardens and several lakes. You’ll also find many waterfalls, peaceful tropical trails, statues and numerous other compelling gardens. The botanic garden is best known, though, for its national orchid garden. The orchid garden leads the world in orchid research and hybrid cultivation, boasting more than 1,000 orchid species and 2,000 hybrids.
The Singapore Flyer Experience Offers a First Class Seat to Singapore Views
You may have enjoyed a nice view of Singapore from your plane’s business class seat, but Singapore Flyer’s views are even better. Like the London Eye, the Singapore Flyer is an enormous Ferris Wheel with air-conditioned rider capsules. It reaches 541 feet into the sky, transporting 28 large, enclosed viewing pods around the circumference. The ride takes less than an hour but gives you excellent views of Collyer Quay, the Helix Bridge and the Singapore River. You’ll also see Raffles Hotel, the Marina Sands Resort and countless other Singapore landmarks. For a special treat, you can enjoy a romantic dinner in the rider capsules. On the ground, visitors enjoy a man-made rainforest, cafes and shops.
Experience Singapore, From Ultra Modern Business Class Flights to Rural Pulau Ubin
While Singapore’s bustling pace is exhilarating, nearby Pulau Ubin’s tranquil setting is a nice respite. Often called Singapore’s “last village” for its rural, untouched atmosphere, the island is awash in nature. On the north side of the island are the renowned Chek Jawa wetlands. Here, you can explore countless ecosystems, from a coastal hill forest to coral rubble fields. Your time on Pulau Ubin can also be spent on delightful physical activities. Join fascinating guided walks, wander or bike the trails yourself or kayak among the mangroves. Even if you’re not all that interested in experiencing nature, go to Pulau Ubin anyway. It’s a glimpse into what Singapore was like before skyscrapers, business class flights and large-scale attractions took hold.
Sentosa Island is the Luxury Equivalent of First Class Seats
Sentosa Island is almost the complete opposite of rural Pulau Ubin. This island is filled with fun entertainment, including Universal Studios and thrilling cable car rides. You’ll delight in the 100,000 marine animals at S.E.A. Aquarium. You’ll interact with dolphins at Dolphin Island and relish a K-Popo 4D hologram concert at K-Live. You’ll splash through high-speed water slides at Adventure Cove Waterpark and see the 121-foot-tall Merlion. Your whole family will revel in the jungle exploration found at Nature Discovery. You can also enjoy spectacular fire, water and light shows at Lake of Dreams or the famed Crane Dance multimedia extravaganza. You can even try to win back the cost of your business class ticket in the glitzy island casino.
