Rich in heritage with a multitude of cultures and nationalities, the vibrant city of Singapore offers a refined taste of Asia and is just waiting to be explored. There are a multitude of things to see and do, with options available to suit every nature lover, culture vulture or food fanatic. There's not only an abundance of top attractions within the city's main areas - from Sentosa, the Night Safari and fascinating museums to Chinatown and Little India; but also hundreds of hidden gems to discover off the beaten track. Known for being a city in a garden, Singapore also boasts a lot of green space, from the Botanic Gardens (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), Singapore Zoo, Gardens by the Bay and Jurong Bird Park to preserved rainforests, nature reserves, parks and hiking trails. For an alternative nature experience, take a bumboat back in time to off-shore island Pulau Ubin, one of the two remaining kampongs (rural village) in Singapore.
For those seeking retail therapy a Singapore holiday won't disappoint. Orchard Road is the prime shopping district, a mile long street filled with high street names, high-end luxury labels and everything in between. Alternatively, browse the shops of Chinatown and Little India, visit the historical Arab Quarter - particularly Haji Lane, or try out the city's numerous shopping malls and fascinating markets. With an excellent public transport network of buses, taxis and efficient MRT underground system, you'll have no problem navigating around the city – although it's also very easy to get around on foot.
Singapore is one of Asia's best foodie destinations and every taste and budget is catered for, from unpretentious and affordable local street fare to culinary gems created by Michelin-starred chefs. An ideal gateway to Asia's varied destinations, a Singapore holiday offers an opulent taste of the Far East.
Wherever you venture in the world there really is no holiday like a Borneo holiday. From mountains and rainforests, soft adventures and wildlife safaris to Iban tribes and the beloved orang-utan, there really is something for everyone. When you have had your fill of nature and culture, just sit back and relax on a beautiful palm fringed beach.
Straddling the equator and dominated by luxuriant rainforest, Borneo is a unique destination that provides a visual feast at every turn. It's the third largest island in the world with its territory shared by Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei. The Malaysian portion is an exotic paradise comprised of two states, Sabah and Sarawak, boasting extraordinary landscapes, cultural delights, astonishing wildlife and simply heavenly beaches.
Sabah may be the smaller of the two states but is blessed with a remarkable wealth of natural riches to explore. One of its greatest attractions is Mount Kinabalu National Park, a significant natural environment dominated by south east Asia's tallest peak, Mount Kinabalu. The abundant flora and fauna are worth the visit alone, but for those who like a challenge, joining an escorted tour to the summit of majestic Mount Kinabalu will live long in the memory.
The historic town of Sandakan is the gateway to Sabah's fascinating wildlife. Take a journey along the Kinabatangan River for the chance to see proboscis monkeys, macaques, monitor lizards, hornbills and, if you're lucky, pygmy elephants. At Sepilok Orang-Utan Rehabilitation Centre observe these endearing creatures as they are prepared for a life back in the wild, while at Turtle Islands Park witness scores of Green and Hawksbill Turtles crawl over the sands to lay their eggs.
In Sarawak wild encounters of a different kind await you. Venture deep into Borneo's interior to stay in a traditional longhouse with the Iban tribe, once renowned as head hunters! Witness tribespeople practicing ancient crafts and enjoy traditional dances, blowpipe demonstrations and training of fighting cocks. Also not to be missed are the Mulu Caves, said to be the largest in the world and home to weird and wonderful rock formations along with thousands of bats.
Once you've had your fill of experiences and adventures, Borneo's beaches are a simply heavenly place to relax and reflect on the wonderful treasures of this mystical island, so let Premier Holidays create the perfect Borneo holiday for you…
