Singapore is surely one of the most exciting and vibrant cities to charter a luxury yacht in and around South East Asia. Known for its cultural diversity and exceptional cuisine, Singapore is now a superyacht hub with visitors from around the world. What’s more there has been huge infrastructure spending on marina and hotel developments catering particularity for superyachts, and this investment is expected to continue, with Singapore so well positioned to be the first world gateway to the exotic treasures of South East Asia. Over the last 10 years, the luxury Singapore yacht charter market has grown from almost nothing to become an important force in the region.
Singapore Island is surrounded by a wide scattering of islets providing the perfect destination for cruising vacations. This island in the sun is also home to prestigious events like the Formula One Singapore Grand Prix, the WTA Finals and the Singapore Rugby Sevens. Singapore also hosts the annual Singapore Yacht Show so make sure you have your camera ready to capture vessels of all shapes and sizes.
Known as a global financial centre with a multicultural population and a tropical climate, Singapore really is a superyacht charterer’s dream. One of the most popular attractions on the island is its cricket field which has been established since the 1830s. It’s on the Padang and has the City Hall with 18 Corinthian columns flanking it. Take a trip to Chinatown where you will see the beautiful red and gold Buddha Tooth Relic Temple or try the tempting local food.
Singaporeans just love eating so join them with authentic local dishes from a stall or dine in one of the Michelin star restaurants. Singapore is a melting pot of cultures starting off with the Chinese New Year in January. June sees the Hari Raya Puasa, a religious holiday, where you can visit the annual bazaar at Geylang. Join in Deepavali in October, this is a Hindu festival which celebrates the festival of lights.
