Although Singapore may be small in size, there is so much to see and do, and while there are a few public transportation options available, it is always fun to indulge a little, traveling around the island in style. Whether you drive around town in a one-of-a-kind Maserati, or explore the country’s many islands aboard a luxury yacht, this is your guide to getting around in Singapore.
VIP Cable Car
Singapore’s cable car network is mostly used to connect the mainland to the island of Sentosa, and offers some spectacular views along the way. Their VIP cabin is ideal for those who want an extra-special experience, as it features a Swarovski crystal studded glass floor, black leather upholstery and a custom-designed sound system. For visitors wanting to travel to Sentosa, or staying on the island but wanting to visit the city each day, this is a stylish way in which to do so, and, if you would like to prolong the journey, you can even enjoy a fine dining meal in your cabin.
Singapore boasts a number of different luxury car rental companies, each offering a range of everything from luxury saloons to convertibles to exotics. This is a great way to have the freedom to explore Singapore on your own terms, but the downside to this is having to deal with the city’s notorious traffic congestion. Nevertheless, there are several picturesque drives to be found around the island, from the idyllic scenery of Fairways Drive to the twisty bends of Mt. Faber.
There is no denying that traveling by helicopter is a picturesque mode of transport, and there are many different options when it comes to chartering one in Singapore. Not only will you be able to take in the Singapore skyline from above, but you will also have the added advantage of being able to travel to just about anywhere in the country in just a few minutes! For those who want to combine a helicopter charter with a day of sightseeing, there are many sightseeing tours available, which take you around and over some of the city’s most iconic landmarks.
Chartering a yacht is one of the best ways to explore Singapore’s many islands, and Marina at Keppel Bay is home to one of the finest fleets of luxury yachts in the country. Not only will you have your own professional crew, but you can plan your own itinerary and even enjoy a couple of gourmet meals on board. Singapore has a number of offshore islands that are worth visiting, such as Pulau Hantu and its coral reefs, St. John’s Island with its picturesque beaches, and Kusu Island with its famous Chinese temple.
Singapore loves luxury and style, and you are likely to see many luxury cars on the roads, as well as mega-yachts dotting the marina. While a helicopter and cable car may be more unconventional ways to get around the city, you will be guaranteed an unforgettable view that most other tourists are not able to experience.
