Singapore: An Amazing Stop-Over Hub

If you’re thinking about traveling to South East Asia then Singapore has to be on your list of places to visit! The great thing about Singapore is its position, which is known as the ‘Crossroads of Asia’, as it combines all the fabulous Asian countries together.

As Singapore is situated between the South of Thailand and the North of Malaysia it makes it an easy destination to combine with your trip to these countries. You can also stop in Singapore on your way to Indonesia, Cambodia and Laos, or use it as a hub to combine all these places together. It even acts as a great stopover between Europe and Australasia, so the options really are endless.

The other reason it works so well is that Singapore is a city everyone will love, combining perfectly western luxuries with an eastern flare. With its excellent infrastructure it’s an easy city to explore and with its diverse culture, the modern architecture and the natural wonders why wouldn’t you make it a stop-over destination?
