Singapore retains the allure of the Orient and the tastes of the East in a glittering setting of skyscrapers and polished pavements.
Here you will be able to wine and dine in the finest Asia has to offer and pamper yourself in the region’s premier shopping destination before embarking on a cruise for a tropical getaway in the idyllic Tioman islands. Surrounding the main island of Tioman are dozens of small, beautiful islands such as Aur, Pemanggil, Sibu, Tinggi, Besar and Dayang.
Each island is special in its own way, offering activities ranging from 4-wheel drive excursions to mangrove treks and excellent diving.
Tioman itself, the paradise setting of the 1958 film “Bali Hai”, is best known for its coral reefs and magnificent geography of steep hills, covered by thick virgin jungle, rising up to 3,500 feet.! each day typically includes swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, beach-combing, or diving for scuba enthusiasts. On longer passages lie back, sunbathe and enjoy the amazing scenery. The best weather for cruising this area is between March and September.
