Ready for INTA 2023 in Singapore?
by Jocelyn Toh
We are excited that the INTA Annual Meeting is coming to Singapore next May and getting to know the city where INTA will be held is one of the keys to a successful conference. Members from our office in Singapore have provided recommendations that may go some way to make your conference successful, fun, and yummy. For this week’s post, we would like to share Jocelyn Toh’s five best places to visit in Singapore:
❇️ Marina Bay Sands
MBS, where the INTA conference will be held, is the location of Singapore’s most iconic hotel for the world’s largest rooftop Infinity Pool, award-winning dining, and a wide range of shopping and entertainment. Within the vicinity of MBS, do drop by the ArtScience Museum for interesting exhibits and installations which unique architecture is reminiscent of a lotus flower.
❇️ Gardens by the Bay
Gardens by the Bay is a huge, colourful, futuristic-like park in the bay area of Singapore across from MBS. Among the standout features are the famous Supertree structures. These offer an impressive skywalk over the gardens, with oversized seashell-shaped greenhouses that recreate chilly mountain climates.
❇️ Jewel Changi Airport
Colloquially known simply as “Jewel”, is one of the latest tourist attractions in Singapore with plenty of F&B and shopping options. It is a nature-themed entertainment and retail complex surrounded by and linked to Changi Airport’s passenger terminals. Jewel’s centrepiece is the world’s tallest indoor waterfall, the Rain Vortex, that is surrounded by a terraced forest setting. Jewel is filled. This is an option to consider before catching your flight back home. You may take a virtual tour of Jewel here: https://youtu.be/5Zn3RVBtwrU
❇️ River Wonders – Mandai Wildlife Reserve
Formerly known as “River Safari”, River Wonders is Asia’s first and only river-themed wildlife park. You may visit Singapore’s first giant panda cub, Le Le, which was born last year.
The Chinese name for Chinatown directly translates to the words ‘ox’, ‘cart’ and ‘water’. This refers to the bullock carts that brought much of the water supply to this district in the 19th century. Once an enclave for Singapore’s Chinese immigrant population, today’s Chinatown is much-beloved for its blend of old and new, with historic temples and traditional medicinal halls sitting alongside bold new bars and trendy lifestyle shops.
