There’s no denying who’s the star of the show at Equinox – the breathtaking views of Singapore through the floor-to-ceiling windows will impress even the most jaded of tourists. Make a beeline for the Sunday Brunch buffet, which features fresh seafood and hearty roasts (and, for an additional fee, free-flowing Moët & Chandon Impérial). Children under six dine for free and there’s live entertainment and activities (think magic shows and balloon sculpting) on offer. Hear that noise? It’s the sound of parents across the world booking a reservation, stat. A versatile venue, it also makes for a great place during the week for a business lunch or dinner to impress.
The City Hall area is where culture, entertainment, business and shopping meet. Set in the heart of the Civic District, it teems with national and cultural institutions noted for their architecture and heritage. Spend a leisurely day museum hopping (from the nation’s oldest, the National Museum of Singapore, to the newest, National Gallery Singapore, which opens late 2015); and gazing at gazetted monuments such as Chijmes and Saint Andrew’s Cathedral.
