Whether your travels are for work or play, Swissotel The Stamford has got you covered. For the former, the 6,500-square-metre Raffles City Convention Centre offers 27 fully-equipped meeting rooms. The hotel also has a dedicated team of convention specialists on-hand to organise your business events. Need some reprieve from all that hard work? Head to the 71st floor to New Asia Bar and take in the breathtaking view of the Singapore skyline at night. Being walking distance to dining enclave Chjimes (30 Victoria Street), and major shopping centres such as Raffles City Shopping Centre and the newly opened Capitol Building, means there’s no shortage of entertainment, dining and nightlife options.
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.
