Gay Travel and Tours to Singapore
Close your eyes, Dorothy, and think of Singapore....See this tiny island nation up close and personal with your own private gay guide, la. You can see most of the major sights in a day. However, Singapore Botanical Garden is so large and has so many things on display that it is almost worth a day in itself. Add even more time if you want a mini-escape to the attractive beach at Sentosa.
What do you imagine in this island Oz? A sterile, boring city run by an autocratic and conservative government that seems to hate fun? We used to think so too, but we were wrong, lah.
Singapore is almost electrifying in its great diversity. This tiny island nation with a population about the size of Bangkok is a cultural crossroads with some of Asia's most unique architecture, dining, hotels, shopping and even (believe it or not) nocturnal diversions. Singapore is mostly open space and has hundreds of public parks and wilderness areas. Its zoo and botanical gardens are among the best in the world, lah.
Planning Your Holiday
Pack your bags. Singapore is so ready for LGBTQ tourists. This major transportation hub is a great place to stop over on your way to somewhere else, although you will wish you had stayed longer. You need a minimum of two nights there--three if you are arriving from a long flight and need to catch up to the time change. With our experience and inside knowledge, our attention to all of the details, and Singapore's best local guides, you are sure to have a much more interesting experience than if you book a hotel in Singapore and try to figure out the rest yourself.
Convenient Modular Program
Our two-night stopover is perfect for first-time visitors or anyone who plans to return to enjoy more of Singapore's attractions. In addition to a LGBTQ-friendly hotel and airport transportation, you get one of Purple Dragon's legendary local guides for a day.
Although we have plenty of suggestions about what to do and see, there is no set itinerary. You and your guide will discuss your interests at the beginning of the day and he will design the day just for you. You can add extra nights and extra sightseeing if you like.
Optional Side Trips
Have more time and want to enjoy more of Singapore? You have plenty of options. For example you can simply add an extra day with your guide to continue to explore and enjoy without a set itinerary.
Gay Life in Singapore
Conservative by law, Singaporeans are colorful by nature! Men holding hands on the street might get looks of disapproval. (It is perfectly fine for real girls!) But that can't stop all the roar of the island's purple lions! In Southeast Asia,Singapore's gay scene competes with Bangkok's. Most venues stay open until very late, and some are open 24/7. Local queers like to hang out in Chinatown area during weekends, so the best clubbing is on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.
Visas are not required for citizens of most western countries. In some cases visas are issued on arrival. You can find more information on our Visas page. We will give you plenty of help to prepare for your adventure, including detailed "Before You Go" information.
Tropical Singapore is practically on the Equator. You can enjoy the little beaches of Singapore all year 'round, so be sure to pack your bikini, lah.
