A WORLD OF TRAVEL NEWS AND DISCOVERIES

NEW FLIGHT

It may have a reputation as one of the world’s priciest cities, but Singapore is about to become a lot more affordable for British travellers, thanks to the launch of a new route from low-cost carrier Norwegian. From late September, a one-way fight from Gatwick starts at only £180 (norwegian.com). On touchdown, there are plenty of ways to make your Singapore dollar go further, says Lonely Planet destination editor Dora Ball. ‘Some of Singapore’s most defining experiences are completely free: exploring the temples and markets of Chinatown and Little India, taking in the skyline from the forest walkway of the Southern Ridges, and enjoying the sound-and-light show in the Gardens by the Bay (pictured).’

Guests on Japan’s Shiki-shima enjoy elegant suites and meals devised by a Michelin-starred chef (three days from £3,500; jreast.co.jp/shiki-shima). Meanwhile, the Belmond Andean Explorer in Peru claims to be South America’s first luxury train service, offering passengers superlative views of Cuzco, LakeTiticaca and Arequipa from double en suite cabins and the open-air deck of its observation car (three days from £1,270; belmond.com).
