Planning a trip and looking for the best Airbnbs in Singapore!? Well, you’ve come to the right place, because I’ve scoured the site and compiled an awesome list of Singapore Airbnb’s for all types of budgets and travelers! 

Singapore is a truly underrated world destination, and one that many travelers are finally waking up to. Thankfully. The South-East Asian city (and country… and island) is the cleaner, more organized cousin of its vibrant neighbors Malaysia and Thailand. 

Tourists flock to Singapore for so many reasons. To marvel at the impressive architecture of world-class landmarks like the Marina Bay Sands or the historic Raffles hotel. To shop up a storm on the famous Orchard Road retail belt. To try authentic Singaporean cuisine at everything from street stalls to top local restaurants. To enjoy the lush greenery this city is globally renowned for. To hop between the city and beautiful Sentosa Island. Or to simply bask in the hot and humid tropical climate. 

Airbnbs in Singapore


I’ve been to Singapore (pictured above) several times, and I absolutely loved my experience there every time. It’s so unique, so clean and so green. It’s no wonder the city’s new tagline is “Passion made possible”. 

Whatever you are heading to Singapore for, you need a great base to lay your head at night. 

I’ve compiled a shortlist of the 20 best AirBNB’s in Singapore to make your vacation planning to “The Garden City” a piece of cake.
