Singapore has added another feather in its cap as two of its establishments have made it onto the prestigious TIME Magazine’s first annual World’s Greatest Places list.
These two Singapore establishments are Atlas Bar and the COO Boutique Hostel. The list also boasts of having Golden Bridge in Vietnam and Warner Bros World in Abu Dhabi.
TIME received nominations for popular tourist spots like museums, bars and hotels before evaluating the places based on factors like quality, originality, innovation, sustainability and influence. The list features new and newly relevant travel destinations across the globe that are "worth experiencing".
The list sorted the places into three categories; places to visit, to stay at, and to eat and drink.
Atlas Bar has been chosen in the places to eat and drink category. It has a pride of place as it celebrates the 1920s rich culinary and beverage traditions.
TIME mentioned that Atlas Bar contains one of the world’s largest gin collections.
Another Singapore attraction COO Boutique Hostel was chosen in the list of places to stay at.
TIME mentioned that people can stay in the hostel for as little as USD20 (SGD27) a night while experiencing the spirit of an ‘old-fashioned backpackers’ community.
