There’s no better way to get a sense of a city than to get a bird’s eye view. Sightsee while you sample the cultural delights of London, Mumbai, Singapore and Bali using our list of awesome rooftop bars. Don’t worry, we’ve also compiled a list of hip hotels close by.

Sands Skypark, Singapore

The cloud-tickling Sands Skypark rooftop bar is famous for its unusual shape and the infinity pool that perches out daringly over 57 storeys. It’s also home to Flight, a drinks lounge where high-flying guests can quaff cocktails, premium spirits and Champagne. The equally impressive Sky on 57 restaurant serves taster plates with an Asian influence: think Duck Confit Quesadillas and Oriental Sliders with Tangerine Sauce. With the best view over the Singapore skyline, it’s the ideal location to get your trip off the ground.

Signature Sip: The Singapore Sling
You can’t leave this city-state without sampling one of Singapore’s iconic Slings. Flight Bar and Lounge serves up the sublime concoction of cherry liqueur, Cointreau, DOM Bénédictine, Grenadine, pineapple juice, fresh lime and Angostura bitters to sip on while star gazing.
