A wonderful adventure awaits you
Where exactly is Hiroshima, you may ask? A historical city located in Japan's Honshu Island— it was largely destroyed in the Second World War by an atomic bomb. Ever since then, Hiroshima has picked itself up and modernized into the blossoming popular tourist destination that it is today.
In this article, we'll be introducing the different things to do in the upcoming spring and summer seasons in this beautiful area.
2. Shimanami Kaido
For cycling enthusiasts or those who want to get active during their visit to Hiroshima, the Shimanami Kaido Cycling Course—the route connecting between Onomichi and Shikoku region, is one of the must-do activities when visiting Hiroshima! Chosen by CNN as one of the 7 best bike routes in the world—the entire 70-km course has a dedicated cycling route, keeping cyclists away from the traffic and close to the beautiful scenery of the Seto Inland Sea. Choose to customize your route by either completing small sections at a time and returning to Onomichi on a boat or a bus, or go all out to finish the entire course.
With all this information in hand, you must be thinking: "How do I get to Hiroshima from Singapore?"
You’ll be glad to find out that the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, SilkAir, flies to Hiroshima three times a week on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays. During the period from now till 24 Feb 2019, SilkAir will be flying two times a week on Mondays and Thursdays only. Book your flight from $528.00* and learn more about Hiroshima.
