The next time you’re in Sydney, drop by for a Sling even if you don't plan to stay

You might do a double take when you first set your eyes upon The Fullerton Hotel Sydney. It shares many similarities with The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, chief among them being housed within a landmark general post office building, a legacy of our shared colonial past.

It’s the first overseas property of the historic hotel brand we know and love, and they’ve promised to deliver the same warmth, luxury and hospitality we’ve come to expect, while making sure to showcase both local and Singaporean cultures.

In a much-appreciated move, they have also avoided over-embellishing in order to preserve the building’s history. Meanwhile, free heritage tours for both guests and public help keep the stories alive.

In pictures, here’s what you can expect at The Fullerton Hotel Sydney.
