Over the last few years, Singapore has risen to the top of our list of hottest global destinations. And it’s easy to see why with its ultramodern architecture, thriving shopping districts and lush rainforests. Here are the spots to visit when you’re in Singapore.
1) Gardens by the Bay
Gardens by the Bay is a green space in the heart of Singapore that spans an impressive 101 hectares. Situated right next to the Marina Reservoir, the park features three different waterfront gardens. These breathtakingly gorgeous spaces have won multiple awards. Take a break from the busy city and reconnect with the beauty and serenity of nature.
Singapore’s population is almost 74% Chinese, so it’s not surprising that it has a thriving Chinatown. Filled to the brim with authentic restaurants and exciting shops, Chinatown is a must-see. The Chinatown neighbourhood also contains many other attractions like Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, Red Dot Design Museum and Hong Lim Park.
3) Merlion Park
Merlion Park is a park dedicated to its iconic statue of a half-fish, half-lion creature whose mouth is a fountain. Located in the Central Business District, this fun and whimsical landmark attracts lots of tourists every year. The merlion, and its 9 meter tall monument, is seen as an unofficial mascot for Singapore.
4) Orchard Road
Orchard Road is a shopping and entertainment boulevard full of high class boutiques and classy restaurants. The streets in Singapore are immaculately clean and sparkling. You’ll get to experience many different cultures in the form of diverse eateries and shopping experiences. It’s often quite busy, but it’s well worth braving the crowds for this incomparable shopping paradise.
5) Singapore Zoo
Singapore Zoo, also known as Mandai Zoo, is a 69 acre wildlife experience. The zoo attracts close to 2 million international visitors every year with its grand displays and wide variety of animals. There are over 300 different species of animals, and lots of plant life as well. It’s a great, family-friendly way to spend an afternoon in the city.
6) Marina Bay Sands
Marina Bay Sands is a luxury hotel resort that houses a casino, a museum, several restaurants, an infinity pool, two theatres and more. If you’re willing to pay more for the luxury, this hotel will keep you well entertained and well fed. But even if you can’t afford to stay at the hotel, it’s definitely worth visiting and enjoying a lavish meal or an elaborate theatre show.
7) Bukit Merah
Bukit Merah is a laketown resort in the south of Singapore. It’s well loved by tourists for its beautiful waterfront, spiritual landmarks, and fascinating wildlife. Take a tour of Orangutan Island, get a fish pedicure or play around in the waterpark. Either way, you’re sure to enjoy a great time soaking up the sun
