There are lots of different things to see and do in Singapore. So after my trip there I decided to create a short list of things you should definitely see if you are visiting Singapore.
1. Sentosa Island
Sentosa is a popular island resort in Singapore, visited by twenty million people a year. Attractions include a 2 km long sheltered beach, Fort Siloso, two golf courses, the Merlion, 14 hotels, and the Resorts World Sentosa, featuring the theme park Universal Studios Singapore.
There are so many things to do on the island that you better reserve a whole day for your visit there. If you visit the island, make sure you see the Wings of Time show! It is a spectacular night show set outdoors against the backdrop of an open sea that will leave you speechless.
2. Orchard Road
Orchard Road, a 2.2 kilometre-long boulevard, is the retail and entertainment hub of Singapore. It is certainly the best place for shopping in the city!
3. Singapore Botanic Gardens
The Singapore Botanic Gardens is a 156-year-old tropical garden located at the fringe of the Singapore’s main shopping belt. It is one of three gardens, and the only tropical garden, to be honored as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Botanic Gardens has been ranked Asia’s top park attraction since 2013. The gardens are truly amazing, but the most fascinating one is certainly the orchid garden.
4. Singapore Zoo
The Singapore Zoo, formerly known as the Singapore Zoological Gardens and commonly known locally as the Mandai Zoo, occupies 28 hectares. There are about 315 species of animal in the zoo, of which some 16 percent are considered to be threatened species. The zoo is built as a park rather than as animals in cages, which makes it so nice to visit. Within the most interesting pecies you can see there are the white tiger, panda, koala bear and pink flamingo.
5. Marina Bay Sands Sky Bar
Marina Bay Sands is an integrated resort fronting Marina Bay in Singapore. Developed by Las Vegas Sands, it is billed as the world’s most expensive standalone casino property at $8 billion, including the land cost. The hotel is famous for few different reasons and the Sky bar is one of them.
The view from the bar is absolutely amazing! If you are visiting Singapore this is the view you cannot miss!
6. Merlion Park
Merlion Park, a landmark of Singapore, is a major tourist attraction at One Fullerton, Singapore, near the Central Business District. Two structures of the Merlion are located at the park. The original merlion structure measures 8.6 metres tall, whilst a Merlion cub located near the original statue measures 2 metres tall.
