Whether you’re a first-time traveller or a frequent tourist in Singapore, you will never run out of things to do or places to discover in this island city-state.
You can do just about anything in this country which boasts both rural and urban attractions. Also, because of how compact it is, it’s possible to go from one place to another without spending half of the day on the road.
If you’re planning to visit Singapore or want to travel there again, below are some unique and fun things to do on your trip:
Explore Singapore’s vibrant culinary spots
If you’re looking for signature local dishes or even French cuisine, it won’t be difficult to find the best European restaurants in Singapore. The country is packed with various culinary choices that will satisfy any traveller’s tastes and cater to any budget. The never-ending food choices rooted in its multi-cultural influences have made Singapore South East Asia’s food paradise.
Get a glimpse of China and India
You don’t have to book another flight to experience other cultures. Chinatown and Little India are just around the corner should you wish to see more of Singapore’s cultural diversity.
Chinatown is one of the largest ethnic enclaves in the country. It is divided into five districts, and the neighbourhood is constantly busy with tourists flocking the shops, stalls, and restaurants. You can also check out their temples and other architectural masterpieces.
Little India is embellished with splashes of colours and authenticity. Located outside the mainland, it’s the perfect location when you want to escape the busy city. You can find various items from colourful fabrics to spices and see places of worship and walk along its vibrant neighbourhood.
Although Singapore is relatively small compared to other Asian countries, it never lacks in its natural beauty. For a city that’s filled with skyscrapers and big establishments, you’ll see parks almost everywhere you go.
The Singapore Botanic Gardens is the go-to place in the middle of the city. The city garden is popular for its flowers, botanical library, and vast vegetation. It’s known as the “City in the Garden” and is considered a UNESCO World Heritage site.
But if you’re looking for a real tropical forest, there’s the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, which is Singapore’s first ASEAN Heritage Park. It is home to over 150 exotic migratory birds and other wildlife that can be spotted during guided walks.
Indulge in Singapore’s finest places
Get a full view of the whole city on top of Singapore’s world-famous rooftop pool that sits on one of the most expensive hotels in the world, the Marina Bay Sands Resort.
Just along the resort are the famed Gardens by the Bay consisting of 18 “supertrees.” These human-made trees are made from frames and covered with orchids, ferns and other plants. Stop by at night and see how the trees light up and come alive.
So, when it comes to Singapore, it’s true what they say that “big things come in small packages.”
