If you ever get the chance to visit Singapore, there are some things you should make sure you don’t miss out on. This is why it is best to prepare a list of all the things you would like to do.
If you arrive to Singapore early in the morning and you are looking for something to do, think about the botanic garden. It is open from early morning to midnight. This might be the only place left in the city where you can see this much greenery.
In case you are into art, you should head it to the Ritz-Carlton (yes, a hotel). Although it might seem strange to visit a hotel to see art, keep in mind that the building is decorated with the finest pieces of contemporary art.
Chinatown Heritage Centre
The people who would like to know a little more about the history of Singapore should head to this location. Here they will find the Asian Civilizations Museum and the Peranakan Museum. You should make sure you get something from the gift shop for your friends.
Merlion and Civic District
It is almost a must to visit Merlion, take a shot in front of it and share it on social media. Nearby you will find the Civic District, where you will find another piece of Singapore’s history.
Dine like you live in Singapore
While there are a lot of options for dining in the city, if you are looking for the greatest variety, you should head it to Hawker Centre. This is an open air food complex where you can find dishes like chicken rice, fishball noodles, and char kway teow.
This is one of the most interesting places to visit while being in Singapore. Here you will find curry restaurants, sari shops, spice stores, traditional Indian trades, and hostels, not to mention the monuments and historical sites.
Singapore Flyer and Food Trial
The Singapore Flyer is a giant observatory that offers a view of the Marina Bay, Civic District, Esplanade, and the Gardens. The Food Trail is a food street with traditional food stalls and a wide variety of traditional dishes.
Haji Lane and Kampong Glam
Kampong Glam used to be the home of Malay Royalty and it represents a blend of old and new. Here you will find the Sultan Mosque. Nearby you can visit Haji Lane, the hippie region of Singapore with colorful graffiti and interesting shops.
Singapore River and Clarke Quay
If you would like to hit the town during the night, Clarke Quay is the place to go to. Here you will find restaurants, bars, and clubs. While it is a hot party scene, it can also be a romantic place if you take a boat down the river.
In case you like birds, you should go to Jurong Bird Park. Nocturnal animals can be seen at the Night Safari, and you can see everything else at the Zoo. If you would like to visit more than one part of the zoo, think about getting a package.
