    Lovely place to wander around for couple of hours and take in the different areas. If you are lucky like us we daw a few turtles and other wildlife.

    Has a souvenir shop and restaurant.

    To really appreciate Marina Bay try a hire bike ride clockwise around the pathways that hug the shoreline. So many sights to take in along the way and very few pedestrians to navigate around. The Marina Sands Bay Hotel, the Singapore Flyer Wheel, spectacular bridges, the National Stadium, Bay East Gardens, the Barrage and of course, Gardens by the Bay. You may also spot otters swimming close to shore and we also encountered a Pangolin Lizard. Then make sure you return in the evening for the Spectra Light Show for a completely different experience, where Merlion Park is a great vantage point if a little crowded.

    Must See in Singapore! The Supertree Grove itself is free of charge and you should definitely check it out. We came twice during the day and onceat night. Since we were there during Chinese New Year, there was special decoration there. Usually there are two "show times" during the evening. I honestly was a bit underwhelmed, we waited for over an hour and the show was only five minutes. Plus the trees were not really illuminated after the show, which we didn't understand. It it still worth going to the show, I just expected more.

    Impressive main road that is absolutely full of shops, shopping malls and eateries and bars. Some of the higher ends shops are here like Channel and Gucci but also shops like Nike and Adidas. Although everything is still top pricing

    Amazing temple. When we arrived they were actually doing a service which we felt privileged to see. The monks were lighting candles and doing a chant. There are some beautiful statues inside. You do NOT have to take your shoes off here, but they do require shoulders to be covered and you can borrow a shawl if needed

    Beautiful area which is crowned by the spectacular Merlion statue (half Lion, half Mermaid). Gets very busy here so go early if your want good photographs. A popular photo is taking the photo so that it looks like it's going into your partners hands

    The views, good by day and better by night, are awesome! Was here for a stroll with family and they just kept clicking! Plenty of options for shopping & dining.

    It is a not so hidden gem at Singapore airport everyone traveling to or through Changi should check out. We visited it before our flight to Bangkok - it's just a short walk or Skytrain ride from each of the terminals. There is lots of food options there and this giant waterfall. You can walk around the "rainforest" and enjoy the views.

    It is colourful and vibrant at night, especially during the festive season. Clarke Quay is a fantastic place to dine and or have a few drinks.

    Just the ticket after sitting on a plane for 13 hours. We caught the bus from the CBD to the stop adjacent to the Park at Venus Drive and the Trailhead for the walk, which is situated behind the car park. Plenty of information boards, including one about wild boars. We didn't encounter any, but there were plenty of monkeys, squirrels and wild cockerels, and we also spotted a giant centipede and a monitor lizard.

    The predominantly uphill hike to the suspension bridge should not be underestimated in the sultry heat, so take plenty of water. It is worth it for the experience of crossing the bouncy bridge and taking in the views out across the forest canopy. Note the route over the bridge and loop return is one way only and there are a series of steep steps to negotiate on the downward descent. Allow 2-3 hours for a round trip.

    There are a couple of rest huts en route, the main one being the Ranger Station, which has both toilet facilities and drinking water if needed. All in all, a quiet green oasis definitely worth exploring, but don't get caught photographing the water service station facility, otherwise you will be shot.

    My dad ended WWII in Changi. The museum is respectful and informative. Very well done. The staff are very friendly and helpful

    Spectacular shopping mall in the heart of Marina Bay Sands. Mostly high end shops. It is amazing to walk through, especially for the air conditioning. While we were there, they had huge dragon sculptures for Chinese New Year

    Hawker Center in Chinatown. Lots of options for food, cheaper than other Hawker Centers (e.g. Lau Pa Sat). There are public bathrooms and the MRT station is right next to it.

    less well known than the botanical garden but pleasant walking with historic interludes from various centuries and not so strenuous
