    Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Botanic Gardens (free) plus the Orchid Gardens which had an entry fee 13 SG$(?). Pleased to find that over 60s entered for 3 SG$. Fabulous display of orchids arranged through gardens and orchid houses.

    What a beautiful Zoo, without a doubt one of the best in the world. Amazing selection of animal species in well designed habitats.

    Well worth a visit if you are in Singapore.

    Totally a wonderful experience and full of beautiful plants and flowers structured around a lovely theme. We spent about 3 hours there as we went slow and saw everything.

    Marina Bay in Singapore is a great place to explore. From historical sites to lush greenery and exquisite dining, this destination has it all! Whether you're looking for a romantic getaway or a fun family outing, Marina Bay is the place to be. The breathtaking views of the skyline and the vibrant atmosphere make this a must-see destination.

    Enjoyed the bus trip Keith was knowledgeable. The trip could have been more interesting if not for the light drizzle.

    A great place to visit in the evening. Go to the Hawkers Market for local food then walk it off by checking out all the shops that are ablaze with lights. Some great bargains to be had. Access is easy via the MRT. Get off at Chinatown MRT Station.

    My husband and I took a tour of the central business district in Singapore. At the end of the tour, we ended up in Merlion Park with the iconic statue of the Merlion, a mythical half-lion, half fish. The Merlion’s fish-half symbolizes Singapore’s origins as a fishing village, known as Temasek. The head of the statue represents the city’s original name of Singapura. The statue currently stands at 8.6 meters tall in front of the Fullerton Hotel and overlooks Marina Bay, it’s home since 2002.
    As tourists, we naturally had to take photos in front of the Merlion statue. It’s a lot bigger than you’d think. There is a mini one in the park that you can also take photos of. The park is free to everyone and it is a busy hubbub of activity during the late afternoon and evening. We took a bus to and from the business district that day and found the park easily accessible.

    Just right around the corner, about a 5-minute walk from my hotel so wanted to check it out. Loved the exterior architecture and inside is also beautiful. Unfortunately the day I went they were preparing for an event inside so we couldn’t go in the main part on the ground level. There are a couple different levels to explore so be sure to take the elevator up to see. Although the complex is open many hours, the relics inside are much more limited as far as viewing so check the hours first. Be sure to wear appropriate attire (eg: cover up) when entering…and no hats!

    If you visit during night time, it gives more pleasure in watching all the colorful bridges, buildings and stores. Waterfront promenade is an amazing trip, looking at the lights reflected in a river. Watching many happy faces walking here and there, laughing, smiling, talking or running.

    Part of Gardens by the Bay complex and is a chargeable attraction. When we visited the seasonal flower display was of chrysanthemums, which were very pretty but we would have preferred something like orchids, as being British we see plenty of chrysanthemums. But the rest of the dome was very interesting and included some huge trees which all looked very healthy.

    Modern display of artifacts and photographs showing birth and growth of this settlement into a thriving modern city. Due attention paid to rivalry of European powers and history of British Empire establishing a colony there. Glimpses of colonial enlightenment and local awareness of oppression. Graphic history of Japanese invasion and takeover in WW 2 and life there under Japanese rule. Progress towards independence, union with Malaysia, and eventual secession to complete independence. Everything clearly explained.
