Little India is the cultural heart of Singapore. From temples to gift shops, from restaurants to Bars, one will find almost everything up here. This place is mostly very crowded. Walking through the alleys and trying out the street food is what you should be looking forward to if you're here. Good place to spend an hour or two.
The iconic location of Singapore. Anyone and almost everyone who visits Singapore is likely to take a picture keeping the MBS Building, Singapore Flyer or the Esplanade in the background. Either you go there during the day or the night, you will always find things to please your eyes. I would recommend to visit this place both on days and in the night.
Arab Street is close to the Sultan Mosque of Singapore which is pretty famous. Arab street is a place to wander if you're into Arabic Food and Persian/Arabic style of clothing and cloths. You can also buy good carpets at a reasonable price up here. Make sure you try the street food from this place.
Vivo City is a famous shopping mall in Singapore located near the Harbourfront MRT Station. Vivo city shopping complex comprises of world renowned brand shops and also includes good food chains like Food Republic. Loved the chicken at Food Republic. It is also known as the gateway to the Sentosa islands for those who wish to take the monorail service to Sentosa.
One of the hidden jem in Singapore. Located right next to the Chinese Garden MRT Station, it is a nice place for people who wish to spend some good time with the nature and also to take care of individual health. There are walking and running trails on which the vistor can run or walk. People from all ages come here. There are two adjuscent gardens and are respectively called Chinese Gardens and the Japanese Gardens. The Chinese Garden has a tall tower which is built in a Chinese Architectural form and the Gardens are joined by a beautiful white bridge. Defnitely recommended when you're tired looking at all the sky high buildings.
Singapore has many things to offer to the tourists for free. Probably the light show is best of its kind. The light show takes place at 9 PM in the evening. The light show is best seen from the promenade stand on the western side of Marina Bay. Kids love it so it's worth it if you havee kids travelling with you. The show typically lasts for 10-15 minutes.
One of the unqiue neighbourhood in Singapore. The food stores have so much to offer that you will be more confused as you move forward. Buildings and structures follows the chinese architectural designs like any other china town in any other country. Good place to buy souveniers and chinese antic. The atmosphere is always so vibrant and bustling.
If there is one place that you're going to visit in Singapore, there are very good chances that it will be the merlion park. The Merlion Park hosts the iconic Merlion Statue with the background of Marina Bay Sands Skypark building. People mostly come here to take a picture and to keep a memory of Singapore. The Merlion is half lion and half fish. It is known to be the keeper of Singapore's wealth.
Was and will always be on the top of my list when it comes to Singapore. The rooftop provides a brilliant view of the Marina and the places nearby. In the afternoon the structure is observed in shape and in the evening the shape is marked by the lights on the buildings. You get a great upper view of the Gardens by the bay and of the other iconic structures around the Marina. Costs S$ 23 to get up and you can stay as long as you want. The MBS Skypark is a must go.
The largest Theatre compund in Singapore. It is called the Esplanade and is shaped based on a fruit called Durian. This is another iconic building in Singapore and hosts all the largest events of the country including regular theatrical shows and performances.
The Helix bridge is one of the most popular bridges in Singapore. This is basically a waslking bridge that connects the West side of Marina Bay with the Promenade MRT Station road. The bridge is designed following the structure of human DNA. Turns out ot be anice place to walk onto in the evening when all the lights are turned on.
Marina Bay City Gallery is basically a live map of the Marina Bay area. If you do not have any idea on what places to look for in Marina Bay, Spend a good ten minutes here and you'll not only get the idea what to see but you will also know how do those structures contribute to the ever changing skyline of the Marina Bay. You can also find guide maps for free in here. The staffs are very lovely and helpful.
The ArtScinece museum hinds beneath another iconic structure of Singapore. The large Lotus shaped building is the ArtScience Museum itself. Below the lotus there are 4-5 levels on which they have organized a brilliant Museum. There is a dinosaur show which describes the history of dinosaurs and their different kinds till they were extinct. Nice place to send a couple of hours. Kids love it.
A brilliant, magnificent and mind blowing structure. I have never seen anything like this ever in my life. The Gardens are maintained nicely and is an amazing place to go. From flowers to herbs, from fruits to decoratives; the garden has them all. The garden is open 24/7 so you can get in any time you want. But according to my personal observation I would say its best to get here early in the morniing.
Singapore Flyer is basically a Merry-Go-round with a great height. The best time to get in is around the evening when the daylight goes deem and then all the lights are turned on. You get to see a panaromic view of Marina Square from the Cabins. Kids absolutely love it and this is another must see in Singapore.
If you're on a budget and plan to stay Singapore for a week, this where I would recommend highly for the stay. The owners are backpackers themselves and thus they do understand the needs of a basic stay from the perspective of a budget traveler. The owners are very nice and caring. It is located just about in 1 5 minutes walking distance from Boon Keng MRT Station and is at a 10 minutes walking distance from Ferrar Park MRT park.
Singapore Botanic Gardens is a collection of 4-5 different gardens. It is a must see in Singapore for those who love plants and natural habitat. It also has the best Orchid Garden within its complex which is a must see too.
National Orchid Garden is part of the Singapore Botanical Gardens. I was amazed to see the amonut of collection which they have. It has some very rare breed of cactuses which I have never seen in my lifetime. A must for Orchid lovers.
I will quote this as one of the best zoo's in Asia. The Animals and the specieses are not captured in a box and they are kept in a quite open and large spaces keeping the natural habitat in mind; expect for the killer animals ofcourse. The residents are kept well and maintained nicely. The residents seems much jolly and happy than any other zoo that I have visited.
This is a lovely ride to the Sentosa islands from the Harborfront. Although considered expensive I think it is well worth it. Recently they have designed it with the Marvel characters and thus iti s the first of its kind. You also get a great view of the harbour beneath.
Marina Bay Sands Casino is the finest casino in Asia. It portrays a great environment and small/medium/large bidders can play as well. Even if you're not into gambling it is still worth a visit to this place. Loved the atmosphere.
A fun place to spend half a day. Doesn't matter how old you are, you'll always find something to get your interest in here. The science city comprises of fun games and activities to make the toughest of the sciences concept come easy and alive in front of our eyes. I have seen kids enjoying the place very much. Definitely recommended if you have kids along.
Located into the heart of Little India. The Buddha Tooth Relic Temple is also a museum itself. If you get here early in the morning or in the evening, you can hear the monks enchanting whic is nice. Gives a great atmosphere for the visitors.
If you love nature and birds, this is a must visit for you and your family. You get to see so many different kind of birds here. The most amazing feeling is to feed them while they sit in your shoulder or hands. I loved the atmosphere in there. Must go if you have kids with you.
Sultan Mosque or Masjid Sultan is one of the largest Masjid in Singapore and is popular for its unqie architecture. The Masjid is build in middle eastern design and attracts a lot of visitors towards it. I found the night view of the Masjid lovely.
It is a nicee Hindu Temple with South Indian Style of architecture. Aside of being a temple a lot of hindu marriages takes place in the hall room inside the temple. It is a very colorful temple and depicts many God's and Kings of ancient Hinduism.
It is a specialty museum where most of the focus are towards informing the visitors about the era of history of Singapore. I found that this is mainly targetted towards the locals but if you're into history and want to know aboout Singapore in deeper level, you can spend an hour here. Although the location is quite far and is very close to the western egde, you could tag it up with the Scine Center and Bird Park.
The cloud forest is a part of the Gardens By The Bay. It is a specialty part and I must admit I have never seen anything like this in my life and neither could I think of anything of this nature. I simply loved the dome and the displays. A must for nature and plant lovers.
The Jurong East Swimming Complex is such a nice place with much to offer fro a great value. I think it costed around S$5 in total for one person for unlimited entry to the park including rented tubes and towel. The complex is quite big and offers a lot for the money. Kids will definitely love it. There are ofcourse better places in terms of water parks in Singapore but this one is the most affordable and economic too.
The Universal Studios Singapore is a wonder in my eyes. For those who are not able to visit the actual one in the US will get a good taste of it in Singapore. It is located in the front of the Sentosa Islands. The Roller coaster ride and the wonderland part is amazing. Kids including teenagers are sure to love it.
South East Asian Aquarium is called SEA Aquarium in Short. This aquarium is the largest in South and South East Asia. There are plenty of sea species to be observed. I loved the Star Fishes, Jelly Fishes, The Sharks and the Dolphin of course. I coudn't be happier to spend a couple of hours here. A must see in Sentosa, Singapore.
Clarke Quay is the place for nightlife in Singapore. The best clubs and the bars are located in the Clarke Quay area. Some bars actually play pretty good music where as some area Karaoke bar. Definitely recommended. Apart from the nightlife, they also sell very good, tasty and authentic Malay food.
