Tourist Places To Visit In Singapore
Arguably the most expensive city in the world, you can definitely see the sheen of luxury in Singapore. However, the country has much more to boast of than its luxurious hotels, shopping experiences and fine dining. Though we believe a little indulgence is worth all your money if you wish to spend. Singapore has a vibrant culture, helpful people and a rich cultural history. It also has many family friendly attractions and beautifully landscaped gardens making this a futuristic city. Read on for some amazing tourist places to visit in Singapore.
Gardens by the Bay
Singapore’s most beautiful man-made gardens, Gardens by the Bay, houses an exceptional variety of flora right from the tropical rainforest species to the arid deserts in its two conservatories, the Cloud Dome and the Forest Dome.
The daily light and sound show underneath the Giant Super Trees are not to be missed. Other gardens that you might want to visit include the Singapore Botanic Gardens, which houses some of Singapore’s ancient species of plants. The National Orchid Garden is also worth a visit if you are fond of flowers.
Singapore isn’t exactly known as a beach destination. However, if you’re craving for some sun and sand, the Siloso beach at Sentosa is the place to be. You can enjoy a game of volleyball or go kayaking or skim boarding here. A swim with the dolphins at the Underwater World is also a fun experience. Fort Siloso, the country’s only preserved fort is also on Sentosa Island. We recommend you do not miss the Wings of Time show that happens every evening. Also, go to the top of the Merlion here to see the view of the entire island.
Singapore houses the world’s second largest Ferris Wheel with a total height of 165 metres. It’s 28 air-conditioned glass observatories can accommodate a group of 25 people each. The half an hour duration of the flyer will offer to you not just a view of the cityscape, but a panorama which extends up to the islands of Malaysia and Indonesia. You will be able to see over 20 of the city’s attractions from the flyer, including but not limited to Raffles Place, Merlion Park, Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort, F1 Circuit, Gardens by the Bay and the Helix Bridge.
Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort
The Marina Bay Sands redefines luxury in Singapore. With a luxury hotel, the most sought after international brands, a mall with a canal running through it, some of Singapore’s best Michelin-starred restaurants, the Art Science Museum, the observation deck and the infinity pool on a ship on top of the hotel - this is an amalgamation of quite a few experiences.
The observation deck of the Skypark offers a panoramic view of the city’s impressive skyline. You can also view the Gardens by the Bay from the rooftop restaurant at the Skypark as you sip your Singapore Sling.
An iconic landmark in Singapore, Raffles Hotel has become THE place to stay in Singapore. Since its establishment in 1887, it has housed famous names like Rudyard Kipling, Somerset Maugham, and Ernest Hemingway among others. With its impeccable hospitality and top-notch services and amenities, the legendary hotel also gives light to the history of Singapore. It has 15 restaurants and bars of which we recommend the Long Bar, where the famous cocktail, Singapore Sling was invented.
The Quay area situated at the mouth of the Singapore River was the centre of commerce in the 19th century. However, it is still a happening place today attracting tourists with its busy nightlife, a myriad of restaurants, pushcart vendors, unique boutiques and thematic lounges. Clarke Quay will offer an eclectic blend of Asian and European influences. With river cruises available here, Clarke Quay is an ideal spot to relax in the evening after a tiring day of shopping in Orchard Road.
