Singapore is a highly developed and westernised city-state in Southeast Asia and amongst the world’s leading economic centres in the banking and shipping industry. This cosmopolitan city also offers some incredible tropical parks, beautiful beaches, delicious and inexpensive food, huge shopping events, fun theme parks, and a world-class zoo. Because of its tropical climate, Singapore experiences high humidity levels, year-round rain, and average temperatures of 26 – 30 degrees Celsius. Any time of the year is a good time to visit Singapore, but you are likely to find better deals on travel and accommodation during July – August. From November – June, a large number of winter leisure travellers as well as festivals such as the Chinese New Year and Great Singapore Sale tend to drive prices upwards.

Things to do and places of interest in Singapore

It is difficult to experience the diverse offerings of Singapore in a short stay; hence you will need to pick a few activities and attractions based on your interests and the length of your stay. Here are a few things you must-see and must-do when in Singapore:

  • Explore the Singapore Zoo with over 2,800 animals representing more than 300 species of mammals, birds and reptiles. Plan to stay back for the Night Safari where you can view some 1,000 animals in their natural night-time habitat.
  • Visit Jurong Bird Park, the largest bird park in the Asia-Pacific Region with more than 5,000 birds across 400 species. Here you can also experience the Waterfall Aviary and the world’s largest 9-storey high Lory flight aviary.
  • Stop over at the Merlion Park and take pictures with the 8-metre tall Merlion Statue. Its half-lion and half-fish structure represents the history behind Singapore’s name.
  • Go for a stroll at the Singapore Botanic Gardens, a 158-year old, tropical garden (named a UNESCO World Heritage Site). The garden opens as early as 5 am and includes a spectacular collection of heritage trees as well as the National Orchid Garden.
  • Another horticultural heaven is the Gardens By the Bay, a 101 hectares of lush green vegetation and flowers in Downtown Singapore which includes attractions such as the Cloud Forest, Flower Dome and the SuperTree Grove.
  • Learn more about the history and culture of Singapore at the Changi Museum, Asian Civilisations Museum, Peranakan Museum or National Museum of Singapore.
  • Head to Marina Bay to experience a taste of luxury at the Marina Bay Sands resort and marvel at the 360-degree vistas from its Observation Deck. Enjoy a meal and classic cocktail at one of its celebrity restaurants such as Sky on 57, Spago or Cé La Vi Restaurant and SkyBar.
  • Spend an evening at Clark Quay which offers a multitude of bars, restaurants, nightclubs and boutique shops on a lively and picturesque waterfront.
  • If you can carve out at least half a day in your itinerary, you should definitely visit Sentosa Island for its various attractions such as Underwater World, Dolphin Lagoon, Butterfly Park & Insect Kingdom, Palawan Beach, and Songs of the Sea (a laser-musical show).
  • A visit to the Universal Studios Singapore amusement park with several themed rides and shows related to hit movies, is another major attraction which you can explore while in Singapore.

Tips and tricks for visiting Singapore

Affordable Meals

Several inexpensive and delicious food options are available at Little India, Chinatown or at the hawker stalls throughout the city. Smith Street is also an economical option to sample local snacks.

Fines

Singapore is indeed a ‘fine’ city (pun intended)! Chewing gum, littering, spitting, smoking in prohibited areas, jaywalking, not flushing toilets, connecting to someone else’s unprotected Wi-Fi, same-sex relations, are just some of the many things that are illegal and can attract huge fines.

Feast your Eyes

Watch the Garden Rhapsody light and sound show at the SuperTree Grove in Gardens by the Bay and the Wander Full Light and Water show (singing fountains and projections on their splashes) at the Marina Bay Sands. Both the shows are an absolute visual treat and are held twice daily, free of cost. All you need to do is reach in time and find the coolest spot to watch the spectacle as it unfolds.

Shop till you drop

Singapore is a shopper’s paradise and the best way to experience it is by visiting Orchard Road, a lively 1-kilometre stretch which has an abundance of music stores, fashion boutiques, department stores and electronic items.

Free Walking Tours

Companies such as Singapore Footprints offer free walking tours around the city and are a great way to explore the culture, history and architecture of Singapore.
