Things to do in  Singapore

Welcome to Singapore

With its space-age architecture, busy shopping malls, and skyscraper-lined waterfront, Singapore is one of Asia’s most modern cities, but there’s more to the city than its contemporary draws. Discover Singapore’s multi-cultural heritage in the Arab Quarter and Little India, stroll the illuminated waterfront of Marina Bay, tuck into tasty street food at the Chinatown night market, then escape the urban sprawl for the Botanic Gardens and the Gardens By the Bay. A short cable car ride away, Sentosa Island has something for the whole family, with theme parks, amusement rides, and plenty of beachfront entertainment.

Top 10 attractions in Singapore

#1

Singapore Flyer

star-4.51,209
Asia's most iconic architectural and engineering marvel, the Singapore Flyer towers 165 meters above Singapore, making it the world's largest observation wheel. (It's 30 meters higher than the famed London Eye.) During your 30-minute flight enjoy the views of the Singapore River, Marina Bay, Changi Airport, Sentosa Island and even parts of neighboring Malaysia and Indonesia.More
#2

Merlion Park

star-4.52,588
Merlion Park is not as much a park as it is a standing symbol for all of Singapore. Spread out over 2,500 square meters, or about 27,000 square feet, the park is perhaps most famously known for its centerpiece, a 2 meter tall, or seven foot, Merlion cub fountain at the center. Because of the great city view from the park, which extends out to the Marina Day Sands , the waterfront park has become a busy destination around clock, with access open 24 hours a day. The park is centrally located on One Fullerton near to the busy Central Business District. Drawing over a million visitors each year, the park’s Merlion cub was first unveiled to the public in 1972. A large public event was recently held for the 40th year anniversary of the occasion.More
#3

Singapore Zoo

star-4.52,029
Visit the world class Singapore Zoo where you will see Singapore’s orangutans and exotic imports like tigers, sea lions, baboons and giraffes. With areas dedicated to the Lush rainforest, Wild Africa and Australian outback the zoo is a delight to all. The separate Night Safari attraction provides night-time viewing of nocturnal animals at play from the vantage point of a safari-style tram.More

Battlebox

star-5211
An unusual museum 30 feet (nine meters) beneath Fort Canning Hill, the secretive British military fort known as Battlebox once played an important role in Singapore’s history. Used by the Malaya Command to defend Singapore during World War II, the bunker was where Lieutenant-General Arthur Percival ultimately surrendered Singapore to the Japanese, marking the decline of the British Empire. Today, the cavernous space is filled with lifelike wax mannequins and antique photos and video clips that depict what it was like to live and strategize within the gray, 29-room labyrinth during the final days of the war.More
#6

Singapore Chinatown

star-53,243
Home to traditional shop houses, temples and cultural heritage, Singapore Chinatown is a must see for most visitors. From the rooftop dragons of the Thian Hock Keng Temple, the festively gaudy Hindu Sri Mariamman Temple to the outdoor eating area of Smith Street. Chinatown has something for everyone.More
#7

Clarke Quay

star-4.5486
Lining the Singapore River, the renovated riverside warehouses and ‘godown’ shophouses of historic Clarke Quay make up one of Singapore’s major wining and dining precincts. Now pedestrianised and home to shops, restaurants, nightclubs, river cruise bumboats and floating cafes, the precinct pays homage to Singapore’s river trade and colonial history. Clarke Quay is a good place to look for varied cuisines, from Italian to brewhouse and fine French, and relaxed outdoor bars with riverfront views. It’s also where you’ll find Singapore’s wild Reverse Bungy adventure ride.More
#8

Night Safari at Singapore Zoo

star-41,729
Singapore Zoo Night Safari, Winner of the Singapore Tourism Awards Best Leisure Attraction Experience, is the world's first tour of its kind. On an open tram you'll explore 40 hectares of jungle adjoining the zoo, passing a large reservoir and weaving through habitats specially designed to replicate the Himalayan foothills, Southeast Asian rainforest and Indian subcontinent. Enjoy spotting animals in their natural environments on this unique night tour!More
#9

Little India

star-52,083
For sub-continental color, cuisine, atmosphere and bustle, head to Singapore’s Little India, one of the island’s most vibrant and authentic precincts. Shops, restaurants and colorful Hindu temples line the streets of Little India, and the best thing to do here is to just take a walk and drink it all in. The Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple is dedicated to the bloodthirsty god Kali, Sri Srnivasa Perumal is dedicated to the more peaceful Vishnu, the Taoist Leong San See Temple is dedicated to the Goddess of Mercy, and the Temple of 1000 Lights features a gaudily lit Buddha. Come to Little India to sample terrific curries, dosas and banana-leaf thalis at restaurants, street stalls and cafes. Shop for everything from incense to saris, and lose yourself in the interestingly named Thieves Market, where anything and everything is for sale.More
#10

Marina Bay Sands

star-492
There’s a lot you can do with $8 billion, and the Marina Bay Sands may have just done them all. Touted as the world’s most expensive casino this 2,561 room integrated resort lavishly offers nearly anything that a visitor could ever need on their stay in Singapore. In addition to the 500 tables and 1,600 slots which comprise the atrium casino, the Marina Bay Sands has also opted to include an ice-skating rink, two entertainment theatres, the 300-store Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands shopping mall, an art science museum and a full range of evening entertainment and shows. There is also an impressive, 478 foot (145.7 meter) long infinity swimming pool which gazes out over the Singapore skyline at the aptly named SkyPark—an observation deck which stretches longer than the Eiffel Tower were it laid down. Swimmers with a fear of heights beware: the “infinity” edge looks out over a 55-story drop to the street level below.More

This is a great way to see the main features of Singapore however, due to road closures we were stuck in quite a bit of traffic and this resulted in a real sense of rush every stop we made.
