Few destinations are as lushly landscaped as Singapore. A tropical yet urban sprawl, you’ll find no shortage of things to see and do while you’re there. Few people get the chance to stay as long as they’d like so focusing your trip on some of the essential things will help you make the most out of your visit.
Here are some suggestions to aim for during your trip to Singapore to get the most out of it.
Don’t miss out!
Singaporean food courts, known as Hawker Centers, are the ultimate way to try out Singapore’s incredible eclectic cuisine. After all, you’ve come all this way. Make sure that you delve into the culture here by actually tasting it. If you love seafood, you’re in the right country. Chili crabs are an absolute must-try!
Taste a real Singapore Sling! Sure, maybe you’ve ordered one at your favourite bar back home, but there’s something about sipping your sling at the original place of creation, Raffles Hotel. The Long Bar is a fantastic place to chill.
Chinatown and Little India offer another slice of the melting pot culture of Singapore. These are wonderful areas to come sample authentic Indian and Chinese cuisine as well as score some great handicrafts and souvenirs to remember your adventures by.
Got the time?
The Singapore Flyer is a great way to see the city from way up high. You won’t feel cheated if you miss out on it when you’ve got a limited amount of time to see Singapore, but if you have the time, you’ll want to get up there. You can also make reservations to dine at the top and get a 360-degree view during your gourmet experience.
The Singapore Zoo is quite possibly one of the cleanest and most wonderfully maintained zoos you’ll ever see. Feeding the giraffes is a glorious experience. Embark on the night safari for a totally different experience!
Dare to be different!
Haw Par Villa gives you a break from your vacation budget with a free activity everyone will love. This free park, located on Pasir Panjang Road, is home to thousands of statues and a fascinating exploration of Chinese folklore in diorama-form. It’s an interesting way to take in more culture.
And of course, that’s not even close to all you can find in Singapore! Start planning your trip today!
