Singapore – More to See

We’ve previously talked about Singapore’s malls, food, neighborhoods and many more. But that’s not all you can do in Singapore. Here’s an additional list of our favorite places:

LANDMARKS

  • Merlion – the Icon of Singapore: When we were small, we used to get Merlion-shaped chocolates to give to our friends as souvenirs. Everyone would be happy, because it was the most famous landmark in Singapore. Now, people are more familiar with the architectural wonders at Marina Bay Sands, but the Merlion still inspires visitors as it stands proudly over the water.
  • The Singapore Flyer – A Giant Ferris Wheel: The gigantic observation wheel isn’t like most Ferris wheels you’ve been to. The Singapore Flyer not only shows breathtaking views of the city, it also offers high tea and butler service!
  • Clarke Quay – Food, Food, Food: This riverside complex offers restaurants, bars and shops with an amazing view of the river. It’s especially beautiful at night, when the buildings light up in so many different colors.

 

GARDENS

  • Singapore Botanic Gardens: It’s so peaceful to stroll leisurely while enjoying the garden’s trees, lakes, flowers and sculptures,. It’s easy to wander off and get lost in the sizable area but don’t worry, you’ll always find friendly people and multi-language signs to help you find your way back.
  • The Orchid Garden: Orchids are Singapore’s national flower, so it’s no surprise that the city has its own orchid garden.

 

ZOOS

  • The Night Safari: We still remember the first time we went to the Night Safari, where we took a tram in the dark. We saw nocturnal animals prowling in the dark, explored exhibits and took extremely blurry pictures – we still think they are pretty good for 12-year-olds!
  • The Singapore Zoo: The Singapore Zoo occupies a large forested area next to the Night Safari, and it’s especially popular with children. You can see animals in their habitats and play with interactive exhibits there.
  • Jurong Bird Park: We don’t really remember our experience at Jurong Birdpark, since we’ve only visited it once. But looking at photos of brightly-colored birds and our smiling faces, we could tell that it was a fun experience.

 

THEME PARKS AND RESORTS

  • Universal Studios Singapore: We’ve been to Universal Studios a few times. It’s an amazing theme park, with cool rides, live entertainment and characters in full costume.
  • Sentosa: Sentosa is an island resort by Singapore’s Southern coast, with beautiful hotels, beaches, theme parks and amazing food and events.
