From lush gardens, hawker centres and Little India, to futuristic cityscapes, Michelin starred restaurants and Chinatown, it’s time to explore Singapore!
I’ve just returned from my first trip to Singapore, and WOW this small country has a lot to shout about! With just a few days to explore the city, I packed a lot in. Food was a big part of it, as I love getting to know a destination through its cuisine! I saw the city’s best views, snapped photos of colourful street art, explored temples, learned about feng shui, marvelled at the architecture and more! So if you’re wondering what to do in Singapore then this travel guide is a great place to start. Find out how to get there in style, all about the city’s attractions, the best restaurants and bars, and how to make your experience extra special.
Is Singapore Worth Visiting?
Yes 100%! It was my first time in the city and I discovered there was plenty to see and do. The ‘city in a garden’ contains great elements from all my favourite places in the world, and packs them into a really accessible, compact city. You can start the day with street food in Little India, then snap pics of the street art in super-cool Kampong Glam, head to a Michelin starred restaurant for dinner, enjoy a magical light show at the Gardens By The Bay, then top off the day by enjoying the twinkly city lights from the rooftop of Marina Bay Sands. There’s something for every budget, age and taste!
Top Things To Do In Singapore
Experience The Lush Side Of The City At The Gardens By The Bay
This was one place I couldn’t wait to visit, having seen so many photos of the gigantic illuminated ‘trees’ on Instagram! With two large glass domes housing beautiful species of plants, special exhibitions (we saw Tulipmania during our trip!) and even a waterfall, they’re well worth the $28 charge (book tickets here). However, if you’re looking for things to do in Singapore on a budget, that works too, as you can actually wander Supertree Grove without paying any admission prices.
I’d recommend arriving around 4pm to explore the domes before sunset, then head out to the Supertrees to enjoy Garden Rhapsody – a special music and light show which takes place daily at 7.45pm and 8.45pm. It’s one of the things to do in Singapore at night, not to mention a totally magical ways to see the city!
