Orchard Road’s 20-odd malls are like hives for shopper bees. Teenagers either blow their allowances at Far East Plaza (great for the budget conscious), or save them for *Scape’s weekend bazaar and events. Discerning shoppers head to ION Orchard for eight levels of upscale international designers. 313@Somerset is also great for popular brand names.

"Big India" is a bit far away, so why not save your legs and dive into this foodie's paradise instead? Muthu’s Curry and Banana Leaf are two popular places for fish-head curry, a local delicacy. Little India is one of the last few districts to retain its cultural and architectural authenticity. Don’t miss the ancient Sri Mariamman Temple.

Singapore’s grittiest district is a pink-lit haze of loopy lorongs (lanes) with charming thatched-roof shops and colorful facades. Massage parlors (both adult-oriented and mainstream) offer a thousand ways to relax. Belt out "Cantopop" or Teresa Teng tunes at karaoke, or sink your teeth into some famed chilli crab from one of the seafood eateries.

Tanjong, Palawan and Siloso are man-made beaches filled with dozens of upscale hotels and even more locals soaking up the sun. Take your kids to Universal Studios, or watch 15,000 creatures flutter by at Butterfly Park.

Palms jut out of the concrete between Marina Bay’s skyscrapers. Rotate on the huge Singapore Flyer Ferris wheel for some dizzying fun. Take a gander at the Gardens by the Bay, or pull out your microscope and head to the ArtScience Museum for an interactive experience. For kicks, cross over Helix Bridge (a curved bridge that resembles DNA).

Adrenaline junkie? Then you'll love to feel the gravity of the G-Max Reverse Bungee. Take in the views of Marina Bay and the famous half-lion, half-fish fountain at Merlion Park. At dusk, the pace slows down as the sun reflects on the water, but a stroll along Boat Quay, Clarke Quay or Robertson Quay reveals plenty of restaurants that pop with color.

The fabric-beating locals cleared out of this area, known as "Laundrymen by the Riverside" in Hindi. Fort Canning’s hilltop picnic areas are delightful. Watch arthouse films at The Cathay, shop at Plaza Singapura, or head over to Istana to see the President’s official residence – its grounds, full of security guards, are open on public holidays.

Singapore is an island city-state that packs a ton of culture within its tiny borders. Malay, Chinese, Indian, and Arab communities have all left their mark on the city, each bringing their distinct flavors into the mix.
Singapore's fusion of cultures is fascinating whether it's your first visit or fifteenth. In just one day you can go sourvenir shopping in Chinatown, take a moment to meditate at the four-storey Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, check out all the statues covering Little India’s Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple, and stop to have a mint tea in the Arabic quarter.
Or if you prefere to take it slow, dedicate a full day to each neighborhood. Kampong Glam’s maze of bazaars, flea markets, and teahouses shouldn’t be rushed, and Orchard Road is a luxury mall perfect for a patient stroll.
Singapore is on the frontline in the fight against climate change, and the Gardens by the Bay are living proof. This enormous huge area of reclaimed land near the Marina has unique green spaces, and their "supertrees" and "cloud forests" demonstrate how cities even as densely populated as Singapore can be sustainable.
With over 100 airlines serving Changi Airport, traveling to Singapore is straightforward. Plus the year-round warm weather means anytime is the best time to visit.

One of the most instagrammable places I've experienced and surpassed what I've seen online! The lists of 'best places' to visit are a great start to get 'lost' in the city that's full of beautiful spots. I stayed at the Marina Bay Sands, was upgraded to a harbor view, and it was well worth it. Access to the Gardens by the Bay and the shopping center were so convenient. Car app 'Grab' was my choice of transportation and took me to Little India, Arab Street, and other go-to spots. The Art & Science Museum was amazing and I loved all the food options. 2.5 days is not enough to soak in the vibe. Note that this was before countries started locking down travel and Singapore was fairly empty according to the locals.
Singapour is a very clean place, and thinking of Corona virus every one is following recommendations and rules.....which is clearly not the case in Europe. A lot of places to see and visit including for children. Jewel at the airport terminal 1 is a good example. People are always nice and friendly, used to deal with people speaking an other language, having different skin color , different religion or different way of life.....once again a clear lesson for European citizen.
Very cosmopolitan city; exceedingly clean city, including the subway system. the u.s. could take some lessons! overly expensive to visit...food, drinks, hotels, attractions. Loved the little boat tour of the Singapore River. the biosphere and gardens of the world were exceptional
Great architecture, safe and clean. Female joggers feel safe after dark. Excellent zoo and flower dome. Recommend transportation app as paper maps notreadily available. Busses don’t announce stops. They really like basically uncooked eggs here so beware if you like soft -poached, lol. However, durians (which I hate door of) are not allowed in busses etc.
I’ve been to Singapore three times already and I still discover a lot of places to go. The culturally diverse food is a haven for foodies and although the city is known for being expensive you can still do activities without spending too much. Planning and researching are the keys and of course it’s better to have a wifi for navigating the city. Its easy to navigate either by bus, taxis or trains.
Singapore is a vibrant colourful city. Reliable and cheap public transport with the MRT, buses and taxis. Singapore has a variety of tourist sites to visit and a multitude of restaurants, food-halls and fast-food to choose from.
