1. Wander in the Gardens by the bay
Forget everything that you knew till know about all the gardens you have seen. Apart from the diversity of the plants, you will get to see supernatural artificial trees that blow the park with solar energy (Supertree Grove), plant domes (Flower Dome) and a tropical forest (Cloud Forest)! We should not forget to add to these, a swaying bridge (OCBC Skyway), carved sculptures and lakes. It is more than clear that it is a place that you had better not forget to put off the bucket list when in Singapore.
Entrance is free for the Gardens. Some parts of the Flower Dome, Cloud Forest, OCBC require an extra fee. Don’t forget to visit the audio-visual light show in Supertree Grove at 19.45 & 20.45.
2. Visit the Exhibitions of Art and Science Museum
It’s a futuristic museum, located in one of the city’s most pretty spots, Marina Bay. Exhibitions combining technology with art, will not only inspire you but also teach you a lot. There are temporary exhibitions but also permanent ones, like the Future World Exhibition that really worth paying a visit!
I still can’t forget the first time that, after a jet lag, we found ourselves walking in Marina Bay at 3 am. It was pure magic! Illuminated skyscrapers, the calm waters of the gulf, Marina Bays Sands magnificent hotel, and our love. It makes you feel like you have it all, like the world is yours to conquer. If that’s not a good reason to visit Singapore, then what is?
You should not forget to watch the free Spectra show, with waters and lights. It lasts about 15 minutes and you can watch it from 20.00-21.00
4. Take a Dive into a Rooftop Pool
Singapore offers first-class hotel operations, with incredible pools. The warm climate is suitable for such activities and allows you to swim all year round and enjoy the view from the skyscrapers to the fullest! It is high time you spoiled yourself a little bit, and that’s the perfect country for you to do it.
5. Taste the Famous Chili Crab
A real traveler is one who loves to wander in new culinary paths wherever he is. So, when in Singapore you will get to realize the variety of the flavors you can taste. The city-state itself is a mixture of many different people and cultures. But if you are seeking to taste the absolute plate, that would definitely be the famous chili crab. A whole crab dived in a sweet chili sauce! One of the tastiest and mouthwatering plates we have ever tasted.
6. Meet the Tradition in China Town and Little India
Something really special about Singapore is that it is a mishmash of various cultures that live harmonically altogether. You will get to meet Chinese, Indian, Malaysian and European people! The result of this multicultural composition is the creation of beautiful traditional neighborhoods, like Chinatown, Little India and the Arab Quarter. At these points you will get to experience their culture form every aspect, their cuisine, architecture, as well as their way of life.
The Botanical Gardens of Singapore are a true oasis in the city. You will see the tropical vegetation and you will get to get lost in the endless grasses. Enjoy your walk and don’t forget to visit the special garden with the orchids!
Other interesting activities to do in Singapore are: Night Safari, Sentosa Island, Universal Studios, Hawker centers.
