As a travel blogger, I continually hunt for new places to cross off my bucket list. And Singapore and Malaysia were two of the locations that have been on my radar ever since I first noticed Tripoto working with Singapore tourism in 2019. That's what inspired me to create my own tour with Tripoto's assistance, so that the entire trip would be fascinating.
Join me on my travelogue as I take you around Singapore's must-see locations in order to experience the finest of the city.
Arrive in Singapore early in the morning, get ready, and travel to Little India, which is located in the city's center. Yes, you read it right: Singapore has a retail center that is thought to be the greatest in the world and is entirely devoted to Indian culture.
After finishing your shopping in Little India's Mustafa market, go to the Little India Arcade, which is located just a few blocks away, to eat at one of the country's genuine eateries.
The evening was scheduled for a night safari at the Mandai Wildlife Reserve after a leisurely morning. This reserve, which borders the Singapore Zoo, is unique in that it offers a night safari where you can see wildlife up close while being taken through the jungle by tram and hearing regular commentary about the animals being present in the tram in a variety of languages.
A 30- to 45-minute journey finishes with a burning desire to learn more about these animals' inside lives. And to learn more about it, we go to the amphitheater that was erected on the same site. It hosts presentations every hour that exhibit various information about various animals for everyone in attendance, and the only requirement is that you reserve the ticket using a QR code that is put outside. Right outside the theater, the staff is providing a free light display as you wait for your show to begin.

Time : 7:15pm – 12:00am
Day 2 at Universal Studios in Singapore beckoned for another thrilling adventure after Day 1 finished with one of the most beautiful nights. A whole day at the adventure park will take you to several places that resemble movie sets with a variety of attractions that run at regular intervals. The misconception about these parks is that they were created with children in mind. However, after spending a day at the park with my parents, I realized that these establishments are extremely conscious of the crowds they draw, which is why many of the rides allow elderly people to participate as well.
Cost : Adult S$82 | Child S$61
Time : 11am - 6pm
1. Cable Car Ride
We visited Universal Studios on Sentosa Island, a little piece of land situated off the coast of Singapore, the day before. Roads and a cable car provide good access to the island. Today we take a two-way cable car journey from Mount Faber Cable Car Station, which provides a panoramic view of the sea below with ships passing by. Yesterday, we toured Universal Studios by car. The Harbourfront Station and the Sentosa Island Station are the two stops on this route.
Cost : Round Trip Price: S$33.00 Adult | S$22.00 Child
Time : 8.45am - 10pm (Last boarding 9.30pm)
2. Madame Tussauds Wax Museum
The Madame Tussauds Wax Museum on the island is our first visit for the day as we arrive at Sentosa Island Station and exit the cable car station. Within the vast site, the museum offers 16 various gorgeous locations and a 4D Marvel show that is also included in the admission price. Sridevi, Amitabh Bachchan, Varun Dhawan, and other well-known Bollywood actors serve as the gateway into the world of glitz. As you meander around the museum's halls, you come upon an indoor boat ride that takes you through the city's streets as glowing LED lights hypnotize you. To top it all off, the museum features wax sculptures of Lee Jong Suk, Bae Suzy, and other prominent figures from the present Hallayu (K-Drama and K-Pop) wave.
Cost : Adult S$46.50 | Child S$34.00 (Standard + Marvel 4D + Digiphoto)

3. S.E.A. Aquarium
Take a monorail (which is free) from the station that is closest to the wax museum, Imbiah, to go to the S.E.A. Aquarium after you leave the wax museum. This location will undoubtedly have a chance to transport you to the realm of these aquatic wildlife creatures. It is one of the largest underwater aquariums in the world, with around 1 million kinds of aquatic animals.
Cost : Adult S$40.99 | Child S$30
Time : 10 am - 5 pm
4. Merlion Park
We travel over to Merlion Point, the symbol of Singapore tourism, after interacting with some of the biggest stars in the world at the wax museum and our aquatic companions in the aquarium. This location is on the other side of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, a famous destination in the nation where we may spend an evening at leisure just taking in the scenery while enjoying a light display around the hotel's structure.
Cost : Free
Time : Open 24 hours
Once we have the morning to ourselves, it's time to go on another buying spree at the greatest and most affordable souvenir stores I could find in the city, located in Lucky Plaza on Orchard Street.
1. Singapore Flyer + Time Capsule
On your final day in the city, when you've had a chance to soak in all its energy, take a 165-meter flyer ride to the city's highest point to take in the sunset vistas. The Singapore Flyer tickets include a time capsule that transports you from the country's independence in 1965 to the present. The time capsule records every moment, and R65, the time capsule's mascot, guides you on a trip spanning more than 50 years and demonstrates how the city evolved despite its challenging circumstances. After a stunning trip through the time capsule, take a ride in an open plane from 165 meters above sea level to the summit to record all the mesmerizing moments.
Cost : Adult S$40 | Child S$25 | Senior S$25
Time : 2 pm - 10 pm
2. Gardens By The Bay
After admiring the beauty of the city from above, let's do the same from below in a flower dome, which is the ideal location for all gardeners and botany enthusiasts. The flower dome and the cloud forest are located in separate areas of the gardens by the bay. One of the indoor artificial waterfalls may be seen in the cloud forest, where fake clouds are also created. There is also an Avatar experience available in the cloud forest.
