Singapore an island city. One of my favourite places to visit. Singapore's Changi airport is one of the best airports in the world. The airport has a miniature of the top attractions of this city. Spotted the Merlion (The popular icon of Singapore, depicted as a mythical creature with a lion's head and a fish's body), the gardens by the bay at the airport. You would definitely enjoy your pre departure wait here as a Singapore tourist. And enjoy surplus duty free shopping buying chocolates for friends home.

Here goes my list of the Top 10 Places to Visit in Singapore
Sentosa - No visit to Singapore could be complete with out visiting the Sentosa. A popular island resort and one of the best places to visit in Singapore.
