Travel Guides and trips for things to do singapore singapore

This island city-state located south of Malaysia is all about modernity. Synonymous with its iconic skyline that exhibits discernable features such as that of the Esplanade and Marina Bay Sands, the Lion city is also scattered with traditional architecture seen on temples and homes, bohemian hideaways and heritage bazaars. Chinatown, Dempsey Hill and Tiong Bahru are some of the most popular places to visit in Singapore. And if you are visiting Singapore in January, experience the joy that is the Chinese New Year, when the entire city comes out to celebrate. Unwind at the 182-acre Botanic Gardens. Take a heritage walk through some of the city’s most prominent landmarks such as the historic Supreme Court and the City Hall buildings. Museum enthusiasts should head to the edifying Singapore Art Museum and Singapore’s history, the National Museum of Singapore. For moments away from the megalopolis, take the ferry down to Pulau Ubin, Kusu Island or Sisters’ Island and take delight in the tourist-free tropical coastline. If you are looking to explore around, a cruise (to Malaysia or Thailand) is a fairly popular thing to do. For a glimpse into what Singapore tourism to offer, visit one of the state-of-the-art waterparks or experience indoor skydiving in the beaches of Sentosa. When the sun sets, dance the night away at the bustling nightlife district of Clarke Quay or hit up one of the many legendary beach parties. Also in Singapore, do as the locals do and queue up for a taste of the authentic street eats. Shaped by its multi-ethnic immigrants, Singaporean street cuisine is an experience in itself.

Top Places To Visit in Singapore 1210 Spots

Singapore, Singapore
I was eagerly waiting for the third day of my trip as I had planned to visit Universal Studios today. I hadn’t booked the ticket online so I made sure I reach there by 10 am (it opens at 10) and bought the ticket (76 SGD). Do not carry heavy backpacks/purses etc. as there is lot of walking to be done till 6 PM (the closing time) and you will be dead tired. Make sure you are wearing comfortable clothes and shoes. The park consists of seven themed zones which is either based on a movie or a television show, featuring own unique attractions, character appearances, dining and shopping areas.Hollywood is the entrance area and you will be floored. Moving on I found two ways (right and left) I started with left and entered the Madgascar zone. They have a photograph zone with zoo animals in background so I skipped it but at closing time it was free so I jumped in and got myself clicked. Everyone can try their two themed rides i.e. water boat ride (you can skip this) and merry go round ride. I was lucky enough to see the penguin and tiger characters. Be prepared to stand in a queue to get yourself clicked with them. I then moved towards the Far Far Away zone. I patiently waited for the crowd to disperse to get myself clicked in front of the castle. Their 3 D Shrek show is must. The roller coaster had a big queue so I skipped and saw Donkey Live performance. I then queued up for Puss in Boots-themed roller coaster (Try occupying front facing seats). People with kids were also queuing up for a roller coast meant for kids. I then moved on to The Lost World zone. You will be greeted with big size dinosaurs with fountains and a big gate named Jurassic Park. I started with Canopy Flyer (another roller coaster) which is a must moving on to Rapids Adventure (another must ride). There is generally huge crowd and they don’t allow anything on the ride so you have to deposit all your stuff in a locker (on 1hour/2 hour basis ranging from 5SGD). (Tip: If you are fine, always take single rider queue and you will find yourself done with the rides in half of the time). You will definitely not need raincoats for Rapids Adventure ride so please don’t buy. I then moved to the Ancient Egypt zone. The entrance had king size statues depicting ancient Egypt. I started with their roller coaster dark ride (Revenge of the Mummy). You will have to take lockers (paid) if you have bags etc. Mobile phones are allowed. I then went on to their theme based car ride (Treasure Hunters you can skip this). I then entered their Sci-Fi City. It had transformers figures and modern cars. If you have the courage do, try the world's tallest pair of dueling roller coasters. I simply couldn’t. It looked too scary. I tried their 4-D Dark Ride Motion Simulator which was highly entertaining (do not miss it at any cost). The last zone was New York City zone. There was a street performance going on and it was pleasure to watch. They had selected volunteers from the crowd to dance with them. The last attraction I went was a stage show named Lights! Camera! Action! Hosted by Steven Spielberg (definitely a must).

18 Marina Gardens Drive, Singapore 018953
On my last day I visited Gardens by the bay. The Garden is free to enter. Flower Dome and Cloud Forest was enthralling. Amazing architecture & presentation of the ecosystem. Scale of the place is mind blowing. You should definitely buy tickets for both and explore Its worth the time, energy and money. I didn’t buy tickets for OCBC Skyway though. Even though they have paid shuttle service to take you around, I suggest to explore it on foot.

Weekend Getaways from Singapore  

Malacca is a historical place and it holds a great importance to it. Here you will find mostly museum and churches related to origin of Malaysia ,their culture and people. Also this city was important in terms for trading at that time.. You can enjoy the boat ride here to get a full view of the city. Night city looks more beautiful and charming. Please also try the tricycle ride in the city. Its a 1 day trip from KL takes approx 2 hours by Cab.Cab charged us 480 RM for a return trip ( We bargained from RM 600 to 480 ). There are buses which starts from KL central also they charge your around 100 RM ONE WAY. Also since Malaysia is in the tropical zone in summers it gets very hot there so don't forget to pack your hats and Umbrellas.
