It’s my birthday, It’s my birthday, I’mma spend my money in Singapore :) I have this thing about celebrating my birthday in a new city, so this time I chose The Lion City, Singapore.

If you're planning your trip to Singapore for the first time, you shouldn't miss these places.

Day 1

Explore Animals in the Night Safari

Singapore Night Safari is not just any regular zoo, it is the world's 1st safari park for nocturnal animals and a world class attraction for all ages. Take the guided tram ride, it lasts about 40 minutes and guides guests through the 7 geographical zones of the world for close-up of nocturnal animals in each region.

Tickets can be purchased for the stipulated times of 7.15pm, 8.15pm, 9.15pm and 10.15pm.

While you are in the tram you will notice that there are no cages and the animals are a little more than an arm's reach away. Don't bother getting your camera, take pictures in your phone, it will be dark you won't be able to click clear pictures, also flash photography is not permitted.

Once you're done with the tram ride, don't forget to check out the amazing dance performance by the acrobatic artists with fire.

I somehow managed to click one picture, it's not clear though but enough to see the animals.

Supertree Music & Light Show at Gardens By The Bay

Gardens by the bay is one of the most iconic attractions in Singapore. This is the place where nature and meets technology and the best part is that the entrance is free :) Spend your evening by watching the Supertree Grove.

There are 18 Supertrees in Gardens by the bay, 12 of them are found at Supertree Grove and they are of different heights ranging from 25 to 50 meters tall. These sci-fi trees are taken straight from the movie Avataar.

The show is shown every day at 19:45 and 20:45.

Such a cool view...just like the movie Avataar

Wings of Time Show

It's an incredible fusion of light, water, laser & 3D projection. One of its kind entertainment that tells a story of a mystical pre-historic bird, and his friends as they travel across the time. The best part is that the show is in the open sea.

Special tip: Don't visit Sentosa and Universal Studios without any planning, before you start your journey, take the brochure from the counter and tick all the rides/ shows that you want to cover first. This way you won't miss the important rides/ shows. There are a few shows that starts at a particular time, keep a watch on the time and reach there on time so that you don't miss it.

If you want to cover both the places properly, keep 1 day for Sentosa and another day for Universal Studios. If you try to cover both on 1 day, you might miss the must-visit places.

Day 5

Shopping in Singapore

There are many places to shop in Singapore like Orchard Road, Chinatown Street Market, Vivocity, Little India, Clarke Quay, Mustafa Centre and Bugis Street. Since I was staying in Bugis, I went to Bugis Street and found some amazing clothes and accessories at a very reasonable rate. There is a Bugis Junction Mall right opposite to the Bugis Street, check out Cotton on store, you will find some amazing collection at a discounted rate. Take a metro for wherever you want to go. It's reasonable and super convenient.
