Singapore is a clean, modern, and amazing multi-cultural city to visit that has so much to offer. There are great accommodations, restaurants and bars, parks, and of course one of my favorite things… shopping.
Top 15 Things to See and Do in Singapore
1. Marina Bay Sands SkyPark
A trip to Singapore would not be complete without a visit to the 57th floor of Marina Bay Sands. Start with the world’s largest Infinity pool that captures stunning views of the skyline. Sure, it is overcrowded for sure. Yes, you are in Selfie land here but if you cannot beat them, this is the place to join them! I have seen beautiful days, clouds, and sunsets all from this amazing infinity pool. A must see at last once!
2. Ce La Vi
This is one of my go to places to have some snacks, drinks, and to especially enjoy the sunset over the captivating skyline of Singapore.
3. Watch the laser show and have snacks at restaurant Lantern
Facing Marina Bay Sands is the Lantern Rooftop Bar. From here you have exceptional views of the laser show taking place at Marina Bay Sands across the water. Enjoy appetizers, drinks, and even dinner at this great location at the Fullerton Hotel on the water.
4. Go Shopping in Singapore
Singapore is a shopper’s paradise as long as you have lots of buying power. Go shopping at Marina Bay Sands Shoppes, everything you can ever imagine can be found here… From the mall, you can access Louis Vuitton’s flagship floating store. Head up to the second floor and check out the views from the outdoor deck. Another great shopping area is Orchard Road. This metropolis has it all and is a shopper’s paradise.
5. Gardens by The Bay
Visit the ever so gorgeous Gardens by the Bay. You can walk some of it for free but it is worth visiting the paid attractions here as well. Check out the waterfalls in the Cloud Forest Conservatory, the lighting of the Super Tree Grove structures at night, and the Flower Pavilion. It can be crowded but is worth visiting,
6. Visit Chinatown
I enjoy exploring a city by foot and Singapore is no exception. One area worth walking around is Singapore’s Chinatown. Do some shopping here and enjoy delicious Dim Sum and a beer while people watching. The Tanjong Pagar Temple is a great place for photos.
7. Staying at Ritz Carlton Millenia
This luxury hotel is located in Marina Bay. The spacious lobby area has a nice bar and live music. The bay side rooms offer great views of Singapore’s beautiful skyline. Everything here is first class!
8. Stay and dine at the Four Seasons
Another hotel I have stayed at is the Four Seasons located near Orchard Road Shopping district. The service here is outstanding and the rates are better than what you pay near Marina Bay. Dine at Jiang-Nan Chun. This is an exceptional Cantonese restaurant and I go here every time I visit Singapore.
9. Dine and Party at Lavo
Enjoy dinner or drinks at LAVO located on the 57th floor of Marina Bay Sands. When they stop serving Italian food, the music takes over, and the 180 degree views of the skyline here are amazing.
10. Visit Sentosa Aquarium
This is one of the largest and best aquariums in the world, SEA Aquarium. The aquarium boasts over 100,000 sea creatures and I am not disappointed with the exhibits. One of my favorite exhibits features majestic manta rays. They are so graceful as they glide through the water. Save yourself some time and buy your tickets online before going.
11. Great Option for seeing the sunset, 1-Altitude
They claim to be the “highest alfresco bar in the world.” This is one of my spots to watch the sunset. Here you can enjoy food, drinks, and music while taking in their 360 degree views Singapore’s skyline.
12. Have breakfast at My Awesome Café
This is a great spot to eat breakfast with lots of healthy options.
13. Merlion Park
This waterfront park is known for its mythical Half-fish and half-lion statue that shoots water from its mouth. Check out the bay from the park.
14. Visit the ArtScience Museum on Marina Bay
Just look for the lotus-inspired building on Marina Bay and you have arrived. There are lots of cool Art and Science themed exhibits here to explore and expand your mind.
15. Explore the city by foot
Whenever I can, I always enjoy walking in a city and Singapore is no exception. Explore the bay, the neighborhoods, and discover new places. Singapore is a beautiful city with lots of green spaces to enjoy.
