Where innovation, creativeness and environmental solutions meet.
There’s so much more in Singapore that 3 days wouldn’t be enough. Its 719.1 km² packs endless must-visit and must-see tourist spots worth every penny. Considered the most modern city in Asia, impressive architecture, futuristic buildings, interesting historical sites and aesthetically preserved nature. Needless to say, Singapore seems to have it all. Will definitely go back to uncover hidden gems and explore more!! Here’s our experience in the top attractions in Singapore.
1. Marina Bay View at Helix Bridge
Address: Marina Boulevard, Singapore 018980, Singapore
At the Helix bridge you can capture awe-inspiring panoramic views of Singapore’s skyline and also watch events taking place at the Marina Bay Sands from one of the viewing platforms.
Marina Bay Sands is the most expensive hotel in SG and has the best skyline view of Singapore. It gained so much attention from it’s integrated architecture – luxury hotel, an endless collection of shops, a convention center that is one of the largest in Asia, theater, an ArtScience Museum and other entertainment centers. I used to see this image in internet, in a friend’s post, in ads but dreams do come true. Mapapa-WOW ka na lang talaga! Best time to visit is around 5:00 pm so you’ll catch the sunset and city lights at night.
2. Merlion Park and Esplanade Bridge
If you’re like me, a first-timer I bet you wanna see the Singapore’s iconic half-fish and half-lion, Merlion Park. Spouting water from its mouth, the Merlion statue stands tall at 8.6 metres and weighs 70 tonnes.
Oopps. Sorry! That’s not the Merlion, it’s my sister trying to recreate cute photo op. Do expect a lot of tourists in the park and some are just enjoying the place while others are really having fun taking selfies. Just like what we did.
3. Haji Lane
You’ll feel like you’re entering a different world as soon as you step foot in Haji Lane. Vibrant, colorful and happy environment seems to welcome you. The street arts and graffiti walls are pretty amazing. A perfect blend of traditional styles and modern vintage. This place is a shoppers paradise by day and a party hub by night I guess.
4. Clarke Quay
A place for Happy Hours. If you are looking to unwind and have a good time make sure you visit Clarke Quay. So many choices to make, clubs and pubs for you to die for. Live band and music is a plus to soothe the night.
4. Gardens by the Bay
You can stay for hours and wouldn’t be bored there is so much to see but you shouldn’t miss the walk between the trees with an amazing view. Home to iconic Supertrees and two amazing conservatories — Cloud Forest and Flower Dome. If you have time for just one attraction in Singapore, then this should be it.
When day turns to night, the Supertrees come alive. The Garden Rhapsody light show is free and starts around 7:45PM and 8:45PM nightly. You can sit or better lay down to get a perfect view of dancing lights.
