    City Sightseeing Singapore - Hop on Hop off

    by nyperose Written Dec 14, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you only have a couple of days to stay in Singapore, this city sightseeing tour is very complete and brings you to most of the interesting sights. You can hop on and off at all the different stops along the route.

    It is a good idea to start the tour in front of the Suntec City Mall, the main starting point for all the tourist buses.

    You can buy a ticket valid for two days, price 33 $, and the ticket is valid on all the different routes and on three different buses. A one-hour river cruise is also included in the price.

    Information On Display!

    by lmkluque Updated Sep 11, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Information Area at the airport was a surprise for me. Not only was it informative and helped to pass the time, it was a thoughtful effort to offer such a nice display giving tourists a chance to familiarize themselves with the area. Unfortunately I didn't realize that I would actually be able to spend some time in Singapore, so I didn't make note of the things to do that might interest me.

    We ended up hiring a driver to take us around town and point out the interesting things so fortunately I did get to see some part of this lovely city.

    The Lim Chu Kang jetty is used by fish farmers to send off their harvest to the local restaurants. There is a marine police post here to ensure users are genuine and not illegal immigrants. The post has several boats to patrol the area.

    The Helix Bridge is set to become Singapore’s next landmark. Located beside the Benjamin Sheares Bridge, alongside the vehicular Bayfront Bridge, it was opened on 24 April 2010 and is the world’s first curved bridge. We saw this marvel bridge on our river cruise.

    Hop on Hop off Tour

    by fachd Written Dec 27, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I'll stick this in Things to do. We took the 24 hour Hop on Hop off Tour. It’s a good introduction to see Singapore. The bus is a double Decker; you can sit either on the deck or inside the bus. The view is much better on the deck but it can be hot, where’s inside the bus is with air condition.

    There are 22 stops which start at Sunctec City Mall however you can board at any of the 22 stops at every 15 minutes. You will probably need to do it in two days for example when you hop off to see Chinatown or Little India it can take you few hours. They are two types of Route you can catch, the Heritage Route (Brown Bus) and City Route (Red bus).

    For more information see the website.

    by FritzBrown Written Apr 17, 2012

    Hi there!

    If you have 3 days to kill at the place itself, you can definitely head off to the following places in Malaysia:

    - KL
    - Langkawi
    - Tioman Island
    - Redang island
    - Malacca

    You might want to do some research on these places beforehand.

    Cheers!

    The parlament building.

    by cachaseiro Written Apr 14, 2012

    The parlament building in Singapore is one of the best excamples of colonial architecture in Singapore and the oldest goverment buildingin the country too.
    It´s from the early part of the 19th century and is still used as the parlament.
    There is a little museum in the building you can visit too if you have the time, but the building itself is interesting enough from the outside in my opinion.

    Visit a Taoist temple

    by jessgotdestiny Updated Jan 20, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After our river tour, our guide showed us to the Taoist Temple.

    One thing you need not worry, you could take pictures anywhere inside the temple. Our guide said it was one of the old temples where people go to before.

    Nowadays, it has become a popular tourist destination.

    It’s a camera-friendly place.

    Affordable option to restuarant dining in Singapor

    by lynnehamman Updated Nov 30, 2011

    5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Being in Singapore, one just has to try a Singapore Sling.The Long Bar in Raffles Hotel is where you go. It is mandatory to drop your peanut shells onto the floor, and I am intrigued by this tradition. I determine to investigate it soon. But the Long Bar has another appeal:

    Singapore has a plethora of restuarants and food markets, and eventually one begins to feel the need for some different kind of experience.
    We always pop into the Long Bar for a Singapore Sling, and one late afternoon, after a hot hectic day- we did just that. It was about 6pm, and we were 'peckish'
    Once again, the decision had to be made- WHERE to eat tonight?
    Then I spied a delicious looking platter being placed on the table next to ours- my taste buds exploded.
    The bar menu is not huge, but the choice is adequate- and the food was, of course, perfect. Up to Raffles standerd. What surprised us most was that the cost of a meal for two was substantally lower than any restuarant we had eaten in. And of course, the atmosphere of the Long Bar is legendry. It oozes charm and elegance, and the peanut shells crackled underfoot.
    We had Beef kebabs (spicy delicious) with a green salad and finely cut potato chips.
    The meal cost us S$25.00

    Love the twirly wooden staircase Messy peanut shells-mandatory all for S$25.00  (drinks not included)

    ISTANA PARK & ISTANA

    by balhannah Updated Nov 20, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We came across Istana Park when we were heading along Orchard Road to the shop's.
    I was hoping to see the Istana [previously, Government House] but there was no chance of doing that. I saw the gate's, and I saw the guard's, that was all! There is a monthly changing of guards ceremony at the Istana, with the best view being from Istana Park.
    Directly opposite, is Istana Park, a very nice park designed by a Japanese landscape architect, it features a reflecting pool and the Festival Arch. The Festival Arch is a 26m long arch rising from a rectangular reflecting pool with slow, flowing water. It was a hot day, and it was nice to find the green park with Tree's and water to give that cooling effect. In the evening, the park is well lit between the hours of 7pm and 7am

    There were a lot of Flags flying because of National Day.
    Istana Park is Singapore's premier park.
