    Singapore Things to Do

    Worst experience ever due to combination of broken attraction and staff who really do not like customers ruining their chill out time. We prebooked a birthday party with two lanes for a group of 8-9 year old kids. Wave machine booked for 11am, at 11am on the dot staff wonder up and fiddle with the machine - it's broken. Nobody bothers to mention...

    Singapore Things to Do

    I'm not really into theme parks as I don't enjoy the really fast rides (too much of a control freak!) but my girlfriend dragged me here. It's small for such a park but that makes sense in 30 degree heat. It takes about 4 hours to get around all the rides provided you shell out for the fast lane. The rides are actually reasonably tame, though I did...

    I spent a whole morning in LITTLE INDIA DISTRICT and will describe what i saw there: It was very early and the stores of LITTLE INDIA ARCADE , full of colourful textiles and tapestries , religious statuary were opening. I bought there some souvenirs and T-shirts , very cheap , and could feel a very friendly ambient , among indian people. Then I...

    Singapore Things to Do

    It is not "the end of the world", this show combining music, water jets and laser lights, but after a day strolling in the island to visit its several attractions, it is a relaxing end of the day, sitting for half an hour and watching this free event, before returning to mainland.

    Singapore Things to Do

    Orchard Road and the surrounding area is the most popular shopping district in shopping mad Singapore. Taking a bus down this road is to watch a tide of humanity going from one shopping mall to the next. The shopping malls line the 2.2 kilometer road, stretching up to the sky and disappearing under the road in complex warrens of underground...

  • Merlion Park

    Singapore Things to Do

    Long ago, when Singapore first envisaged itself as a tourist destination, the first tourist attraction it built was the Merlion statue. The Merlion is a symbol of Singapore, and, significantly, of the East India Company which founded the city nearly two centuries ago. The statue has since moved as the Bay area is developed, and today it stands...

    Singapore Things to Do

    The National Orchid Garden is the only part of the Singapore Botanic Gardens to have an admission fee, but it is well worth the $5 charge. There are over 1,000 species and 2,000 hybrids, all beautifully displayed. Look out for the orchid 'Vanda Miss Joaquim', which was the first orchid hybrid bred in Singapore and was chosen as Singapore's...

    Singapore Things to Do

    A common aquarium becomes special with a simple idea: Instead of making you walk around and over the aquarium, a moving belt carries you below it, giving you the sensation of living inside the aquarium, watching the sharks and the other big fishes passing over your head. Really nice. Fernanda "says" that she suffers from claustrophobia, but she...

    Try to allot some time for shopping alone. Head to Bugis Street for a good bargain of souvenir items, or to the Lucky Plaza along Orchard Road (lots of Filipinos there too). For second-hand gadgets, go to Mustafa Centre .

  • Clarke Quay

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Singapore Things to Do

    Picking up a concept which has proven successful in other cities, the old harbour area around Clarke Quay was converted into a leisure area with cafés, shops, bars etc. The high density of them makes it an easy area for club hopping and pub crawling. Though some parts needed to be filled with life, it feels a little more authentic than in Sentosa....

    Jakarta might be called the Big Durian, but now Singapore has two durians in the form of the the Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay. These two domes cover the theaters and concert hall within, and the spiky outward appearance is created by the use of aluminium sun shades.

  • Chinatown

    Singapore Things to Do

    With its heart on the edge of Singapore's business district, Chinatown is especially evocative of the city's origins. Chinatown's colourful 19th century buildings lining the streets under the cloud scraping towers of glass and steel make for a stunning juxtaposition. As you wander Chinatown you can enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of traditional...

  • Zoo, Gardens

    Singapore Things to Do

    It was great to see the animals at night. But the zoo is far from the city center. getting there was easy by taxi. getting away was very difficult, because everybody wanted to leave at the same time. It was expensive. It was nice, but you spend inside a lot of time waiting to get in. next time I would go by day.

    Singapore Things to Do

    While the old harbour area around Clarke Quay has been converted into a bar and restaurant district, the northern area of Boat Quay has polished out it colonial flair. Restaurants and shops are found here as well, but things go a little quieter around here. Not only the square with the Raffles statue on it (see separate tip) gives you an idea...

    Immediately after the double-bus tour I went to Singapore Flyer. It costed $33. The entrance is a mall with escalators that try todistract you with photographies and other things along the queue. I could see the big Ferry wheel from my hotel but it seemed stopped. There , I understood that it turns very very slow , and it allow to enter and exit...

    Everyone must have seen pictures of Singapore's infinity pool, where swimmers enjoy the blue waters hundreds of meters above the ground with the water seeming to drop off into nothing, and only the Singapore skyline behind. Well that's the top floor of the Marina Bay Sands. If you are lucky enough to be able to afford a night here, you can enjoy...

    There's probably nowhere else that evokes Colonial decadence quite like the Raffles Hotel.

It was renowned as the most magnificent hotel in the East. They even danced the last waltz here as the...

    Singapore Things to Do

    Found in Chinatown, rather than where you might expect in Little India, the Sri Mariamman Temple is the main temple for Hindus in the city. It's one of Singapore's oldest buildings, founded just eight years after the British East India established their first trading settlement. The early days of the temple proved problematic, as Hindu temples...

    This is a very unique fountain and really a very beautiful one. This fountain is based on a Hindu Mandala which means has a symbolic meaning of harmony and unity amongst the four races of Singapore. Many people come to touch the waters for luck and I was even told we should walk around the centre 6 times. I only visited here in the day and I was...

    As mentioned in the Sentosa Island, to get to the Merlion, get off at the Imbiah Station. The ticket costs SGD10 if you go inside the Merlion’s body, but you don’t have to pay if you prefer just staying outside the boundary and if it’s okay with you to have your picture taken with the merlion as a background only… that's practically speaking,...

    At only 60 meters above sea level, Fort Canning is only a small hill, but its location makes it a prominent and historically important one. It is here that what little evidence there is of life before Singapore exists. It was once a feared place among locals for being the home of the ancestors. It is here that Stamford Raffles built his first home,...

    The riverfronts at Clarke and Boat Quays have evolved over the last few years, and are now possibly the most popular areas to partake of a meal and/or a drink. The restuarants lining the quays are eclectic, a few are more affordable than others. I suggest that you peruse a few of the menus before settling comfortably (preferably outside near the...

    The Chinatown Heritage Centre is located over several floors in an old shop house in Pagoda Street.

I'm not always a fan of modern interactive or multimedia museum displays that prioritise...

  • Luge and Skyride - Sentosa Island

    Singapore Things to Do

    I tend to like sights that give me a good view, so I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed with the Skyride from Sentosa Island. It promised a lot, but didn't either give me a good view or a lot of excitment. The skyride starts from Sentosa Island, next to the Luge ride, and goes up the hill. At most you're maybe 40-50 meters up in the air,...
