Here are the top things you shouldn’t miss when you visit Singapore:

Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade

If you enjoy long walks and strolls, then this is definitely one of the places that you need to visit. You can stroll along the 3.5 kilometer walkway along the bay that would give you a perfect view of the bay, and would come across several attractions along the way as well. While the Marina Bay is one of Singapore’s most treasured natural tourist attractions, the view is surrounded by the modern addition of tall buildings with spectacular designs and skyscrapers as an outlook of the luxurious life in Singapore.

Orchard Road – Singapore’s Famous Shopping District

There’s no better place to have a shopping spree in Singapore than in Orchard Road for there are many high-end stores in every corner of the area. Also, the area is not only limited to doing shopping sprees since the area has at least 22 malls with 3 department stores, an IMAX cinema and four other movie theaters, and also a KTV establishment for those who would love to do karaoke together!

Explore Gardens by the Bay

Singapore is definitely more than just luxurious hotels, lifestyles, and shopping districts. In fact, it could also offer you a peaceful moment with nature – and that is through exploring Gardens by the Bay. This is a nature park that consists of three gardens: Bay South Garden, Bay East Garden, and Bay Central Garden. You can explore the Bay South Garden and enjoy a peaceful and calming moment while admiring nature’s beauty. One of the key things that you shouldn’t miss is the Supertree Grove from the Lily Pond – since this is a perfect example of blending both nature and modern technology. You would also want to check out the tall indoor waterfall at Cloud Forest Dome to really maximise your experience with nature and be familiarised with biodiversity.

Merlion Park

This particular attraction’s name is represented by a mythical creature that has a lion’s head and a tail of the fish for the body. In 2002, the structure was moved to Merlion Park, which is visible from Marina Bay which stands over 8.2 meters tall – the fountain spouting water from the lion’s mouth. The Merlion Cub is a smaller version at 2 meters tall, which is nearby the area, with at least five other Merlion statues scattered within the city. This is the perfect spot to take a picture – either with the symbolic creature, or just the great view of the park – but whichever you’d like, this is the perfect place that would make your friends know you’ve been to Singapore!
