Dream Vacation

Singapore, one of the only city-states left in existence, offers more beautiful and unique experiences than any travel guide can offer.

We’ve put together a list of the five top Singapore attractions that you have to check out during your visit.

You wouldn’t want to miss these and have a serious case of FOMO.

Keep reading to make the most of your travels.

1. Singapore Attractions You Can’t Miss

There are a few areas to hit if you want to see everything.

The first is Marina Bay, where you’ll see towering skyscrapers, hotels, performances, food, and more.

This is also where you can find Gardens by the Bay and the Singapore Flyer (we’ll discuss these later in the article).

Then, you’ll want to check out Merlion Park. The Merlion is a giant statue of a lion morphed with a fish — a mystical symbol you have to witness yourself.

If you’re looking for a night scene, head to Clarke Quay for clubs, music, drinks, and perhaps a ride on the G-Max Reverse Bungie Catapult.

2. One of Many Incredible Nature Spots

There are countless natural wonders on the islands of Singapore.

The most iconic is the Gardens by the Bay, where architecture and vertical gardens meet in a breathtaking display. Within these Gardens, you’ll find the world-famous Cloud Forest and the Flower Dome.

Other options include:

  • Bukit Timah Nature Reserve
  • East Coast Park
  • MacRitchie Reservoir
  • Night and river safaris
  • The Singapore Botanic Gardens
  • The Southern Ridges

As long as you stroll through one of these places, you’ll be happy with your decision.

3. Soak in the Culture Through the Streets

Simply walking certain streets in Singapore provides you an incredible cultural experience.

Orchard Road, Geylang’s Street, and other cultural neighborhoods are ways to tangibly experience the rich ways of life in this Southeast Asia city-state.

Chinatown, Little India, and Arab Street offer distinct colors, tastes, and sounds that reflect the area in which it represents.

If you’re looking to appreciate local art, take a stroll down Tiong Bahru Road to see unique murals. Additionally, you can wander down Haji Lane’s narrow paths to see architecture that will have you reaching for your camera.

4. Learn About Singapore’s Many Facets

If you ask us, every travel itinerary should include a visit to at least one museum.

Museums offer a specialized look into certain aspects of a place, whether it’s focused on art, history, or science.

Look into some of these options and choose the one that fits your particular interests:

  • ArtScience Museum
  • Asian Civilisations Museum
  • National Gallery Singapore
  • National Museum of Singapore
  • Peranakan Museum

These are only a few of your options but tend to be the most popular choices.

5. See Things For Yourself

At the beginning of your trip, you should hop on the Singapore Flyer (essentially an observation wheel) to get a bird’s eye view of the place.

Alternatively, you can float above the land in a Singapore Cable Car.

Both of these experiences (aside from being flat-out fun) will let you scope the lay of the land and decide if you want to do anything spontaneous that draws your attention.

It’s always good to balance a trip with planned things to do and random, last-minute decisions.

Make It Your Own

The list of Singapore attractions is endless. You have to pick and choose based on your individual preferences.

Besides hitting some of the things we mentioned in this article, plan your trip in your own way.
