10 Things to Do in Singapore

Singapore Must-see Attractions

Singapore is a stellar city when it comes to attractions: Almost everyone will have seen an image of the city’s symbol, the Merlion. The impressive Singapore flyer and Marina Bay Sands SkyPark are fast taking on iconic proportions as Raffles Hotel has done for over 100 years.

Science and religion are amply represented by the Science Centre and the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple. Little India and Chinatown are both great gastronomic destinations and while Singapore Botanic Gardens is a gem, the Zoo & Night Safari are also highly recommended for all newcomers to Singapore.
