I haven't been there before so everything is new.
The Zoo is wonderful and world class. The Aquarium is also very nice, and it is fun to take the cable cars to Sentosa Island. Fort Canning Park is nice for an afternoon stroll.
I always stay in the Little India area. There is really not much to see there outside of a stroll, but it is convenient and not too expensive (I usually stay at Hotel 81 on Dickson or the Albert Court Hotel). There is also a sort of "backpackers alley" inside that has beer and obnoxious ferringhi ;)
One evening I'd start at the Chinatown Heritage Center at Pagoda Street and make your way slowly through Chinatown. The Heritage Center is open late, at least until 7PM, and I wouldn't go before 6PM or you'll miss the evening bustle of Chinatown. On the way, you'll see the Sri Mariamman Temple, a Hindu temple, and the Jamae Mosque, and Indian Muslim mosque, and the beautiful Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum which is a fantastic Buddhist pagoda/museum. Finally, make your way to the Maxwell Road Food Centre for dinner!
Other than that, I'd say that food and shopping is what Singapore has to offer! over 7 years ago
I suggest taking the Duck Tours program where you will be taken to a lot of places in Singapore. Or if this is out of your budget, check out the stops that they go to.
I wouldn't necessarily recommend the Singapore Zoo or the Jurong Bird Park, unless you are a really animal lover and haven't seen animals in ages. I'm an animal lover myself, but a zoo is a zoo is a zoo.
I would recommend going to Universal Studios in Sentosa, or taking a ride at the Singapore Flyer in Marina Bay. over 7 years ago
Taking hop-on/hop-off bus is more costly than taking the MRT and ordinary bus. These are some of their tourist attractions (from my recent travel to Singapore):
Museums - National Museum of Singapore, and ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay (check what they have on exhibit because they might have something interesting like the time I went where they had the Titanic exhibit).
Zoo - I would strongly suggest the Singapore Zoo over the Night Safari because there are more that you can see at Singapore Zoo. If you like to take photographs, you cannot get decent photos at the Night Safari especially if you are on the tram.
Sentosa Island - Their Underwater World, Songs of the Sea, and their rides. As well as Universal Studios although USS is smaller than Universal Studios in U.S.
Merlion Park - For picture taking.
Singapore Flyer - 360 degree panoramic view of Singapore cityscape.
China town - For souvenirs, photo, and dining.
Little India - For photo and dining. over 7 years ago
The Merlion in Singapore is the symbol of Singapore.. The night life at Clarke Quay.. The flower garden in the botanic garden of Singapore.. The zoo and night safari.. Fort canning park.. The famous tourist must go shopping area - orchard road.. Chinatown where all the chinese used to stay and little India for the Indians.. If you like beaches - you can go to sentosa.. about 7 years ago
Well, there are a lot of good sceneries in Singapore. But shopping in Singapore would be the best. Why so? It is because Singaporeans are really booming when it comes to fashion trends. They are very updated with new styles and sometimes, they don't just go with the flow. They are making their own trade marks in the fashion industry. In case, you are wondering what I am talking about, here's a link of a site that showcases Singaporean styles http://lasambucalifestyle.com/.. You should go and see for yourself why Asians are now trending in the fashion industry. about 7 years agoAnswered by Sara Tagami via Travellr.com
