Top 5 Attractions you must visit in Singapore

Gardens by the Bay and Merlion

If you are living in Singapore and are in the mood for something futuristic yet aesthetically appealing, there is no better place than the Supertree Grove and Cloud Garden at Gardens by the Bay. Get ready to be impressed by the awe-inspiring mega structures of these billion-dollar artwork.

The 18 trees are the star of the park – fusing nature and science, in fact they harvest solar energy to power the trees below. It also features the world’s tallest indoor waterfall. You should plan to visit during the early evening so you can admire the sunset views, as well as the nightly light and water show that happens across the Bay.

Only a few minutes walk away is the famous Merlion statue. The statue is a combination of the tail of a fish and the head of a lion, and is said to represent the city.

Singapore Botanic Gardens

The Singapore Botanic Gardens were named a UNESCO world heritage site in 2015, and for good reason. A stroll through the famous orchid gardens will put you in awe of the lush powers of the tropical climate.

The complex also features a ginger garden, a rainforest garden, and a healing garden that cultivates plants used for natural remedies. The Botanic Gardens are pets friendly, so many Singaporeans who live in Holland Village area will often take their dogs for a walk.

The Botanic Gardens are open daily from 5am to midnight, though the orchid gardens are only open from 8:30am to 7pm.

Haw Par Villa

Haw Par Villa- is not your typical amusement area. Instead of exciting rides and fun themed-houses, it has a series of intricately carved tableaus of scenes from Chinese mythology.
Home to over 1,000 sculptures, the park – located on a hill in the Pasir Panjang neighbourhood, is a mysterious yet fascinating display. The park features famous scenes, including the somewhat gruesome 10 Courts of Hell, as well as Madame White Snake and Journey to the West.

While somewhat off the main stream tourist attraction, the park gives you a look into Singapore’s Chinese heritage, this is especially true after the tourism board took over the grounds in 1985. Located at 262 Pasir Panjang Road, the park is open daily from 9-6. Admission is free.

Night Safari

The Night Safari is a section of the Singapore Zoo, and is the first zoo experience designed to feature nocturnal animals. In 1994, the Zoo board saw an opportunity to provide a special engagement experience with many of the regions indigenous creatures, who only come out at night.

Visitors come from all over the world to view the over 2,500 animals in their nighttime habitats.

The feature attraction of the park is the guided tram tour that will take you on a wander through 7 different geological ecosystems including the Himalayas, equatorial Africa, and Southeast Asian river forests.

Additional walking trails get you deeper into the habitats for the opportunity to get up close and personal with wallabies, leopards, flying squirrels, and others.

Because it is a nocturnal park, only night visits are available. The park is opened from 7:15 to midnight daily, however the restaurants and other event spaces are available from 5:30pm on.

Singapore Flyer

The Singapore Flyer is a slow moving capsule Ferris wheel that will take you up above the city skyline for a bird’s eye view of Singapore. It is one of the largest observation wheel in the world, offering panoramic views of Marina Bay, the city center, and the sea. Round trips last around thirty minutes, and are available for both daytime and moonlight views.
