Best Places to See in Singapore


Singapore is not like cities in Europe with amazing old buildings and churches, It also not like Southeast Asian countries with a lot of amazing mosques and temples. Singapore does not even have mountains or falls or nightlife like Amsterdam. So why people come here,  Most of the interesting things in Singapore are modern and are luxury to experience just like Dubai.

Marina Bay Sands

It's a luxury hotel with an amazing infinity pool on the roof that looks like a ship with a nice view of the city. Very expensive hotel. Downstair is a luxury shopping mall with all kinds of affordable to the expensive stuff. It has a casino, museums, water parks and the usual things we see in the Shopping Mall. Marina Bay Sands is easy to find as it is the center of Singapore and is connected to the underground train.




Gardens by the Bay is located just behind the Marina Bay Sands, It's not an ordinary park with just trees and places to rest, there are lots of attractions and activities that you're going to see and experience here. The gardens are open until 2:00am and the light shows is a must to see.

Marina Bay

In front of the Marina Bay Sands is the Marina Bay facing the skyscrapers of Singapore. Together with Merlions, Singapore Flyer and Esplanades there are also a lot of al fresco restaurants, hotels, and shops that are amazing to see especially with lights on at night.

Boat Quay Singapore

Marina Boat Quay is a lane of restaurants of different cuisines in the riverbank of Singapore Bridge just behind the Fullerton Hotel, Raffles Place Centre and New Bridge, The view from the Boat Quay Inn terrace is amazing, the same if you stay a bit in the base of the New Bridge. There are boats along the river that cruise all the way to the Marina Bay.



Raffles Place Centre

This is the business capital, the center of the skyscrapers of Singapore, This is basically you're going to see the office workers. Hawker's food store here is reliable as most of the professional office workers eat here. The place is very near to Marina Bay, Boat Quay, and China Town. Aside from the underground train, it is also connected by an underground shopping mall going to Marina Bay Sands. Don't mistake this as Raffles City, Raffles City is another place in Singapore where Raffles and Fairmont Hotel are located.

China Town

Every country has its own version of China Town, I can say this is the cleanest Chinatown I've ever seen. If you love to walk, then China Town is a 15 minutes walk from the business center and New Bridge in Boat Quay. Basically, Chinatown is good for outdoor shopping and eating. There are so many hawkers food court and shopping mall in the area and is also connected by underground train.

Little India

I have never been totally in this part of Singapore, but my fellow traveler in the guesthouse show me a picture when he went there during the Diwali Festival, He was amazed in the lanterns and colorful street decorations, people in their traditional dress and the street performer. It is also connected by an underground train and underground passage.

Orchard Road

This road has a lot of huge shopping mall and hotels, This is like the high street of Singapore, People comes here to show their fashion and style and of course to shop. Noticeably that during Saturdays and Sundays the place is full of Kabayans it's simply because one of the Mall there has mostly Filipino products and services. This is my favorite part of Singapore because I love new things, electronics, and people. The place is also connected by underground train and the mall is connected by the underground passage.

Sentosa Island

Sentosa Island can be reached by going to Vivo Shopping Mall. Vevo is a regular shopping Mall that is connected by a Tram going to Sentosa Island. Sentosa Island is an island in Singapore design for relaxation and entertainment. There are so many hotels, restaurants and attractions to see and experience. The beaches are also located on this Island. Cable car, Universal Studios, iFly skydive, forest are some of the attractions I did experience.

Geylang

This place is a residential area with a lot of hawkers food, shops and if I am not mistaken this is already the red light district. I see some establishments here where there are some ladies on stage. This place is for everybody, the poor and rich meets here. In this place, you'll think that people don't cook at home because the hawker's food center are always full.

Botanic Garden

I've been here just a few hours because of the rain, that is why I didn't see all the things but they have a restaurant inside, a lot of big trees and plants that I saw for the first time, there is the lake with a lot of big fish, there is some pay per entry places inside, And I see there a rooster that is roaming around.

Most of the places of interest in Singapore can be reached using their numerous Rail, Train system. Some places are also connected by underground passage and Mall which are good during the rains or when it's very hot outside.

There is so much more to see in Singapore especially if you have a lot of money.
