Singapore Tourist Attractions & Sightseeing
Singapore Botanic Gardens

A mixture of rainforest, lawns and ponds, the abundance of trees, shrubs and flowers is very peaceful and restful. Also part of the garden is the National Orchid Collection with 1000 orchid species and 2,000 hybrids.
Sentosa has a stretch of sheltered beach of more than two kilometres in length on its southern coast, divided into three portions: Palawan Beach, Siloso Beach, and Tanjong Beach. These beaches are artificial, reclaimed using sand bought from Indonesia and Malaysia. These fantastic beaches plus beach bars, water parks and shows provide all you could want from a tropical island and more.
Marina Bay Sands
The opulent Marina Bay Sands resort complex includes a hotel, high-end luxury brands, a mall with a canal running through it, the ArtScience Museum, and the Marina Bay Sands Skypark – a vantage point for taking in the entire city. The Skypark’s viewing deck and infinity pool are found in the ship (yes, ship) that tops the hotel. Only hotel guests are allowed to use the infinity pool but anyone can visit the observation deck. From the skypark, you can see the innovative double helix bridge, the port, the Gardens by the Bay, and the impressive skyline.
The Singapore Zoo features a much heralded after dark ride or walk through the zoo to view 1000 nocturnal animals in their natural habitats and a Creature of the Night Show. Daytime attractions include the world’s largest collection of captive orangutan and shows that include Elephants at Work or Play, Splash Safari and Rainforest Fights Back.
If the observation deck at the Marina Bay Sands doesn’t quite do it for you, try taking in high tea while looking out over the city from the Singapore Flyer, the world’s largest giant observation wheel. Choose from several different packages that allow you to be served and pampered while enjoying a view that encompasses not only the Singapore skyline, but reaches to the Spice Islands of Indonesia and Malaysia’s Straits of Johor.
Asian Civilisations Museum
For a good overall view of Asian culture, this Museum includes artifacts from a wide range of countries from India to Vietnam and charts the cultural impacts of the beliefs and religions in Middle East, India, Indo-China, China, Japan, Korea and Malay. Housed in a beautiful 19th century structure, the museum’s exhibits include a ninth-century Buddha and a Chinese snuffbox.
If you’ve ever visited China, Singapore’s Chinatown neighborhood will bring you right back there. From the small mom-and-pop stores and authentic Chinese food to the bright red lanterns, there’s an excitement and hustle in this district. You can visit the Chinese Heritage Centre and see the impressive and beautiful Sri Mariamman Hindu temple.
At the Night Safari, you can look a rhinoceros in the eye, hear the howls of a pack of striped hyenas or watch giraffes glide serenely across the plain in the still of the night. This premier night zoo houses over 900 animals of 135 exotic species in eight zones. These zones have been re-created to simulate geographic zones like the Southeast Asian rainforest, African savanna, Nepalese river valley, South American pampas and Burmese jungle.
