What to See in Singapore

There are so many fabulous Singapore activities to consider adding to your itinerary. The Singapore Zoo and Night Safari are obvious must-see sites for animal lovers, while the Singapore Flyer provides essential aerial viewing if it’s your first time in the city. Other key Singapore landmarks include Tiger Sky Tower and the island of Pulau Ubin.

Whether you’re watching playful otters come to life at night-time, posing for photos with the city’s iconic Merlion statue, or exploring one of the many other places to visit in Singapore, you’re sure to be having a marvellous time.

Marina Bay Sands

The Marina Bay Sands provides much more than luxurious accommodation and a 15,000m2 casino. With its incredible rooftop area and iconic architecture, it’s also one of the most beautiful places in Singapore. Experience breathtaking views from the top, spend hours browsing high-end brands in The Shoppes, or just stay cool and relax in the Infinity Pool.

Sentosa Island

Sentosa Island provides an entire buffet of attractions including Universal Studios Singapore, Tiger Sky Tower, Madame Tussauds Singapore, three beaches, an adventure park, a water adventure park, an aquarium, night shows, the Trick Eye Museum, and even a K-pop (Korean pop) hologram theatre. No wonder this island is called the fun capital of Singapore! If you’re not staying on Sentosa Island, you can get here via cable car or monorail from VivoCity.

Tiger Sky Tower

Rising 131m above sea level, Tiger Sky Tower on Sentosa Island is the tallest observation tower in Singapore. What better way is there to get great views (and photos!) of this beautiful island city? Open day and night for contrasting panoramas, make Tiger Sky Tower one of your first stops when visiting Sentosa Island.

Universal Studios Singapore

Comprised of seven distinct zones, Universal Studios Singapore is a magical place full of rides and shows based on your favourite movies and TV shows. Feel like a star walking through the Hollywood zone, have pizza for lunch in New York, then hang out with Shrek, Fiona and Donkey in Far Far Away. Prefer a different genre? Then meet dinosaurs in the Lost World zone, and jump aboard futuristic rides in Sci-Fi City.

Singapore Zoo

Combined with the Night Safari and River Safari parks, Singapore Zoo offers the ultimate wildlife encounter. Watch cheeky chimpanzees climb through the zoo’s treetops, meet some adorable red pandas, and see other animals from every corner of the world. Then come back to see what they get up to after dark (when it’s also not so hot!).

Singapore Flyer

Since 2008, this 165m Ferris wheel has been providing visitors with an incomparable bird’s-eye view of Singapore. Walk through a brief museum about the wheel’s history before hopping aboard the Singapore Flyer itself. The wheel rotates so slowly you’ll barely realise it’s moving and each 28-person capsule is air-conditioned and fully enclosed. Some are even equipped as dining cabins, but you’ll need to book ahead for this special experience.
