Travel Guide to Singapore
When in Singapore, don’t forget to...
Travel by public transport on the well-connected buses and MRT trains. Transfer seamlessly from one mode to another using a contactless smart card. If you are in town for a short period, consider getting the Singapore Tourist Pass for unlimited use.
Feast your way through an astounding variety of cuisines. Widely known as a foodie's paradise, the city has dishes to suit every palate, ranging from local multi-ethnic delights to Michelin-star menus.
Get a real taste of life in Singapore in the public housing estates outside of the city centre. You’ll find apartment blocks, restaurants, malls, markets, parks and more. Take your pick of delicious local delights at the hawker centre. Try the Toa Payoh and Ang Mo Kio neighbourhoods for starters.
Be intrigued by the convivial religious and cultural vibes in Chinatown. Aside from the myriad shopping and food options, it also offers a sight not often seen in the world – a Buddhist temple, Muslim mosque and Hindu temple situated along the same street in South Bridge Road.
Take a 10-minute boat ride and visit Pulau Ubin, the last kampong (village) in Singapore. A haunt for adventurous cyclists and nature lovers, it offers a different experience from the city. Climb the 20m-tall lookout tower in the Chek Jawa wetlands for a splendid 360-degree view.
Book a ride on a Ducktour, a remodelled WWII amphibious war vehicle that promises the best tour experience. The hour-long journey on land and in water offers a different perspective of the city skyline and Marina Bay area, while a guide offers informative snippets about Singapore’s historical and modern landmarks.
Be entranced by Singapore’s city skyline when it is all lit up at night. The best place to view it is arguably on the observation deck atop the Sands SkyPark. Afterwards, head down to ground level to catch Southeast Asia’s largest light and water show, Wonder Full, hosted nightly by Marina Bay Sands.
