Tourists love cities where there is a plethora of arts, entertainment and activities to see and take part in. There are no Big Bens or Empire State Buildings in Singapore. You’ll be hard pressed to find an attraction or monument that sums up this city. Instead, the city’s charm lies in her diversity – food selection, art choices, nightlife precincts and sightseeing, you’ll get a dose of everything here.
The following are the popular tourist attractions:
- Singapore Zoo
- Night Safari
- Jurong Bird Park
- Sentosa Island
- Marina Barrage
- Singapore Flyer
- Singapore River
Attractions such as the Singapore Flyer, the Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort and the world’s largest floating platform are located in and around the Marina Bay area. This popular lifestyle area is meant to seamlessly extend Singapore’s downtown business district. This site will ultimately be an energetic place with numerous activities and events, and a place that redefines the concept of urban living.
Here is a list of must-do’s when visiting the Marina Bay area:
Singapore City Skyline
You’ll be able to enjoy the iconic skyline of the business district all along the waterfront area. Be it from the Helix Bridge, the Marina Barrage or the promenade along the Marina Bay Sands IR, the panorama is best viewed at night or at the onset of dusk. Beautiful lights adorn the facades of tall office buildings – creating an unforgettable night scene.
The Helix Bridge
The world’s first curved double helix bridge connects the Marina Bayfront area to the Marina Bay Sands IR. At night, pedestrians can admire the lighting sequences along the bridge.
Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort
The IR’s iconic cascading towers blend excellently into the city backdrop. There is a skypark sitting atop the towers, where visitors can enjoy an unobstructed 360 degree view of the southern portion of Singapore, including the city skyline. At the Marina Bay Sands, you can dine in style, shop at high-end boutiques, try your luck at the casino and even attend concerts and theatre productions.
Gardens by the Bay
The Gardens are the epitome of “new” urban living, with designated open spaces, conservatories housing plant species from all over the world, numerous waterfront dining outlets and many opportunities for water sports.
