Planning to book a Singapore trip package from India? We’ve come up with a list of the 15 best things to do in Singapore for your next trip!

Singapore may be one of the world’s most expensive cities, but it has a long list of other accolades: clean, well-planned, and one of the most entertaining. The Lion City boasts the world’s largest rooftop infinity pool, the world’s first nocturnal animal safari park, centuries-old temples, and, of course, some of the world’s best food.

There are also beautiful gardens, stunning architecture, world-class entertainment venues, and bustling commercial areas. The city-state offers an intriguing fusion of old and new, historic as well as modern. Most of the attractions have reopened successfully since the outbreak, adopting Singapore’s safe management standards. Continue reading for the 15 best things to do in Singapore.

Gardens By the Bay

This is a well-deservedly popular tourist destination in Singapore. The variety of flora on show, as well as the inventive ways in which they are displayed, is breathtaking.

The Cloud Forest, located in one section of the conservatory, is modeled after the cool-moist ecosystem of the tropical highlands. It contains a treetop promenade and a 114-foot indoor waterfall that is frequently photographed.

National Gallery Singapore

National Gallery Singapore is the largest public collection of modern art in Southeast Asia, with over 9,000 works. It’s set between two stunning national landmarks: City Hall and the former Supreme Court of the United States. Some tourists spend a half-day (or longer) exploring the museum’s many galleries. Consider going on a weekday and purchasing your tickets in advance online to avoid lineups.

Kampong Glam

Do you consider yourself a hipster? Or are you a devout Muslim? Do you prefer avant-garde contemporary art or traditional Arab crafts? Do you only want to take a picture for Instagram or do you want to understand more about this historic district, from its red-light past to its religious significance? Or maybe you just want a slice of the legendary Rich & Good Cake Shop’s delectable kaya swiss roll?

This charmingly unique enclave is for you if you answered yes to any of these questions. The Muslim sector of Singapore dates from the 1800s, although it has evolved, integrating religious and historical elements with a contemporary perspective on the city-state.

Jewel Changi Airport

It may seem strange to advise passengers to spend time in an airport, but Jewel Changi is no ordinary airport. The transportation hub also includes a Moshe Safdie-designed shopping, dining, and entertainment complex with a natural theme.

The Rain Vortex, a seven-story-tall indoor waterfall; an indoor forest with suspended walkways; and approximately 300 stores are among the project’s features. For layover travellers, this is a game-changer. Because it’s so popular (and so worth your time), 20 airlines will allow you to check in a full 24 hours ahead of time merely to make the most of your time inside.

The Intan

The Intan is a private residence that holds one of Singapore’s most significant Peranakan artifact collections. Alvin Yapp has spent more than 30 years collecting 1,500 artifacts from Peranakan culture, including kasut manek (ornate beaded slippers used by Straits Chinese women) and beautiful floral-patterned enamel tiffin baskets.

Yapp’s postwar home is a labor of love, as evidenced by his meticulous arrangement of every square inch. Visits must be scheduled in advance.

Pulau Ubin

Pulau Ubin

The granite quarries on this island were originally well-known. Residents began to leave as they closed down in the 1970s and jobs diminished. The island now has less than 50 residents who have opted to stay with the old way of life. That is also why people like to come here.

Stepping onto Pulau Ubin is like stepping back into the past of Singapore. Even getting there is a trip back in time: a 10-minute bumboat cruise from Changi Point Ferry Terminal. This is a worthwhile day excursion for anyone who wants to explore a different era in Singapore’s history or experience its wild side, even if they are short on funds.

Merlion Park

The Merlion statue, a half-fish, half-lion stone carving that sprays water into Marina Bay, is located on this promenade overlooking Marina Bay. The fish represents Singapore’s beginnings as a fishing town, while the lion head refers to Singapura, which is Malay for “Lion City.” It was built in 1972 and is now one of the most popular tourist sites in the country, so prepare ahead.

Marina Bay Sands

This one is for the rich and famous: if you have enough cash to splash, you can do anything from eating at a Michelin-starred restaurant to enjoying the view from the SkyPark.

Perhaps Singapore’s most recognizable structure is the huge Moshe Safdie-designed mall, casino, convention center, and hotel. The ArtScience Museum, Singapore’s most forward-thinking, and the 57-story-high SkyPark, Singapore’s greatest, are both must-sees.

Haw Par Villa

This eight-acre outdoor art park is odd yet a feast for the eyes, regardless of whether it is manicured or untamed. It was founded in the 1930s by Tiger Balm inventor and philanthropist Aw Boon Haw, who commissioned over 1,000 intricate sculptures and dioramas to educate traditional Chinese values before the arrival of television and the Internet.

It was popular and bustling back then, but that has changed with time. And, while it has lost some of its shine, this simply adds to its attractiveness and ‘raw’ feel—what you get here is an unadulterated, in-your-face lesson on Chinese principles and culture that isn’t hidden behind velvet ropes or glass panels, and isn’t clogged with visitors.

St. Andrew’s Cathedral

This massive, wedding-cake-like monument in the heart of Singapore’s Civic District is one of the area’s oldest and most imposing structures, with its Neo-Gothic design topped by a simple spire.

The structure is surrounded by park grounds, making it stand out as a haven in the middle of a bustling city. This is Singapore’s largest cathedral, as well as the country’s oldest Anglican church. It’s a treasure trove for history, culture, and architecture enthusiasts.

Thian Hock Keng

Thian Hock Keng Temple, also known as Tianfu Temple, is the oldest Buddhist temple in Singapore. The intricate construction was constructed without the use of a single nail in the traditional southern Chinese style. With its dragon and phoenix sculptures and Fujian-style broken porcelain roof ridges, it’s now entirely repaired and a feast for the eyes.

Most portions of the temple prohibit photography, and if you try to take one, you’ll almost certainly get caught. So you’ll simply have to hold on to those memories. Don’t go if you can’t keep your camera in your purse. This is not a photo-op. Although admission is free, it is never overcrowded.


Sentosa Singapore
Sentosa Singapore

Sentosa Island, a 1,236-acre island resort off Singapore’s southern coast, is home to prominent tourist attractions such as Universal Studios Singapore and the S.E.A. Aquarium. Singaporeans and visitors from around the world come to enjoy the beaches, zip line at Mega Adventure Park, shop at the enormous Luxury Fashion Galleria, and more.

Golf is also popular here, with two award-winning courses at the Sentosa Golf Club. In short, this island is a tourist machine, fine-tuned to appeal to a wide spectrum of people—except for those looking for an off-the-beaten-path holiday.

The Southern Ridges

Mount Faber Park, Telok Blangah Hill, HortPark, Kent Slope Park, and Labrador Nature Reserve are all connected by the Southern Ridges, a 6.2-mile recreational trail that runs along Singapore’s southern ridge. It’s well-built and manicured, as is everything in Singapore.

The scenery varies from jungle-like tree canopies to exotic flora and animals to architecturally stunning walkways. If you don’t feel like walking the entire five miles, stop by Henderson Waves, a 256-foot-high timber deck. It’s Singapore’s highest pedestrian bridge, and photographers admire it for its undulating curves.

Night Safari

Night Safari Singapore

This is the world’s first and most popular safari park dedicated to night creatures. It is run by the same company that administers the popular Singapore Zoo. The 86-acre bio reserve is home to 2,500 animals representing 130 different species, with more than a third of them being endangered. Guests can take a complimentary guided tram ride around the park.

The tour lasts roughly 40 minutes and takes you through seven different geographical areas, although specific animal sightings are never guaranteed. You can watch live tiger feedings on the weekends with reservations. If you have the ability, take a walk on some of the trails. It will keep you away from the tourist crowds and give you a better chance of seeing reserved animals.

Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay

15 best things to do in Singapore
Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, Singapore

The Esplanade is Singapore’s finest art facility, with a spectacular state-of-the-art concert hall, a horseshoe-shaped theatre with an orchestra pit, a more intimate recital studio for chamber music and jazz concerts, an outdoor theatre, and an open-air concert space among its many performance venues.

The structure is a work of art (it’s the face of Singapore’s five-cent coins). The spiky exterior of the dome has given it the moniker “durian,” after the divisive Southeast Asian fruit. Anyone interested in architecture should stop over for an excellent photo opportunity.
