Never-ending fun and unlimited food galore
Lion City sits at the world’s crossroads on the southern tip of the Malaysia peninsula. With roughly the same size as Thailand’s Phuket, Singapore is a city of incredible diversity. Despite the racial and cultural diversity of the Chinese, Indian, Malaysian and other residences, Singaporeans live amicably in the same tidy, orderly and vibrant city. The metropolis is also a trade hub and a leading tourism destination. Looking for world-class entertainment? Sentosa Island offers a full range of facilities including a grand theatre, zoo, exquisite restaurants, leading brand fashion boutiques, a casino and more. There’s something for everyone.
For those seeking gastronomic adventures, do not miss Singapore’s famous chicken rice, laksa, chilli crab and endless list of savoury dishes from the delicacy districts of Orchard, China Town, Little India and many more. Travelling, shopping and dining are all close at hand. Even if you have been to Singapore before, there’s always something new to do on your next visit.
Must-see Highlights and Activities
You cannot say you have been to Singapore without a picture with Merlion – a mythical creature with the body of a fish and the head of a lion – the symbol of the city. Ride the Singapore Flyer at Marina Bay that lifts you as high as 165 metres above ground. Enjoy the magnificent view of the city, the sea and the stretching skyline as far as Malaysia and Indonesia. If you believe in fortune, check-in at the Fountain of Wealth and circle around the fountain three times beneath the spray and beautiful laser performance. And don’t forget to snap a photo with the statue of Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles, the founder of Singapore who brought Lion City to life.
Universal Studios Singapore
For those with children, a visit to Universal Studios Singapore is recommended, where you will find the second biggest universal theme park in Asia. Here you will find many activities, such as a ride on the world’s tallest pair of dueling roller coasters, that are based on the popular television series. Each zone is based on a blockbuster movie or a television show, featuring their own unique attractions, character appearances, dining and shopping areas such as Madagascar and Shrek. There are also scenes from Jurassic Park and Hollywood Boulevard for more unmissable photo opportunities.
Resorts World Sentosa
This latest and extensive entertainment complex features Universal Studios Singapore, Lake of Dreams water display, Luxury Fashion Galleria, restaurants, bars, hotels, a casino, and more. If that is not enough, head towards Orchard road for even more shopping delight.
Marina Bay Sands
Located in the heart of the business district, Marina Bay Sands’ ArtScience Museum showcases multi-media exhibitions from around the world within its 21 galleries spread over 3 floors and 50,000 sqft, housed inside the extraordinary lotus-shaped building.
Or enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime experience at Sands SkyPark, the largest rooftop park and the longest elevated swimming pool in the world.
Join the cuddly penguins and their 9,000 winged friends from over 600 species at Jurong Bird Park and be part of the show. For a little adventure, head to the Night Safari. Put on your best boots and trek through rainforests of Southeast Asia, meadows of South America and grasslands of Savanna, while encountering over 900 creatures from 135 different species. Underwater World never fails to amaze visitors (especially kids) with its crystal clear 83m-long underwater tunnel that let’s you explore a vast array of marine life face to face.
Singaporean cuisine is a blend of Chinese, Malaysian and Indian influences. Walk down the street and explore the island from Chinatown to Orchard Road, enjoying fresh seafood with an ocean view on Boat Quay or spice things up with Singaporean-Indian fusion in Little India.
Not-to-be-missed dishes include chilli crab, which comes with a sweet chilli sauce and takes the most place on billboards around Singapore. Hainanian chicken rice is selected Malay chicken laid on a bed of rice and served with a mildly aromatic dipping sauce. Laksa, similar to a northern Thai dish, is noodle soup with a blend of herbs and spices such as chilli, turmeric, ginger, garlic, shallot, galangal and dried salted prawn cooked in a wok along with coconut milk and meat. Satay is marinated skewered and grilled meat, typically beef, chicken or lamb, served with rice cake, cucumber relish and thick peanut sauce. Kaya toast is sweet kaya jam and butter slapped between crispy toasted bread to make a perfect light breakfast for Singaporeans.
