In this post, I’m going to list the places and activities that you should not miss in Singapore. There is more to Singapore than just the Merlion. Each location shows you a different side of this country. You’ll be surprised what a country half the size of Delhi can offer you. Although, if you are a chewing gum addict, you might want to think twice.
Suggestions are always welcome, and we’ll be frequently updating the list as this is just the start of this post.
An Island located on the coast of Singapore that has something for everyone. From three beaches, a variety of adventure sports, exotic hotel and spas, a golf club that will cater to all the needs of a gold enthusiast, an array of shows and attractions to choose from, it is safe to say you’ll forget what boredom feels like. When I experienced all that this island had to offer, I never wanted to leave. My favorite attractions here included ‘Lake Of Dreams’, a spectacular show performed on the seashore with laser lights, water cannons, flaming dragons, and a lot of laughter. It is sure to leave anyone enthralled. The Universal Studios is a safe haven for movie buffs where one can see movies in 4-D (there’s also a wide variety to choose from), and for K-pop fans, there is ‘K-live’, which is the first theater in Singapore that features K-pop stars.

Jurong Bird Park
As the name suggests, Jurong Bird Park is a vast bird park in Singapore, home to 400 different species of birds. If watching birds doesn’t interest you, you can also watch various interactive bird shows, where you can witness rare birds performing and even doing simple human tasks (often better than humans). You can also participate in ‘Lory Feeding’, a special experience where one can be in close proximity of these rainbow colored birds and feed them (if you’re lucky, they may also sit on your arm or shoulder. And if they like you enough, you might get a great picture out of that experience). The highlight for me was seeing the penguins. It was the first time I saw them, and I wasn’t disappointed.
Jurong Bird Park Timings: Daily from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm
Jurong Bird Park Tickets Price: Starts from $26 per adult

Night Safari in Singapore is the world’s first park for nocturnal animals. Its famous tram ride that runs through the entire course of the park certainly lives up to all its glory. And if tram rides aren’t for you, you can opt for a walking trail. There is a certain charm residing in being temporary visitors to these animal’s permanent homes, getting a chance to see them in such close proximity. If this isn’t enough animal interaction for you, there is also the ‘Night Show’, where you not only get too see amazing animal skills, you also get to interact with them. It didn’t take long for me to become enchanted with the way most of these animal’s eyes looked in the dark, their different, unusual colors making them all the more interesting. The blanket of stars that surrounds you makes the location all the more interesting. It is one of the best things to do in singapore at night.
Night Safari Timings: Daily from 5:30 pm to 11 pm
Night Safari Tickets Price: Starts from $45 per adult

Tiger Sky Tower
Tiger Sky tower is Asia’s tallest observatory tower. Feel like getting high? Tiger Sky Tower provides a panoramic view of some of Singapore’s finest locations including Sentosa and Southern Islands. The skyline one sees definitely does justice to Singapore’s beauty. In the movie, Dead Poets Society, Professor John Keating says to continuously look at things in a different way to really understand them, and he wasn’t wrong. The scenic view you can see all around you from the tower is Singapore revealing itself to you in a different light, in new colors.
Tiger Sky Tower Timings: Daily from 9 am to 9 pm
Tiger Sky Tower Tickets Price: Starts from S$18 per adult
