Top 10 tourist attractions in Singapore – Taking in the Best of Singapore

Singapore is one destination that is adorned with so many modern, unique and exciting attractions. It is an island that will leave you in awe and below are the best few places to visit here.

1

Double Helix Bridge at Marina Bay

The words 'Double Helix' has an intricate origin to it for in reality the double helix is found all the way inside the nucleus of the living cell. Singapore decided to make a bridge using this concept and today it stands as a monument that boasts a sophisticated design. The structure of this bridge has a stark resemblance to the actual DNA in both appearance and meaning.

2

Marina Bay Sands SkyPark

The Marina Bay Sands SkyPark literally feels like a park all the way up in the sky. The 200-metre-high boat-shaped SkyPark is located on the top of three 55-storey towers and the scenery from up here has no parallels.

3

Gardens by the Bay

This futuristic park is huge, colourful and absolutely one of a kind and feels for many like walking through an Avatar set. Bask by the glowing super tree structures and stroll along the impressive skywalk; the feeling is magical.

4

The Singapore River

The picturesque Singapore River itself was at one time used as the main artery for commerce and trade by the British. A riverboat tour is an ideal adventure to undertake if you are keen on doing justice in viewing the colonial treasures surrounding this iconic river.

5

Clark Quay

Clark Quay is a perfect spot for some relaxation. It is beautiful and is surrounded by several buildings iconic to Singapore. Among them, you find the Anderson and Cavenagh Bridges, the Empress Place, the City Hall, Raffles Place MRT and the Victoria Theatre.

6

Statue of Samford Raffles

Samford Raffles is fondly referred to as the father of the nation. His statue is also located around Clarke Quay and if you are keen on seeing the white marble version of this statue drop by the historic Empress Place building that was built in 1865.

7

The Merlion

For the Singaporeans, the Merlion is so much more than a sculpted piece of concrete, for it emanates the very essence that Singapore is known for. The Singaporeans take pride in the story behind the Merlion and visiting this monument is an absolute must.

8

Orchard Street

Adorned with plenty of malls and high-end boutiques here you can find clothes, shoes, branded apparel and lots more; all of the highest quality. There are several hotels in the vicinity but if you are looking for online hotel deals they are often found among well-known names such as the Park Hotel Group.

9

China Town and Little India

If you are looking for knick-knacks or souvenirs, in particular, Chinatown and Little India have a rather good collection. For more Malay and Indian stuff, the best places to shop are Geylang Serai and Little India.

10

Sentosa Island

This is one of Singapore's biggest attractions and can be accessed from the mainland via cable cars and ferries. Sentosa in itself has a world of attractions and some of the finest beaches in Singapore.
