Top 10 locations to visit in Singapore – explore the best parts of Singapore

There are so many cool things to do in Singapore that narrowing it down to just 10 locations can be extremely difficult. So, we did it for you! Here are the top 10 locations to visit on your next trip.

1

Clarke Quay

Packed with lively bars and restaurants, boutique shops and popular nightclubs, this riverside promenade is where locals love to go after work, and tourists come for chilled vibes. Clarke Quay's scenic location lends to the chilled-out ambience, and you can find several restaurants that make the most of the views with alfresco dining near the water. Head over to the futuristic roof and you'll find lots of great shopping options.

2

Sentosa Island

This man-made island of the southern coast of Singapore was created specifically for relaxation and pleasure. The island features several beautiful beaches, a golf course, theme parks, and lots of shopping centres. Sentosa is easily reachable by road, cable car or even MTR.

Universal Studios

Located on Sentosa Island, Universal Studios Singapore has more than 20 themed zones dedicated to different movies. Zones include Far Far Away, The Lost World and Madagascar to Hollywood, to name a few. For thrill seekers, there are 2 water rides and 5 exhilarating rollercoasters to choose from. Families with young children have the kids' rollercoaster, live performances and merry-go-rounds to keep their small ones entertained.

4

Gardens by the Bay

This futuristic park, located near the Bay area, has won numerous architecture awards for its amazing design. The enormous 'Supertrees' are connected by a skywalk that overlooks the bay, gardens and dome-shaped greenhouses below. The gardens are free to visitors but if you want to explore the greenhouses or walk on the skywalk, you'll have to purchase a ticket.

5

Chinatown

Singapore's Chinatown is its own little city – the Buddhist temples, elaborate gate and shop houses all lend their own unique mystique to this little city. Chinatown is great for chopping – this is where you'll find the best souvenirs and bargain shops for clothes and electronics. In addition, there's plenty of authentic Chinese food to savour or even pack up and take back to your Singapore hotel rooms.

6

The Singapore Flyer

The largest observation wheel in the world, the Singapore Flyer is an extraordinary experience you don't want to miss, especially during sunset. Towering over the 3-storey terminal, the flyer stands an impressive 165m tall and offers spectacular views over the city-state.

7

Orchard Road

Similar to London's High Street, Orchard Road is where you will find the biggest local and international designer stores and world-class restaurants in Singapore. You could easily spend a whole day here browsing through the multitude of stores, malls, department stores, cafes and various other entertainment spots that line the road. Orchard Road is also conveniently located near several of the city's best hotels like Dorsett Singapore for example, so travelling between the malls and hotels is easy.

8

Night Safari

This night safari offers visitors the chance to view nocturnal creatures in their natural habitats, whilst also acting as a conservation centre. A designated tram takes visitors around the enclosures where over 1000 animals from Africa, Europe and Asia roam freely. See endangered species such as gazelle, wildebeest and the Himalayan griffon vulture to name a few.

9

Little India

The best part about little India is that all the must-see attractions are within walking distance of each other! From Mustafa's department mall to the many Hindu and Buddhist temples and street food centres that serve up delicious and authentic Indian food, you really shouldn't miss spending a few hours here.

Singapore Botanic Gardens

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the botanical gardens feature a tropical rainforest, spice gardens and one of the world's best collection of orchids. In addition, the rainforest is one of the few remaining pieces of the wild jungle on the island.
