Must-visit places in Singapore – Touristy draws of Singapore that you are going to love

Singapore might be the ultramodern travel destination all the business people go to. However, the rise of skyscrapers hasn't done anything to tamper with the natural element of the city-state.

1

Chestnut Nature Park

Tough this is located in the midst of the building spur, Chestnut Nature Park truly is a getaway. This is the newest addition to the list of Singapore's nature parks, and there's quite a lot to explore. The park spans over 81 hectares, and it's got several biking and hiking trails.

2

Marina Bay Sands

This is a resort complex that includes a hotel, an observation deck and an infinity pool: though you can only use the pool if you are a guest of the hotel. The observation deck is one of the major vantage points in Singapore for taking in the entire city. The deck is called Marina Bay Sands Skypark Observation Deck, and guest or not, everyone's welcome there. Once up at the deck, you can see the port, Gardens By Bay, the double helix bridge and Singapore's impressive skyline. Guests are indulged with snacks and drinks from the restaurant found up there, and they can also buy a few keepsakes from the souvenir stalls.

Gardens By Bay

If you managed to catch sight of this wonderful green space from up the observation deck, then you won't be able to stop yourself going there. Quite a strong contrast to the bustle of city life, Gardens By Bay nurtures a green space that gives life to many plants. It's incredible how the designers of the garden have brought the futuristic aspect and the nature aspect together. The garden is an excellent example as to how people can improve their lifestyle with technology and new inventions without compromising nature. The main highlights of the place are Supertree Grove, the Bay East Garden and the Cloud Forest Dome.

Botanic Gardens

This is another incubator of nature that Singapore boasts. The country received its first UNESCO World Heritage nomination on account of the Botanic Gardens. At times, the city can feel like a space with an endless array of concrete buildings, but the Botanic Gardens provides tourists and residents of Singapore with a much-needed diversion. There's a walking trail that leads to the heritage trees of the garden, and they are protected with the greatest enthusiasm in order to preserve the city's mature trees.

5

Universal Studios

Located on Sentosa Island, Universal Studios Singapore is a theme park which is an inherent element of the city-state. The park is popular so much so, and its contribution to the tourism industry is substantial, you find many hotels near Universal Studios Singapore, not the least of which is Travelodge Harbourfront. The park touts 28 rides, several shows, and other attractions brought about by seven themed zones. The park also happens to be the second Universal Studios opened in Asia and the first in Southeast Asia. A visit is necessary if you want a total tourist experience in Singapore.

Singapore Zoo

The place is considered to be the best rainforest zoo in the world. The zoo is clean, and the animals are well cared for with enough habitat space. Orangutans steal the thunder of other animals by swinging high above trees snacking on fruits. Visitors can also watch animals being fed, and for a complete tour of the zoo, allow yourself at least three hours. You are also offered various safaris including the Night Safari and River Safari. If you want a personal experience with the dwellers of the zoo, you can try Singapore Zoo Breakfast with the Orangutans. Some tours provide tourists with transport from the hotel to the zoo, and they give you leave to enjoy your time at the zoo without worry.
