5 top tourist attractions in Singapore- There’s always something to sing home about!

Singapore has always been the epitome of metropolitan industriousness and a marvellous contributor of ingenious feats of architecture and design. The world has watched as it unveiled one wonder after another across a variety of fields and today, we will show you what we think is the top 5!

1

Marina Bay Sands

Formerly ranked as the most expensive building in the world with a cool price tag of $5.7 billion, the Marina Bay Sands is now known the world over for its distinctive architectural design and dominating presence in the Singaporean skyline. A true multi-tasker, this building prides itself in maintaining a luxury hotel with 2561 rooms, a 120,000 square metre convention centre (one of the largest in Asia), a theatre, a museum as well as an indoor skating rink fully equipped with synthetic ice. A true marvel of the modern world!

2

Singapore Botanic Gardens

If you are a fan of lush green fields, unique bark patterns, cleverly adapted leave structures and truly odd wonders of the plant world then the Singapore Botanic Gardens is the place for you! With over 60, 000 unique species of plants and animals that foray amongst them. Enjoy a peaceful stroll through their winding paths as you take in the intricate natural adaptations of these beautiful plants. If you happen to be travelling on a budget during a stopover in Singapore, then you are in luck. This is a free to visit park for the most part with only one section containing a collection of stunning orchids requiring a payment. This makes it the perfect place for anyone, whether you are staying at the best luxury hotel in Singapore or simply passing through.

Gardens by the Bay

This unique installation is a real representation of the ingenuity and Avant Garde approach taken in Singapore when it comes to creating attractions for the benefit of its citizens as well as to encourage an increase of incoming tourists. Built on reclaimed land, this small island is home to over 12 gargantuan electric trees that are of the likeness of ancient trees from a mystical era long forgotten. These structures create a hybrid between an art installation and horticultural grounds for tropical plants within these tree-like structures that measure up 50 meters!

4

Raffles Hotel

If you are looking for a dash of the past with a heavy dose of class and sophistication during your stay, then you would find yourself drawn like a moth to the ever-burning flame that is the Raffles Hotel. One of the most recognizable institutions in the city, it may not be an understatement to say that it has seen its fair share of history. Being established in 1887, it was initially a holiday home that quickly was converted into a hotel catering to foreign dignitaries, cultural icons and celebrities the world over. Having survived Japanese occupation as well as many major management changes it has now undergone a rigorous renovation that allows its light to shine for, hopefully, another 100 years!

5

Clarke Quay

Another blast from the past, the Clarke Quay is still one of the most popular locations in Singapore. With a dazzling array of neon lights and multicoloured buildings holding bars, restaurants and clubs it is easily the most energetic location in the city where people will gather to spend their nights in some merriment and drink! From the commercial hub in the 19th century to the epicentre of nightlife the transition has not marred the charm of this beautiful neighbourhood. The best part is that it is conveniently located to all the nearest hotels such as the Naumi Hotel Singapore and many more!
