Because it isn’t just a city you can travel in one day!
Considered as one of the most progressive places in the world, Singapore has etched itself in the minds of travelers as a modern and innovative city. Singapore, a city state in Southeast Asia, has differentiated itself from neighboring countries Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Cambodia, as a hot pot of different cultures where expats from all over the world converge. But there’s more to this place than its booming economy – it is also a feast for people in pursuit of different passions.
Whether you are going to Singapore for leisure or for a quick business getaway, worry not. This place has more what meets the eye. Here are some reasons why you should visit the Lion City of Asia.
A place to explore different tastes
If you are passionate about food, Singapore is a place to treat yourself to a next-level culinary experience. Singapore is known for its hawker centers or more commonly known as food courts where you can try a wide variety of Singaporean dishes. From fried kway teow to satay and laksa, these hawker centers are must-visits for quality yet cheap food. Visit famous hawker centers Maxwell Food Centre at the foot of Club Street and Ann Siang or Tekka Centre in Little India.
Food tours are also highly popular in Singapore. Sign up for a night food tour and explore wet markets and city finds. Check out Night Out Marina Bay Tour and snack on satay and ketupat while exploring street-side food centers. Or you can time your holiday schedule to attend important food events in Singapore such as Singapore Food Festival and Singapore Restaurant Festival.
A haven for art aficionados
Craving for some artistic expression? Why not discover Singapore’s art scene and make the most of its world-class museums? Singapore’s galleries and museums are perfect places for those looking for inspiration. It is not only home to well-designed pieces but also to unique memorabilia you can take home. For art collectors, you can visit Red Dot Design Museum for interesting collectibles or Gallery & Co., National Gallery Singapore’s official store, for exclusive merchandises.
Aside from shopping for cultural keepsakes, National Gallery Singapore should also be at the top of your list. It is the region’s largest museum housing extensive Singaporean and Southeast Asian art with more than 8,000 art pieces. Little India is also an art haven featuring vibrant murals of old and new Singapore. Spend at least a day to explore its street art such as Layers by Shah Rizzal and Makara by Zero both located at Serangoon Road.
Never running of fun activities to do
If you are looking for some fun activities, Singapore has a lot in store for you. Go to Marina Bay Sands for an indulgent night-out and have dinner in one of its luxurious restaurants. Visit the world’s largest oceanarium S.E.A. Aquarium and be amazed by its more than 100,000 marine animals.
Traveling with kids? Singapore will make sure they don’t run out of things to do. Create great memories with them through fun-filled adventures and entertaining attractions. Check out The Animal Resort where they can interact with different animals and get a feel of village life or treat them to stargazing sessions at the Singapore Science Centre Observatory.
Whatever it is you’re passionate about or whatever memory you want to create, Singapore is a place you can discover. Despite its size compared to other countries, it’s a city you surely wouldn’t want to miss.
