Singapore – Things to do

Singapore Attractions

You’ll be mesmerised by this island city-state and home of the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple. One minute you’ll walk through serene and manicured gardens where locals practice the elegant art of Tai Chi, the next, you’ll be pacing an ultra-modern metropolis where gilded shrines run shoulders with ultra-modern skyscrapers. There’s at least one side of this enthralling place that will grab your attention.

Chinatown Singapore

Chinatown and Little India

The spices and sensations of India and China await you – take a stroll down Serangoon Road and be enticed by the smells, colours and textures of authentic Indian cuisine and crafts. Try on a silk sari in the Little India Arcade, popping in for a battery recharging coconut ladoo before perusing the silverware. In Chinatown, visit the majestic Thian Hock Keng – the oldest Chinese temple in Singapore and sample Hainanese chicken rice, a dish adapted from early Chinese residents.

Natural spaces

You might not expect it from a huge city, but Singapore holidays present ample opportunities for exploring the natural world and its species. At Gardens by the Bay, be wowed by the manmade trees and lose yourself in a sea of colour in the Flower Dome, the world’s largest glass greenhouse. Out of town, follow walking trails and cross tree top bridges before getting close to crocodiles, wild boar and monkeys in nature reserves.
