One of the smallest countries in the world, but don’t let that fool you for a second Singapore is mesmerizing in every mood.On the surface it, seems like just a shiny collection of high-rise apartment once you get past that,the sense of what Singapore truly is hits you hard.Here is a first timer’s travel guide to Singapore
Research and back grounding counts in as one of the most important pre-visit rules.The Pro travelling tip I would like to give is to read about the place you’re visiting and calculate your budget.Singapore is pretty much expensive as compared to other Asian countries. Singapore easily outranks renowned expensive cities like London and New York when it comes to prices.
Most first-time visitors, like myself would notice its cutting edge architecture. How can you not? Iconic structures like Marina Bay Sands, the Super trees of Gardens by the Bay, the Durian, and the ArtScience Museum were designed to grab your attention.
Lets shed some light upon the most prominent tourist attractions:
Gardens by the Bay
Gardens by the Bay is the most unquestionably popular attraction and it isn’t hard to understand why. It’s home to the iconic Super trees and two amazing conservatories — Cloud Forest and Flower Dome. If you have time for just one attraction in Singapore, then this should be it. Just google this for me and let it speak for itself.
Universal Studios needs no introduction. Located on Sentosa Island, this popular theme park is home to exhilarating rides like Jurassic Park and Transformers. If you’re traveling with kids, then you’ll probably want to allocate a day here. Otherwise, you’ll never hear the end of it.
Sentosa is an entire island dedicated to fun so it’s home to many other attractions as well like 4D theatres, the Trick Eye Museum, action parks, S.E.A. Aquarium, water sport facilities, golf courses, and beaches. There are plenty of hotels and restaurants on the island as well. Universal Studios will take up an entire day so you may want to reserve another day to explore the rest of the island.
Any brand, you name it, you’d find it at this tremendous fashion district. Orchard Road is a 2.2 kilometre-long major road in the Central Area of Singapore. Often known colloquially as Orchard, the area is a major shopping belt and tourist attraction. Spanning almost 2.2 km, Orchard Road is more famous as a swanky, tree-lined one-way boulevard flanked by distinctive shopping malls and hotels.
We all have heard and read a lot about the iconic landmark of Singapore, The Merlion. To my surprise I didn’t really read a lot about the River boat cruise that starts and ends here. I was pretty adamant that I had to hop on one of these boats to take a round trip of the Singapore River.
You buy a boat ticket from the Merlion Park and the boat takes you along the river while you witness an incredible light laser and water fountain show by the Marina Bay sands and get to watch all of the astounding architecture around.
I finished off my trip at the Changi Airport, of course. And I cannot put into words how truly amazing it was! You have to see it for yourself to believe it. They rightly say
