Welcome to Singapore

With its space-age architecture, busy shopping malls, and skyscraper-lined waterfront, Singapore is one of Asia’s most modern cities, but there’s more to the city than its contemporary draws. Discover Singapore’s multi-cultural heritage in the Arab Quarter and Little India, stroll the illuminated waterfront of Marina Bay, tuck into tasty street food at the Chinatown night market, then escape the urban sprawl for the Botanic Gardens and the Gardens By the Bay. A short cable car ride away, Sentosa Island has something for the whole family, with theme parks, amusement rides, and plenty of beachfront entertainment.

Top 10 attractions in Singapore

#1
Singapore Flyer

Singapore Flyer

star-4.51,269
All the major world cities seem to have a big wheel these days, and Singapore is no exception. Lifting you 540 feet (165 meters) into the air, the Singapore Flyer is Asia’s largest observation wheel, providing amazing panoramic views of the city, the sea, and the surrounds from one of 28 capsules.More
#2
Merlion Park

Merlion Park

star-4.52,544
A Singapore landmark, Merlion Park is named for its centerpiece, the Merlion statue, which spouts water into Marina Bay. With the head of a lion and the body of a fish, the Merlion is the national icon of Singapore. The park is also popular with locals, who come here to play and relax along the waterfront.More
#3
Clarke Quay

Clarke Quay

star-51,270
Lining the Singapore River, the renovated riverside warehouses and “godown” shophouses of historic Clarke Quay comprise one of Singapore’s major wining and dining precincts. Now pedestrianized and home to shops, restaurants, nightclubs, river cruise bumboats, and floating cafés, Clarke Quay is a good place to look for varied cuisines—from Italian to brewhouse to fine French—and relaxed outdoor bars with riverfront views. It’s also where you’ll find Singapore’s wild Reverse Bungy adventure ride.More
#4
Little India

Little India

star-52,853
For subcontinental color, cuisine, and atmosphere, head to Singapore’s Little India, one of the island’s most vibrant districts. Shops, restaurants, street vendors, and colorful Hindu temples line the streets of Little India, making it an excellent place to take a walk. The culture and community center of Little India, Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple is the neighborhood’s most important Hindu Temple, dedicated to the goddess Kali.More

Helix Bridge

Helix Bridge

star-583
From New York to San Francisco, big cities are known for their beautiful bridges. But perhaps none are as impressive as Singapore’s Helix Bridge. Originally known at the Double Helix Bridge, this scenic footbridge is encased with twisting metal tubes and shimmering lights reminiscent of DNA strands. Helix was opened in April 2010, but the popular walkway was not accessible to travelers until July of that year. Today, visitors can wander the steel encased path linking Marina South and Marina Centre, while staring out over a pristine bay bathed in brilliant lights. Travelers love to walk the path in the early daylight hours, or late at night, when the area proves most picturesque.More
#6
Esplanade–Theatres on the Bay

Esplanade–Theatres on the Bay

star-5273
Singapore’s premier performance venue overlooks the super-sleek Marina Bay Waterfront. Esplanade-Theatres on the Bay consists of a 1,600-seat concert hall and 2,000-seat theater. The complex has waterfront and open-air venues and hosts more than 3,000 performances annually.More
#7
Singapore Zoo

Singapore Zoo

star-4.51,963
Singapore Zoo isn’t your typical menagerie; inside, more than 300 species of birds, reptiles, and mammals roam in close approximations of their natural habitats. Visitors to the lush jungle park can observe an abundance of wildlife, including lions, white tigers, giraffes, flying foxes, sea lions, and Komodo dragons.More
#8
Supertree Grove at Gardens by the Bay

Supertree Grove at Gardens by the Bay

star-5895
The Supertree Grove at Gardens by the Bay is a futuristic grove of man-made, treelike vertical gardens that mimic the function of real trees. A top Singapore sight and architectural wonder that’s home to more than 160,000 plants, the Supertree Grove offers shade during the day, a light-and-sound spectacular at night, and panoramic city and garden views.More
#9
Night Safari at Singapore Zoo

Night Safari at Singapore Zoo

star-4.5304
The legendary Night Safari at Singapore Zoo goes above and beyond the typical zoo experience. Enhanced by the subtle glow of moonlight, the jungle comes to life each night for visitors to see animals exploring their free-roaming environments, designed to replicate the Himalayan foothills, Southeast Asian rain forest, and Indian subcontinent.More
#10
St. John’s Island

St. John’s Island

star-53
With a sinister past as a quarantine center, political prison, and drug rehab operation, St. John’s Island remains one of the quieter of Singapore’s outlying islands, with not so much as a café or a shop. Spend the night in bungalows, enjoy the island’s cat population, or fish from the pier or off the beach.More

All about Singapore

When to visit

Scorching sunshine and frequent showers are par for the course in Singapore, where umbrellas are used to protect locals from both elements. Summer is the driest period and brings events such as the Singapore Food Festival, the Great Singapore Sale, and National Day. To see Singapore's legendary celebrations in full swing, visit during Chinese New Year.
