Top 5 Must visit places when in Singapore – Singapore Diaries-2020

  1. Gardens by the Bay

The Gardens by the Bay is a bigggg nature park containing 1500000 Plants. Located in Central Region of Singapore, adjacent to the Marina Reservoir.

Park has three waterfront gardens: Bay South Garden (in Marina South), Bay East Garden (in Marina East) and Bay Central Garden (in Downtown Core and Kallang).

Largest gardens is Bay South Garden, Its Flower Dome is the largest glass greenhouse in the world.

So I booked tickets online in advance using their website link.  This place is so huge that you will need one full day to completely visit Flower Dome, Cloud forest and Supertree Grove.  Each corner is designed and themed so beautifully that you will awestruck. Architecture and design for both the dome and Supertree Grove is astonishing. Visit this link to watch the spectacular night view of Supertree Grove.

Few pictures below from my visit:

2. Sands SkyPark Singapore

Marina Bay Sands is a resort fronting Marina Bay in Singapore,

Sky Park is located on 57th floor of Marina Bay Sands Hotel, You will have to take tower 3 for the elevator. Visit to sky park is chargeable for the visitors but free for hotel guest . At this much height you will have 325 degree view of entire Singapore skyline. Such a Beautiful view from above that you can spend good amount of time looking around all the different attractions .

There are 2 level on skypark, 2nd deck is connected with the bar of hotel. I visited skypark late in the afternoon so i stayed there for 2 hours to enjoy the supreme sunset. Also the views are different during the day and night. Night views are breathtaking too as everything will be lighted up and you can have aerial view of Gardens by the Bay. During day time also you will have magnificent views. You can plan to visit around evening before sunset you can enjoy the Sunset + Daylight view + Night view. 

Sky Park is a must do thing when you visit Singapore. Either you can visit hotel as guest or you can book tickets for skypark entry. Below few pictures from my visit. Another thing if you are going as a visitor you won’t find much to eat there, There is a small vendor serving limited light snacks,coffee and some drinks so you can plan accordingly.

3. Universal Studios Singapore

Must Must Must…. Visit place.

So it was my 1st visit any kind of theme park and i really loved it. Universal Studios Singapore is a theme based park situated on Sentosa Island, Singapore. Park is surrounded by lagoon.

It has multiple rides of different difficulty level like for small kids, teenagers ,adults everyone will have something amusing to try. You will find different themes in different zones like Sci-Fi City, Ancient Egypt, Madagascar etc. 

In addition to multiple rides it has other hollywood themed attractions, entertainment show, Gift Shops , few restaurants for refreshments. It’s very difficult to sum up entire theme park experience in words. Actually i can write a full long blog on this experience, It’s a world class park, I am putting some picture below from my experience. Please leave your comments below to share you experience as well.

Tickets for Theme park are also available online on there official website link, Pre booking is good to avoid standing in queues as it will usually be a crowded place. Also you can take priority pass/ticket with little extra cost, Which will help you to save your time by getting priority entrance almost everywhere. You will not have to wait or stand on queue for your turn.

4. S.E.A Aquarium

The Marine Life Park in Singapore is also one of the famous attractions. There are different areas you can explore here one is SEA aquarium and other is Adventure Cove Waterpark. I personally planned to only visit SEA aquarium but both the places have their equal charm.

SEA Aquarium. This aquarium being home to more than 100,000 marine animals with different species, a different habitat is mind blowing experience.  Each creature is as fascinating as the next. Certain areas inside the aquarium are built with such a huge glass walls and floorings that you will feel inside the ocean itself. There quite much to walk inside so in case of differently abled or old age you can opt for wheelchair as well.                                                                                                                                                                             This will surely become an unforgettable experience of life

Adventure Cove Waterpark on other hand is an aquatic park with multiple rides and pools. Includes Water Slides , some thrilling splash washout, pipeline slide and other fun activities for kids. Also you can enjoy Snorkeling amongst reefs and fish of four different species. 

Apart from all this there are some very good ocean restaurants and gift shops that you can explore. In case you are planning to cover both SEA Aquarium and Adventure cove waterpark in one day i suggest you to start your day bit early so you can cover everything. Due to COVID there might be some change in there operational hours/ days which you can check based on your dates of travel.

Sentosa Island

Sentosa Island is a major attraction of Singapore both Universal studio and SEA Aquarium are situated on Sentosa island itself. This island is connected to the city by road as well as by cable car. It highly suggested to take cable car as it would be one of the wonderful experience, you will get an entire aerial view of Sentosa island and Singapore skyline. To completely explore Sentosa Island you should keep good 2 to 3 days time. 

Singapore cable car : It has 3 three main stations, namely Mount Faber Station at the peak of Mount Faber, the HarbourFront Station at HarbourFront and the Sentosa Station at Imbiah Sentosa. Cable car is connected Sky network that you can opt for scenic experience. While selecting ticket you can go for cable car sky pass, its a value add as it will allow you to travel on both Mount Faber line and Santosa Line.

5. Merlion 

Merlion Park is a Singapore’s major attraction located in the Downtown Core district of Singapore. The Merlion statue is a lion’s head with the body of a fish that is commonly used as a symbol of Singapore. Two Merlion statues are located in this park one is father Melion another is cub. Both Tall & Cub Merlion structure spouts water from its mouth. 

This is another place where you can visit in night rather than day, It’s very peaceful and calm in the night also you will get to see totally lighted version of Marina Bay. (Image Below). During day you will find this place crowded with lots of people clicking pictures. There are multiple eating places here so you can spend good amount of time.
