Last year, when I travelled to Singapore for a long holiday, I checked out various destinations, of which the following are my favourite ones and I believe are worth visiting. You too can refer to my recommendation below and check out these top coveted tourist spots to know about the country in great depth. Having said that, here is a list that you can refer to.
Gardens of the Bay
Located at the heart of Singapore, the Gardens of Bay is one of the most popular holiday destinations for tourists. This botanical garden sprawls over 250 acres of land and comprises three gardens namely the Bay East Garden, the Bay South Garden and the Bay Central. You can rest amidst the lush greenery in the Bay East that offers a majestic view of Singapore’s skyline which looks thrilling at dusk. It is also popular for picnics where you can enjoy a pleasant afternoon with your friends and family. The Bay South Garden is a must-visit to witness the sprawling supertree mangroves. This garden also houses an outstanding observatory of the cloud forest where tourists can witness the tallest indoor waterfall and the stunning flower dome.
The Bay Central connects the other two gardens and consists of a 3 km long waterfront walkway. If you are someone who is fond of flowers, then do visit this place during the Singapore Garden Festival that displays fascinating gardens, flower windows, orchid shows and much more. You will love the spectacular view of this mesmerising display of flowers. However, it is advisable to visit the place as early as possible since it gets filled up quite quickly during the weekends. Also, there are quite a few eateries within the garden that offer some lip-smacking dishes that you can try to satiate your cravings.
Want to have a bird-view of Singapore city? Then Singapore Flyer is the right place for you. This Asia’s largest giant observation wheel offers an amazing view of the city of Singapore from a great height. The Singapore Flyer features 28 air-conditioned capsules that can carry 28 passengers for an overwhelming half an hour journey of Singapore’s horizon. You can witness the world’s first 6-D motion ride at the advanced XD Theatre located inside the flyer. Apart from that, you can also locate several eminent places such as Marina Bay, Merlin Park and Singapore River from the Flyer. There is also an artificial rainforest at the Singapore Flyer that is adorned with streams, gushing cascades and shrubs and provides an enthralling sight.
If you want a relaxing pedicure, then you can also avail yourself of a fish-foot spa in the Singapore flyer. Besides, you can also eat at the Flyer’s special in-house restaurant and try lip-smacking dishes and refreshing drinks to your heart’s content.
