Singapore is one of the most developed countries in Asia, and it is a very diverse country that attracts many tourists. In this article we take you on a journey through Singapore as you discover the beauty of its nature, cultural attractions, and unique activities to do in 24 hours.
Visit Universal Studios
The most popular attraction at Resorts World is Universal Studios. Shops, entertainment, restaurants, attractions, and roller coasters are all neatly wrapped into fictional themes based on Hollywood blockbusters. Transformers: The Ride, a next-generation thrill ride with 3D animation, and Battlestar Galactica: Human vs. Cylon, the world’s highest duelling roller coasters, are among the top attractions. Opening hours vary slightly throughout the year, so please check the website before going in.
If you’re travelling on the weekend or during Singaporean school holidays, consider getting an express pass (starting at S$40), which allows you to enter the fast lane once for each participating trip.
Visit Gardens by the Bay for some beautiful scenery
Singapore’s 21st-century botanical park is a 101-hectare dream realm of space-age biodomes, high-tech Supertrees, and quirky artworks worth S$1 billion. The Flower Dome mimics the arid Mediterranean conditions prevalent across the world, whilst the breathtaking Cloud Forest is a tropical montane extravaganza. The flowering Floral Fantasy, which launched in 2019, wonderfully interweaves floral beauty and technology, replete with a 4D experience. The OCBC Skyway connects two of the Supertrees and provides breathtaking vistas. The Supertrees light up for the Garden Rhapsody performance between 7.45pm and 8.45pm.
Explore Sentosa Island
Before it was dubbed Sentosa, this island off the southern coast of Singapore was a British military fortification. After the Japanese occupation of Singapore during World War II, the island was renamed “Sentosa”, which means “peace and tranquillity” in Malay.
Sentosa has become a beloved resort town famous for its tropical beaches, lavish hotels, and exciting activities throughout its remarkable history. Sentosa is sure to fascinate and please, whether you’re seeking for an adrenaline rush or a day of relaxation in the sun.
Visit the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple in Chinatown
This massive, five-story Buddhist temple, dedicated in 2008, houses what is said to be a tooth of the Buddha recovered in a fallen stupa (Buddhist relic monument) in Mrauk U, Myanmar. While its validity is disputed, the relic gets VIP treatment within a 320kg solid-gold stupa on the 4th storey of a dazzlingly opulent palace. More holy artefacts may be seen on the third floor Buddhism museum, while the serene rooftop garden has a massive prayer wheel inside a 10,000 Buddha Pavilion.
Tour the Southern Ridges
The Southern Ridges, which are made up of a network of parks and hills that link Kent Ridge Park to Mt Faber and the Labrador Nature Reserve, will have you walking into the rainforest without ever leaving the city. The entire course is 10 kilometres long, with the finest part running from Kent Ridge Park to Mt Faber. This 4km portion not only provides forest-canopy walkways, magnificent skyline panoramas, and the opportunity to traverse the remarkable Henderson Waves, an undulating pedestrian bridge hanging 36m above the earth.
Singapore’s design should be enjoyed, because it is not all that common to find such a beautiful metropolis. The best thing about Singapore is that it isn’t only beautiful, but that it also has many places to go and activities to partake in. That is why Singapore continues to attract so many tourists every year. You can really see for yourself how Singapore is one of the most impressive tourist destinations, as well as one of the most developed, in Asia.
