10 Top Tourist Attractions in Singapore (with Map & Photos)

Singapore is one of the great cities of the world, with its blend of Asian and European cultures. Founded as a British trading colony in 1819, since independence it has become one of the world’s most prosperous city states and boasts one of the world’s busiest ports.

Graceful colonial buildings co-exist alongside centuries-old street markets and modern high-rises. Though the government can be strict with residents and visitors who misbehave, travelers who follow the rules can’t help but be fascinated by this multi-cultural city. An overview of the top tourist attractions in Singapore:

10. Marina Bay Sands


If construction costs are a traveler’s bag, then they’ll delight in seeing the Marina Bay Sands, a resort that cost US$5.7 billion to build, making it the world’s most expensive building when it opened in 2010. The Marina Bay Sands is an integrated resort that has it all: a luxury hotel, restaurants, an endless collection of shops, a convention center that is one of the largest in Asia, theater, an ArtScience Museum and other entertainment centers. It also has an indoor skating rink made with synthetic ice.

9. Singapore Flyer


The Singapore Flyer is a giant Ferris wheel, only with benefits, that only start with the stunning views below. Cars hold up to 28 people as they circle above the city. When it opened in 2008, it was the highest Ferris wheel in the world, reaching 165 meters (541 feet) up into the Singaporean sky. With advance notice, the Flyer can accommodate disabled guests in wheelchairs. Located on Marina Bay, the Flyer’s terminal has three floors of restaurants, shops and other services.

8. Buddha Tooth Relic Temple

The Chinese build temples to a lot of gods and other things, but the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple is one of the more unusual. In the late 1980s when a Buddhist temple was first proposed for Singapore’s Chinatown, it was supposed to become a more traditional temple. Somewhere along the line it became the Tooth Relic Temple, a home for a tooth relic from Buddha. The temple, located in central Chinatown, also features other arts and culture of Singaporean Buddhists.

7. Night Safari


Travelers who enjoy nightlife but are tired of the club scene should head over to Night Safari where nocturnal, not party, animals are on display. Since it opened in 1984, it is one of Singapore’s top attractions, with more than one million people annually enjoying a tram ride through seven of the world’s geographic regions. Visitors also can take a trail walk to learn more about animal habits while another section features a show on the organization’s work to preserve threatened species through captive breeding programs. Three restaurants features menus and entertainment that reflect life in the jungle or rainforest.

6. Singapore Botanic Gardens


Travelers on a budget will appreciate the Singapore Botanic Gardens as most of the gardens are free; there is only a charge for the National Orchid Garden, the most visited section of the garden. The garden contains more than 60,000 species of plants and animals, and is home to the world’s first children’s garden. Past visitors rave about the tropical greenery of the gardens.

5. Gardens by the Bay


Gardens by the Bay is a recent addition to Singapore’s tourist attractions, but is one that gardeners won’t want to miss visiting. Open less than a decade, Gardens by the Bay is built on reclaimed land in central Singapore. It consists of three gardens: Bay Central, a garden with a waterfront walk that will eventually connect the other two gardens; Bay East, which is opening in phases as sections are completed, and Bay South, the largest garden, which showcases tropical horticulture and includes tree-like structures up to 50 meters (160 feet) high that dominate the Gardens’ landscape.

4. Raffles Hotel

Raffles Hotel, with its graceful colonial style, is the face of Singapore. Since it opened in 1887, it quickly became THE place to stay in Singapore, with writers Rudyard Kipling, Somerset Maugham and Ernest Hemingway, among others, adding to its fame. This epitome of luxury boasts 15 restaurants and bars, including the Long Bar where the cocktail Singapore Sling was invented. The Raffles Hotel is legendary the world over, down to the uniformed Sikh doormen who introduce guests to this bit of Southeast Asian history. The lobby of the main building is open to the public while the hotel museum is hidden away on the 3rd floor.

3. Clarke Quay


Clarke Quay is another part of Singapore’s past that is still a happening place today. One of the key tourist attractions in Singapore, the quay, at the mouth of the Singapore River, was the city’s hub of commerce in the late 19th century. It still hustles and bustles today, but with a different kind of commerce: trendy restaurants, unique boutiques, pushcart vendors and more, all of which blend Asian and European influences. Once a market, always a market, except at night when Clarke Quay teems with chic nightspots.

2. Resorts World Sentosa

Resorts World Sentosa is a Singaporean destination unto itself. Located on an island off Singapore’s south coast, the property features hotels, restaurants, a casino, theme parks – in short, something for everyone no matter how old they are. With this location, attractions obviously center around the sea: Marine Life Park, Dolphin Island, a water park and an aquarium. Other attractions include Universal Studios Singapore and nightly entertainment. The casino offers a variety of table games sand 2,400 slot machines; be forewarned, it does enforce a dress code. The resort offers more than 60 dining options for hungry guests.

1. Orchard Road


Orchard Road is the main shopping street of Singapore, regularly frequented by the locals as well as foreign tourists. Named after the fruit orchards that the road led to, Orchard Road is flanked by malls, numerous upmarket restaurants, coffee chains, cafés, nightclubs and hotels. It is also the site of the official residence of the President of Singapore, the Istana. The Christmas decorations along Orchard are famous and entirely over the top, with reindeers cavorting through palm trees and gingerbread houses topped with fake snow.

Things to Do in Singapore

Singapore Botanic Gardens and Tiong Bahru


Singapore has earned praise for its handling of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Despite initial missteps such as allowing transmission to spread through migrant worker dormitories, the city-state’s approach has been efficient in controlling the outbreak. Authorities now have begun allowing limited travel tourism, which they banned early in the outbreak. In this guide, we’re providing a detailed look at Singapore’s travel restrictions with a focus on leisure travel. We’ll let you know just who is allowed to visit and what is required both pre-departure and on arrival. In the second half of the guide, we profile some fantastic sightseeing spots you won’t want to miss if and when you do have a chance to visit. Singapore is a city known for its great food, futuristic architecture, and all-around family-friendly atmosphere. Come discover the Garden City at the crossroads of the world.

When SARS-CoV-2 first emerged in Wuhan, China late in 2019, few people anticipated the massive disruptions to everyday life the virus would cause around the world. Travel and tourism have been particularly hard hit. The number of people taking vacations abroad plunged after governments rushed to close their international borders. By April 1, 2020, a majority of countries had either barred travelers from high-risk locations or closed themselves off entirely. Fortunately, some places have managed to implement robust testing and tracing protocols, managing to more or less bring the virus under control. The international travel picture today is much improved. Despite new burdens such as pre-departure testing and quarantine-on-arrival, it is possible to travel to a fair number of international destinations. Depending on where you’re based, Singapore may be on that list.


A quick disclaimer. Singaporean authorities have made clear they intend to continually reassess the country’s travel policies. The information we’re providing is for reference only. All travelers are advised to check the latest announcements published in official government channels prior to finalizing travel decisions. While we make every effort to ensure we’re providing accurate and timely information, conditions may have changed since this guide was written. Always double-check the latest official information. Better to be safe than sorry.

Who can travel to Singapore for tourism?

At the time of writing, travelers from Brunei Darussalam, Mainland China (except Jiangsu Province), and New Zealand are able to enter Singapore for short-term visits that include tourism and recreational travel. Travelers from other locations continue to have to wait for a further relaxation of travel restrictions.

Who else can travel to Singapore?

In principle, Singapore nationals are allowed to return from anywhere in the world. The Singapore government also allows foreign nationals who hold a valid Long-Term Pass issued by Singapore’s Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) to enter Singapore. However, pass-holders must obtain explicit permission from a relevant government agency prior to departure. Depending on where they’re returning from, travelers may be required to undergo either self-isolation at home or quarantine in a designated facility.

All long-term pass holders or short-term visitors who traveled to Myanmar (including transit) any time during the 21 days prior to their arrival are no longer allowed to enter Singapore. Travelers who have visited Australia or Indonesia within 21 days of their scheduled must have proof of a negative COVID-19 test result issued no more than 72 hours before departure if traveling from Australia or no more than 48 hours before departure if traveling from Indonesia. Upon arrival, travelers with a recent travel history to either location must undergo a 14-day quarantine in a designated facility and multiple additional COVID-19 tests while in quarantine. All travelers (including Singaporean nationals) are obliged to undergo testing for COVID-19 upon arrival in Singapore.

What about business-related travel?

Business travelers from Brunei Darussalam and some parts of Mainland* China are permitted to enter Singapore provided they fulfill certain criteria. Current criteria for business travelers include being sponsored by a domestic company or government agency in Singapore that must apply for approval on the traveler’s behalf. Business travelers are not allowed to leave the jurisdiction from where they applied to travel to Singapore within 14 days of their scheduled departure. They must also undergo a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test for COVID-19 usually between 48 and 72 hours prior to departure. Upon arrival in Singapore, business travelers must undergo additional testing, can only engage in approved, business-related activities, and are required to abide by all regulations regarding pandemic prevention. * = Chongqing, Guangdong, Jiangsu, Shanghai, Tianjin, and Zhejiang

What requirements are in place for tourism-related travel?

As noted above, only travelers from Brunei Darussalam, Mainland China (except Jiangsu Province), and New Zealand are permitted to travel to Singapore for short-term recreational travel. Anyone from these locations (including persons holding passports issued by a third country) who wants to visit Singapore for tourism must submit an application for an “Air Travel Pass” at least 7 days and no more than 30 days prior to their intended date of arrival. Singaporean nationals, lawful permanent residents, and Long-Term Pass holders are not required to apply for an Air Travel Pass. All travelers must remain within one of these countries / regions during the 21 consecutive days prior to their scheduled departure for Singapore and must present their Air Travel Pass when boarding Singapore-bound flights. Prospective travelers from Hong Kong SAR hoping to travel to Singapore should monitor announcements regarding the resumption of the HK-Singapore Air Travel Bubble.

Upon arrival, all travelers (regardless of origin) must, at their own expense, undergo testing for COVID-19 and self-isolate in a suitable, non-residential accommodation while awaiting their results. Confirmation of a negative result is required before a person can be released from self-isolation and permitted to freely move about in Singapore. NOTE: If you hold a passport that requires a visa for travel to Singapore, you must obtain a visa separately. An Air Travel Pass is NOT a substitute for a visa.

What about contact tracing?

Singapore uses a mobile application for contact tracing called “TraceTogether.” All travelers must install this app and use it to register their personal information prior to boarding flights bound for Singapore. Airline staff are instructed to verify a correctly set up app during airport check-in. Travelers must use TraceTogether throughout their stay in Singapore and are required to retain the app and all associated data for 14 consecutive days after leaving Singapore. Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 must upload their TraceTogether app data if requested by the Singapore Ministry of Health.

How can you travel to Singapore for tourism?

If you are in Brunei Darussalam, Mainland China, or New Zealand, you should apply for an Air Travel Pass online. The process is free and takes approximately 3 business days. You can do this before or after booking travel tickets; however, you will want to verify your airline’s cancellation policies in the event your Air Travel Pass application is rejected. Once you receive approval, follow the instructions given to you and comply with all pre-departure requirements. If possible, you should prepay and book your post-arrival COVID-19 test and self-isolation accommodation ahead of time.

Things to Do in Singapore

Downtown Core

The Downtown Core is where you’ll find many of Singapore’s most iconic locations. Start with a wander through Maxwell Road Food Centre. Here you can taste (pun intended) Singapore’s fantastic food culture. Maxwell Road is one of the city’s popular street food areas and somewhere you will likely return more than once. After having a bite to eat, spend time wandering around Chinatown and see the Tang dynasty-era Buddhist temple. Also nearby is Thian Hock Keng Temple, one of the oldest Hokkien temples in Singapore. From here you can enjoy some shopping in one of the area’s many malls. It’s an effective way to cool down when the tropical heat gets to be too much.

Across the Singapore River is a collection of great museums. Swing past the Asian Civilisations (sic) Museum or the National Gallery. The Padang is a grassy area with significant monuments and other national symbols. St. Andrew’s Cathedral sits just off the Padang and is Singapore’s largest cathedral. East of St. Andrew’s is Fort Canning Park, an old British colonial-era military barracks. From the Fort you can go and explore the National Museum of Singapore, which provides a vibrant and illuminating look at the city’s history. Food options in the area are not hard to come by so grab a snack if you need one and press on towards Marina Bay.

Marina Bay

Marina Bay is a fabulous area with lush green parks, incredible bridges, and some of the city’s most impressive architectural achievements. Take a spin on the enormous Singapore Flyer Ferris wheel, quite lovely at sunset. Watch as the Gardens by the Bay come to life with their spellbinding light displays. The magical landscapes seem sprung from some distant dream world. Cross Helix Bridge towards the ArtScience Museum and be sure to snap plenty of photos along the way. You’ll quickly understand why the Marina Bay Sands hotel is the world’s most photographed locations. Visit the observation deck and infinity pool, which are simply breathtaking! Back down in the Gardens, find the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest. These massive seashell-like structures contain mesmerizing displays flora that will dazzle you. Supertree Grove is also a hit after dark.

Take in the atmosphere and beauty at the Gardens before continuing back towards the Downtown Core. This will give you a chance to stop at The Promontory, a first-rate photo location where you will have great backdrops with the Marina Bay Sands. Enjoy a cocktail, coffee, or tea at one of the restaurants along the water. Don’t forget to visit the Merlion, one of the city’s most beloved symbols. With the city lights in the background, one could easily sit on the steps near the fountain for hours and just admire the surroundings.

Kampong Glam

Kampong Glam is a great place to start your next day. This trendy district is filled with colorful buildings and was once where Malay Royalty resided. Grab something to eat and then visit Masjid Sultan, one of Singapore’s landmark mosques. Just opposite is the Malay Heritage Centre. Here you can explore more Singaporean culture and taste some local specialties. Slightly northeast from Kampong Glam you will find lots of Indian-owned businesses and restaurants. The Indian Heritage Centre is worthwhile if you want to learn about the Indian diaspora communities in Singapore. After taking in your fill, hop on the Downtown Line MTR and head for the Singapore Botanic Gardens.

Singapore Botanic Gardens and Tiong Bahru

The Singapore Botanic Gardens are one attraction you won’t want to miss. Regularly ranked one of the top gardens in Asia, they have the extremely rare privilege of being the only tropical gardens designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There is plenty to see around the 160 acre park, including the stunning National Orchid Garden with over 60,000 species on display. From the park, head south to Tiong Bahru. This charming neighborhood has some excellent small markets and delicious local food on offer. It’s another prime attraction for foodies.

Sentosa Island

Sentosa is Singapore’s playground. It’s there you will find Universal Studios Singapore, Madame Tussauds wax museum, and Adventure Cove Waterpark. Families will no doubt want to visit. Siloso Beach and Palawan Beach are great places to relax, catch some rays, or go for a swim. Many exclusive resort hotels are located on Sentosa, so it’s easy to spend a day here. You might consider checking out Resorts World Sentosa. The hotel has 11 lavish suite rooms located underwater and offering spectacular views into the hotel’s massive aquarium. Containing upwards of 40,000 sea creatures, guests in the underwater rooms will have no shortage of exciting and colorful creatures to admire. Each suite is built in a two-story configuration with the upper-level above the waterline. Guests can relax on a private outdoor patio or soak in the Jacuzzi. The underwater rooms are for the most part separate from the rest of the hotel, thus providing a degree of luxury and seclusion. Guests can request private transportation to the nearby S.E.A. Aquarium and Adventure Cove Waterpark, where they can enjoy exploring even more amazing marine life.

Changi Airport

Arriving in Singapore is an experience unto itself. Continually ranked as the world’s best, Changi Airport is a marvel. Visit the butterfly garden, the cactus garden, the kinetic rain sculpture, the HSBC Rain Vortex in the airport’s new Jewel addition…and so much more! Build some time in your itinerary maybe on the backend to explore here. With cutting-edge visual displays, gorgeous layouts, premiere shopping, and some architectural masterpieces, Changi is basically one big lounge onto itself. Make sure you snap some pictures of the light show at the Rain Vortex. It’s spectacular and attracts quite the crowd. Changi is designed with long concourses so make sure to note your gate location and plan accordingly. Spending time in Changi is a fitting way to end your visit to Singapore.

As one of the world’s most family-friendly destinations, Singapore offers something for everyone. Take your time and explore the city’s many facets. Great food, amazing architecture, wonderful nightlife, resorts, theme parks, and more…it’s all on offer in this great Southeast Asian city-state. Now that it’s possible to again travel for tourism and recreation, Singapore is a great destination to consider for an upcoming holiday vacation.

Unconventional tours around Bugis & Kampong Gelam include photo taking tips & guides who are fictional characters – Mothership.SG

If you’ve been cooped up working from home recently, or cracking your heads over how to spend your annual leave, why not stretch your legs by joining a local walking tour?

You’ll get to see the sights in Singapore and learn some interesting nuggets of information about familiar places.

Two tour companies in Singapore have introduced some rather unique tours by allowing participants to look at history and their surroundings through a new lens.

Instawalk tours

It’s the age of social media, and documenting your experiences and the places you’ve visited can’t be done without some aesthetic photos for your profile page.

Besides taking people around the culturally rich central areas of Bugis, Waterloo and Kampong Gelam, one “Instawalk Tour” on Klook, conducted by Tribe Tours, also incorporates the art of taking Instagrammable photos.

Participants get to take their own Insta-worthy shots of iconic landmarks and hidden gems while receiving photography tips and learning about quirky facts and historical tidbits about these places.

Taking photos and knowing places from different angles

Taking us on the tour is 55-year-old Tan Boon Yick, who has been guiding for two years. Tan previously held a corporate desk job, but always liked taking friends and colleagues from overseas around Singapore during his free time.

Tan always had plans to become a tour guide for leisure when he retired. Restructuring in his company, however, left him without a job and he decided to fast-forward his tour guide plans instead and took the plunge.

Make no mistake though, the brief amount of time he has spent as an official guide belies his knowledge and expertise.

Tan swiftly brings our fairly large group of over 20 people (in safe-distanced groups of eight, of course) through the streets with ease, all the while spouting facts about the history of Bugis.

For example, did you know that Bugis in the 1930s used to be filled with vice?

Brothels lined the streets and prostitutes solicited their services outdoors, until the authorities cracked down on such activities in the 80s to make way for development and the construction of a new MRT station.

Tan joked around that as a group comprising mainly young people in their twenties, he was allowed to share with us the more salacious bits of information (which you will find out only if you join Tan on his tour).

Tan then brought us through Waterloo Street, describing it as a microcosm of Singapore, with hawker centres, markets and HDBs juxtaposed with the high-end malls and hotels, as well as the amalgamation of various ethnicities’ places of worship.

One stop along the tour with Tan was the Sri Krishnan Temple at Waterloo Street. After Tan shared more about the various deities displayed on its facade, we were also taught how to use the temple’s colourful walls as an eye-popping background in photos.

Here’s an example of an Insta-worthy shot playing with the textures and colours of the temple’s exterior.

The next stop in our Instawalk Tour is a nondescript residential estate behind Bugis+. Who knew there were even HDBs in such a centralised area?

Tan shared that the flats were built in the 1980s, and with lesser concerns about land-constraints back then, the corridors of the flat are wider than existing HDBs.

The flats and its distinctive red-bricked facade also made for some rather striking photos in the morning sunlight, and we were encouraged to play with the straight lines and shapes in our photos.

As we went about snapping photos, Tan revealed an interesting fact— the gaps in the corridor’s parapet were for children to peek through. This was also to ensure that young kids wouldn’t try climbing the parapets to get a better view.

Engaging tour participants in a new manner

Unlike a typical heritage tour, the Instawalk Tour is a more interactive experience and your time and money will definitely be well spent.

When asked how to ensure tours remain attractive to locals, Tan said, “It either has to be an activity, or a tour they cannot do by themselves, and they can learn something which they cannot do on their own.”

Tan notes that the key to engaging Singaporeans in these tours is to “bring them back to a time before they were born” and show them “things that they have not seen before”. The nostalgia factor is also something that draws people in.

And truly, uncovering a hidden gem like this block of flats, sequestered from modernity, was one of the highlights of the tour.

However, the key to guiding and continuing to engage participants is still the passion one has for the job, Tan said.

It is this that sustains Tan through the three to four tours he conducts a week — not only does he educate participants on the history of the Bugis area, he also facilitates concept tours like the Chinatown Murders Game Tour, and the newly-launched Jewel Heist Game Tour around Jewel Changi Airport.

This is despite the fact that guiding can be quite physically demanding, especially in Singapore’s weather.

Tan says that by working with Tribe, he has “reinvented” himself, and conducting such a variety of tours has helped him overcome the challenges of the pandemic.

“If you’re not passionate about guiding, you’re just doing it to pay the bills, it’s difficult to sustain or you’ll just be an ordinary guide. If you want to be an outstanding guide you definitely need to have the aptitude, the passion and the attitude.”

Now you’ve seen all there is to Bugis, let’s take a short hop over to Kampong Gelam.

Fictional journey around Kampong Gelam

Another local tour with a creative spin is Let’s Go Tour’s “Aminah in Kampong Gelam”. As the name suggests, participants are brought around by Aminah.

And no, Aminah isn’t the name of the guide — instead, it is the name of a persona the guide takes on during the tour.

Aminah is an 86-year-old woman who was born before World War II in 1935, brought up at Kampong Gelam and spent the majority of her life in the area.

She is played by 37-year-old Nur Widarni Isnin, or Dani for short, who has been guiding since 2017. Dani explains that Aminah is a perfectly normal person like any other. She is, however, willing to share tales of her life story, as ordinary and conventional as it could be.

“Whatever you go through, these will be the stories you share with your grandchildren.”

To get into the character of an elderly woman more than twice her actual age, Dani paints wrinkles on her face with makeup.

She also dons a lacy hijab that belonged to her late grandmother (“You don’t see people wearing this kind [of hijab] nowadays”) and a flowery baju kurung with a more old-fashioned pattern, which was given to her by her sister.

Aminah’s story

Starting off the tour at the Let’s Go Tour office at Crawford Lane, Dani slipped into the character the moment she stepped through the office’s glass doors and onto the street.

She carried a wicker basket propped on her hip and walked with a stooped gait.

The first stop was the Alsagoff Arab School, where Aminah stopped to spin a tale of how as a young girl, Aminah had yearned to attend the school which in the 1930s, was meant for boys only.

She then gamely sang a song in childhood folk song in Malay outside the school’s gates, saying that this was the song Zulfri, Aminah’s father, would sing to her all the time.

Why is Kampong Gelam called “Kampong Gelam”?

Aminah then continued on through the streets of Kampong Gelam, before stopping at a rather innocuous grass patch.

One of the trees there was a ‘gelam’ tree, with distinctive papery bark. As a kid, Aminah would roll scrape off the flakes and collect them for her father, who worked as a boatman ferrying people between Singapore’s offshore islands and the mainland.

The bark was used by people in the past to repair their boats — once stuck in the open cracks and crevices in the boat’s wooden exterior, it would expand upon coming into contact with water, rendering the boat waterproof and leak-free.

Kampong Gelam used to be filled with ‘gelam’ trees, which thus gave rise to the name Gelam Village — essentially, Kampong Gelam.

Aminah told us that she used to pluck the leaves off the ‘gelam’ trees. When crushed, the leaves give off a medicinal aroma, and is used to produce a tonic commonly used by people in the past for headaches and other muscle aches, called cajeput essential oil. Now, the tonic is no longer manufactured in Singapore.

Tangible artifacts

Aminah then brought us to a shophouse in front of the Sultan Mosque. This, she said, was her childhood home. Aminah’s story soon took a dark turn when she shared how she survived through the death of her father during World War II.

Dani, who played Aminah, peppers her story with theatrical expressions and gestures as she mimics cowering from the caterwauling sirens during that period.

The inclusion of the dramatic war segment in Aminah’s story was to ensure the narrative Dani built up with Aminah had a climax, Dani later shared. Additionally, Dani’s own late grandmother had lived through the war in Singapore — “I know the pain she went through”.

Listening to Aminah’s story certainly makes for an interesting twist to the conventional tours. It enables readers to step back in time and view Singapore through the eyes of someone, albeit fictional, who has witnessed its development.

Aminah, Dani says, is sort of a “tangible artifact”, and someone who has all the answers to the past, and this is what “enhances” the tours, further engaging people in an unconventional way.

A childhood dream to act

Dani also shares that her passion for guiding and bringing the character of Aminah to life stems from a childhood dream to act.

“I’m just bringing out the makcik-ness (auntie-ness) in me, I don’t have someone that I’m imitating.”

“I’m naturally animated, loud, noisy, chatty, so that stage that I have is perfect for me. And I’m happy telling [people] about my culture, showing them a place that’s close to my heart.”

The Great Singapore Drive: A 200km road trip around the island, Motoring News & Top Stories

SINGAPORE – For some in Singapore, road trips to Malaysia are regular affairs.

The easy access to places like Melaka and Kuala Lumpur, a three- and four-hour drive respectively from the Woodlands Causeway, provides affordable holidays.

The 110kmh speed limit on most stretches of Malaysia’s North-South Highway, and scenic roads like the Terengganu coastal highway, also allow keen drivers and bikers to stretch the performance of their vehicles, within legal limits, while exploring new places.

But the Covid-19 pandemic has put the brakes on road trips north.

So The Straits Times took the road less travelled – a 200km drive around Singapore.

In this guide, the trip we took – in a Mini Convertible – is divided into four parts, which can be completed separately or in a day.

Starting at the Seah Im carpark near VivoCity, motorists can journey to the west, to the Jurong industrial estate, and then to Kranji in the north.

The route skirts the perimeter of the Central Catchment area before heading east to Punggol and Changi. The drive ends at Mount Faber.

1. Morning drive (77km) – Industrial Jurong and the scenic Kranji countryside

The first stop is South Buona Vista Road, which is known for its winding turns.

Although the road is referred to as “99 turns”, it is an exaggeration as there are only 11 turns.

The writer manoeuvres around one of the bends at the “99 turns” at South Buona Vista. ST PHOTO: MARK CHEONG

For history buffs, there is a historical marker in Kent Ridge Park off South Buona Vista Road worth stopping for.

It describes the epic battle in Pasir Panjang during World War II, where Lieutenant Adnan Saidi and the Malay Regiment fought the Japanese invaders from Feb 13 to 14, 1942. The national hero died as a result of the fight.

From South Buona Vista Road, the route takes drivers through the Jurong industrial estate, which has powered Singapore’s economic growth since independence.

The highlight of the drive is the construction site of Tuas Mega Port. When completed in 2040, it will be the world’s largest fully automated terminal.

After Tuas, the next stop is the “40 lamp posts”, or Lim Chu Kang Road, which is Singapore’s “spare runway”.

The road is flanked by the Lim Chu Kang cemeteries and Tengah Airbase. Since 1986, the Republic of Singapore Air Force has turned it into a temporary aircraft runway seven times for fighter jets to take off and land. The long and wide road is favoured by street racers for illegal car and motorbike races.

The next stop is Jalan Bahtera, possibly Singapore’s last unpaved and unlit road. It leads to Sarimbun Beach, where the first wave of Japanese soldiers landed on Feb 8, 1942, marking the start of the World War II battle for Singapore.

The route also covers the Lim Chu Kang and Kranji areas which are set to be transformed into Singapore’s food bowl, as the country ramps up its drive to produce more food locally as a buffer against global supply shocks. Some 390ha of land will be redeveloped under a masterplan to create a high-tech agri-food cluster.

The lunch stop is Bollywood Veggies, one of a handful of farm-themed eateries in the Kranji area. It is famous for its signature nasi lemak and dessert.

Insider tip: There is no public toilet along this 77km route.

2. Early afternoon drive (56km) – Exploring the Central Catchment area

The three stops in this segment are at the fringes of the Central Catchment area, with attractions that will appeal to nature and history buffs.

The first stop is Rifle Range Road, which peels off from Dunearn Road. It is frequented by those visiting the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) officers’ club, otherwise known as Temasek Club.

After the club, the road cuts into the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, one of few public roads inside the reserve.

Across the other end of the Central Catchment area from Rifle Range Road is Old Upper Thomson Road.

The writer drives around the “Devil’s Bend” at Old Upper Thomson Road which was previously the street circuit for the Malaysian Grand Prix and Singapore Grand Prix between 1961 and 1973. ST PHOTO: MARK CHEONG

Grand Prix drivers raced on this road between 1961 and 1973. It was where the Malaysian Grand Prix and Singapore Grand Prix were held. A 3km stretch of Old Upper Thomson Road is now a one-way street to accommodate a park connector.

Insider tip: Slow down at this stretch. The Grand Prix circuit claimed the lives of seven racers over 11 years the races were held there.

In January 2008, a Mitsubishi Lancer careened off the road when approaching the Devil’s Bend – a sharp 300-degree hairpin turn – and slammed into a wall of trees, causing the death of two passengers.

In addition, be careful about wildlife such as macaques in Rifle Range Road and Old Upper Thomson Road.   Both are narrow roads between forest fragments which wildlife cross frequently.

The third stop is the rocket tower and the famous casuarina tree at Upper Seletar Reservoir. It is an opportunity to take a photo or selfie at one of Singapore’s most Instagrammed trees.

3. Late afternoon drive (39km) – Exploring two quirky spots

This segment explores two quirky landmarks.

The first, a coffee break at the Soek Seng 1954 Bicycle Cafe, which is hidden in the Seletar Aerospace Park. Diners can get a view of the Seletar Airport runway and parked planes, including private jets.

The second stop is the “UFOs” in Tampines Road. The “UFOs” or “giant spinning tops” are storage tanks to hold Newater, which is water recycled from waste and treated to drinking quality.

Insider tip: There is no carpark near the “UFOs”, so look out for a runoff area opposite the Tian Teck Keng temple to park and take photos. The stretch of road hosts several large temples and a funeral parlour.

4. Night drive (23km) – Night drive through the city

The dinner stop is along Changi Coastal Walk, in the Belly View Cafe in the National Service Resort and Country Club. Diners can check out the flight paths of planes landing and taking off from the Changi Airport, and soak in views of the sun setting over the horizon.

The eatery serves affordable local zi char dishes such as fried rice and prawn-paste chicken. It is not the best zi char in Singapore, but it is definitely the zi char with one of the best views.

After dinner, the route takes drivers to Sheares Bridge for a view of the Marina Bay skyline, Singapore Flyer, Marina Bay Sands, Bay East Garden and the Supertrees of Gardens by the Bay.

The drive continues through major Shenton Way landmarks like the Marina Bay Financial Centre, Lau Pa Sat and Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) Building, and Keppel Road landmarks like the former Tanjong Pagar Railway Station.

The journey ends at Mount Faber, which is near Seah Im carpark where it all started.

Insider tip: Head to carpark B for the best view of Sentosa. Parking is free.

In January 2003, then Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad made a quip directed at Singapore drivers: “If you like, drive on our roads, which are quite long, in Ferraris – they have Ferraris, you know – because in Singapore you can’t drive very far.”

While Singapore’s roads may not be as long and as varied as Malaysia’s, there are still ample routes to keep both keen and casual travellers in gear, and little known out-of-the-way places to entertain explorers.

Get to Know Singapore with Duck & Hippo’s Hop On Hop Off Tour

The first time we got on one of these Hop On Hop Off buses was in Sydney, Australia. It was a revelation. We used to rely solely on public transportation to visit points of interest so I never knew how easy and convenient these double-decker buses could be. We got to see most (if not all) of Sydney’s key attractions in one day, and best of all, we got to see them at our own pace.

If you’ve never taken one of these Hop On Hop Off tours before, they’re typically double-decker buses that ply a set route through a city’s major attractions. They have stops at these key points where you can hop on and off. Wanna get off and take some selfies with the Merlion? No problem! Take as many selfies as you want. And when you’re done, just wait at the same stop and the next bus shouldn’t be too far away. You’ll have the freedom to hop on and off as many times as you like within the validity period of your pass, which is typically 24, 48, or 72 hours from the moment you first hopped on. Pretty cool right? Apart from a map, you’ll also be given headphones so you can plug into the onboard audio guide.

Hop on Hop Off buses are so convenient that it’s the first thing I search for now when visiting a new city. Unless there’s a known traffic or pollution problem, then there’s no better way to become acquainted with a new destination. Such was the case in Singapore.

Our hotel was in Little India so we waited for the big red bus in front of the Tekka Centre Food Hall. Several companies offer Hop On Hop Off tours in Singapore but we went with DUCK & HiPPO Tours. Pictures here are just a few of its key stops. They have 7 lines in all with different routes so you can experience as much of the city as possible. Scroll down to the bottom of this post for prices, bus routes, a timetable, and discount information.

And away we go! I prefer sitting up top but Singapore gets pretty hot so you can sit on the first level if you want air-conditioning. Check out the Old Hill Street Police Station with its colorful windows.

One of the stops on the Yellow line (arguably the best of the 7) is the Singapore Botanic Gardens. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it covers an area of 74 hectares and is home to themed gardens and lakes, even a tropical rain forest! It’s also home to the National Orchid Garden which houses the largest display of orchids in the world. It’s a beautiful place so I suggest hopping off here. You can check out my post on the National Orchid Garden for more pictures and information.

Where Singapore goes to shop. A prime stretch of real estate, I like to think of it as as the Rodeo Drive of Singapore. You’ll find plenty of high-end malls, boutiques, cafes, and restaurants here.

This is the area where we stayed. DUCK & HiPPO offers free walking tours of Little India every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 10:30AM-1PM. You can grab a flyer from any of the buses for more information.

The restaurant pictured below — Singapore Zam Zam — is one of the best restaurants in Singapore. They’ve been around since 1908 and are known for serving some of the best murtabak in the city.

Coming up on the left is the iconic Raffles Hotel, named after the founder of Singapore Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles. It’s one of Singapore’s finest hotels with standard rooms going for around SGD 700+ a night. 😯 It’s also home to Long Bar, where Singapore’s national cocktail — the Singapore Sling — was invented.

Duck & HiPPO’s main terminal is at Suntec City Mall. Once the bus reaches the terminal, everyone will be asked to get off. You can then hop on any of the other lines including the next bus for the line you were just on. The bus below is from the Brown line.

We got on midway through the Yellow line so we hopped on it again to do the full loop. As previously mentioned, the Yellow line is the best because it takes you to most of the city’s key attractions.

The Singapore Flyer, one of the city’s most iconic attractions. This giant Ferris wheel has an overall height of 165 meters and was once the tallest in the world. One full loop takes around half an hour to complete. We didn’t ride it but you can check the Singapore Flyer website for more information. I believe DUCK & HiPPO offers combo passes as well, flyers for which you can find on the buses.

Right after the Flyer is Marina Bay Sands, another of Singapore’s most popular landmarks. Opening in 2010, it was billed as the world’s most expensive standalone casino valued at SGD 8 billion. To the right of the bus in the picture below is the Helix Bridge which connects Marina Centre with Marina South.

Here’s a shot of Marina Bay Sands from Gardens by the Bay. I never thought it looked that interesting in pictures but it’s pretty spectacular in person. Wait till you see how it looks from the inside.

Shopping center inside Marina Bay Sands. They have a good food hall here as well called the Rasapura Masters Food Court.

The hotel lobby. Isn’t it incredible? Architecturally, this was probably the most stunning hotel lobby we’ve ever seen.

Behind Marina Bay Sands is Gardens by the Bay, Singapore’s top-rated attraction on TripAdvisor. This place will blow your mind. The alien-looking structures below are the famed Supertrees. Follow this link for more pictures and information on Supertree Grove.

Gardens by the Bay is also home to two incredible conservatories. Pictured below is the Cloud Forest conservatory which is arguably the single best attraction in Singapore. Words cannot describe how cool this place is. It’s basically a mountain in a dome that you can explore via an aerial platform. Follow this link for more pictures and information on the Cloud Forest.

Next to the Cloud Forest is the equally remarkable Flower Dome which is home to a stunning array of plant life from across the globe. To my amazement, they even have baobab trees here from Madagascar! Follow this link for more pictures and information on the Flower Dome.

As alluded to up top, you can’t visit Singapore without taking a few token selfies with the Merlion. A mythical creature with a lion’s head and a fish’s body, it’s recognized as the national symbol of Singapore.

Everyone was doing these water-catching type of shots so in the spirit of touristic solidarity, we had to do it as well. Look at Ren, she’s so into it. 😆

Har har very funny Renée. 👿

Known as the “durian” because of its uniquely spiny architectural design, the Esplanade is a performing arts center that contains an 1,800-seat concert hall and a 2,000-seat performing arts theater. The architecture in Singapore is pretty badass.

Not sure what this building is but it’s pretty. ♥

This post focuses on the HiPPO component of DUCK & HiPPO Tours, but they actually offer two types of tours. HiPPO tours refer to land-based Hop on Hop Off buses while DUCK tours involve amphibious vehicles that can traverse both land and water. You’ll embark on a remodeled WWII amphibious Vietnamese war craft that drives into the sea to give you a unique perspective of the city! If you’ve never seen it, it’s basically a boat with wheels. We didn’t do it but you can check the DUCK & HiPPO Tours website for more information.

As previously described, there are 7 lines that make up the HiPPO tours. 5 take you around downtown Singapore while the other 2 are safari lines that take you to Singapore’s animal parks. The Singapore 7 Sightseeing Pass gives you unlimited access to all 7 lines and are valid for 24, 48, or 72 hours. Prices for each are as follows (adults/kids): 24 hrs — SGD 43/33, 48 hrs — SGD 49/39, and 72 hrs — SGD 59/49. These can be purchased online or as soon as you get on the bus, which is what we did. Your time starts when you first hop on. So if you bought a 24-hour pass and hopped on at 10AM, then it’ll be good until 9:59AM the following day.

If you don’t want to ride all 7 lines, then you can get a City Sightseeing Pass which limits your access to just the Yellow and Red lines. In my opinion, these are the 2 best lines anyway and will cover most of Singapore’s key attractions. These are available as 24 or 48 hour passes. Prices for each are SGD 39/29 and SGD 49/39 respectively. These aren’t available for purchase on the buses so you’ll need to buy them in advance from the DUCK & HiPPO Tours website.

Alternatively, you can buy City Sightseeing Passes from Klook.

DUCK & HiPPO offers combo passes to some of the attractions along its route like the Singapore Flyer and Gardens by the Bay. They even have combo passes that combine their HiPPO (land) and DUCK (sea) tours. You can check out their website for more information on DUCK & HiPPO packages.

How to get to Singapore?

The Singapore Airport is an international hub with direct flights to many destinations. If you live in a major city, you most likely have a direct flight to Singapore.

From the Philippines, you can fly direct from Manila, Clark, Cebu, Iloilo, and Davao. You can check and book cheap flights to Singapore now.

By land, you also get to Singapore by taking a bus from Kuala Lumpur, Melaka, and Johor Bahru in Malaysia. You can book a ticket in advance here for a hassle-free journey. Check out our Malaysia-Singapore border crossing guide.

Traveling by ferry is also possible if you come from the islands of Bintan and Batam in Indonesia. You can check out the schedule of the ferry to Batam or Bintan to help you plan your itinerary.

When is the best time
to visit Singapore?

Generally, the best time to plan your trip to Singapore is from February to April. During this period, you can explore many places, without the hassle of rain. 

When you want to escape the heavy throngs of tourists, mid-January through May is considered the “shoulder season”. If you are traveling on a budget, you can negotiate a lower accommodation rate during the low season (August to October, except mid-September because of Singapore Grand Prix). The peak months are June and July in time of the Great Singapore Sale, and also from November to early January. 

How to get to the
city center from Singapore Airport

Prior to your Singapore exploration, purchase an EZ-link card to pay your transport fares on the metro (MRT), buses, taxis, private cars, as well as food and drinks in various vending machines or stores. Check out our list of Things to Do at Changi International Airport.

Changi Airport Shuttle
This shared transfer service option is the least expensive way to travel to and from Changi Airport. It has drop-off points in the Central Singapore hotels. You can pre-book online or avail of the service at the Ground Transport Desk in the Arrival hall. It is recommended for travelers with one piece of luggage and a backpack or bag.  

There are many taxi units in the Arrival Area of the airport’s terminals that will conveniently take you to your hotel, especially if you have lots of luggage. The fare is approximately between SGD 20-35 and subject to change because of the peak or off-peak hours, late-night surcharge, port surcharge, and additional ERP charge that is passed on to the passenger. It takes about 20-25 minutes to reach the city center.

Mass Rapid Transit (MRT)
The quickest way to reach your destination, however, you need to transfer to another train at Tanah Merah Station because of the absence of a direct line to the center of the city. The first trip leaves at 5:20 AM on Monday-Saturday and 5:47 AM on Sunday and during public holidays, while the last train departs at 11:54 PM.

Another cost-effective means to reach the city is riding a bus. All the airport terminals have designated bus stops. Use your EZ-link card or pay the exact amount for the fare.

Changi International Airport

Connecting to the
Internet in Singapore

Singapore has an Internet connectivity rate of more than 99%, making it
easy to connect with your family, colleagues, and clients across the world.
There are ways to access the internet such as:

Prepaid SIM card
You can purchase a SIM card at Changi Telcos retail counters and convenience stores. You need to show your passport for registration purposes upon purchase.

Free Public Wi-Fi
There are many public areas across Singapore with available free hotspots. It includes malls, community centers, public libraries, museums, Sentosa Island, Changi Airport, and MRT stations. 

Pocket Wi-Fi
Another option is to connect using a pocket Wi-Fi device that gives you data access. It can be rented at the airport’s Changi Recommends counters or other Wi-Fi rental companies. Rent a pocket WIFI now.

Where to exchange local currency in Singapore?

There are a lot of exchange centers in the airport but of course, the rate is slightly lower compared to the exchange centers in the city. What you can do is to exchange a small amount at the airport and go to Lucky Plaza to get one of the best currency exchange rates in Singapore.

How to get around

Exploring the beautiful sights and attractions of Singapore is easy because of its modern public transportation system.

Singapore Tourist Pass

The Singapore Tourist Pass is a special EZ-link card that offers visitors unlimited travel on
Singapore’s basic bus services, MRT and LRT trains for a period of 1, 2 or 3 days validity. You may purchase it at designated station slike at the airport, Chinatown, Orchard and other major MRT/LRT stations. The rates are:

1-DAY PASS: $20
2-DAY PASS: $26
3-DAY PASS: $30
Inclusive of $10 Refundable Rental Deposit

It is the most comfortable means to get around the city. The trains are available from 5:30 AM until around midnight, with 1 to 3 minutes-interval at peak hours and 3 to 5 minutes-interval during off-peak hours.

Getting around in a taxi is the best if you have little kids or in a group. It can be a bit costly, but it will take you faster to the point of destination.

Another convenient way is to take a bus. Buses ply across the city as early as 5:30 in the morning until 12:00 midnight. 

On Foot
It is the cheapest and the most tiring, but if you want to get familiar with the city streets and explore every place, then why not try it?

Where to stay in Singapore?

The hotels in Singapore are relatively more expensive compared to the rest of Southeast Asia. But of course, there are cheap hostels too if you are traveling on a budget.

If the price is less of your concern then we highly suggest you stay at Marina Bay Sands. It is one of the top hotels in Singapore and a tourist destination in itself. Room rates start at around USD520. You can book now online via

For a mid-range hotel, we recommend the Strand Hotel in Bugis. It is an affordable top-rated hotel in the popular Bugis area in Singapore.

Budget travelers and backpackers can stay at Dream Lodge Hostel. This budget hotel is one of the top-rated hostels in Singapore. You can get a single pod here for around USD24 a night. Book now as their pods and rooms sell fast. It is located within the city center at 172 Tyrwhitt Road, Kallang, Singapore. If you are looking for a place near Chinatown, Capsule Pod Boutique Hostel offers clean and comfortable beds right next to Chinatown MRT station.

Must-Try Food in Singapore

Chilli Crab. Dubbed as the national dish of Singapore, the Singapore Chilli Crab made it to the 2011 CNN poll of the World’s 50 Best Foods. This is definitely a dish you should try when you visit the modern city of Singapore. The best place to have a Singapore Chilli Crab is at Mellben Seafood Restaurant at Blk 211 Toa Payoh Lorong 8 #01-11/15, Singapore. You may also try it at Long Beach Seafood Restaurant and at No Signboard Seafood Restaurant.

Chicken Rice. Another dish to try when in Singapore is the Hainanese Chicken Rice. It is one of the most popular dishes in Singapore and a must-try for visitors. It’s a very simple dish but also flavorful you would want it every time you visit the city. You can pretty much get Hainanese Chicken Rice everywhere in Singapore.

Kaya Toast with Soft-Boiled Eggs. This is a traditional Singaporean breakfast. This popular breakfast combo is made up of toasted bread, coconut or egg kaya, and a slice of thinly sliced butter. The kaya toast is best paired with soft-boiled eggs and coffee. You can have your kaya toast at Ya Kun Kaya Toast which has a lot of stalls across Singapore.

Chicken Rice

Michelin-Starred Hawker Stalls

If you want to try a Michelin-starred restaurant without breaking the bank, you can go to Hawker Chan in Chinatown or Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle. Both have a one-star rating in the 2019 Michelin Guide.

90,000 Singapore tours prices 2021 for two all inclusive – Singapore package price for two

Hello Irina! It’s been 2 months since we returned from the trip, 😃 all hands did not reach to write a review, but I still want to share my impressions with you and say thank you 😊
First of all, I want to thank you for your help in planning the itinerary and selecting hotels! The trip turned out as much as we wanted – beach holidays and sports mixed with interesting experiences and quite frequent changes of locations.Everything was perfectly matched for the first time, now we know exactly where we will go for a little longer, and where – once is enough. Thanks again!
Now a few details about the hotels.
Inata Bisma Resort & Spa Ubud is perfect. It is located at a sufficient distance from the center to be quiet, but it is only 20 minutes to walk to a cluster of bars and restaurants. Also the monkey park is very close, we went! Great room, very beautiful and tastefully decorated area, pools, ponds, flowers, just divine! And these ducks 🦆☺️ Yes, very polite staff.Breakfast only pumped up, the selection is small and not very tasty. But it will stop for a couple of days – these are trifles. In general, we were very pleased, the atmosphere in it is indescribable, what is needed after the flight and to start the rest. I would go there again!
Champlung Mas Hotel in Kuta. This is my first Asian three-ruble note, at first I was upset, the cheapness is felt in everything. But! On closer inspection, the hotel grounds are very beautiful, those huge palm trees by the pool in the courtyard – five plus! The rooftop pool is also a good move.And delicious food 👌🏻And breakfasts and à la carte. This finally reconciled me 😊 And the location, it is again amazingly good, and the sea is close and there are a lot of restaurants around, and in the heat it is so important not to drag too far! And God bless him, with not very kind staff, for a three-ruble note is quite normal. One jamb was really sad – everything in our room was covered with a layer of oil when we checked in – the floor and all surfaces. And even a mirror. Apparently they sprayed the fragrance, from the heart. We asked to clean it up and they cleaned it right away while we were having lunch, but they didn’t completely and apparently didn’t consider it a problem, since it was not possible to achieve complete degreasing 😃 Yes, and they don’t give out beach towels.For the pool only, taking them to the beach is prohibited. But we quickly decided that, in the store on the way there are as many of them as you want for 300 rubles. In general, I am also satisfied with the hotel, you just need to understand the difference between 3 and 4 stars.
Keraton Jimbatan Resort. Incredible beauty, I thought so and got the maximum aesthetic pleasure from the territory! So much beauty 🤩🌴🌺 The food is also very tasty, both breakfasts and à la carte. Once they miscalculated and it is here, of course, it’s funny 😅 Excellent beach, service level. Of course, it is very convenient when the beach is on the territory, but at the same time it is boring 😊 Nothing to explore.We went out of the territory in the evening and quickly returned back, it makes sense to walk only along the beach. And there are crabs in the cafes. The summary is this – the place is too remote from everything and probably we will not go there again. Well, if only, again, for a couple of nights. But it was definitely worth a look!
Summer View in Singapore. This is generally a 100% hit. Thanks to this location – two stops by metro to the center – we definitely looked twice as much as we could 😄 The service is perfect, allowed to leave luggage without problems, suggested the best way to go to the airport, everything is very polite.Nice little, really tiny number, but here for sure – just sleep. If you live more than 1-2 nights, then something else is better, because there is simply nowhere to put the luggage, there is nowhere to unpack things from the suitcase, there is no closet and, in fact, there is no room either. There is free noodles in the room 😅 But then we saw everything we wanted – the Clark Quay and Boat Quay embankments went back and forth several times and took a boat trip, Marina Bay, walked there at night and day, rode the Ferris wheel, China Town and the surrounding area, watched a show in Gardens by the Bay and went to Sentosa to the aquarium.Impressions of the sea! Wonderful city ❤️ still have to go!
In total: all hotels are selected very appropriately, the hand of a professional is felt, everything is thought out in drawing up the route, you have taken into account so many nuances! 👍🏻 We had a great rest, thanks again 😍 90,000 Tours to Singapore – Prices for holidays in Singapore from the tour operator Sitis Travel
