Singapore – Top Things To Do

Singapore's Wildlife Parks

There is a lot to choose from in the way of Zoo's and Safari's in Singapore. There is the main Singapore Zoo which is like any normal zoo except actual enclosures are at a minimum. Expect to see creatures all around you every time you turn your head, orang-utans in the trees above and Crocodiles in the water below. Within the zoo is also the River Safari where you go on a boat ride through various different river ecosystems and at the end you'll be met by the elusive pandas. Completing the trio of attractions is the Night Safari, a zoo especially designed to be viewed a night, certain animals come alive at night and so this time is the best to see them. If you'd prefer a park dedicated to feathered creatures go and visit Jurong Bird Park, Asia's biggest.

Universal Studios

A smaller version than its counterparts but it still has enough here to entertain you all day. It's based on Sentosa Island and includes lands such as Far Far Away, Madagascar and Ancient Egypt. Highlights include The Revenge of the Mummy ride and Lights, Camera, Action.

Gardens By The Bay

Stroll around here to see all the different flora and the impressive super tress which are also used to create energy. The gardens have a great walkway to view the gardens and the city from and if you go at night the super trees present a wonderful light display.

Raffles Hotel

Raffles is a reminder of Singapore's colonial history. Built in 1887 Raffles is home to the famous long bar and where the Singapore Sling cocktail was invented and the floor is lined with peanut shells. The done things is to grab a handful of nuts eat them and chuck the shells on the floor. If you have a lot of money in your pocket you can stay in the hotel but for the rest of us just grab a sling and they do nice food too.
