Best Things To Do in Singapore

You can enjoy both urban and natural attractions in this mega-metropolis. Perusing the designer stores on Orchard Road or the spice stalls of Little India will showcase the city's fast pace. And at the other end of the spectrum, the Singapore Botanic Gardens and Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve will provide a breath of fresh air. If you want a playground for both adults and kids, head to Sentosa—an island that hosts Universal Studios Singapore, two golf course, beaches and luxury resorts. To complete your trip, say farewell to the city from the top of the Singapore Flyer (think London Eye) or in iconic Merlion Park on Marina Bay.
