Looking for activities in Singapore that can make your stay on the island memorable? Then check out the suggestions below. Contrary to what others think, Singapore has more to offer than just Universal Studios and the Marina Bay Sands. It’s an interesting place that will keep you coming back for more.
Take silly pictures at Merlion Park
You’re not really thinking of skipping Merlion Park are you? The Merlion statue is probably the most iconic landmark in all of Singapore. And of course you can’t go there without taking a silly picture with the Merlion. Posting it on Instagram is optional. Some would classify this under cheesy activities in Singapore but you can’t deny that it’s still fun. You’ll soon find out that taking an unobstructed photo of the statue can be challenging since there’s always a crowd in the area. The mythical creature is the national symbol of the city-state and a beloved icon. And if you haven’t seen it yet, it has the body of a fish and the head of a lion.
Ride the Singapore Flyer
Some would say that riding oversized ferris wheels is overrated and also expensive. But you can’t deny that it’s still a fun experience. The Singapore Flyer offers the best view of Singapore. It is the largest observation wheel in Asia and will lift you 165 meters into the air. It has a total of 28 capsules and the ride lasts for 30 minutes. You have the option to have drinks like Champagne or Singapore Sling or you can even have dinner in the air for an additional fee of course.
Go back in time
It’s always a good idea to know the history of the place you’re visiting. There’s an unusual museum in Singapore that is a must-visit for history buffs and it’s called Battlebox. Located beneath Fort Canning Hill, Battlebox used to be a secret British military fort that played an important role in Singapore’s history. It’s where the British Empire put up their last stand against the Japanese during World War II. You can learn more about the historical event through the wax mannequins, photos, and other memorabilia displayed in the museum. The museum is designed to make visitors feel what it was like to be a soldier in the fort during the last days of the war.
Wine and dine at Clarke Quay
Clarke Quay is the place to go to in Singapore if you’re in the mood for international cuisine. Caring for authentic pasta, the place has some good Italian restaurants. Do you want to have French cuisine for dinner? Then you won’t be disappointed with the selection of Clarke Quay. It also has outdoor bars where you can spend the night with friends or with a special someone. The place is indeed a haven for foodies.
Spend a day in Chinatown
One of the most worthwhile activities in Singapore you can do is to spend a day in Chinatown. The place has everything from shops, historical and cultural centers, and of course delicious Chinese food. Also an ideal place to go if you’re on a budget.
