    1. Dear Elizabeth,
      Thanks a lot for your kind comment. I too hope this will help out more travelers who would like to explore Singapore. This guide is break into different portion so I guess it would be easier for traveler to navigate according to their interest.

  3. Wow I’m definitely pinning this one for later. Love those pics too. I’ve always wanted to visit Singapore.

    1. Dear Veronica,
      There are many reasons to visit Singapore, the food, the culture, the traditions, the arts, the architecture, the neighborhood. You have to see it yourself and experience the Singaporean vibes.

    1. Dear Ithfifi William,
      I am glad you find this post helpful and thanks for your comment. You are right about Singapore, it is so rich and vibrant in culture and history. The island has four official languages; English, Tamil, Malay and Mandarin and celebrates the national holidays of many different religions. It is certainly very “Cultural Diversity” 🙂

    1. Dear Dylan,
      Singapore has plenty to offer and you are right about Singapore Zoo, it is not only huge but also one of the best rainforest in the world. You also get to feed the “orang utan” or having lunch together and get one of the best “zoo experience”! Pop music star, Michael Jackson too have tea with the “Orang Utan” in Singapore Zoo when he visited many years ago.

  4. A great complation of potential destinations! I love how your choices address people with different interests, it really shows what a colourful, interesting place Singapore is, with something to offer to every visitor 😉

    1. Dear Flora,
      Thanks so much for your kind comment. Singapore’s unique cosmopolitan culture reflects the harmonious relationship between old and the new. Chinese has their chinatown, Muslim has their Kampong Glam and Indian has their Little India. Pretty amazing to see them blending well together in this small island.

  5. My adult son would flip if we visited the Jurong Bird Park. He absolutely loves and is fascinated by exotic birds. I’m sure there would be many we do not have in the US.

    1. Dear Gladys,
      Singapore bird park is home to more than 5000 bird across 400 species. You also get to have the upclose encounter, touching and feeding the bird in the Lory Loft. Originally Singapore built Jurong Bird Park because the maintenance cost for birds is so much lower compare to zoo, animals such as lion & tiger eat tons of meats and cost a lot of money.

  6. Singapore is actually on my 2019 list of places to visit, so this will be super helpful to me when I start my planning. Thanks so much for sharing this!

  7. Seems like it can be an interesting place to visit for sure 🙂 ive always dreamt of visiting New Zealand because of its gorgeous scenery and take on preserving the ecosystem and using sustainable sources of energy but maybe I’ll give this place a try in my life.

    1. Dear Alexandra,
      Ya, New Zealand is also in my bucket list. I would love to viist the stunning scenery and mountains especially where Lord of the Rings scene was filmed.

  8. Wow, such a detailed post that would be so helpful to plan a great trip to Singapore. Loving the pictures so much.

    1. Dear Preet,
      Thanks for your comment and I am glad you like the pictures. There are few man made tourist attractions one cannot missed, such as the iconic landmark, Merlion and the Supertree in Garden By The Bay. You get nice pictures there.

  9. Anyone planning a trip to Singapore would benefit from reading your post since you listed many enjoyable places to visit in that city.

    1. Dear Crystal,

      You can visit Singapore anytime as it is warm all year round and there is no language barrier as most people speak English. The skyline of the city is so stunning and you can capture beautiful picture when you doing the river tour or at the Singapore Flyer too.

    1. Dear Adaleta,
      Singapore has few theme parks but one of the oldest them park one should not missed is Haw Par Villa theme park, it is more than 50 years of history, built in 1937. It is a hidden gem and yet the entrance is free of charge. You get to see the old figurines and old sculptures and really unusual theme park.

  10. I would like to visit Singapore one day, I only did transit through the airport few time. never got a chance to visit there thanks for sharing this it is really useful for a person who doesn’t know much about Singapore.

    1. Dear Swathiiyer,

      Thanks for your comment. Many flights would stopover in Singapore for transit. Hope you do stay for few days for your future transit in Singapore. 2-3 days stay is good enough to explore the major hot spots.

    1. Dear Lavanda Michelle,

      Thanks for your comment. There are so many good things about Singapore, such as clean and green but it is also one of the most expensive city in Asia. However, if you are coming from America, you will not feel the pain so much. Similar to American’s price.

  11. Well you’ve convinced me to visit! I want to visit this summer and explore what there is to offer! Great pics too!

  12. Dear Hillcitybride,
    Singapore is a hidden gem, it has all the modern man-made architecture, such as supertree which will also glow at night at Garden By the Bay. Check this out especially during festive seasons, such as Xmas.

  13. Wow, I wish I had something like this when I was living in Asia and trying to justify a trip to Singapore. Now that we’ve both seen Crazy Rich Asians its on our bucket list.
