Singapore is definitely not the biggest city in the world but it steadily attracts wealth from around the planet. It has become a synonym of luxury and provides everything lovebirds may need for a perfect romantic vacation or honeymoon. Let’s see what 7 spots you can’t miss here!
This is where all local tourist routes meet and you won’t find any better spot to kick your trip off. The area hosts many outstanding attractions like Marina Bay Sands – a luxurious resort complex featuring the Skypark, from where the entire city can be seen at a glance, the Art-Science Museum, and the skyline, of course. Besides, the futuristic Gardens by the Bay and the Merlion Park are to be found right here. To feel the true essence of Singapore, come to visit the Bay at night when it all glows.
Built in 2008, the Flyer was the tallest Ferris wheel in the world until the High Roller’s completion in 2014. Anyway, it is the largest (165 meters or 541 feet in height) observation wheel in Asia with a 3-floor complex featuring shops and restaurants at the foot of the edifice. From its highest point, a tourist’s eye can reach the shores of Indonesia and Malaysia – that’s what natives say. It’s indeed like taking a 30-minute flight and you can do it anytime from early in the morning till late at night.
This lively boulevard stretching for 2.2 km is actually the epicenter of local retail: more than 20 malls and 6 department stores, as well as numerous coffee houses, restaurants, hotels, and nightclubs, are at your disposal. And the Istana building, the President’s official residence, is located nearby. For those whose passion is shopping, there is no better place in the whole city! A myriad of goods in different price categories are available here. I’d advise you to visit it in Christmas when the avenue is lovely decorated.
Singapore Botanic Gardens
You should know that Singapore isn’t just a concrete jungle. 74 hectares of its territory are covered with tropical vegetation and known as the Singapore Botanic Gardens, part of the UNESCO World Heritage. Get lost in the wild to see over 10 thousand of flora species combined with beautiful sculptures. Among spots worth a special visit, there are the National Orchid Garden, the Botany Centre, andSymphony Lake by which free concerts take place on weekends and the monument of Frederic Chopin is located.
A crowded trade area at the mouth of the picturesque Singapore River is mostly famous for its nightspots. Yet there is a plenty of other great spots within walking distance. Take a walk to the Asian Civilisations Museum, relax at Fort Canning Park, and check out the Central Fire Station – the first fire station in Singapore – and the Civil Defense Heritage Gallery inside. And there’s the glorious Hong San See Buddhist temple too.
If you are in love with Mother Nature, the city offers you to take a look at its fauna too. The Singapore Zoo is split into 11 zones hosting 12 wonderful exhibits. It’s not just about walking throughout the territory – you will see animal shows and go for safaris. In particular, Night Safaris are very popular among late visitors: it encompasses 7 geographic “regions”and top-class entertainment.
In fact, this island is worth being a romantic destination by itself. Make time to go there during your stay in Singapore! It takes a day or even several days to explore Sentosa and you can do literally everything you want. First of all, it is a beach and golf resort area open to the public 24/7. There are hotels, restaurants, a casino,and a few theme parks e.g. Adventure Cove Waterpark, Marine Life Park etc. One of the brightest local attractions is Universal Studios Singapore, an amusement park dedicated to Hollywood movies.
