1. Marina Bay Sands

A high-end luxury hotel, a shopping center with a canal flowing through it, the ArtScience Museum, and the Marina Bay Sands Skypark Observation Deck—a vantage point for viewing the entire city—are all part of the magnificent Marina Bay Sands resort complex. The ship—yes, a ship—that sits atop the hotel is home to the Skypark's viewing deck and infinity pool. The infinity pool is only accessible to hotel guests, although anybody may visit the observation deck.

The spectacular skyline, the harbor, the double helix bridge, and the Gardens by the Bay (101 hectares of land transformed into waterfront gardens) can all be seen from the Skypark.

2. Botanic Gardens

The Botanic Gardens, not to be confused with the Gardens by the Bay, are well worthwhile a visit. For its botanical gardens, Singapore got its first submission for the UNESCO World Heritage List. Despite being clean and pleasant, the city might occasionally feel like a concrete jungle, yet Singapore's wilder past is preserved in the botanic gardens.

3. Sentosa Island

Sentosa Island is the place to go if you truly want to have some fun in the sun despite the fact that Singapore isn't exactly recognized as a beach destination. Siloso Beach is a great place to spend time at the beach. There are free volleyball courts there, as well as opportunities for kayaking and skimboarding. Additionally, there are a number of other beachside attractions, as well as an aquarium called Underwater World where you may go dolphin swimming.

The Merlion, a famous statue in Singapore with the head of a lion and the body of a fish, is a must-see on Sentosa Island. The statue's top may be reached via an escalator, where you can take in sweeping views of the surroundings.

4. Universal Studios Singapore

49 acres of Resorts World Sentosa are occupied by Universal Studios Singapore. The park is set out thematically, with each section paying homage to a setting, movie, or television program.

There are trips to New York City, Hollywood, Madagascar, and Ancient Egypt. There are several zones with a literary theme, such as Shrek's Far Far Away, Lost World, and Sci-Fi City, where the thrill rides are dominated by roller coasters with Battlestar Galactica themes and an indoor dark coaster called Revenge of the Mummy.

The park offers numerous rides, from family-friendly to daredevil, as well as a variety of dining establishments, shops, and live performances both during the day and at night.

5. Asian Civilizations Museum

Visit the Empress Place Building if the Raffles Hotel and Fort Canning Park haven't sated your desire for colonial architecture. It was built in 1865 in the Neoclassical architectural style, and Queen Victoria's name was given to it. The Asian Civilizations Museum, which explores the various Asian cultures that shaped Singapore, is presently housed there.

The museum's holdings are centered on trade and spirituality, two topics that have a significant impact on Asian cultures. A look at the significant role that intellectuals had in Chinese culture for millennia is one of the topics covered in the exhibits, which also look at the Indian Ocean commerce and stories of faith and belief.

6.  Buddha Tooth Relic Temple

The Buddha Tooth Relic Temple is one of the more odd temples built in China, which also builds temples to many other gods and objects. When a Buddhist temple was first suggested for Singapore's Chinatown in the late 1980s, it was intended to develop into a more conventional temple. It eventually evolved into the Tooth Relic Temple, which serves as the repository for a Buddha tooth relic. The temple, which is situated in the heart of Chinatown, also showcases other works of Singaporean Buddhist art.

7. Night Safari

People who like to go out at night but are sick of the club scene should visit Night Safari, where nocturnal animals—not party animals—are on show. Since it was opened in 1984, it has become one of Singapore's biggest tourist destinations, with more than a million visitors per year taking a tram ride through seven different globe regions.

While viewing a display highlighting the group's efforts to protect threatened species through captive breeding programs, visitors can also take a trail walk to learn more about animal habits in another area of the attraction. Three eateries provide cuisine and entertainment that are modeled after jungle or rainforest life.

8. Clarke Quay

Another remnant of Singapore's past that is still active today is Clarke Quay. The quay at the mouth of the Singapore River, one of Singapore's top tourist destinations, served as the city's commercial center in the late 19th century.

Today, it still bustles and hustles, but with a different style of business, including hip eateries, distinctive shops, pushcart vendors, and more that combine Asian and European influences. Except for the hours of darkness, when Clarke Quay is a hive of posh nightclubs, a market is a market.

9. Resorts World Sentosa

A destination unto itself in Singapore, Resorts World Sentosa. The resort, which is on an island off the southern coast of Singapore, has hotels, dining establishments, a casino, and theme parks. In other words, it has something for people of all ages.

With this location, it is only natural that the sea be the focus of the attractions, including Marine Life Park, Dolphin Island, a water park, and an aquarium. Universal Studios Singapore and nightly entertainment are additional attractions.

Be aware that there is a dress code for the casino, which also has 2,400 slot machines and a number of table games. For guests who are hungry, the resort provides more than 60 food alternatives.
