1. UNWIND AT THE MARINA BAY SANDS
The Marina Bay Sands is one of the most unique landmark hotels in Southeast Asia. It's made up of three towers of luxury hotel rooms joined together by a large rooftop infinity pool on level 57. The rooftop terrace offers panoramic views of the city and is the perfect place to catch the sunset after your day of exploring the city. Unfortunately, the hotel does not allow guests to use the infinity pool, but you can still get a glimpse of the innovative pool at one of the several restaurants and bars on level 57.
Fun Fact: The two, very exclusive Chairman Suites at the Marina Bay Sands are 629 square meters each. That's bigger than the size of 2 tennis courts!
2. TAKE A STROLL THROUGH GARDENS BY THE BAY
Gardens by the Bay is Singapore's main park and a worldwide famous attraction, but the garden is no regular park. Walking through the gardens you'll enter a place that seems like a fairytale land. You can wander beneath the Supertrees, make your way through the Cloud Forest, and take a stroll through the Flower Dome. You probably have no clue what each of those are, so let me explain:
Supertree Grove: A vertical garden of tree structures measuring 25-50 meters tall. The trees are covered with over 162,900 plants, ranging from tropical flowers to ferns and climbers.
Cloud Forest: A 35-metre-tall mountain veiled in mist. The Cloud Forest mountain is covered in lush vegetation and features the world’s tallest indoor waterfall.
Flower Dome: The largest glass greenhouse in the world, featuring a changing display of flowers and plants from the Mediterranean and semi-arid regions.
3. CHECK OUT THE SINGAPORE ZOO
The Singapore Zoo is one of the world's finest rainforest zoos, allowing visitors to walk through animal exhibits. It features over 315 species of animals, including many that are endangered. Most animals at the Singapore Zoo are not contained to steel cages. Instead, their enclosures are spacious and surrounded by concealed moats, creating a more natural environment for the animals and making it a widely popular tourist attraction. The zoo also features the Singapore River Safari which is Asia's first and only river-themed wildlife park. You could easily spend a whole day at the Singapore Zoo, so make sure to bring your walking shoes if you do decide to check it out!
4. VISIT SENTOSA ISLAND
Sentosa is a popular island off the southern coast of Singapore which was built primarily for leisure and relaxation. The island features a collection of white sand beaches, theme parks, golf, shopping, and restaurants. Sentosa can be reached by road or cable car and is the perfect place to have some relaxation time after all your city sightseeing.
