Top 5 spots to visit in Singapore!
If time is of the essence, why spend it alone?
This, for now is my top 5 to do in Singapore. There are a lot of things you can do in their island country and you can almost do everything you want in no time! Thanks to their very efficient way of transportation and to the disciplined people.
SG, according to recent news is one of the richest country in the world as of 2012. No one would question that, from the beautiful skyscrapers, very clean surroundings, to how they efficiently use their time and resources, there's no wonder why this Lion City made it to the list.
I'm glad that my cousin was there when I visited, I couldn't imagine taking photos of myself alone in this beautiful place. :-)
Top 5. Mount Faber
Mount Faber is just a few steps away from the place I stayed in. Perfect for jogging and picture-taking. When you think that singapore is all skyscrapers, think again.
This is also where people go if they want to try the cable car that is connected to the Sentosa Island.
I remember seeing a skunk near Henderson bridge. It is also a beauty! and my cousin told me that singaporeans like it that way. Just like the Snake bridge, they want their structures built with consideration to beauty function and quality.
Top 4. Sentosa Island/ Lake of Dreams
Located in the south of Singapore, this is where you can see the Resorts World Singapore, Siloso Beach and the Universal Studios.
But I believe only a few knows that there is a fountain and lights show just near the Casino and USS.
The show lasts for 30 to 45 mins, with a nice simple story you have to hear for yourself.
Top 3. Night Safari Singapore
Inside, what will welcome you is a bar where you can have your first Singapore Sling while watching fire dancers.
Watch a few minutes then look for the queue that will take you to the animal show wherein you'll see indian wolves, hyenas, and adorable otters that were taught how to recycle!
End the night by riding the tram that will take you to an hour-long tour inside the zoo. Do not, no, never try flash photography! Animals inside include wild water buffalos, gigantic Nile hippos, the king of the jungle staring at your tram from just a few meters, wolves and hyenas.
I almost forgot, just beside Night Safari is the Singapore Zoo. Where I first saw a penguin and a kangaroo. :)
Top 2. The Universal Studios Singapore
My cousin warned me when she handed my ticket, she said "take a rest, it will be an exhausting day, we have to be early". The park closes early in the evening, so come early and look for the mascots right away, take it easy on riding the roller coasters - just a piece of advice.
I enjoyed the roller coaster rides inside the park, one of them was even setup indoors. If you want to be a kid again and feel the rush, this definitely is the place to be.
Top. 1 Merlion Park
The country's Icon.
Going there, you will see the 3 towers with a ship on top of it. This is how most people describe the Marina Bay Sands. When you take a picture, you might want to zoom a little to take a photo of the Lotus-shaped Museum, they call it the ArtScience Museum, and when you zoom out, and position yourself at the exact place where I am in the photo, you will have, the back of the Merlion, the Singapore Flyer, the ArtScience Museum, and the Marina Bay sands.
P.S. it is really hard to take a photo of yourself in the merlion park, again this is the country's icon so expect a lot of tourists everyday. This, by the way, is the same reason why I decided to have my picture taken at the back of the Merlion. I will have my new top 5 when I come back to SG. Cheers! :-)
