A Trip To Singapore

When considering plans for a short vacation, Singapore would be a good destination to include on your list. There is no visa required if you visit this beautiful city-state and there are many low-cost airlines to take you there.

Singapore’s Changi International Airport is one of the best airports in the world. Even if you’re just having a stopover and waiting for your connecting flight, you will not get bored. You can even avail of the free city tour if you have about 5 hours before your next flight. But it’s only a quick tour to introduce you to the city of Singapore.

Spending at least two days would enable you to visit Singapore’s best tourist attractions. You need about a day to tour Sentosa Island and another day to tour around the city.

Going to Sentosa Island, you can take the cable car from Mount Faber. After the breath-taking cable car ride, the next destination is the Merlion. Going up the huge Merlion statue would give you a nice panoramic view of Sentosa Island.

Dolphin Show

One of the best attractions on Singapore’s Sentosa island that you should not miss is the Underwater World, an oceanarium featuring several species of marine animals – sharks, stingrays, tropical fish and other colourful marine creatures. Leaving Underwater World, you can proceed to the Dolphin Show to witness those dolphins showing amazing tricks. Then after that, you can spend some time strolling along the nice beach areas while waiting for your last Sentosa stop – the Songs of the Sea which replaced the Musical Fountain show and would start around 7pm.

After enjoying Sentosa Island, you should prepare for the next day’s itinerary to explore the city. You can include on your list a visit to the Merlion Park and the Esplanade which are near to each other. From the City Hall train station, you can just walk to those attractions. The other places that you can visit are China Town, Little India, Orchard, Bugis, Jurong Bird Park and Night Safari. Those places are very accessible by train which is the cheaper way of going around the city.

So I believe it would be worth a try if you haven’t yet visited Singapore – the progressive, multicultural  Lion City and sometimes called the “Fine City.”
