Singapore, all the culture a large country has on a small compact island. Singapore, Singapore is a thriving, bustling, island metropolis. A tiny country filled with cultural landmarks, the best shopping in Asia and some of the tastiest and most varied food around.
Here are a few of my favourite things to do in Singapore:
Eat all the food
Head to the Golden Mile Food Centre and eat everything in sight. Whether it is Asian food, Italian food, British food, Indian food… whatever you’re after you will find it in this centre of the food universe in Singapore. All at reasonable prices. It’s a definite casual place so don’t expect any fine dining.
Shop till you drop
Head to the mall and shop to your hearts content. I treated myself to a new camera and some designer jeans when I was in Singapore and could have treated myself to a whole lot more.
Have fun at Sentosa Island
Singapore’s Universal Studios on Sentosa island is filled with fun rides and activities to keep even the most grown up adult entertained. When I visited the island they even had a full moon party. It wasn’t quite Thailand but it wasn’t far off.
Check out some high rises
It sounds silly but Singapore has some awesome high rise buildings. The boat building on stilts is a definite favourite or the UFO building (technical terms!?). Many of the city skyscrapers have bars and restaurants at the top for incredible views across the city.
Go for a walk in the park
Singapore has a surprising number of green parks. The Singapore Botanic Gardens is a favourite of mine. Perfect to escape the crazy busy city centre and wander through the botanical gardens. You can take a guided tour or follow one of the walks yourself.
There is a surprising amount to do for such a small country and this is just the tip of the iceburg. This video by the Singapore Tourism Board gives you a bit more of a taster of what Singapore has to offer.
