Number 5: Botanic Garden

Singapore  Botanic Garden if you haven’t caught on by now Singapore has a lot of gardens and there’s no shame in it.

The Singapore Botanic Garden has been around for more than 150 years and made it on to the Unesco world heritage site list back in 2015.  Sir Stamford Raffles was a botanist and naturist after all and prior to his introduction to gardening the island was not really well-suited for agriculture and relied too much on foreign trade.

Number 6: Singapore Flyer

Singapore Flyer it may have been inspired by the infamous London Eye but it’s roughly 100 feet taller and feels right at home by the water. Not just a ferris wheel but a giant observation mill just so we keep the story straight. Over the past 12 plus years, this has become one of the biggest tourist attractions in all of Asia and one round trip on the wheel lasts for approximately 30 minutes. They even have an option to take down a cold glass of the famous Singapore sling cocktail while making you go around or if you prefer you can have a meal at night time where you can book a fancy dinner in one of the observation cars and have one of the best views of any cityscape anyway.

Number 7: Singapore river safari

Singapore river safari and if you think about an aquarium but with all of the attractions being dedicated to just freshwater river creatures this is it.

Additionally, there are themed rides for people of all ages to explore and learn about various freshwater habitats from around the world.

Number 8: Resort World Sentosa

It’s not actually just an aquarium. It’s an ocean area and unless you’ve been here before. Knowing the difference might be hard to understand more than 100 thousand animals call the easier aquarium home and the teams that take care of the wildlife are dedicated to assisting in the conservation oceanic plants and wildlife around the world. On-site there is also the adventure Cove waterpark and many other attractions.

Number 9: Universal Studios Singapore

Pretty much the same as any other Universal Studios it’s worth going to if you’re in the area. It’s a great place to let loose have a little bit of adventure. But if theme parks are not really your cup of coffee there’s still plenty else to do around town.

Number 10: Merlion Park

Merlion Park is the park that pays homage to the potential reason for the name of Singapore.  Most likely originating from the Malay term Singapura meaning lion land the merlion is a fish-like hybrid of the lion and a fish think mermaid but with the Lions of the body this strange creature is very symbolic to the people of Singapore and it has undergone much care since its original construction. it was even once struck by lightning. Which caused enough damage to put it out of commission for a few years.
