Singapore: Iconic sights, Mix Of Cultures, Business Crossroad, Tour Of Attractions In Singapore
Iconic sights a Singapore first-timer shouldn’t miss. Here you’ll find a mix of the big attractions, some charming local neighbourhoods and lesser-known sights, capped off with suggestions for feeding your hungry belly at the end of a long day exploring. All you have to do is get to it!
Singapore is a country which is small in demographical area and wide in its economic status, in South East Asia. It is a country blend with a variety of cultures as there are individuals from countries like Malaysia, Chinese, Indian and Europe.
Small and heavily populated, Singapore is an easy place to explore; nothing in the city is more than an hour from the business district. Thanks to modern construction and outstanding architecture, Singapore is rapidly becoming a powerhouse trade city, but it maintains ties to its Asian roots through traditional temples and many cultural hotspots, like Little India and Kampong Glam.
Your Singapore tour must include the
Botanical Gardens and Orchid Gardens, both beautiful and notable places to visit. The Botanical Gardens are also home to a rare patch of dense primeval rainforest, accessible via an atmospheric boardwalk
If you’re a fan of exotic animals, stop by the Singapore Zoo and check in with its 300-plus species that take up residence there. You can also take a “bumboat” from Changi Beach to Pulau Ubin, set away from the bustling city, and delight in its quiet mangroves.
Southern Ridges – The idyllic leafy shade of Kent Ridge quickly gives way to the wide-open gardens of Hort Park . This park has more than a horrid name and a lack of shelter from the merciless sun. Walk past prototype glasshouses filled with all manner of flora. There are inter-active displays for kids to learn about exciting gardening methods (hydroponics is cool kids!).
Peranakan Museum – Explore the rich, fusion heritage of the Peranakans (Straits-born locals) at this superlative museum. Thematic galleries cover various aspects of Peranakan culture, from the traditional 12-day wedding ceremony, to Peranakan crafts, spirituality and feasting. Look out for extraordinarily detailed ceremonial costumes and beadwork, beautifully carved wedding beds, and rare dining porcelain. An especially curious example of the Peranakans’ fusion culture is a pair of Victorian bell jars, in which statues of Christ and the Madonna are adorned with Chinese-style flowers and vines.
No Singapore sightseeing is complete without a visit to Marina Bay, a glowing, high-tech vision of the future, or Orchard Road, which boasts enough shopping to keep you occupied for several rainy afternoons.
Hope you will enjoy as much as I have.
