5 Places You Should Visit In Singapore

There are so many things to do and see in any destination and we all want to make sure we see visit the must-see sites and landmarks. If you're planning a visit to Singapore, here's a few places you should add to your itinerary.

Gardens by the Bay 
With amazing skyline views of Marina Bay, this 101-hectare super park offers a stunning waterfront promenade surrounded by lush lawns and exceptional flora and fauna. The Gardens are incredibly photogenic and make a great spot to spend a lazy afternoon picnicking or simply lying on a blanket and absorbing the beautiful surroundings. 

Merlion Park 
Merlion Park is most notable for its statue of Singapore's national icon which gives the park its name. The 28-foot-high Merlion statue has the head of a lion and the body of a fish and symbolises the city's traditional origins as a fishing village. The statue is made even more eye-catching by the stream of water that spurts from its mouth.

Marina Barrage
Enjoy panoramic views of Singapore at the Marina Barrage Dam which is built at the point where five rivers meet across the mouth of the Marina Channel. Delight in a picnic with friends and family, go kite-flying or just spend a few moments enjoying the scenery. The Marina Barrage is a perfect example of Singapore's harmony between nature and technology.

Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum
Home to the Sacred Buddha Tooth Relic, this Buddhist temple and museum allows you to learn about the rich history and culture of Buddhism. Found in the heart of China Town in a stupa consisting of 310 kilograms of gold donated by devotees, visitors can tour through all four floors in search of knowledge.

Henderson Waves Bridge
The Henderson Waves Bridge is Singapore's highest pedestrian bridge at 36 metres above the ground. In keeping with Singapore's design-savvy architecture, this bridge consists of shell-like niches where pedestrians are able to sit and observe their surroundings. Due to its unique shape, the bridge provides privacy and room to rest, making it a popular spot on weekends for couples, families and children and joggers.
