The Ultimate Singapore Things to do – Travel Guide
On one hand, Singapore is a junction point for several ethnic groups. Visiting the ethnic neigborhoods is something we highly recommend! Chinatown is an attraction by itself, with its restored shop houses that offer a different aspect to shopping in the city. It holds the Sri Mariamman and the Buddha Tooth Relic temples, which are free to visit and a culturally fascinating. Little India is another such place, with Tamil cultural elements and aspects of other cultures. Little India’s shops and houses are the icon of the city, and the Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple is Little India’s busiest and oldest temple, dating back to 1881. Both districts offer great and exotic foods, that you really should not miss!
On the other hand, Singapore is highly technological. Many of the Singapore things to do are extremely advanced; most noticeable is the SkyPark, a huge park that is located on a sky terrace that connects three 55-story hotel towers in the Marina Bay Sands Resort. The SkyPark holds a shopping mall, with a casino, many chef restaurants and a grand theater. You can also swim in the world’s longest elevated swimming pool. Sentosa Island should also be mentioned, as it holds an amazing Underwater World experience, 4D Magix movie theatre, Skyline Luge, the Butterfly Park and many other attractions, for different and various age groups. To observe it all, we highly recommend a ride on the Singapore Flyer, the world’s largest observation wheel, from where you can see the city-state from as high as 165 meters in the air, some 30 meters higher than the London Eye!
