A cosmopolitan atmosphere, remarkable skyline, brilliant engineering structures, astonishing gardens, magnificent landscape, and heavenly shopping centers that will warn every fashionista's heart. Singapore is one of the hottest vacation destinations today, for all the right reasons. Relatively small in size but full of attractions, the "Garden City" successfully assimilates its green vision.
This, without compromising on preserving the past or generating super-modern eco-friendly skyscrapers. This blending of the old and the new creates a unique combination of a developed country that did not abandon its Asian traditions and roots.

Join me to reveal Singapore's treasures, landmarks, museums, temples, shopping paradise, entrancing parks, colorful streets, and hidden gems. Discover famous sightseeing as Changi Airport, Gardens by the Bay, the Sentosa Island which offers exceptional watery adventure, the rustic 70's look-like island Pulau Ubin and so much more.

Attractions' Tickets


It is recommended to buy tickets to the main attractions in advance. Not only because they are very popular but also due to the Coronavirus restrictions.

We provide an option to buy tickets via GetYourGuide which offers the best prices with free cancellation.

Clarke Quay


Clarke Quay is known for its vibrant nightlife with ebullient bars, clubs, and restaurants. However, there are plenty of things to see and do in this area during the day as well. For example, you may enjoy a refreshing river cruise, visit the fascinating Asian Civilisations Museum, see Cavenagh Bridge which is one of the antique bridges in Singapore, stroll at Fort Canning Park and view the Chinese temple, Hong San See.

Bugis and Kampong Glam


Bugis and Kampong Glam are two nearby neighborhoods that are full of stores, shopping malls, and plenty of places to eat at affordable prices. Kampong Glam is considered Singapore's Muslim quarter and contains mosques and many Middle Eastern cuisine restaurants. Both neighborhoods are a vibrant bazaar of clothes, perfumes, rugs, food and so much more. Both neighborhoods have a hipster-chick, bohemian atmosphere, and a few wonderful colorful streets that are perfect spots to take photos and selfies and share with others by social media.

Pulau Ubin


Pulau Ubin (Granite Stone in Malay) is a lovely island with 60's -70's rustic characteristics that contain very few residents and is a wonderful day trip for nature lovers. Visiting Pulau Ubin will make you feel like you are inside of a nostalgic postcard from the past. This island is very different than modern Singapore, therefore it is advised:
• Take comfortable walking shoes
• Bring a bottle of water and some snacks
• Ensure you have enough cash (there are no ATMs at Pulau Ubin)
• Have mosquito repellent
• Rent bicycle (with a lock) for easy trip navigation

Changi Airport


Considered the best airport in the world and one of the busiest, Changi Airport is itself a thrilling travel adventure. If you have the time before leaving wonderful Singapore, dedicate some time touring the many attractions of this exceptional airport that offers almost anything, from massage, cinema, art installations, gardens, playgrounds, innovative architecture, waterfalls, shopping, and so much more.
