Adventures In The Island State: 10 Things To Do In Singapore
21 Oct 2019
This epic theme park has more than just rides, although there are 28 of those to get around – we challenge you! Thrill-seekers won’t want to miss the Battlestar Galactica rollercoaster's underground loops. Wander the streets and you might bump into Batman or some cheeky Minions. We recommend sticking around until the end of the day. A carnival of illuminated characters lights up Main Street before the dazzling fireworks finale.
Pick up a Universal Studios day pass with a Klook-exclusive free shuttle bus from the city. Now that's movie-star treatment.
These three waterfront gardens cover a space the size of 125 football pitches – now that’s a lot of photo opportunities. The Flower Dome hosts magnolia and olive trees in its warm Mediterranean climate, while the Cloud Forest has 35 metre-high indoor waterfall. In the Floral Fantasy zone it's wall-to-wall with rainbow blooms. Can you pick a favourite?
For a bird's eye shot of all three, head up to the OCBC Skyway. It's all included in this handy Klook combo package. You're welcome.
Home to an astounding 100,000 creatures, this sea life centre is South East Asia’s biggest. Spread over ten zones and 50 habitats, you can spot every species from patterned leopard sharks to sleek manta rays. Huge ocean-viewing windows put you – almost! – nose to nose with creeping hammerhead sharks and adorable bottlenose dolphins.
With all that marine life to spot, there's no time to wait. Book through Klook to skip the lines.
Ever wanted to eat your eggs alongside an orangutan? Yes, you read that right. With the zoo's Jungle Breakfast you'll tuck in as these furry, orange primates swing through the 'treeway' to start their day.
If you’re more of a night owl, head into the zoo after dark and hop aboard a Night Safari tram. Your guide will point out species like the sabre-toothed clouded leopard and towering Asian elephant. It's your chance to experience these animals' mysterious nighttime routines.
Prefer to visit by day? Grab a day pass on Klook to start discovering the 2,800 animals at your own pace.
Fascinated by all things futuristic? Take a trip around this modern museum. You'll wander through 170,000 LED light strands and past immersive projections to learn about how technology and creativity come together. The interactive experiences in the other 21 exhibition spaces change all the time, so there's always something new to discover.
Before you enter, look up! The lotus-shaped building represents a hand welcoming you to Singapore. The fingertips are designed to cast natural light into each of the galleries. Skip the queues and book ahead with Klook.
Can’t get enough of that glittering skyline? See it from a fresh perspective atop this 165 metre-tall Ferris wheel. You'll get a revolving panorama across to the Gardens by the Bay and the Singapore Strait's swells beyond. Back on the city side, spot the 41-storey Millenia Tower and the Marina Bay Street Circuit F1 track.
You can dial up the luxury and dine while you ride. A butler will serve a sumptuous international or Chinese four-course menu in your private capsule. How about that for dinner with a view?
To experience this bustling metropolis at a slower speed, climb aboard a river cruise. Before you board, get a shot of your cute 'bumboat' vessel – a colourful reminder of the city's trading past. Sit under the canopy and watch Singapore life sail by or catch some sun out on deck. You'll pass sights like the proud Merlion fountain and Marina Bay Sands with its 'floating' rooftop pool.
Like what you see? With your ticket you can jump off at any of the jetties on the 40-minute route to explore on foot.
Know your Liu Kang from your Georgette Chen? You will after an intro to the 8,000 works on show at the National Gallery – featuring local maestros and famous names from around Asia. It's a good spot to take a break from the heat and get clued up on contemporary and classical art. The gallery also plays host to plenty of regular artists' talks, so you can hear all the inspiration behind your favourite pieces.
Klook your entrance ticket for instant email confirmation, then just flash your mobile voucher on your way in.
There's plenty on Singapore's resort island to keep you entertained – and to fill your photo album too. Climb the eight-metre Merlion statue, which is the tallest one in Singapore, for sweeping views over the city. The half-fish, half-lion statue is said to bring good luck, so remember to make a wish! We recommend staying past sunset for the Wings of Time show. This light, laser and music extravaganza is set on water and tells a story of friendship and courage.
The Sentosa FUN Pass offers unlimited fun at a bargain with tokens that you can use to redeem for more than 20 activities on Sentosa!
What better way to appreciate Marina Bay than on one of these gliding, two-wheeled motors? Hop on and weave between the sights, getting all the insider knowledge from your guide along the way. They'll also help you find your balance if you're new to these scooters – it might be a bit tricky at first, but you'll soon be zooming along the pathways!
Klook a mini Segway tour to choose between a two or three-hour trip. You'll curve and swerve around the domed Esplanade theatre and Merlion Park on the longer expedition. Selfie alert!
