Need Advice: Three Days in Singapore!

I’m taking a bit of a last minute trip to Singapore – spending just about three days, no less.  A true Singapore Weekend.  This will be my first trip to the city.  Since my time is so limited, I’d love to get some advice from people who have been before.  What do you recommend?  Where should I eat? What should I skip?

My initial thoughts:

  • A bike tour is a must. I love biking in new cities – we just did Bruges and Ghent a few weeks ago.
  • Explore a Hawker Centre or two
  • Eat Chili Crab
  • Explore to Bontanic Gardens
  • Grab a Singapore Sling at the Raffles Hotel (it’s actually under reno, but they have a pop up shop available)
  • Try the Chilli Padi Mary at the St. Regis (I love trying the different recipes offered all over the world)
  • Swim at the infinity pool at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel (how can I accomplish this without staying there?)
  • Dine at the only Michelin Starred Food Stalls

What am I missing?  Any museums I must see?  What is your favorite Singapore destination?  Where do you dine?


  1. Hello Tim. I went to Singapore ten years ago. The situation was probably different with now. I wrote it in my blog. Probably you want to check there. Just to give you another idea. Here’s the link: https://stories-of-wanderer.com/category/singapore/

      Thank you Nurul! Enjoyed the read from your blog too. I’ll keep you posted on my selections. Thanks again!

  2. Hi Tim! I guess for 3 days, you should head down to top rated attractions in Singapore. I’ll list them a few.
    -Gardens by the Bay (Flower Dome and Cloud Forest)
    -Marina Bay Sands. The pool can only be accessed by Guest. Perhaps you may want to get a ticket up to the Sands SkyPark. The view of Singapore’s skyline looks stunning during the sunset.
    -Try out local dishes at Lau Pa Sat Food Hawker Centre.
    – If you’re into Art, head down to National Gallery of Singapore (Former Supreme Court and City Hall building). You will appreciate the neoclassical architecture.
    -Learn Singapore history at National Museum of Singapore.
    -Artscience Museum (Marvel Studios and Future World exhibition)

      Great Listing! Thanks for the guidance. I’m definitely adding a couple of these to my list. I love taking in the skyline and at dusk, it sounds amazing.

    I lived in Singapore for 5 years… Nurul gave a good list of places to see.

    You should walk around Marina Bay at Night.

    I went to SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands before leaving in 2011 and it was right around sunset, view was beautiful, ticket was worth it.

    Try Chili Crab at No Signboard or Jumbo Seafood.

    Have a fun trip!

      Thank you! Sunset at MBS is definitely on my list, I’ve heard it is just amazing. I really needed a proper recommendation on WHERE to get Chili Crab, so this is exactly what I needed. I can’t wait to explore this city. Thanks for the guidance!
