The sights and sounds of Singapore can be overwhelming. Before leaving for Singapore I made a list of all the things I must do before I leave the city. I do this every time I am in a new city or when I travel alone, which this was a little bit of both. I wasn’t alone, but much of the days I was exploring by myself.
No matter where you turn, you see something wonderful. It is a very clean city, so you aren’t burdened with the sights or smell of trash on the streets. I saw no homeless or beggars. Being in a quasi-benevolent-dictatorship you don’t get to see a lot of the bad things other metropolises have.
Here are some of my favorite sights of Singapore and should be on every first time visitors list (and on many returning visitors’ too).
Marina Bay Sands
Gardens by the Bay
Hawker Stall Meals
Singapore Botanic Gardens / National Orchid Gardens
Chinese Gardens Singapore
I really enjoyed my time in Singapore and can’t wait to return.
What are your favorite sights and sounds of Singapore? What is on your Singapore list? Did I miss something? Did I pick some overrated places?
