Top Singapore Tips - Your Unmissable Highlights of Singapore

    Singapore is a feast for the senses, from the wide array of food stalls to exploring the city by day and night. But what are the absolute must-do features of this cosmopolitan city-state?

    We asked you over on our Facebook page for your top tips on what is unmissable in Singapore. Here's what you told us...



    Go on a Night Safari

    Sunday Hazar Özcan says:

    Of course , it is Night Safari at midnight. If it is under rain, gonna be more fantastic.

    nach-holland.de says:

    Walking through the night zoo. But walking, not with the tourist train.

    Kate Williams says:

    Night Safari at the zoo!! Amazing.



    Savour all the local foods...

    Jarod Choo says:

    Hanging out on Upper Thompson Road for the best Roti countrywide or local food court for just a chicken rice.

    Koh Leong Foo says:

    Have a very affordable feast at a hawker (food) centre...

    Angele Koh says:

    Go try the local food! Laksa, char kway teow, satay, chill crab, durian, chicken rice, nasi lemak, etc.

    Felipe Gómez Alborno says:

    Geylang road for the best exotic fruits! Don't miss the local Chinese/Thai restaurants. One of the best foods in Southeast Asia!

    Filip Turowski says:

    Food stalls in Chinatown (peanut soup <3).

    Tong Cheuk Fung says:

    Go visit Geylang for late night supper.

    Donald Kresna Antonio Pereira says:

    Eat at a local foodcourt! Not at the ones on Orchard Road, but the ones near residential areas! It's very cheap and delicious!

    Syed Aliff says:

    Good [food] at Simpang Bedok! You'll be spoilt for choice!



    ...especially in Little India

    Shane Westmore says:

    Go to one of those hawker food places and join the end of the longest line. I did that at Little India and the meal was amazing.

    Michael Gray says:

    Visit Little India for a curry. Be brave. Sit with the locals on a shared table and most importantly - use your fingers!

    Carlos Lozano says:

    Walk through Little India.

    Matt McCaughan says:

    An evening meal in little India. Great food and friendly.

    Pawan Pardeshi says:

    All nice hostels in Little India only. Easy access, nice food, and everything around the corner.

    Carrie Shoultz says:

    Little India!

    Miguel Rosas says:

    Eat at little India. Go for The Jungle Tandoor restaurant; definitely the best...

    Dani Gross says:

    Little India!

    Lauren Sadler says:

    Little India is fantastic for a good cheap curry and it has a vibrant atmosphere at night.



    See the bay by night

    Nico Corazza says:

    Go walking to Marina Bay at night.

    Jordan 'Jordio' Smith says:

    The marina is definitely the place to be.

    Anne-Kathrin Weber says:

    Gardens by the bay are great and you need to watch the water-light show at the bay at night.



    Catch the best view over the city

    Casi Contreras Gerber says:

    Go to Ku Dé Ta Bar at the top of Marina Bay Sands to check out the views for free or grab a beer for the same price as the entry fee. At least you get a drink out of it! Be sure to dress in the best you have in your backpack.

    Greg Colgin says:

    Don't pay the silly fees to go to the Marina Bay Sands rooftop but put on some reasonable clothing and head up to the bar - take in the views and leave! Saved myself some serious dollar!

    Jonathan Mitchell says:

    Sky Bar! Best view in the city.



    Get out into nature

    Justin Mingus says:

    If you get tired of the city you have to visit MacRitchie Reservoir. I studied abroad in SG for six months and never got tired of it. Great trails, monkeys jumping around, an awesome suspension bridge and a little bit of serenity in the chaos that is Singapore.

    Ksymena Gwiazda says:

    Amazing Botanical Gardens with their orchid section.

    Theo Pessireron says:

    Bukit Timah Nature Reserve is also a nice park for a hike through a cool piece of rainforest where you also can see monkeys roaming free. [Also,] walk the Southern Ridges to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

    Erlina Prastyastuty says:

    Take a trail of three parks that are connected in The Southern Ridges (Mt. Faber Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park, Kent Ridge Park).



    And that's not all... You can find even more great tips from our Facebook fans here and here. Hopefully these top tips will help you make to most of your visit to Singapore.
