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.
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:
Miguel Rosas says:
Eat at little India. Go for The Jungle Tandoor restaurant; definitely the best...
Dani Gross says:
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).
