Singapore 24 hrs


If you only have one single day to explore Singapore, just don't miss some places i thought you MUST visit. Check this out!

1. Merlion

As Singapore's icon, Merlion park is the must visit place in Singapore. Located in marina bay area, not far from Fullerton Hotel, the best time to visit this place is in the afternoon-evening. Because it will be very hot if you visit in the morning-noon.
The easiest way to get here is by MRT and choose Raffless Place Station and choose UOB plaza exit. Just walk towards Fullerton Hotel then cross the street. It takes approx 5-7 mins walk.




2. Marina Bay sands skypark

Standing at the roof tom from high rise building is one of the best experience in Singapore. Located in 55th floor of Marina bay hotel, this place is awsome. You can see Singapore from the top. Please come here after 5 pm. You will see the amazing view from here.
You can use MRT to get here. Exit at promenade (circle line) then you should take approx 10 mins walks.




3. Boat quay + cavanaugh bridge

It is one of my favorite spot in Singapore. Just come to Boat quay around 4 pm. It is the perfect place for enjoying the scenery around the river. Here you can find 'singapore ice cream', the cutting ice cream covered with bread.  If you want to try singapore river cruise, you can find the ticket booth here. Looking for  place to hangout? You can find many cafes here. Or if you just want to take some pictures of you, you can find some beautiful spots here. Fullerton, cavanaugh bridge, and...off course the river!


4. Clark quay
Clark quay at night is the perfect place to visit before you leave Singapore tomorrow morning. There are some attractions you could try, like reverse bungy or extreme swing. This place also has variety of cafes and restaurants. But it also be okay if you just want to sit and enjoy the night.
You can ride MRT to get here and exit at clark quay station



5. Chinatown (pagoda street)
This place is the one of the must visiting street market in Singapore. It is the best place for shopping, especially for chinnese stuff and the best place for your culinary adventure. The interesting part of this place is although this place is known as chinatown, but  in the end of the street you can find Sri Mariamman Temple, the biggest Indian temple in Singapore.
From Chinatown MRT station, choose exit to Pagoda Street.

6. Orchard Rd


Who doesn't know Orchard Road? The most famous shopping district you must visit in Singapore. Lot of malls will absolutely tease you to 'invest' your dollars into clothes, jewelerry, fashion, etc.
This street has three MRT station: Dhoby Gaut, Orchard, and Sommerset.
But do you know that Istana or official residence and office of Singapore President is in this street?




7. Bugis


Bugis is not only Bugis Junction or Bugis street, the best and largest place for buying some souvenirs. This area is next to Kampong Glam and Albert St + Waterloo St for exploring the area on foot. There, you can find Sri Krishnan Temple and Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho. At night, you can find food stalls in Bugis area that sell cheap food.
Sounds perfect for backpackers, huh!
If you want to go here just take MRT and exit at Bugis station.




8. Esplanade

Esplanade is performing art venue but it is worth to visit and shot some pictures there. The shape of the building is unique and it's called 'Durian' shape.
Just take MRT and exit at Esplanade station or City Hall station. You can also take bus to get here.



9. Gardens by the bay
The newest attraction in Marina Bay Area is Gardens by the bay. The nice place to enjoy Singapore. Just walk in the garden or ride the shuttle bus to get to the conservatory.
Just take the MRT to Bayfront (circle line) and then take exit B and follow the sign/




Enjoy your 24 hrs Singapore trip!
