Singapore is a melting pot of people from all over the world. Situated fewer than 100 miles north of the equator, Singapore is a city-state with one large island and 63 smaller islands. Amazingly, Singapore went from being a developing nation into a developed country within three decades. It is an amazing feat that many countries have been unable to do after longer timespans.

The Southeast Asian country is renowned for being incredibly modern. Skyscrapers kiss the wild blue yonder while major financial institutions and international corporations make their homes in Singapore.

Often called “a playground for the rich”, Singapore offers travelers to Asia something unique. It isn’t the backpacker haven Thailand and Vietnam are for travelers. It is a land of luxury hotels, five-star restaurants, and one of Formula One’s high profile Grand Prix races of the year. Over 19 million foreign tourists visited Singapore in 2019, and the number is bound to increase as the years go by.

Top Tourist Attractions

Marina Bay Sands

Marina Bay Sands has one of the most unique designs in the world and is instantly recognizable even if travelers have never been there. Opened in 2010, the resort and casino is one of the most popular luxurious attractions in Singapore. Marina Bay Sands contains a mall, museum, two large theaters, restaurants owned by notable celebrity chefs, two floating Crystal Pavilions, art-science exhibits, and the world’s largest atrium casino. It is an all-in-one destination.

Ultimate Drive

Petrolheads can get behind the wheel of a supercar on one of F1’s official racetracks. The Ultimate Drive Experience gives drivers the chance to test their skills driving a Ferrari or Lamborghini supercar. Drivers can choose from four high-speed packages including a street circuit tour, Street Freeway Tour, Ultimate Freeway Tour, or the Singapore Explorer. Each experience offers its own quirks that drivers will love. All four give petrolheads the chance to drive on Singapore’s Marina Bay F1 Street Circuit. Drivers can choose to drive or sit shotgun as an experienced instructor speeds around the circuit.

Singapore Flyer

Travelers looking for a great view of Singapore will find it at the Singapore Flyer. The Ferris wheel is the 2nd largest observation wheel in the world and gives riders the chance to see for miles with views extending to Malaysia and Indonesia. Visitors to the Singapore Flyer can also visit the Journey of Dreams exhibit to learn about Singapore’s amazing history. A ride on the Singapore Flyer will take 30 minutes.

Located next to the zoo, visitors will wander the footpaths while viewing over 120 animal species. The darkness gives a very different feeling to the one offered during daylight hours. It can be spooky and fun all at the same time.
