If you want to know all about the best things to see and do in Singapore, then this is THE most comprehensive guide. I’ve found the coolest activities, the best tourist attractions, the must-do activities, the “can’t miss” points of interest and the most unusual places in Singapore.

Without a doubt, the top 5 attractions in Singapore are the iconic things to do such as Gardens by the Bay, Marina Bay Sands, the Singapore Flyer, the hawker centres (Maxwell, Newton or Chinatown Complex) and Jewel shopping centre at Changi Airport.

Of course, everyone’s priorities are different. If you have children, you probably wouldn’t be very popular if you didn’t manage to squeeze in a trip to Singapore Zoo and/or Universal Studios/Sentosa Island.

So, to help you decide what should be on your itinerary, I’ve put together detailed articles on what you can see and do in Singapore with all of the information about opening hours, ticket prices and how to get there.

To see all of the details organised by place, check out my area guides. There’s also a comprehensive list of hotels in different areas and budgets.

I try to keep this listing up to date but please use the “more information” links at the end of each listing to check opening hours and prices.
