Dive a little deeper to delight in the distinct ethnic neighborhoods representing the original settlers that shaped this mesmerizing global metropolis.
Gardens by the Bay, a popular attraction in Marina Bayn, wows visitors with an eclectic mix of nature and modern city fun.

Wander the Flower Dome, an expansive greenhouse of flowers from across the globe. Don’t miss the Cloud Forest with its magnificent indoor waterfall.
Head to the Long Bar at the Raffles Hotel, where the Singapore sling was created. Around 1915, an innovative bartender concocted this well-known gin-based cocktail. He purposely used a pinkish color to make the drink socially acceptable for women to sip in public. Brilliant!

The most identifiable landmark in Singapore is the Merlion Statue in Merlion Park. The lion head represents Singapura, the city’s first name, while the fishtail is in remembrance of Singapore’s history as a small fishing town. The statue is an impressive sight at night, though the park does become quite crowded as a photo by the concrete creature is quite popular.
