Some of the main tourist attractions include:
Orchard Road has been voted one of the top shopping streets in the world, often compared to Paris’ Champs-Élysées and New York’s Fifth Avenue. It’s famous for a good reason - it’s home to nearly 800,000 sqm of luxury and high-street retailers. There are also top-notch dining and nightlife places where you can unwind after a long day of meetings.
Marina Bay is home to luxury hotels, exclusive nightlife spots, fine dining destinations and world-class theatre venues - all of which are connected by a beautiful waterfront promenade. Be sure to walk along the bay for scenic views, which are especially breathtaking in the evening.
Central Business District
Adjacent to Marina Bay and City Hall, Singapore’s financial core is an attesting mix of towering, shiny skyscrapers right next to restored historical landmarks. In recent years, this area has become more buzzing than ever as fine restaurants, vibrant bars and retailers set up shop here.
During the colonial days of yore, the Singapore River was a bustling hub for entrepot trade. Today, the 3km river, consisting of Clarke Quay, Boat Quay and Robertson Quay is abuzz, this time with an interesting array of cultural, dining and nightlife spots. Take a ride on the River Taxi and explore the uniqueness of each Quay.
The southern neighbourhood of Harbourfront is the gateway to Sentosa, a 500-hectare island resort located just 15 minutes away from the central business and shopping districts. The precinct is an agglomeration of attractions, retail shops, dining options and nightly shows.
Designated as a conservation precinct, Chinatown has, over the years, cultivated its own unique identity. Its well-preserved and historical shophouses, converted into modern bars and restaurants, are a charming blend of old and new.
A cacophony of car horns, bicycle bells and vibrant chatter of its residents, Little India is one of the most vibrant and culturally authentic districts of Singapore. Take in the sights, sounds and smells of the area as you immerse yourself in a truly Indian experience.
This residential estate, which was built in the 1930s and is one of the oldest of its kind in Singapore, is well-loved by locals for its art deco apartment blocks and shophouses, its idyllic charm and the vibrant new dining and lifestyle concepts that have set up shop here in recent years.
Apart from being one of Singapore’s most important science and technology clusters, with key research hubs like Biopolis and Fusionopolis, One-North also offers plenty of great lifestyle options. With plenty of lush green spaces and dining enclaves like Rochester Park, this precinct is a real breath of fresh air.
Full of old world charm and character, Changi is so much more than Singapore’s world-famous Changi Airport and the business parks dotting its wide green spaces. Apart from modern amenities and lifestyle options, you can also opt to venture farther and discover the idyllic Changi Village that’s seldom found in guidebooks.
