How many will you cross off this list, including the most incredible sights, locations, and other enjoyable activities?
1. A stroll at Gardens by the Bay
The two conservatories, the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest, and the stunning, recognisable Supertree forests, are what make Gardens by the Bay so famous. The Flower Dome has a variety of succulent species, seasonal flowers including cherry blossoms, sunflowers, and even lavenders, as well as constantly shifting seasonal displays.
The Garden Rhapsody Light and Sound event takes place at night, which is the ideal time to see the Supertree Grove. To wander through the trees and take in the sights from the top, go to the OCBC Skyway.
2. Picnic at the Marina Barrage
Marina Barrage is one of the best locations to picnic with loved ones! Bring your four-legged friend along and fly a kite on the rooftop’s ample grassy space. Gather a picnic basket and enjoy the breathtaking Singapore skyline as the sun sets.
3. Visit the ArtScience Museum
If you have curious young children, the location to visit for picture-perfect scenes is the ArtScience Museum. Our favourite feature of the Crystal Universe, which houses the teamLAB exhibition Future World: Where Art Meets Science, is the 170,000 LED lights. You’ll have the impression that you’ve been taken to another planet!
You may also explore a world of art, science, culture, and technology across 21 exhibition spaces, so your visit will be fascinating, enthralling, and instructive from the moment you walk in.

Additionally, there are several eateries nearby, including Mel’s Drive-In and Starbucks.
9. Go bungy jumping at AJ Hacket
If you’ve been wanting to go bungy jumping, you can finally cross it off your bucket list at AJ Hacket. Swan dive down as you enjoy beach views after leaping from 34 metres above the water.

The Singapore Cable Car is one of the most incredible ways to experience Singapore’s Southern District’s sights! Take in the panoramic views of Sentosa and Mount Faber, one of Singapore’s oldest hilltops. If you time your ride with the sunset, your photos will have a stunning background.
13. Visit Madame Tussauds
The wax statues at Madame Tussauds may not accurately represent the real people they’re modelled after, but they undoubtedly resemble them almost exactly!

16. Go on a Mega Adventure
At the Mega Adventure, take a risk and zip across Sentosa’s white sandy beaches and thick jungle canopy. If travelling at up to 60 km/h isn’t exhilarating enough for you, you can opt to ride upside down instead.
