Things to do in Singapore

#Singapore is firmly atop the list of best places to visit, and it makes a great spot to take your #family on holiday. Singapore has a charm and exuberance that is hard to put into words, but I've tried my best to list some things that can't be missed. Don't miss out on a chance to explore the #beaches on a trip over to Sentosa Island, treat yourself to a nocturnal adventure, swim in a #rooftop pool and pamper your taste buds with some amazing #foodanddrink.


Situated strategically in South-East Asia, Singapore is rightly known for its advanced economy and multifarious culture. Traces of this multicultural influence can be easily seen in almost every aspect of Singapore.

If you thought that having a diverse background adds to confusion and helter-skelter in the Lion City, you would be grievously mistaken! It is quite remarkable to observe Singaporeans use their varied backgrounds as a unified strength that makes them stand out amidst the crowd.

Singapore Cuisine

Pamper your taste buds with Singapore’s exquisite cuisine! 

Singaporean cuisine is known for its large variety of delicious delicacies. Some of the choicest delights of Singapore’s cuisine include:

Drunken Prawns: Find them at most hawker centers in Singapore. This delicacy is creatively crafted by cooking prawns with Chinese rice wine.

BBQ Stingray: You’re not likely to find better BBQ Stingray elsewhere in the world. Singapore’s Sambal Stingray and BBQ Stingray sure come across as some of the most tasteful delights.

Beef Noodle Soup (with Gravy and Meatballs): Singaporeans have a way with meat, and you will definitely get to enjoy this talent of theirs if you try out this delicacy.

Ayam Buah Keluak: Singaporean cuisine has a Nyonya influence, which can be experienced with these tastefully prepared stewed chicken and black buah keluak nuts.

If you decide to visit this colorful, interesting and diverse city, there are many places at affordable prices. Singapore can be quite expensive in terms of accommodation if you don’t do your homework first! One of my friend has recently been there for a week and you can find good quality hostels/hotels for as cheap as 17$! Make sure to look at the customers review before deciding where to stay! 

This is a golden rule of mines and so far I never regretted it!
