Night Safari – World’s First Nocturnal Wildlife Park
This internationally acclaimed leisure attraction embodies innovation and creativity in products and services, and service quality, thus attracting approximately 1.3 million visitors annually. Close to 900 animals from approximately 100 species (of which almost 41 per cent are threatened) inhabit the 35-hectare park.
National Orchid Garden
The National Orchid Garden is located on the highest hill in the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Three hectares of carefully landscaped slopes provide a setting for over 1,000 species and 2,000 hybrids, with about 600 species and hybrids on display.
Asian Civilisations Museum
With its mix of races and cultures, Singapore has rightfully earned a reputation for being the cultural melting pot of Asia. To showcase this diverse heritage, the Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM) takes you on a grand exploration of the people from around the region that have settled on our shores over the past two centuries. The ACM is the only museum in the region devoted to exploring the artistic heritage of Asia, especially the ancestral cultures of Singaporeans.
Stroll Along Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade
2 Bayfront Avenue, Singapore 018972
Take in the sights, admire Singapore’s impressive architecture, toast Marina Bay and enjoy prime people-watching at the Waterfront Promenade, a 2.1 mile stretch that loops around Marina Bay. Events and pop-ups are regularly hosted along the Promenade; the iconic Merlion (which has the head of a lion and the body of a fish) is an eternal attraction, spouting water from its mighty mouth while it guards the city.
Highlights at the Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade
Discover the magic of Spectra, a free-to-public outdoor light and water show displayed over the water at the Event Plaza along the promenade. As the story unfolds before your eyes, you’ll be immersed in a beautiful symphony of music, water and light that’s powered by advanced lasers, fountain jets and visual projectors. The 15-minute show reflects Singapore’s journey as a multicultural society into the cosmopolitan city she is today, with each of the 4 acts seamlessly flowing into the next. In Acts I and II, visual imagery metaphorically represents Singapore society and its complex history and cultural background. Acts III and IV have a forward-looking theme, with futuristic images inspiring us to strive for a better Singapore.

Singapore is the springboard to exotic sites in Southeast Asia. The best way to see them all? From the comfort of a cruise liner for maximum fun with minimum hassle.
Hop on a cruise-liner at any of Singapore’s cruise centres and sail forth to your next adventure. Travel to the region’s best destinations by sea and get a taste of the diverse experiences Southeast Asia has to offer—there’s something for everyone.
For an easy city vacation, make a trip to neighbouring Malaysia’s capital, Kuala Lumpur, for a spot of shopping or dining. Families can spend a fun-filled day at Sunway Lagoon, a water amusement park, where both the young and young-at-heart can delight in the six themed zones. Just slather on some sunscreen, slide on those sunglasses and revel in the sun and the fun.
For those a little more restless, consider heading to Bangkok (Thailand). You’ll be rewarded with a trip that comes packed with a pinch of chaos and edge (not to mention, fantastic shopping options in the city’s many megamalls).
Alternatively, head to Vietnam to chase that adrenaline rush. Bring your adventurous pals on a boat tour of the Mekong Delta to see the Vietnamese countryside as well as the iconic floating market, or go on a speed boat tour along the Saigon River to the historic Cu Chi Tunnels.
When you feel like slowing down your pace a little, there are plenty of beautiful destinations nearby. Take Penang (Malaysia), for instance—the city brims with old-world charm, and you can spend your time there leisurely discovering local cuisine or marvelling at the city’s historical architecture.
For a classic island escapade, head to Krabi (Thailand) to experience idyllic isles, lush jungle and pristine beaches. Imagine checking into an ocean-view resort and gazing upon Krabi’s clear waters and awe-inspiring limestone karsts.
