Top things to do in Singapore

Despite its relatively small size, the island of Singapore is jam-packed with attractions and activities. Whatever your preference, the choice is truly overwhelming, so here's a selection of the city's highlights to help you make the most of your visit.

Planning Your Visit

  • Eat like the locals

    Amongst Singapore's many highlights, food ranks very highly. However, the best meals are not necessarily found in the many restaurants, but out on the streets, where the local population eats. Visit any of the city's numerous hawker centers and take your pick from one of the many stalls offering cuisine from all over Asia. Not only will the food be delicious, but you won't believe how little it costs!

  • Proper etiquette

    Singapore boasts a large variety of cultures, many of which have specific and sometimes strict social customs. While a certain level of ignorance is tolerated in tourists, if you're invited to dinner or to someone's house, it's good to inform yourself about proper cultural etiquette in order to avoid offending your hosts.

  • Bring a sweater

    Though Singapore's weather is hot all year around, the air-conditioning is kept at very high levels indoors. It's a good idea to carry a sweater with you, as visitors unaccustomed to the air-conditioning can easily catch a cold from the frequent temperature jumps.

Holden our guide was brilliant and fun! He sharedhis historical and cultural knowledge with us as well as tips for cool bars, restaurants and visits to do in the next few days. Fascinating sights and insights, we really enjoyed ourselves. The local snacks and refreshments were yummy and oh-so refreshing which were so welcomed. Thanks Holden for sharing your passion and love for this incredible country. Expect to see Singapore from a very different angle, even if it’s not your first trip in the Lion City. Very shiock!

Great place to visit and fantastic guides. We booked the visit with the meal included as we where not sure what time the trip finished. The meal was great brilliant choice of food from a wide selection. We where left to do what we wanted to do after the train ride which was great.
