Singapore is a place with loads of glitz, golden sands and gardens. It’s also one of the most amazing and widely visited tourist destinations.
If you plan to visit Singapore, here I have rounded up the top 6 must-visit destinations for you to visit the city-state.
1.National Museum of Singapore
National Museum of Singapore is the largest museum of Singapore with two major galleries which includes the Singapore Living Galleries where on display are food, photography, fashion, and film, and the History Gallery, which takes you to the island’s history from the 14th century.
3. National Gallery in Singapore
It is located in two buildings, the former Supreme Court and the former City Hall, this National Gallery Singapore displays a collection of modern art by artists all over Southeast Asia. It also showcases the works of both budding and established artists from the region. You must also visit the newly opened galleries displaying Chinese Ink Art, and also visit the rooftop sculpture garden showing works by Vietnamese-born Danish artist Danh Vo.
4. ArtScience Museum
The ArtScience Museum is also a historic and iconic structure for which the Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort is known. Popular for its distinct shape, the museum is the fusion of the worlds of art and science together in the form of carefully curated exhibitions. This museum has been revamped recently where you can explore a high-tech collection of digital installations.
5. Singapore Botanic Gardens
The Botanic Gardens of Singapore is one of the oldest parks which was first opened in 1859 describing how this large complex came to existence in the center of the busy city-state. This park you can park over 10,000 species of plants. It’s also one of the premier orchid research and breeding centres across the world.
6. Haw Par Villa
Haw Pal Villa was developed by the brothers to teach their children about morality through Chinese mythology. Although some of the statues have started wearing out these days, still it is a well worth place to visit to see these bizarre and nightmarish life-sized dioramas.
7. Chinese and Japanese Gardens
You need to get out of the city and head west to visit the Chinese and Japanese Gardens. At the weekend, you will find people playing cricket in one of the park’s open spaces. Located in one part of the Chinese Gardens is the Live Turtle & Tortoise Museum, where you will find the world’s largest collection of turtles and tortoises.
These are some of the must-visit attractions in Singapore that you must not miss out on visiting on your next trip to this country.
