If you wish to visit Singapore, or even visited briefly, you’ll have different ideas on the country’s must-see sights and attractions. There are so many things that will keep you engaged all day as per your budget and personal interests.
Start with a Traditional Coffee
But there is a great way to start your day with a traditional coffee and breakfast at a ‘kopi tiam’ (coffee shop). You should say ‘kopi’ and what you would like in it to order your coffee. You should try a traditional Singaporean breakfast of ‘kaya’ toast, which is coconut jam, served with sugar and eggs on toast. You can try your toast with a soft boiled egg.
Visit Singapore Botanic Gardens
Opened in 1859, the botanic gardens are one of Singapore’s oldest parks and native to over 10,000 species of plants. Spread over 80 hectares (200 acres) of land, you should pay attention to where you’re entering and exiting the park. You can also explore the National Orchid Garden, which is one of the premier orchid research centers in the world, showcasing nearly 1,000 species of indigenous flowers as well as 2,000 hybrids.
Have Lunch at Chinatown Complex
For lunch, visit Chinatown Complex and try out Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle which is the world’s cheapest Michelin-starred meal. You’d not have to wait more than half an hour. You can also visit the nearby Art Science Museum of Singapore taking a quick MRT ride.
Visit Esplanade Theatre and Makansutra Gluttons Bay
Starting from the museum, take a relaxed stroll across the Helix Bridge towards the durian-inspired Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay. Way to the theatre you’ll come across a large, outdoor seating area Makansutra Gluttons Bay, which is one of the best places on the island for eating Singapore’s national dish of chili crab, without paying exorbitant rates for it.
So what else can you expect to visit in a day in Singapore? This is the best schedule to keep your day engaged and fun-filled.
