Singapore has been described as a playground for the rich, and it is true that the small city-state has a certain brilliance of wealth. But Singapore offers more than commercial high-end malls, luxury hotels, and a good restaurant (but it is worth engaging in those a bit if you can). There is also a dynamic history and diverse ethnic neighborhoods to explore, as well as many attractions for families and beautiful public spaces who visit this city a bit futuristic worthwhile.
1. Marina Bay Sands
The opulent Resort Marina Bay Sands complex includes a luxury hotel high-end shopping center with a channel that crosses the ArtScience Museum and Marina Bay Sands Skypark Observation Deck a view to take in the whole city. The platform Skypark visualization and the infinity pool are in the ship (yes, boat) topped the hotel. Only are allowed the guests to the infinity pool, but everyone can visit the observation platform.
From the Skypark, you can see Duplicate Bridge innovative propeller, the port, the bay of the gardens (101 hectares of land converted seafront gardens) and the impressive skyline.
2. Gardens by the Bay
Once you’ve caught a glimpse of this green space beautifully designed (from the top of Marina Bay Sands, maybe) you will not be able to stay away. Strolling in the Garden Bay East, ideal to enjoy the living plant life and escape the bustle of the city for a while.
You will not want to miss supertrees Grove, where you will find a set of iconic structures, futuristic designed to perform the functions of environmental sustainability. Then head to the Cloud Forest Dome to see the highest indoor waterfall in the world and learn a little about biodiversity. Check the website of Ticket prices and visiting hours.
3. Botanic Gardens
Not to be confused with the gardens of the bay, botanical gardens are also worth a visit. Singapore received his first nomination as a UNESCO World Heritage for its botanical gardens, and rightly so. The city can sometimes feel like a concrete jungle, but clean and comfortable, but the botanical gardens preserve pieces of the heritage of Singapore wild.
Here a path leads to the foot of the gardens heritage trees, which are preserved as part of an effort to protect species of mature trees in the city. Be sure to visit the impressive National Orchid Garden and.
4. Singapore Zoo
Proclaimed best tropical forest world of the zoo, the Singapore Zoo is a place quite impressive. The facility is clean and inviting, and the animals seem well treated, with lots of lush vegetation and habitat space.
Orangutans are especially impressive, and visitors can watch the babies and adults as well swing high above their platforms and taste fruit. There is also a large family of chimpanzees, zebras, meerkats, a Komodo dragon, mole rats, white tigers, kangaroos, and many other creatures.
5. Orchard Road
One could be forgiven for coming to Singapore and do nothing but shopping, as this is a world class city for style and chic design. The Orchard Road area is a great place to start a shopping spree, because there are upscale shops at every turn. You expect nothing less from a district with 22 shopping centers and six stores. There are also four cinemas including an IMAX theater, and a KTV karaoke establishment.
