Singapore is a small island nation in Southeast Asia that is known for being a financial powerhouse in the region and serves as the primary headquarters to many of the world’s multinational companies. However, the country isn’t all business and commerce. There’s a wide range of entertainment activities to try out. There’s something for everyone here. If you only have 24 hours to spend on the island, these are the best places to go to in Singapore.
Marina Bay Sands
The Singapore skyline has been changed permanently with the addition of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel and Casino. Opened in April 2010, the towering structure is home to 80 bars and restaurants as well as 170 luxury brand stores. The casino side offers 600 table games as well as 1,500 slots.
The hotel boasts of 963 rooms and suites. But its main attraction is the infinity pool at the Sky Park. This is a go-to area for those who want to experience swimming 57 levels above Singapore. The pool is also said to be the largest rooftop infinity pool in the world. Finally, the Sky Park also has an observation deck where you can view the city’s skyline.
Explore the Hawker Stalls
Singapore is a melting pot of cultures and cuisines. It’s best known for its savoury and spicy food like Chilli Crab, Clay Pot Rice, Hainanese Chicken, and Bak Kut Teh. These all-time favourites can be found in the best restaurants in the world but also in the City’s hawker stalls that are spread all over the island.
These stalls offer different cuisines that are representative of Singapore’s multi-racial society. The most popular hawker stalls are those in Chinatown, the Old Airport Road Food Centre, and the Tiong Bahru Market Hawker Centre. All of these stalls have their signature dish, but there will be something for everyone, from vegetarian dishes to Indian cuisine in any hawker stall.
If you’re travelling with your family, Sentosa is a must-stop, so your children could experience the various rides and attractions offered on the island. From a cable car from M. Faber to a day at the beach, Sentosa gives all travellers the chance to have the most fun in a short span of time.
The next time you’re planning to travel but have limited time to enjoy the attractions, you should consider Singapore and all its variable sceneries and attractions.
