Day In Singapore

Jeff Xu

Marina Bay Sands (Pool)

Free access for hotel guests. Infinity pool overlooking Clarke Quay, hot tub facing Singapore harbor. Best pool experience ever!!

food stall

Cheap, good food in an otherwise expensive city. Food court on steroids. Great variety of various ethnic asian cuisines from Singaporean, Malaysian, Indian, Chinese to Vietnamese. Nice place to sit down for an affordable lunch in the middle of the city

The Merlion (Sentosa)

Sentosa is where Singaporeans go for weekend getaways. Take the Sentosa Express monorail to the island and explore the various attractions from the Merlion, to Dolphin lagoon to the Megazip adventure park. Skip the western attractions like Universal Studios, and the casino was disappointing

Fort Siloso

Get some history in the early afternoon with Fort Siloso on Sentosa island. Fort Siloso was where Singaporean/British army made the last stand against Japanese invaders during WWII. Though eventually lost, this fort provides a glimpse into the final battle and the daily life of Singaporeans under Japanese rule

Long Bar

Singapore gets quite humid and hot in the afternoon, so nothing is better than visiting the legendary Raffles hotel and trying the original Singapore Sling at the Long Bar (as made famous by Hemmingway), opt for the more expensive Hendricks Gin, it does make a difference.

Marina Bay Sands Casino

Skip the casino and the gambling, but go for the number of top rated restaurants on the second floor of the casino. Try the chili crab, a local favorite, but be prepared to shell out some big bucks. Another option is Clarke Quay, essentially a bay outside the hotel that is surrounded by restaurants where patrons can sit and watch the boats go by

Night Safari

Very unique, only way to see animals that'll come out at night. Your safari will take you through 7 distinct regions of the world. There is also a walking tour and night shows available. Truly an unforgettable experience

I would stay at: Marina Bay Sands Hotel

5 star accommodations, only way to stay in Singapore
