Singapore is a bustling home for a plethora of cultures and people. There is no shortage of food to eat, places to see, and things to do – so to help you pick out where and how you can spend your time here, we’ve curated a list of 3 places we think are worth a visit when you’re here – especially if you’re looking for souvenirs to bring home for yourself or your loved ones.
You need to look no further than Singapore’s southern coast to find Sentosa, a sunny island fringed by sandy beaches. Fun fact: 85% of Sentosa is reclaimed land!
For a family day out, check out Universal Studios, SEA Aquarium, Adventure Cove Waterpark, Madame Tussauds, or Nestopia. If you’re a sports and adventure buff, pay HydroDash, Skyline Luge, or Mega Adventure Park a visit. Finally, for a more relaxing trip, try out a cable car ride, make perfume at Scentopia, or spend the day at a beach club.
National Gallery Singapore
Did you know that the National Gallery boasts the world's largest public display of modern Southeast Asian art? Located within Singapore’s former Supreme Court and City Hall buildings it’s also Singapore’s largest museum.
Although it’s usually overshadowed by Singapore’s other attractions, the National Gallery is an incredibly well-rounded gem in the heart of Singapore’s Civic District. With exhibitions, workshops, performances, discussions, and more, there is something for everyone – be it art lovers, families, or those who wish to marvel at its architectural design.
A tip from us: check out The Gallery Store by ABRY! Featuring a curated collection of local products, you’ll be able to find items rich in sentimental, historical, and cultural value. One such item is a traditional hand-drawn silk Batik Tulis shawl. Unique and beautiful, an art piece like this is truly one-of-a-kind.
Everybody knows and loves Singapore’s shopper’s paradise: Orchard Road.
