Gardens By the Bay is a must see in Singapore. This award-winning garden and horticulture attraction presents the world of plants in a series of experiences. You may want to plan a two-day visit to the garden as there is a lot to see both by day and night. Walking the gardens are free; however, some of the major attractions will require a ticket purchase. Tickets are available online for advance purchase. We bought tickets on-site for Cloud Forest, a tropical plant experience that offers a walk above the clouds. Wait time for tickets was about 15 minutes.
Make at stop at the Manhattan Bar, which was recently named the #3 best bar in the world. While the bar is located outside of the downtown area, it is worth the cab fare. The bar crafts their own whiskey in an on-site rickhouse (storage space for ageing barrels) and serves up gourmet snacks. There is a dress code, so don’t wear tank tops and flip-flops.
Eat at the mall food courts or any street vendor. Singapore has street food with Michelin stars, and there are chefs in the middle of the mall. Any dining experience in Singapore will be unforgettable.
*We stayed at the JW Marriott Hotel Singapore which I would highly recommend. Great location, within walking distance of the major downtown attractions, and has an infinity pool overlooking the city.
*Travel Tip: Singapore is the most expensive city in the world. There are ways to save depending on where you eat and stay.
