Things to do on Holidays in Singapore

Many Singaporeans complain that besides shopping, movies and dinning, there is nothing much to do in the city. Do not listen to them as the city has a lot to offer to the visitors. Although there are a number of places which the tourists can hit, here in this article I will only talk about the major attractions.

If you are going to Singapore for the first time, you are likely to come across the famed retail market on Orchard Road. Once you are done with shopping, it is now time to explore the real charm of the city. I am going to guide you to the top 10 places where people normally do not plan to go. Here we go then.

    Enjoy the last green lung

    In Singapore, shops do not open until 11 am. So, tourists sometimes find it extremely hard to kill time. That is how you do it. Plan a journey to one of the most beautiful and attractive gardens in the world; the Singapore Botanic gardens. It will not be wrong to say that it is one of the last remaining green lungs in the city. There is also food court near Tanglin Gate for those who want to enjoy the local traditional breakfast. So, have breakfast with a cup of coffee and enjoy your stay in the city.

    Absorb artwork

    Although it is strange to visit a hotel to see artwork, in Singapore that is exactly what you have to do. Ritz Carlton is an exceptional hotel. The three ton Frank Stella installation at the entrance of the hotel is extra ordinary. Similarly, the pair of Dale Chihuly crystal glass sculptures is considered one of the finest pieces of arts in Asia.

    Cultural Heritage

    While other tourists will be making their way to Perankan Museum and the Asian Civilisations Museum, you should consider exploring the China Town Heritage Centre; a recreation of sets of bedrooms, street scenes and kitchens from the 19th century.

    Plastic Surgery

    Many of us believe that Bangkok and Hong Kong are the best places in Asia for plastic Surgery. Ignore them as in my view Singapore surgeons are the best in the subcontinent.
