Things to do in Singapore

Things to do in the Marina Bay Area

Marina Bay represents all things modern and super-stylish, from trendy dining destinations to exciting leisure spots.

Stop by the Gardens by the Bay, offering waterfront views over 101 hectares of green spaces. Visit the Supertree Grove, the Cloud Forest and the Flower Dome. For more information on the gardens click here.

For food and drink, enjoy sky-high views with a glass of artisanal beer at the world’s highest microbrewery, Level 33 at Marina Bay Financial Centre.
Head on to Sydney’s Tetsuya Wakuda, Waku Ghin at Marina Bay Sands, serving top-notch meals in ‘omakase’ (a chef-selected menu) style.

Discover the magic of Spectra, a free-to-public outdoor light and water show displayed over the water at the Event Plaza, at the Marina Bay Sands Shopping Mall, along the promenade. As the story unfolds before your eyes, you’ll be immersed in a beautiful symphony of music, water and light that’s powered by advanced lasers, fountain jets and visual projectors.

Reasons to Visit Singapore

The Food

Embark on a culinary adventure as you hop from hawker centres to fine dining restaurants. To really get your taste buds in a tangle, seek out ‘four hands’ dinners—it is a new trend in the city that sees two chefs collaborate on a meal, often to wild results.

The Traditions

The cultural tapestry of Singapore, like the culinary scene, is much like a patchwork quilt. The many ethnicities and religions that call the city home live in harmony—you’ll easily spot Hindu temples, Buddhist temples and synagogues side-by-side. It’s also not uncommon to find devotees from one place of worship paying their respects at another.

The Shopping

Visit shopping belts such as Orchard Road and Haji Lane to find everything from high street threads to luxury accessories to hand-crafted homeware. Then look out for flea markets such as Boutiques and Public Garden for a retail experience quite unlike those found within our gleaming malls.
