7 wonders of Singapore: what to see and do in the city of the future

The most innovative and technological, the cleanest and safest and also one of the most expensive cities in the world - everything revolves around the small city-state of Singapore. It can surprise not only with unusual architectural solutions, such as a bridge in the form of a DNA chain, a museum in the form of a lotus or a hotel terrace in the form of a boat, but also with the atmosphere of a real metropolis, although it only takes the 171st place of 193 in the world rankings and 46th place out of 48 Asian countries per area. The Travellizy team informs you in the new article about the most important sights of Singapore, which you should see with your own eyes.

1. Gardens by the Bay

The artificial gardens on the bay with artificial super trees come first. Every day at 7.45pm and 8.45pm there is a light and sound show called Garden Rhapsody. At this time, the gardens are immersed in a special atmosphere and the audience feels like the heroes from the Avatar film, as the super trees are between 25 and 50 m high.

The show is absolutely free and open to everyone, but you need special tickets for a walk through the individual gardens or the bridge between the super trees.

2. Marina Bay Sands Hotel

The Marina Bay Sands Hotel is another wonder of Singapore. Everyone who wants to travel to this city wants to swim in the hotel's huge swimming pool with panoramic views. Unfortunately, only hotel guests have access, and the room rate starts at € 370 per night.

From the special Sky Park observation deck, everyone can enjoy a spectacular view for 23 SGD (15 €) or have a glass of wine with a view of the city for the same money in the CÉ LA VI bar on the 57th floor.

3. Singapore Zoo

It is one of the world's best zoos with tropical forests where you can not only watch animals being fed, but also feed them yourself by purchasing a special food. The zoo is open to visitors daily from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. An adult ticket costs 37 SGD (24 €), for children (3-12 years) 25 SGD (16 €), there is a 10% discount when booking online.

Other entertainment options such as night and river safaris and Jurong Bird Park are also popular. If you want to visit at least one of them in addition to the Singapore Zoo, it is advisable to buy a combo ticket immediately. For example, entry to all four parks is SGD 80 (€ 52) for an adult and SGD 60 (€ 39) for a child, and savings on tickets are up to -70%!

4. Singapore Flyer Ferris Wheel

Panoramic 360 ° views from a height of 165 meters in a glass capsule - this is what awaits everyone who decides to take a ride on the famous Singapore Flyer. A 30-minute ride costs SGD 33 (€ 22) for an adult and SGD 21 (€ 14) for a child (3-12 years old).

Singapore Flyer is open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. If you want to plan a vacation, you can pre-order dinner in a capsule or buy a ticket with a glass of champagne.

5. Statue of Merlion

Almost every capital city has its own symbol, and Singapore was no exception as it had a statue of Merlion, the figure of a mythical creature with the body of a fish and the head of a lion.

There are five statues of Merlion in total, and the most impressive is on Sentosa Island, which has a museum, cinema, gift shop, and viewing platforms.

6. Sentosa Island

Sentosa is considered a Singaporean island for active sports and entertainment. While Singapore isn't exactly known for beach vacations, you can sunbathe on the beach, kayak, dive in an aquarium with dolphins, or descend a steep hill in an aqua park.

And Sentosa has one of the largest amusement parks in the world, Universal Studios, which fans of attractions and extreme sports would definitely enjoy. The cost of a day pass for adults is SGD 79 (€ 52) and SGD 59 (€ 38) for children aged 4 to 12. Adventure and exciting emotions are guaranteed.

7. Fountain of Wealth

Another Singapore landmark is the Fountain of Wealth in Suntec City, one of the city's largest shopping malls. Locals say that if you dip your hand in the well and walk around it three times, it will bring you luck and attract prosperity.

Given that the fountain was built according to all the rules of Feng Shui and is considered a symbol of wealth, it is worth trying. Who knows, maybe this is one of the secrets of Singapore's prosperity?
