Delve deeper and you will find a plethora of things to do. Here are a few ideas.

First off all there is the delightful Gardens by the Bay. Singapore is abundant with flora and the Gardens offer a chance to see some greenery in the city state.  The whole place is design in a futuristic manner that promotes the growing o the local biodiversity. That is not the only gardens though. There is also the Botanic Gardens that contain some of the more wilder parts of the city states flora. It’s not as manicured as the Gardens by the Bay but it does feature the amazing National Orchid Garden. This beautiful flower loves the Singapore climate. You can also wander the bonsai and eco-gardens as well.

Staying with the natural world a visit to the Singapore Zoo is also a must. It claims to be the world best zoo based around the animals and plants you would find in a rainforest. It is home and sanctuary to a wonderful Orangutans who are a particularly playful bunch enjoying the tree laden preserve and the delicious bananas that grow there. There are also chimpanzees and zebras and meerkats but the most spectacular sight is the majestic white tigers that roam and play.

On the cultural and amusements side there is the specular Asian Civilisations Museum that lives in the colonial splendour of The Empress Place Building named after Queen Victoria and in her honour. In fact if you like a bit of built heritage then the colonial style is all around you with the Raffles Hotel and Fort Canning Park are well worth a visit too. The museum is all about the influence of the Asian culture on the world and it is a testament to what it has brought to us.
