Two Days in Singapore

with No Comments

Here is a short guide to a two-day adventure in Singapore!

Where to Stay:

$$$: Marina Bay Sands,The Fullerton Hotel, Raffles

For MBS, it’s quite busy in terms of tourist circulation so if you’re looking for a more quiet place, definitely pick The Fullerton Hotel. Although MBS does have that rooftop infinity pool…which is only accessible to hotel guests.

$: Airbnb! There are lots of nice ones in Singapore. We stayed in one near the Great World City which was super convenient with all the bus stops right outside.

Day 1

  • Marina Bay
    • MBS (Marina Bay Sands): The famous Marina Bay Sands hotel towers at the edge of the bay, and if you head up to its SkyPark (free for hotel guests), you will be able to overlook the entirety of Singapore. Best time to go up to SkyPark is near sunset so you get all the views, from sun up to sun down.
      • Website: 
    • ArtScience Museum: Another iconic architectural piece in Singapore and located right next to MBS. Check out its many unique exhibition and TeamLab World’s FUTURE WORLD exhibit!
    • The Shoppes: Connected to MBS is The Shoppes, a large shopping complex. Here you can find an inverted fountain that pours down water from up ahead when it’s completely filled and a giant food court with something for everyone. Also Check out the Helix Bridge out front where the A-T G-C patterns can be seen on the floor.
      • Website: 
  • Gardens by the Bay
    • A large nature park right behind MBS, Gardens by the Bay offers a look into a future ‘city in a garden.’ Spots to check out are the Supertree Grove, Cloud Forest, and Flower Dome.
      • Website: 
  • Night Safari
    • Ready to see cute deer and screaming otters? Come to the night safari where even college age and working age kids will get excited! Go on the tram tour or walk around on your own. Bring your glasses or a friend who is really good at I SPY and you’ll have tons of fun here!!

Day 2

  • Merlion
    • The Merlion is the symbol of Singapore, combining ‘mer’ which means ‘sea,’ from Singapore’s beginnings as  a fishing village, and ‘lion’ from Singapore’s name origin of ‘Lion City.’ The statue can be found in front of The Fullerton Hotel and the Merlion Park.
  • Maxwell Road Hawker Food Centre, Outram
    • One of the many hawker centres around Singapore, Maxwell Centre is popular with both tourists and locals alike. I recommend TianTian for simple and delicious chicken rice (this comes from a person who normally avoids chicken at all costs). Around this area in Outram are lots streets with traditional architecture (tong lau or ke lau in Cantonese…) and lots of cafes and restaurants to check out as well!
      • Chinatown: For souvenir shopping, head to Chinatown! Check out Koi Thé, a chain bubble tea place originating from Taiwan, which can be found inside Chinatown Point, a newer shopping mall located in Chinatown.
  • Clarke Quay
    • A riverside quay full of restaurants, nightclubs, and colorful buildings.

Other places:

  • Little IndiaA cultural enclave in Singapore like Chinatown! Lots of food places here as well. 
  • Sentosa: Famous and popular island resort and home to Universal Studios Singapore. 
  • Orchard Road: All your shopping needs can be fulfilled here at Orchard Road. 
  • Vivocity: Large shopping center across from Sentosa.
