What is Singapore Famous For?

Top Attractions in Lion City

Singapore is globally renowned as a tourist hub for the masses and there are a number of significant highlights that the island is associated with. Here’s a rundown of some of these attractions.

 The Gardens by the Bay

Considered the world’s first futuristic garden, Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay bagged many design awards for its iconic highlights and towering Supertrees. Divided into exhibition spaces, the Flower Dome, Cloud Forest and a collection of smaller gardens connected by aerial bridges, The Gardens by the Bay is a unique recreational hub for the masses. The Gardens by the Bay is breathtaking by day and in the veil of night, and free entry to the park is available from 5 am to 2 am.

Changi Airport

Whether you are spending a few hours in Singapore on a layover or visiting the country for the first time, there’s no denying that Changi Airport is the globe’s best airport. In addition to encompassing state-of-the-art facilities and shops, the airport’s entertainment zone also includes a butterfly park and wildlife enclosures. Home to hundreds of restaurants including those that serve Singaporean street food, the cinemas and nap areas located around the airport make Changi a treat to spend time in.

Sentosa Island

As Singapore’s original “Holiday Island”, this one-stop leisure center with three manmade beaches and a world-class aquarium remains a big hit with families visiting the country.

 Hawker Centres

Cheap eats and food streets are part of every Asian nation but hawker centers are synonymous with Lion City. Whether you are based at the PARKROYAL COLLECTION Pickering, Singapore or any one of the other hotels in Chinatown, Singapore, or elsewhere on the island, a hawker center is never too far.
