Probably the area that has seen the greatest transformation over the last 50 years, Marina Bay is now highly regarded as the jewel in Singapore's crown. Formerly a somewhat quiet stretch sat at the entrance of the Singapore River, the area has evolved into a bustling part of town, with bright lights and attractions commanding your attention with every step you take. Featuring some of Singapore's best and most iconic hotels, Marina Bay also has restaurants and shops aplenty for everyone to enjoy.
The simply epic Marina Bay Sands should be your first port of call here though, incorporating a skypark, casino and an award-winning lights show (amongst many other things), this is the focal point of the bay which will keep you coming back for years to come.
Widely known for it's plentiful dining options and thrilling nightlife, Clarke Quay's waterfront location often makes it a popular choice with visitors for an evening out. However, head down early and you'll find an array of options to help you enjoy your afternoon before a night out. Take in a boat tour of Singapore River for a completely new perspective of the area, or keep your feet on the ground and take in a great view of the business district and Marina Bay from nearby Boast Quay.
Alternatively a trip to the verdant greenery of Fort Canning Park, or the Hong San See Temple will prove to be enjoyable excursions if you'd rather take in some culture during your visit to the area.
Gardens by the Bay
One of Singapore's most recognisable attractions, Gardens of the Bay is an expansive, futuristic park which is bursting with colour, character and creativity. The towering 'Supertree' structures are connected by winding skywalk platforms over gardens featuring a varied collection of plants and trees waiting to be discovered.
Whether you take in the vantage point of the 'Supertree' walkways, or explore the gardens at ground level, you may find yourself wandering around for hours on end without losing interest here. Kids will enjoy this fantasy-esque location, as well as the mystery of The Greenhouses, which house the exciting Cloud Forest and Flower Dome
A must-see, unique attraction in Singapore is undoubtedly the Night Safari. Focusing equally on conservation (including the rescue and research of animals) and entertainment, the Night Safari has developed a strong reputation for being one of the most family-friendly and responsible attractions across the whole of Asia.
Encounter animals in the nocturnal animal kingdom in over 50 exhibits to be visited by walking trails and trams. Behold the wonder of exotic and endangered species including the greater one-horned rhino, gir lion and the striped hyena.

Take in the sights, sounds and smells that tempt visitors in from afar towards the picturesque mosques and temples, let alone the all-too-tempting selection of restaurants that you'll find here.
