  • Wondering what to do in Singapore when the sun goes down?

Singapore Flyer
  • Singapore Flyer
  • Hopping on Asia’s largest observation wheel is a great way to get your bearings in the Lion City. From 540 feet above the ground, you won’t miss the Marina Bay Sands distinctive silhouette or the spiky domes of Esplanade – Theatres On The Bay. However, you may need to squint a little to spot the riverside statue of the Merlion, Singapore’s half-fish, half-lion mascot, standing tall by The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, a luxury hotel that now occupies the former general post office building. A complete rotation on the Singapore Flyer takes about 30 minutes, and each air-conditioned capsule can accommodate up to 28 guests.

Singapore Zoo
  • Singapore Zoo
  • It’s easy to see why Singapore Zoo draws nearly 2 million visitors a year. As far as zoos go, it’s a beautiful one where animals enjoy plenty of space in open, landscaped enclosures modelled after their habitats in the wild. Walk through Fragile Forest, where you might literally cross paths with mousedeer and lemur, and observe jungle cats through glass windows in Wild Africa. There are live animal shows and feeding sessions too. Next door, the Night Safari gives you a completely different zoo experience. You can take a guided tram ride and keep your eyes peeled for nocturnal animals stirring about.
