With so much to see and do in this world-class city, you might think that a weekend in Singapore won’t be close to long-enough. But, with a bit of planning you can get a taste of the sights, flavours and scenes that define this city on the rise. Weekends in Singapore are a time for busy locals to relax and kick back and many of the most popular activities involve visits to the local man-made beach or any of the high-end malls. But there is plenty to keep you busy if you prefer to go-go-go! Of course, either way, you can dance the night away in Singapore’s many clubs.
You could easily spend an entire weekend exploring the many attractions in the Marina Bay areas, one of Singapore’s most famous destinations – get a Hotels.com discount and promo code to book your stay! The Marina Bay area is home to many of the city’s top attractions, including the expansive Marina Bay Sands Casino, the lotus-flower shaped ArtScience Museum, and Gardens by the Bay Park, a futuristic “forest” of steel trees which are lit up at night. Perhaps the most stunning feature of the Marina Bay Sands is the award-winning light show that starts every night at 20:00. The Singapore Flyer, one of the largest observation wheels in the world, is the perfect vantage point to the show.
After a day spent taking in the sights and lights of Marina Bay, make a quick stop at your hotel to put on your dancing shoes and then make your way west to the Clarke Quay. Nestled in a bend in the Singapore Rive, this is without a doubt the center of Singapore’s booming nightlife. Enjoy a meal at one of the many restaurants and then spend the night exploring bars and nightclubs that pack the bank of the Singapore River. From cozy pub to high-end concept bar there is something sure to appeal to everyone’s tastes!
After a night at the Quay, a day at the beach is definitely in order! Sentosa is a family-friendly, man-made island with a number of white sand beaches to choose from. There are many luxury hotels on the Island to make this a great place enjoy the entire weekend. For a relatively tranquil beach day, visit the Tanjong Beach and relax beside shallow warm waters. When you are ready to explore the Island, there are plenty of things to see and do. Rollercoaster junkies will find plenty of excitement at the Universal Studios theme park, while others might prefer to try their hands at slots at the Resort World Sentosa Casino. Don’t miss the Butterfly & Insect Kingdom, home to butterflies, birds and reptiles, or the Crane Dance light show every night. You could easily spend your entire weekend on the Island – get your Expedia Singapore voucher code to find the best deals.
If a day on the Island isn’t your thing, consider spending some time strolling around Little India, home to Singapore’s sizeable Indian community. This colorfully vibrant area is known for its delicious fare, its 24-hour shopping and its beautiful Hindu and Buddhist temples. The nightlife in Little India centers around curries and beer in many smaller bars and food courts – perfect for a laid-back Sunday evening.
There is so much to see and do in this glittering city – hopefully your weekend will inspire you to come back for more!
