Things to Do in Singapore

Perched at the bottom of Malaysia, almost spilling over into the Indonesian island of Sumatra, Singapore is a tiny country that bursts with cultural diversity and unexpected greenery. Thanks to a sublime food scene—comprised of hawker centers and modern restaurants—and a plethora of family-friendly attractions, Singapore is far more than a stopover on the way to Australia. For kids and adults alike, Sentosa Island—home to Universal Studios, Adventure Cove Waterpark, and the immersive 4D Mysterious Island—promise a fun-filled day out. In-the-know travelers opt for skip-the-line, multiday passes to maximize their time in Singapore. Other must-do experiences include a visit to Singapore Zoo, where you can breakfast with orangutans or take a night safari; a tour of Singapore Chinatown on a trishaw; and an iconic Singapore Sling cocktail at Raffles Hotel . At night, Singapore dazzles in its illumination, making an evening sightseeing tour an ideal way to see another side to the city: Marvel at a synchronized light-and-music show at Gardens By the Bay, absorb glittering city panoramas from Marina Bay Sands Sky Park, and take a river taxi down the Singapore River. And, with buses and boats departing for Malaysia and Indonesia daily, Singapore serves as a great gateway to the rest of Southeast Asia.

Maritime Experiential Museum

Singapore has long ranked among the world’s busiest ports — at any given moment there are around 1,000 vessels in the port with a ship arriving or leaving every two to three minutes. More than 130,000 ships call on Singapore each year. The Maritime Experiential Museum makes Singapore’s rich maritime history accessible to visitors through a series of interactive, multi-sensory exhibits.

The museum was originally built to house the Jewel of Muscat, and this stunning replica of a ninth-century Arab dhow gifted by the sultanate of Oman remains the crowning jewel of the museum’s collection. Other notable attractions include a collection of artifacts salvaged from the Bakau shipwreck off the coast of Belitung Island, a recreation of an Arab souk, a historic ship harbor with full-scale replicas of five historic vessels and the 150-seat, 360-degree Typhoon Theatre where visitors board a virtual ship bound for Arabia.
