Visit Singapore

Where passion and possibilities meet

Singapore is much more than the sum of its numerous attractions. It is constantly evolving, reinventing, and reimagining itself, with people who are passionate about creating new possibilities. It is where foodies, explorers, collectors, action seekers, culture shapers, and socialisers meet―and new experiences are created every day.

Here’s a peek into what the Lion City has in store for you.

Taste something different, in new atmospheres, and in new ways.

Eating is said to be a classically Singaporean past-time, and it’s not difficult to see why. The Lion City is home to a constellation of Michelin-starred restaurants, ranging from Japanese fusion dishes at Beni to French cuisine at Odette.

Besides internationally acclaimed establishments, our city’s diverse culinary landscape is best exemplified in its local hawker culture. To sample true-blue hawker eats, drop by Chinatown Complex Food Centre, a sprawling hawker centre that houses over 260 food stalls. The world’s most affordable Michelin-starred meal—Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle—can be found here.

Discover intriguing places in the city, and beyond.

Often described as a City in a Garden, Singapore’s urban landscape is dotted with verdant parks, unspoilt sanctuaries and lush green spaces.

Uncover Singapore’s history in tranquil Fort Canning Park, marvel at the futuristic beauty of Gardens by the Bay or spend the afternoon strolling through the Singapore Botanic Gardens—Singapore’s first UNESCO World Heritage site.

Avid explorers who’d like to spend the entire day amidst the wonders of nature can take a bumboat to Pulau Ubin, an island that’s home to rich ecosystems, teeming wildlife and diverse landscapes.

Find your colour, cut and cult pieces.

Fashionistas and bargain hunters alike will find that Singapore is a treasure trove of shopping options.

Your first stop for a spot of retail therapy should be Orchard Road, Singapore’s premiere shopping belt. Whether you’re hunting for bargain buys at Far East Plaza or shopping for the latest threads from international labels like Giorgio Armani and Marc Jacobs, there’s bound to be an emporium to suit your tastes.

To peruse labours of love made in the Lion City, pay a visit to the bustling bohemian borough of Holland Village. We recommend browsing the racks of local fashion boutique Ong Shunmugam and exploring the craftsmanship on display at bookbinding atelier Bynd Artisan.

Come for the atmosphere, stay for the company.

Whether you’re a lover of live music, a rave fanatic who digs indie beats or just looking to soak in the party vibes, the Lion City is filled with opportunities for new revelries.

For starters, be sure to spend an evening at Clarke Quay, home to world-class dance clubs like Zouk, rock n’ roll venues like Crazy Elephant, and a plethora of themed bars to wet your whistle. Fans of retro culture should check out Level Up, a bar that pays homage to the video game arcades of the ‘90s.

Cocktail connoisseurs and drinking purists alike can choose from a multitude of award-winning drinking spots, ranging from the ultra-luxe, 1920s-inspired ATLAS to Manhattan, the latter dubbed the top establishment on the Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2018 list.

Chase the excitement, enjoy the thrills.

Get a dose of exhilarating Grand Prix Season Singapore action. Experience the intensity of an international rugby showdown. From high-flying thrills to up-close encounters with the creatures of the night, Singapore is filled with activities that’ll have you channelling your inner action hero.

To soar high on adrenaline, hop on a cable car and make your way to Sentosa. This island resort’s dizzying array of attractions include the world’s largest wind tunnel for indoor skydiving, movie-inspired rides at Universal Studios Singapore™ and Mega Adventure – Singapore, home to Southeast Asia’s steepest zip wire.

Adrenaline seekers who’d like to walk on the wild side should also pay a visit to Singapore’s award-winning Night Safari, the world’s first nocturnal zoo, home to over 2,500 animals from 130 species.

Experience rich tapestry of arts and culture.

While Singapore boasts a spectacular array of galleries, theatres and museums, it’s also a city where art can be found on street corners, sidewalks and shophouse walls.

Spend a day in the heart of the city, and find inspiration in Singapore’s Civic District. The area houses a multitude of world-class galleries and museums, including the National Museum of Singapore, the Singapore Art Museum and National Gallery Singapore. The latter is home to over 8000 pieces of art from Singapore’s National Collection, and has hosted exhibitions from internationally acclaimed artists like Yayoi Kusama and Martin Creed.

Alternatively, embark on a hunt for some of Singapore’s most iconic street art in the neighbourhoods of Bras Basah.Bugis, Tiong Bahru and Little India.
