What people say

"Gardens by the Bay is an incredible horticultural and architectural project. Symbolizing the city-state's commitment to urban greening. - Garden Rhapsody. Free light show at Supertree daily, 7.45pm and 8.45pm. - Visit one of the two AC Domes if you have time. Cloud Forest is a good one with the World's Largest Indoor Waterfall in it! Tourist ticket: SGD 50++ (Check the official website for accurate pricing, link below)"
"Gardens by the Bay is the main attraction in Singapore! Is a showpiece of horticulture and garden artistry that presents the plant kingdom in a whole new way, entertaining while educating visitors with plants seldom seen in this part of the world, ranging from species in cool, temperate climates to tropical forests and habitats."
"In the movie, the Supertree Grove is the lavish location of Colin (Chris Pang) and Araminta (Sonoya Mizuno)'s wedding after-party. Don't miss the free Garden Rhapsody light and sound show every night at 7:45/ 8:45 p.m. Would also recommend checking out the Cloud Forest and Flower Dome (ticketed). "

The vibrant city-state of Singapore is nestled at the tip of the Malay Peninsula. This tiny island nation is a harmonious blend where tradition meets modernity. Singapore has a captivating history and rich cultural heritage that is celebrated through its diverse blend of ethnicities, languages, and religions. Singapore was once a small, old fishing village on the edge of the jungle. It went through an incredible transformation and turned into the bustling metropolis and the global economic powerhouse that it is today. Despite its futuristic architecture, Singapore's history is preserved throughout the city such as its lush green spaces, colonial black and white bungalows, and Peranakan shophouses. Singapore has so much to offer. The world-class Changi airport, immaculate cleanliness, vibrant street food culture, efficient public transportation, low crime rates, and strict governance (most famously, the chewing gum ban) to name a handful. The only downfalls I can think of are the insane heat and humidity as Singapore sits right on the equator. So why local-ish? I first visited Singapore when I was 6-months old. My dad was born and raised in Singapore. Funnily enough, one of my mom's brothers has lived there for 30 years and we've had a handful of other family members (on both sides) live there over the years too. I've lost count of how many times I've visited but it's definitely one of my favorite places in the world and feels a bit like home. If you've never been to Asia before, Singapore is the perfect destination to start with. It's like a stepping stone to the rest of the world. Here are all my recommendations on what to do, see, eat, and drink in Singapore. Scroll to the bottom for an overview of everything you need to know before booking your trip to the Lion City. As always, I'm happy to help you plan a custom itinerary for your trip to Singapore! Just reach out to me directly (:
