Singapore is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Southeast Asia. It is a small country, with an area of only 710 square kilometers and a population of a little over five million. It is considered a highly urbanized nation because most of its land is being used for industrialization developments.
Even though it is not as big as the other countries, Singapore has several landmarks that attract millions of tourists every year.
The island resort called Sentosa draws about five million visitors every year. It is where two five-star hotels, two golf courses, a beach, Fort Siloso, and the Resorts World Sentosa, home to the Universal Studios Singapore theme park, are all found.
The top tourist destinations in Sentosa include the Tiger Sky Tower, an observation tower that measures 110 meters from the ground, where visitors can enjoy a panoramic view of the island and nearby islands; the Merlion Statue, an iconic 37-meter sculpture of the Merlion; the MegaZip Adventure Park, which is among the steepest and longest zip lines in Asia, located on top of Mount Imbiah; the Underwater World and Dolphin Lagoon, an oceanarium that is home to several marine life including sharks, coral reefs, moray eels, stingrays, turtles, and other fishes; and Fort Siloso, a fort that was built in the 1880s by the British and is now an attraction where guests can view collections of photos, films, and documents about the soldiers in the past.
Singapore’s business center is known as Marina Bay. It is a popular destination for people that seek to experience the modern and fast-paced lifestyle of Singaporeans. It is an area filled with towering infrastructures and skyscrapers, and high-end residential buildings. It is where Singapore’s financial district is situated and is also where a lot of people go for their entertainment and shopping needs.
A Singapore trip with the whole family is not complete without going to the Singapore Zoo and Night Safari. Visitors get on trams and are toured through the jungle where they can see nocturnal animals and fierce predators in the flesh. There is also a guided trail walk for those who have the energy and are ready to explore the great outdoors!
