Visiting Singapore–what to see, what to do, what to eat
In a bit more than a month, the Southeast Asia SharePoint conference is coming back to Singapore. Last year, I wrote about Singapore in general with some useful tips. This year, I’ll also provide some information on where to go and what to do.
Note: Also visit the official website by the Singapore Tourism Board.
Places to visit
Visit the Botanic Gardens and walk in a tropical rain forest
Orchard Road – shopping!
Singapore National Museum – learn more about Singapore and its history
Hippo Tours – not bad for visitors! You pay a fix price for 2 days, and you can then use their buses the whole time and hop on and off at many popular destinations in Singapore
Singapore Flyer : one of the biggest Ferris wheels in the world! However, as Marina Bay Sands is just nearby, you may also consider visiting that one with the observation platform
Marina Bay Sands – SkyPark: 67 storeys above the ground, great view over Singapore
Zoo & Night Safari – Both are very good, located directly within the rain forest. The Night Safari shows you nocturnal animals and starts at 7pm
Jurong Bird Park – in case you want to see birds
Tree Top Walk – suspension bridge 25m above the ground
Going Out, Eating
Chilli/Butter/Black Pepper Crab: you should have crab at least once, e.g. at http://www.seafoodparadise.com.sg/outlets.html
Should you have any additional questions or feedback, or if you want to meet up the weekend before the conference, please feel free to contact me!
