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

Walk around the Marina Bay Area (including Marina Bay Sands, Esplanade, the Fullerton Hotel and the Merlion).

Attractions

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
