Singapore is, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most unique countries in all of East Asia. When you consider the fact that it has such a rich history, and yet, the country is so westernized to the point that nearly everyone speaks English fluently, there really isn’t a place quite like it. Here are some of the best places to visit for free when you’re in Singapore.
Gardens by the Bay
You can marvel at the Gardens by the Bay and its Supertrees which leave you mesmerized by their beauty and the things they are capable of doing such as absorbing solar energy to light themselves at night and harvesting rainwater for surrounding flora and fauna.
Singapore Botanic Gardens
Spread over 74 hectares, the Singapore Botanic Gardens is an excellent place to learn about flora and fauna, simply laze around, and much more. This is the only botanic garden in the world that is open from 05:00 a.m. till midnight all through the year.
You can view the Singapore skyline from Merlion Park, the most iconic sculpture of Singapore. It is the best spot to enjoy great views of the bay and some of Singapore’s top landmarks like Marina Bay Sands and Esplanade.
If you’re looking for a place to enjoy free outdoor concerts, you should head to the Esplanade in the harbor area. The Theaters on the Bay in Esplanade showcase local artists and bands every weekend.
You can take a stroll in the Marina Bay area along the riverfront and experience the spectacular views of Singapore’s skyline, particularly on weekends when the skyline is bathed in colorful dancing lights for 13 minutes.
Little India and China Town
The explorer in you will be mesmerized by Little India and Chinatown showcasing a slice of India with a Singaporean touch. Local handicrafts, night markets, Chinatown Heritage Center, Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, Sri Mariamman Temple, and Jamae Mosque are some of the major attractions.
