Singapore, this tropical island located at the southernmost tip of peninsula Malaysia is a vibrant modern city-state. The city brings its best in food, nature, heritage, and culture to punch well above its weight on the global tourist map. Here are top 10 things to do while in Singapore.

1. Visit the Gardens by the Bay

The Cloud Forest is a 35m tropical highland forest structure at the world’s equator. Cool air and gentle mist shroud the world’s largest indoor waterfall pouring from its side. A rich array of flora climbing up the cliff walls bring to mind the mythic hanging gardens of Babylon.

The tour takes about 2 hours to complete.

The Flower Dome has 9 zones of plants in far-flung temperate and tropical climates; from California lilac flowers to olive groves. Drink in the planet’s rich biodiversity and marvel at nature’s intricate work.

Exploring the Flower Dome takes 1 hour.

2. Night-time stroll across the Supertree Grove

Huge giant tree-like structures ringed with lightweight plants overlook the Marina Bay.

The connecting skyway lets you stroll through the Supertrees 50m in the air to relax in the cool evening breeze. At night, the pink-and-blue neon lights around the Supertrees create an ethereal ambience.

Exploring the grove takes 1 hour.

3. Visit the National Orchid Garden

Pass through archways of golden shower orchids and admire the stately Vanda Miss Joaquim. Inhale the chocolate-and-vanilla orchid fragrance and spot large flowering orchids at other mini exhibits.

The journey takes approximately 2 hours.

6. Visit the Singapore Zoo
