Singapore is known for its abundance of natural opportunities in an urban setting. The first stop on your list should be the Singapore Botanical Gardens. This UNESCO-listed tropical oasis houses the National Orchid Garden, a manmade forest featuring 300 varieties of rare orchids. 

For more fragrant gardens, visit the Gardens by the Bay. Under the futuristic biodomes, you will find themed gardens featuring regional flora and fully-grown trees. Among the gardens, you will walk through installation art and sculptures. The most recognizable feature is the high-tech super trees which come to life in color during the evening Garden Rhapsody show.



Another must is to visit one of Singapore’s fantastic museums. The city has emerged as one of the world’s leading cultural destinations, housing the National Gallery of Singapore, the National Museum, the Peranakan Museum, and the Asian Civilizations Museum. Guests are welcome to lose themselves in historical topics from Asian art to World War II history.
