Singapore may be one of the smallest countries in the world, but it is big when it comes to what it has to offer. It is dense in terms of culture and interesting things to do. Much like other cosmopolitan cities in the world, it is loaded with sensory experience. It is such that spending a day in this city-state can be loaded with a wonderful and memorable experience.
If you are planning to take on the city on your first day, you need to prioritise. If you are still crafting your itinerary, here are some of the activities you may want to include on your list.
Marvel at the architectural marvels
The city has a lot of architectural marvels that you can enjoy as a visual treat. If you are a fan of classic aesthetics, there are many colonial buildings at the heart of the city. The Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall and Shophouses are some of them. If you want contemporary beauties, the Esplanade and the Marina Bay Sands Hotel are the sights to behold.
Eat, eat, eat
The first food idea that may come to mind in Singapore is going to the hawkers. Their red chilli crab, laksa, and satay are something you should not miss. But if you want to go for a contemporary American dining experience, you can always have lunch at the Orchard area.
Take your time to unwind
Singapore can be enjoyed in your own fast pace. But you can also wind down and still appreciate its beauty. After a long day, you can take a slow stroll down the Helix Bridge. A quiet me-time in a café, while you read your favorite book and watch the locals go about their lives, is also a good idea.
These are some of the things that you may want to do on your first day. Once you get to your hotel, sleep with an excited mind and look forward to tomorrow’s new adventures.
