See and Do in Singapore

Established as a British trading colony in 1819, modern-day Singapore is one of the world's most prosperous countries and boasts the world's busiest port.

Combining the towering skyscrapers of a growing modern city with a medley of ancient Chinese, Malay and Indian influences, and a tropical climate with tasty food, good shopping and vibrant nightlife, Singapore has plenty to offer expats from all walks of life.

Here are some of the best things to see and do in Singapore.


Recommended attractions in Singapore

Gardens by the Bay

This large, beautiful park area of Singapore stretches over 101 hectares, boasting an impressive skywalk over lush gardens, greenhouses which recreate chilly mountain climates, as well as several themed areas for visitors to explore.

The Singapore Flyer

Said to be one of the world’s largest observation wheels, the Singapore Flyover offers expats a one-of-a-kind panoramic view over the city. Sights to look out for include the Singapore River, Marina Bay, Raffles Place, Empress Place and the Padang.

Singapore River

Every new arrival should try to take a short cruise down the Singapore River, which cuts through the heart of the city. For many decades, it was the main artery of trade and commerce for the British – today, stately Victorian buildings stand side by side with towering glass skyscrapers along its banks.

Singapore Zoo

Kids, in particular, will enjoy a walkabout of Singapore Zoo, which is home to more than 300 animal species from across the world. There are also opportunities to get up and personal with the zoo's denizens at feeding time.
