Universal Studios Singapore: has become one of Southeast Asia's most visited attractions as well as the region's first Universal Studios theme park. It takes at least a day or two to fully explore all seven Universal Studios Singapore zones. One star attraction, Battlestar Galatica, is the tallest two track rollercoaster on Earth.
Asian Civilisations Museum: ranks high on Singapore's list of must-see museums because of its impressive collection of artefacts from across the continent. A separate section of the museum is dedicated to Peranakan culture, but there are also extensive sections about Chinese, Malay, Thai, and even European history. This is one of the few Singapore museums which welcomes visitors seven days per week.
National Museum of Singapore: the oldest of Singapore's museums, has been recently renovated to include a modernist new wing in addition to its impressive Living Galleries and Asian cultural artefacts. Temporary exhibits and workshops are also frequently added to this museum's list of permanent exhibits.
Singapore Zoo: is not only one of Southeast Asia's largest zoos, but also one of the cleanest and safest zoos in this part of the world. Dry or wet moats are the dividing lines between Singapore Zoo visitors and the spacious landscaped enclosures where the animals live. The zoo also features a Kidz Zone where children can cool off, daily jungle breakfasts, and a small train which travels throughout this spacious north Singapore zoo.
Night Safari: may be part of the Singapore Zoo, but is situated on even more spacious grounds which are only opened after dark. Trained animal displays take place for 30 minutes three times per night at the Night Safari amphitheatre, while most of the main tour occurs aboard a guided tram. The second tram station is the starting point of the Leopard Trail walking path.
Jurong Bird Park: can be explored on foot or aboard the Panorail monorail. The tallest artificial waterfall in the world towers 30m above the more than 8,000 colourful tropical birds who call the Jurong Bird Park home. More than 600 bird species are represented at this open concept park.
Singapore Science Centre: boasts more than 850 exhibits which take more than a single day to fully explore. A kinetic garden boasting a giant amphitheatre, an omniplanetarium where visitors can learn more about the solar system, and a children's discovery zone are some of this science museum's more unique exhibits. There is a water park at the science centre entrance.
Underwater World: one of Sentosa Island's major attractions, first opened in 1991 and now boasts more than 2,500 animals from 250 species. This makes Underwater World one of Asia's biggest active aquariums. The 83m underwater tunnel to Underwater World's ocean and reef colonies is a definite highlight, as are the up and close encounters with fur seals and dolphins which occur four times each day.
Singapore Flyer: is a Ferris wheel which towers 150m above Marina Bay. Each glass capsule on this Ferris wheel, one of the world's highest, can hold up to 28 people during every 30-minute ride. Singapore Flyer even allows visitors to sip on cocktails as they enjoy the ride on this Ferris wheel, which first opened in 2008 and was inspired by the London Eye.
Fort Canning: remains one of central Singapore's most popular green spaces even though not much remains of the original British fort. A Javanese settlement once stood on this 60m hill during the 1300s. Today, Fort Canning features a spice garden, an arts centre, and an archaeological excavation site. The Gothic gates leading to Fort Canning Green, a popular outdoor concert venue, were first erected in 1846.
