Indulge in the Uniquely Singapore experience

Singapore, a dynamic city rich in contrast and colour where you will find a harmonious blend of culture, cuisine, arts and architecture. A main island with 63 surrounding islets, Singapore is located in the heart of fascinating Southeast Asia. The main reason why I should be given this opportunity to experience the rich blend in culture, cuisine, arts and architecture of Singapore is Singapore is a truly a city like no other, a world of possibilities. No doubt that unique is the best word that captures Singapore. With its friendly and welcoming people, I am sure that my stay at Singapore will definitely be a memorable one as I enjoy mixing around with people from different cultures as Singapore is a mixture of an ethnic Malay population with a Chinese majority, as well as Indian and Arab immigrants. Moreover, I will enjoy countless fascinating experiences and take away memories that are uniquely Singapore as there are so many attractive places to visit here and I have listed down some of them from my research and include them in my 1-day itinerary tour in Singapore.

Here is my dream 1-day itinerary tour in Singapore!
Merlion Park 8.30a.m. - 9.00a.m.

I will begin my journey of the day visiting the Merlion Park. The Merlion is an imaginary creature with the head of a lion and the body of a fish. The lion head represents Singapore's original name "Singapura" which means lion city in Sanskrit and Malay. The Merlion is a well-known tourist icon of Singapore, therefore, it is a must for tourist like me to pay here a visit and take pictures here.

Jones the Grocer 9.30a.m. - 11.00a.m.

The journey continues with Jones the Grocer which is located at the Dempsey Hill. Jones the Grocer originates from Australia and carries a large range of house-branded products as well as other imported gourmet products. And this is where I am going to have very my first meal in Singapore.

Jones English Breakfast

National Museum 11.30a.m. - 1.00p.m.

Next, I am going to visit the National Museum of Singapore so that I can know more about this little island before I embark on a journey into Singapore. National Museum of Singapore is the oldest museum of Singapore with the youngest and most innovative soul. It is designed to be the people's museum, and it is the custodian of the 11 National Treasures.

Sentosa Island 1.30p.m. - 3.30p.m.

After visiting the National Museum, I am going to continue my tour with one of the main attractions of Singapore, which is the Sentosa Island. Famous attractions seen at Sentosa Island include the Animal Show, Artists Village, Bird Show, Butterfly Park and Insect Kingdom, Carlsberg Sky Tower and last but not least, the Underwater World.

Underwater World is a unique and well-known oceanarium showcasing some 2500 marine life from 250 species from around the regions and is extremely popular with all the visitors for providing fun, leisure and educational experiences.

Orchard Road 4.00p.m. - 5.30p.m.

My next destination after Sentosa Island will be the Orchard Road. It is the main shopping street of Singapore and it will be the paradise for shopaholics!I just can't wait to shop there :D

Chinatown 5.30p.m. - 6.30p.m.

Then, I will have my dinner at Chinatown for some chinese cuisines. Hainanese chicken rice, dim sum, pudding, egg tarts ... Here I come! :P

Night Safari 7.00p.m. - 9.00p.m.

After dinner, I am heading to Night Safari of Singapore to discover the beautiful and unusual wildlife of Singapore in the world's first Night Safari, set in 40 hectares of secondary jungle. A tram ride through this rich tropical jungle will follow a dramatically-changing terrain and showcase over 1200 animals of more than 110 exotic species.

Singapore Flyer 9.30p.m. - 10.30p.m.

Next, I am going to visit the Singapore Flyer, which is the most iconic architectural and engineering marvels in Asia. Towering 165 metres above Singapore, the Singapore Flyer is the world's largest observation wheel at 30 metres higher than the famed London Eye.

Clarke Quay 11.00p.m. - 11.59p.m.

To end my 1-day tour, I will chill and get some drinks at Clarke Quay. I believe that the scenery there will definitely melt my heart and it will surely be a memorable experience for me as I have never had any drinks on a boat like that before. This is how my dream 1-day itinerary tour in Singapore will be and I really hope that I will be given a chance to indulge in the Uniquely Singapore experience.
