What to do in Singapore

Visit the Gardens by the Bay

To leave behind the skyscrapers and chill out somewhere green, there's nowhere better than the Gardens by the Bay. There's lots to explore across the 101-hectare development, but look out for the Supertrees – self-sustaining tree-like structures that turn sunlight into energy.

Visit Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple

This 19th century Chinese temple is one of the best of its kind in Singapore. It has a rich history – during the Second World War it functioned as a refuge for the sick and elderly. Today, it draws thousands of people every day, and visiting it is said to bring good luck. This is one of the most exciting places to be in the city during the Chinese New Year.

This excellent zoo is one of the best family-friendly attractions in Singapore. From the moment you're greeted by the macaws at the entrance, it's easy to feel like a big kid as you wander from enclosure to enclosure.

L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon (Fusion)

Can’t decide between sushi and tapas? The award-winning L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon is inspired by both.
