In case you are missing India, head over to Little India and you will be transported back to India (not Literally). This buzzing ethnic place shows us the cultural side of Indians settled in Singapore. Its known for its shopping too especially the Mustafa Shopping Center. The Sri Veeramalaiamman Temple, though difficult to pronounce is worth visiting here. If you fancy Indian food, then here you will be spoilt for choices. This was our place to go whenever my kid craved for a Dosa.
The Buddha Tooth Relic Temple
Like Little India this is another ethnic part of Singapore. China Town stands apart from rest of Singapore as it displays its rich culture in the form of ornate Chinese temples, the decorated streets in red and gold and the flavor of the food that are sold in old shop-houses lining the bustling streets. this place looks best at dusk with the Chinese lanterns swaying in the breeze.

From stylish seating, amazing collection of orchids to live jazz music, this airport has it all. If you have time to spare some of the attractions that should not be missed are the kinetic rain dance centerpiece and the cactus, waterlily and sunflower garden.

A 45 minutes Ferris wheel ride shows us incredible obstructive view of Singapore. The ride is much more exciting after sunset when the city’s skyline lights up in spectacular colors.

Singapore Night Safari
The exciting Night Safari
There is something mystifying about nocturnal creatures. Amiable as well as wild. Imagine visiting these creatures in their own private enclosures in complete darkness. The Singapore Night Safari does just that and the results are enthralling.
Pro Tip: You need an entry ticket to enter the Night Safari and it is advisable to book your tickets online to save time and energy as you can then skip the long ticketing queues. We bought our tickets from Klook Travel, with good discounts, very convenient and the booking confirmations came instantly.
The rain-forest themed zoo housing more than 300 animal species, is fascinating for kids and adults alike. The freely roaming animals and interactive sessions with them make it an experience to cherish.
The impression of a zoo, what we had in mind was that of animals caged, alone in an enclosure that in no way resemble their natural habitat. so here we were in a bit of shock. This was nothing like that in fact Singapore Zoo was more like an interactive experience with the animals.
