Singapore has gained a serious reputation with the tourists who have and who want to visit it. With so much to do and see, it’s actually no wonder but that does come at a cost. If you want to make your Singapore travel a bit cheaper, you can include some of the below mentioned places in your Singapore holiday package. This way you get to see the aspects of the country that may contrast to the image of Singapore rapidly becoming one of most expensive cities in Asia.
Here we go.
1. Buddha Tooth Relic Temple: An involuntary dive into spirituality
A pretty much recent addition on the tourist landscape of the country, the building gives you
an impression of being very old. This building has only been around for 6 years but looks like it dates back from a much earlier age. Situated on the South Bridge Road of Chinatown, the temple also has a museum to enlighten the tourists about the relic it holds. The architecture is inspired from that of Tang Dynasty and a beauty to behold.
2. Sunbathe in Bukit Batok Town Park and feel like being in Phuket
Though not really on the tourists’ radar, it’s a place they would enjoy nonetheless after some busy days of popular destination of the Sentosa Island. Locally and fondly, it’s known as “Little Guilin”, one can find huge rocks of varying shapes and sizes coming out of water; these rocks are made of granite unlike of limestone that usually marks the other similar looking places.
3. Singapore Botanic Gardens: Feel at Ease with the Nature
One of the top destinations that people love to visit is these Gardens that are also in the consideration of getting included as UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 74 hectare property houses the National Orchid Garden and Burkill Hall, and a VIP Garden that has orchids named after their leaders like Former Philippine President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and Emperor Akihito.
4. Beaches: Can’t get enough of these
Though the tourists seem to believe about the lack of beaches, there are many swimmable beaches. The popular ones are Palawan Beach, Siloso Beach and Tanjong Beach in Sentosa. If the fee to enter Santosa is making you hesitant to enjoy such beaches, head to Changi Beach in addition to the East Coast beach stretch. Your Singapore honeymoon package would seem to be lacking if not for these beaches.
5. Explore the far-flung (sort of) islands
If you have just heard about Sentosa to visit in Singapore, you are mistaken. To begin with, Kusu and St. John’s islands are among the ones to be covered on a long Singapore tour. These are easily accessible by the ferries. Get swept away by the places to see: temples, picnic spots, beaches, and destinations dripping with myths and folklore.
6. The Ethnic Centres of the Modern Singapore
A uniqueness to cling to and nurture is what these ethnic communities are all about. Chinatown, Little India and Kampong Glam are all about showcasing this uniqueness in their eateries, dresses and marketplace to buy things that can pass as souvenirs with flying colours.
7. Esplanade: For fee-free concert memories
If you are a fan of music as much as any deprived soul is, you wouldn’t miss the chance to enjoy concerts every night, that too, for free. This is the best if you go by the opinions of so many visitors to the place. Both local and international talents perform here to let the word out about them. Some nights are also dedicated to theatre performances if you are in luck enough.
