Top 5 Must Do's in Singapore

Edit This
Singapore is known for its exquisite uniqueness that resonates in a country where culture and technology mesh together almost seamlessly. Any itinerary for Singapore would not be complete without absorbing the culture. With that said, here is a list of the top 5 things you must do on your vacation to Singapore.  

1. Mustafa Centre and Little India  

Mustafa Centre is often described as cramped, but a better word is quaint. There are rows and rows of narrow alleys that house any item or product you could imagine. This attraction is famous for having the lowest prices in the entire country on electronics and the best part is that the Centre stays open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  

2. Singapore Mosques

A trip to Singapore is not complete without visiting at least one of the Mosques. Be sure to check out the most impressive of all, the Masiid Sultan which accommodates up to 5,000 people praying at once. You also won’t want to miss the former Sultan’s Palace, the Malay Heritage Centre, or the Istana Kampong Glam. Each houses different artifacts and puts on live music and dance displays, making each a great place to connect with the culture.  

3.  View the Ritualistic Spectacles

Depending on the time of year that you visit you should be able to enjoy one of the ritualistic events that take place in Singapore. This is especially true if you visit in February during Thaipusam. It is one of the most spiritual days of the year as dedicated devotees take to the street, shave their heads, and wear a shrine made of metal skewers. It is definitely a sight to see.  

4. Watch a Show at the Durian

People in Singapore call the Esplanade Theater the Durian because it looks like the popular fruit. The Theater can accommodate 2,000 people, but the true spectacle is outside. Walk the streets out front before the show, and you'll enjoy free music shows and some delightful dining options, al fresco style.  

5. Indulge in a Singapore Breakfast  

You may be tempted to go for the American breakfast offered at your hotel, but this won't give the full Singapore experience. Head out and grab a table at the very popular Ya Kun Kaya which is located in the Far East Square. You can enjoy boiled eggs, a toasted sandwich with coconut jam, and a strong coffee. This particular establishment was started all the way back in 1926 and now is must do when visiting Singapore .
