When you think of Singapore, the first things that come to mind are innovation, tall skyscrapers, ultra-clean streets, and efficient transportation system. These are among the things that tourists enjoy about this city-nation. But if you look closely, you will realize that Singapore is a green city. Nature and urbanity interweave seamlessly. And the amalgamation of two seemingly opposite ideals is what makes the country more than appealing.
You surely want to visit Singapore because of its rich culture, but do you know that you can enjoy your stay by visiting some of the most beautiful nature-inspired destinations in the country. So you may look into your itinerary again and make some revisions if necessary. You are in for a treat!
If you are looking to find the next destinations that you want to visit Singapore, let this article be your guide. Here are some of the best places worth looking forward to whether you are visiting the country for the first, second, or even third time:
Hike at Mount Faber
Hiking? In Singapore? It is possible. While the country is seemingly small, it is packed with nature’s gifts. The density of nature-based destinations is great that you can always find their beauty wherever you look. But if you are looking for some action, you may want to take a hike at Mount Faber. It is going to be a long hike, so you better have some warm-ups (do not skip leg day!). But when you succeed, you will be treated to a breathtaking view of Singapore.
Go to Sentosa Island
You may want to leave the island to visit another. In this case, you may want to visit Sentosa Island. Initially, a military base, the island has grown to become one of the most popular resort islands in the world. You may choose to visit Universal Studios at first and then marvel at the pristine sands of the beaches the next day. Complete the experience by riding the cable car to Sentosa Island.
Marvel at the colours of the Gardens by the Bay
In the middle of the city, it is always possible to find nature. But if you want something that depicts the interaction of innovation and nature, it is recommended that you visit the Gardens by the Bay. It is a humongous garden that lets you enjoy and appreciate the different species of flora. If you want to see the gardens of other nations, you should visit the Flower Dome that houses different flowers sourced from different continents.
Visit the Changi Beach
Have a thing for beaches and parks? You should visit Changi Beach. There are a lot of green spaces, and the best of all, they are close to the beach. There are pathways that you can tread, which are sheltered by the shade of the trees. Cap the day by walking down the Changi Point Coastal Walk. Make it memorable by watching the beautiful sunset.
Singapore is close to nature, so you should make the most of it while you are in the country. Take a lot of photos!
