Singapore for Long Weekends
Singapore, with its melting pot of cuisine, culture and people, and a backdrop of pristine scenery, is an amazing place to visit. It is a futuristic city with so many innovations in a small compact land of only 721.5 km. Even though Singapore is a very modern city, that doesn't mean it is deprived of natural beauty, wildlife and beaches. It is safe to say that in this beautifully diversified city, you won’t miss out on any of a traveller's usual favourites, such as pleasant beach sides, beautiful sunsets, tasty food, amazing culture and insta-worthy snaps!

Discovering the Past and Future of Singapore
Singapore is rich with not only breathtaking skyscrapers, but also with old buildings that give tourists a sense of its past. Your first day will include visiting sites from its past and present so that you can understand how Singapore came to be. In addition to that, I have included recommendations for delicious traditional restaurants you should try on your first day there.
Shopping and Wildlife
Missing out on a shopping spree in Singapore is like missing out on the Eiffel Tower in Paris. From local to international brands, there are so many different options for shoppers in Singapore, which is why this Southeast Asian country has become a tourist hot spot for shopping.
While Singapore has amazing malls and futuristic buildings, it is generously endowed with wildlife too. The richness in its offerings makes tourists visit it repeatedly. So, I would recommend you follow up your shopping spree with a Night Safari excursion near the Singapore Zoo.
Tropical Beach and a Laid-back Evening
After you have taken in all of Singapore's cultures, spent all your money and driven your taste buds wild, it is time to have a relaxing day where you can spend most of your time chilling by the beach sipping martinis.
However, before you do that, you’re going to want to knock off one more adventurous activity - a trip to Universal Studios on Sentosa Island of course! Yes, Singapore is one of three countries that houses the Universal Park and Resort. Your morning trip here will keep you occupied for a considerable number of hours, after which you will only want to relax.
