Feb 10, 2008
Singapore can be found in Southeast Asia and is recognized as one of the world's richest countries. This country is also known as the shopping center of Asia as well as the world, and Singapore also has a very vibrant nightlife. These are the ten things that you should do whenever you are in Singapore.

1.) Enjoy New Year's Eve

Just like in any western country, New Year in Singapore is spent with a big bang - literally. During New Year's Eve, you will enjoy the splendid firework displays as well as the parties that happen afterwards. The most popular party is the foam party on Sentosa's beaches.

2.) Experience a Chinese New Year

If you want to experience New Year twice in a year, then the best place to be in is Singapore where they celebrate the Chinese New Year during February. This is also the busiest month of the year in Singapore as crowds and crowds of Singaporeans prepare for the 42-day celebration and flock to Chinatown. You should not miss seeing the Chingay Parade during this celebration as it happens along the Orchard Road.

3.) Ride the ferries

This is a great way to sightsee. You can ride ferries that will take you from Singapore to Riau Islands (a province of Indonesia) as well as Johor (a state of Malaysia). Through this, you will get a feel of the Singaporean way of life and culture.

4.) Go on a Cruise

There are cruises that are being offered in Singapore. Through this cruises, you will be able to see some of the countries near Singapore. Cruises can be a two-day trip or as long as a ten-day trip.

5.) Ride on a trishaw

Trishaws are bicycles that have three wheels. It is an old method of being transported from one place to another (not anymore used by the locals), and as such, it is a must-do for visitors and tourists. Here, you will be toured around Singapore's Chinatown as well as the Singapore River.

6.) Ride a bumboat

If you want to cruise along the Singapore River, then ride a bumboat. In this way, you also get to appreciate the majestic skyscraper buildings as well as the great view the Singapore River has to offer. There are also some bumboats that will take you to an island in Singapore that is unoccupied, therefore, a perfect place for picnics and a dip in the lagoon.

7.) Stroll along Chinatown as well as Little India and Bugis

Nothing will make a visitor appreciate the country more than strolling along Chinatown. This is a good way to familiarize yourself with the restaurants as well as shops that are abundant in the country. You can also visit museums as well as parks for a wonderful lovely afternoon.

8.) Visit the zoo and other parks and gardens

Singapore Zoo is a must-visit for any visitor, and it is home to a wide variety of both domestic and exotic animals. You can also go bird watching in Jurong Bird Park. There are also the Botanical Gardens for a lovely walk, and it is a great place where you can definitely relax.

9.) Shopping

What made Singapore so popular is that it is home to a lot of malls and shopping centers, expensive boutiques as well as little quaint shops. This country is the ultimate shopaholic's heaven as the prices are relatively low because of competition and low tax and tariff. There is also the popular Great Singapore Sale where you can get most items at a bargain, and the stores are open until midnight.

10.) Wine and Dine

Experience Singapore's native cuisine in its many restaurants. Taste their famous chili crabs as well as kaya and laksa. There are also restaurants that offer international cuisine as well.
