Top 10 Scenic Places in Singapore to Visit

Looking for a spot of nature or scenic places in this hectic metropolitan city after a long week in the office? Look no further and take a look at our top 10 best places to visit in Singapore.

1) Mount Faber

Mount-Faber

Amidst the urban sophistication of Singapore, Mount Faber possesses the beauty of nature from a paranomic view of the Singapore skyline. Discover the glittering gems at The Jewel Box and immerse yourself in this serene getaway from the city.

For chilling out over dinner and drinks, perhaps you would like to try the restaurants on the hilltop for a night with a bird-eye’s view. For a step further, you can opt to wine and dine on a cable car with your loved ones!

Visit: www.mountfaber.com.sg

2) Tanjong Beach, Sentosa

Tanjong Beach

A relatively hidden and unspoiled stretch of beach along Sentosa, it’s one of my personal favourites when it comes to tranquility and solitude. Arm yourself with a novel and settle yourself down in a spot with a gentle breeze for company. With the twinkling lights of nearby ships, this stretch of beach becomes exceptionally romantic at sunset, which explains its popularity as one of the top spots for wedding photography.

3) Hort Park

Hort-Park

Part of the 9 km Southern Ridges spanning green spaces from West Coast Park to Mount Faber in Singapore, off Alexandra, Hort Park is the latest hot spot for a nature walk amidst uniquely interesting garden landscapes.

4) Henderson Waves

Henderson-Waves

Singapore’s highest pedestrian bridge, also part of the Southern Ridges, is built to connect the two hills of Mount Faber and Telok Blangah Hill and has a wave like form made up of seven adjoining curved steel structures. It has become a popular spot for photographers with a keen eye for unique details.

5) Fort Canning Park

Fort Canning

With its proximity to the city area, Fort Canning’s a place buzzing full of old rich war memorial nostalgia. It has currently morphed into a popular venue for dynamic outdoor concerts and the arts such as sculpture exhibitions, plays, opera and open-air ballet.

Being the solemnization venue for many wedding couples, feel the atmosphere of marital bliss on the hilltop. You can also opt to hold functions at the town club, The Legends. Look out for the Spice Garden as well, a replica of the original 19-hectare tract Raffles established in 1822 as the first experimental and botanical garden in Singapore.

6) Marina Barrage

Marina-Barrage

Marine Barrage, Singapore’s 15th reservoir and first in the heart of the city makes a stunning backdrop against the city skyline. Together with 2 other new reservoirs, this will increase Singapore’s catchment area to two-thirds of Singapore’s land area.

It has become one of Singapore’s latest photography spots for dating couples and families. Take a ride atop the Singapore Flyer for a wheeling good time!

Fullerton perfectly captures the gorgeous Singapore skyscraper skyline, with the symphony of the iconic “durian”, Esplanade and the historically rich colonial Fullerton Hotel merging seamlessly in one of Singapore’s most stunning views at night. The pulsating vibrancy of this place in the smack of the city cannot be denied.

Singapore Esplanade

To take the experience one step further, consider going to the nearby Boat Quay or Clarke Quay for late night drinks amidst the crowded night scene with all its city lights by the riverside. New Asia Bar at Swissotel Stamford also offers a gorgeous bird’s eye view of the City Hall area from above.

Never revisited the bird park since primary school days? If not, it’s time to do so again! It’s a visual spectacular feast of more than 600 species of exotic birds.
