Singapore may not be huge in size but even so, there are still plenty of places to visit as well as activities that you can do to keep yourself occupied. We have created a list of Places / Sites to Visit in Singapore for Free so you can go on numerous adventures with your friends and family exploring every nook and cranny in Singapore and not have to spend too much!

This list is not exhaustive and we’ll be constantly adding more to the list so do check back regularly.

Disclaimer: For some of the places listed, you will need to pay for the transport i.e. ferry to Pulau Ubin, Southern islands. Museums listed are free for locals and PRs (mostly). Enter Sentosa via Sentosa Express, and drive in for free until 31 December 2020!

Note: Some places may be closed due to COVID-19.
