What to see, food to eat, things to do, experiences that can’t be missed—here’s a guide to the best of Singapore in seven days that’s fit for all ages.
Morning and afternoon
Spend your first day in Singapore sampling all that our city has to offer with Singapore DuckTours and its hop-on and hop-off bus rides. The City Sightseeing package allows you to move at your own pace for the entire day—highlights include Little India, Orchard Road, Chinatown and Singapore Botanic Gardens.
Next, make your way to the Asian Civilisations Museum, home to a trove of relics and knowledge from around the region. You’ll be enchanted by stories of trade during the Tang Dynasty, uncover knowledge about ancient religions like Jainism and discover the world of Islamic Art.
If you’re visiting on a Saturday, be sure to check out the gallery’s range of family-themed activities. These include retellings of Chinese literary epics like Journey to the West and craft sessions that’ll have your little ones building their own miniature treasure ship.
In the evening, make your way down the historic Singapore River aboard a traditional bumboat with the Singapore River Cruise. Let your guide engage the whole family in a captivating tale of Singapore’s two famous quays—Boat Quay and Clarke Quay—and take in the scenic views of the Marina Bay area as the boat cruises by.
