Number 6 - Clarke Quay and Nightlife of Singapore (MUST SEE)

Whether we live in Singapore or travel here for a holiday, we must never miss the nightlife of Singapore. Nightlife is what makes a city vibrant and exciting, adding colours to city life. Clarke Quay is an area filled with bars, pubs, clubs catering to different crowds, by the river. Head down to Clarke Quay for some drinks at 10pm and then at 11pm, hit the clubs. Visit Zirca and Rebel or Pump Room. It would sure be a GOOD GOOD NIGHT! The clubs are MASSIVE and the music IS GREAT! Most clubs play RnB, Hip Hop, House.




Number 7 - Pulau Ubin (MUST SEE)


Pulau Ubin is an offshore island of Singapore. It is a quiet island where locals go to get away from the city life. Cycle through the island and see village houses and walk on the beaches and board walks at the coasts!


Number 8 - Orchard Road

Singapore's shopping district housing international brands. Come during December and witness the glitz of the Christmas light-up! For crazy shoppers!




Number 9 - Lim Chu Kang Jetty, Lim Chu Kang farms


Lim Chu Kang is Singapore's tiny countryside. There are fish farms, orchid farms, a goat farm, a chicken farm and many offbeat tracks to explore. Then there is the Lim Chu Kang Jetty that many people do not know of. I recommend the Jetty for locals who want to watch the sunset and also catch some little cute fishes with bottles and pails, the childhood way.



Number 10 - Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Thian Hock Keng Temple (MUST SEE)

Buddha Tooth Relic Temple - Fully air-conditioned


Thian Hock Keng Temple

Buddha Tooth Relic Temple houses impressive Buddhist artefacts revered by Buddhists and the Hundred Dragons Hall, built according to Tang Dynasty architecture. Lots to see in this MASSIVE, air-conditioned temple at South Bridge Road.

Thian Hock Keng Temple, on the other hand is Singapore's OLDEST temple. It was built by early Chinese immigrants to honour Ma Zu, the Goddess of the sea who oversaw sea-farers in their perilous journey to Nanyang (Southern Sea, Singapore).

Other places of worship worth visiting are Sultan Mosque and The Cathedral of the Good Shepherd, Singapore's oldest Roman Catholic Church.
