Singapore, the smallest country in Southeast Asia, is not just another stop-over destination. It is a hip and futuristic metropolis. With over 300 parks and 4 nature reserves, Singapore is also one of the greenest cities in the world. For those who finally want to discover a distant destination, we have listed the nine ‘must dos’ of Singapore in a row. The city-state reopened on April 1 to all fully vaccinated travelers and without quarantine rules.

1. Stroll the Marina Bay Waterfront promenade and visit the spectacular Gardens by the Bay

Gardens by the Bay
At Marina Bay, in the heart of the city, you can relax along the water and take beautiful pictures of the skyline. You will spot the famous hotel Marina Bay Sands, with 3 gigantic towers of 57 floors and on top of that the largest rooftop infinity pool in the world. At night it is even more spectacular with an impressive light show. Right next door are the Gardens by the Bay: a hugely colorful and futuristic park, characterized by the famous Supertree structures. Here you can walk high through the Supertree Grove and through the gardens with oversized shell-shaped greenhouses that mimic cold mountain climates.

2. Discover the unknown islands of Singapore where nature enchants you
Singapore consists of no fewer than 64 islands. If you want to get away from the bustle of the city, you can take a ferry to one of the islands south of the mainland, such as Saint John’s Island or Lazarus Island. On these lesser-known islands you will find lagoons, beaches, picnic areas and hiking trails. Pristine natural beauty is what you will find here.
3. Explore downtown Singapore with a Bumboat
