Singapore in a Day

Singapore in a Day

If you're planning to visit Singapore but you're tight on time (and budget), here's my suggested itinerary to visit all the iconic landmarks and food that Singapore has to offer!

1. Breakfast at Ya Kun Kaya Toast

Ya Kun is a well known name in Singapore (and the rest of Asia) for it's toast and kopi. Remember to go to their original store in Chinatown for your slice of coconut jam toast!

2. Explore Chinatown

Chinatown is a huge part of Singapore so it's worth a walk around to see some of the cultural aspects of the city.

Of course, you can't leave Chinatown without stopping by Maxwell Food Center for $3.50SGD Hainanese Chicken Rice.

3. Ride the Singapore Flyer

Take the MRT and get off at Promenade Station to ride the Singapore Flyer. An adult ticket costs $30SGD so it might be one of the pricier attractions but it'll give you a very nice view of Singapore from the top.

4. The Millenia Walk to Marina Bay Sands

After riding the Singapore Flyer, take a walk on the DNA/Helix Bridge and snap as many photos as you like on this iconic bridge. It winds across the river to the Marina Bay Sands hotel/mall.

Stop by for a quick bite inside the mall or continue taking photos of the city skyline by the boardwalk. 

5. Spicy Chili Crab at the Fullerton

No visit to Singapore is complete without having spicy chili crab. Mellben Seafood is one option but it's difficult to get to without a taxi or if you don't know your way around. Another option is Palm Beach Seafood. It's right by the Fullerton Hotel and many tourist attractions so it's a little more expensive but their chili crab is one of the most popular in Singapore. (Also, if you have room for dessert, Lady M Mille Crepe is right next door!)

Walk off the itus by snapping a picture with the Merlion and taking in the Singapore view at night.

If you're looking for some night life options, the bar on top of Marina Bay Sands is definitely a good place to hang out (but be prepared to spend $50SGD alone just to get to the top) or Ann Siang Hill is the Soho District of Singapore. 

6. Orchard Road

If you have time the next day before your next destination, you can explore Orchard Road and try their local ice cream sandwiches or do some last minute shopping at the ION Orchard.
