25 Photos to Make You Wonder Why You Haven’t Visited Singapore Yet

Brace yourself for an eye feast of a lifetime with these photos of Singapore.

With over 20 million visitor arrivals per year, Singapore’s no stranger to inbound travellers. But there are still people who, for whatever incomprehensible reasons, are not visiting this beautiful nation yet. And since listing the reasons to visit Singapore is going to take us forever, we’ll let the pictures do the talking.

If you think this is pretty, wait till you see the windows light up in their full glory at night.

This newly built heritage centre isn’t just a museum showcasing the diversity of Indian art forms, but an architectural gem that comes to life at night.

Most museums will leave you feeling all cultured and refined, but this one’s going to mind-boggle the hell out of you.

Given the massive geographical area that HDB flats take up in our meagre land size, they sure are under-visited by tourists. These gaudy coloured public housing may not be the prettiest, but they serve as the building blocks (quite literally) of our unique little city. Definitely worth a tour or two.

Gardens by the Bay is a horticultural mega project featuring solar-powered and climate-controlled flower domes; the most dramatic man-made forest you’ll walk through.

When you set foot on the grounds of a country that outranks the world with its investment potential, of course you have to check out its busiest financial district.

You wouldn’t imagine a fast-paced metropolitan city to have beaches like this, would you?

And a kampong too?

23. Little Guilin

This abandoned quarry – a little slice of Guilin, China – in Western Singapore is a favourite chilling spot for anglers, photographers and apparently, skinny-dippers.

25. The best for the last

We’re cheating a little on this one. But if the 23 points above are not convincing, Singapore’s dining scene alone suffices to have you getting your tickets here pronto.
