- See sea animals and go snorkeling
Blue waters, perfect beaches, and colorful corals. Do I have to mention anything else? Going on each or doing a day trip to the beautiful island is must thing to do in Singapore whatever you were tourist, normal traveler or digital nomad. If you are staying in Singapore for a longer time, consider learning diving and go see even more beautiful parts of the sea.
- Haji Lane
If you want something different and cool, Haji Lane is the right destination for you. This street full of hip graffiti, shops and cafes are popular among locals and those travelers who want to get out of the most touristy destinations. Just walk around and enjoy the chilled atmosphere of Haji Lane.
Before visiting Haji Lane, I googled a bit about the place only to know that Haji Lane has come a cult only in the last few years. The community of shopkeepers that you find here are a closely knit community.
You’ll get anything to everything here. Even if you do not buy anything here, the cafes are a must visit.
- The MacRitchie Treetop Walk
Nature is one of the main things to enjoy in Singapore and what would be better place to do that than from the sky! MacRitchie trails are one of the most popular nature hikes in central Singapore and Treetop Walk is part of several of them. On Treetop Walk, you will walk around between the top parts of the trees and see nature in a different part of its growth.
- Go midnight shopping
If you are one of those digital nomads who find themselves working in the middle of the night or you just hate big crowds, try doing you shopping at night time. Especially during weekends, many shops are open until late hour but for true night owls 24 hours open Mustafa Shopping Center is the only right place to go.
- Universal Studios Singapore
Someone may tell you that Universal Studios is only for kids. That’s a lie. Everyone should visit this big theme park that allows you to visit the most popular movies of our time. It is a little expensive for those on budget but totally worth they money.
Before you book a ticket to Universal Studios you need to make sure of the ticket you want to buy. The studios is pretty huge and might get difficult to cover everything within the limited time. The park is busiest during weekends of June, September and December. So plan accordingly.
If you have already booked tickets (get the express pass) the best thing to do is to reach early.
