Singapore’s Tourist Destinations

On our 2nd day in Singapore, our travel guide gave us a City Tour. First stop was the Merlion Park. Walking towards the merlion park, we passed by this beautiful garden and crossed a victorian type bridge which I found perfect for picture taking. 🙂 Of course, every vacation isn’t complete without pictures right? So I looked for a place where I could get a good angle of the bridge. Then, a tourist boat passed by which made it so beautiful to me. 🙂


Our tourist guide explained that the government people decided to take down the “daddy” merlion so they can replace it with a hotel. So what’s left now is this baby merlion.

The Merlion place is surrounded by big buildings famous for their architectural design. I love the Marina Bay Sands hotel whose amenities are housed on a shiplike structure on top of the 3 hotel buildings. Then, there’s “The Palm”, which is Singapore’s library and science center , I think? hehe… I should have listened more to our tourist guide huh?


Beautiful right? Whoever built this is a genius, as far as I am concerned. 🙂

These are some of the modern buildings around the Merlion Park.

On our way out, I saw this gorgeous watch tower!

SINGAPORE GEMS AND METAL CO.

After visiting the merlion park, we were brought to a gem store. Their products , made of different gemstones were very intricately carved, they look so astounding!

National Orchid Garden:

Our last stop for the day was the National Orchid Garden. I love it, specially their souvenir store which sells a gold plated “adjustable necklace”.. 🙂 I love their orchids, but since I come from Davao, our orchids here are one of the most beautiful flowers on earth! I’m exaggerating I think? haha… But who haven’t heard of waling-waling? Davao is famous for that!

                

Exotic Flowers


Ahhh.. this is why I love travelling. There are so many things to see, it seems like a lifetime, isn’t enough to explore all of them…
