If your answers are YES, then Clarke Quay is your best option. Located in the heart of Singapore, you can reach this place easily by MRT – stop at Clarke Quay station (North East Line) and you’ll be able to see the view of Singapore River from there!
I see a lot of people come here with friends and couples. A lot of bars are around. You can enjoy live music, watch soccer, eat, drink, sing at KTV – it’s about having an awesome fun and superb parties here!
But how if you are not a night life lover like me? Well.. You can come here just to see the view of Singapore River, walk around to see the crowd, or maybe ride the G-MAX Bungee Ride (if you got the adrenaline). Conclusion: It will be no much fun if you don’t like night life, but if you never come here maybe try once also ok lah 😀
This place is very crowded especially on weekends and public holidays. Party birds should come here. But, let me warn you, things here is quite pricy. For alternative, maybe you can walk to Robertson Quay for drinks but quite far walking distance if you go from Clarke Quay.
So, is Clarke Quay your #1 option to spend your weekend?
Some of you maybe dunno what’s “Wings of Time”, but have you ever heard of “Songs of the Sea?”
Songs of the Sea ended after 7 years of its journey at 4 May 2014 and 6 weeks later, exactly on 17 June 2014, the new show called “Wings of Time” was born.
Wings of Time is a spectacular night show which sets outdoors with the majestic musics. It tells the story of two teenagers – Rachel and Felix, who help a mystical pre-historic bird find its way home. So, three of them travel across beautiful landscapes and go through the mysteries of time.
In “Wings of Time”, you can see the Industrial Revolution and the Silk Road eras combined together with the robotic water fountains and.3D video mapping. The water, laser, and fire effects : all of them just give you a mesmerizing view and immersive experience.
This show is suitable for all ages. Kids and adults will love it! You can hear nice musics and songs too! Just can’t get enough of it!
Fireworks in the end at the light effect will make you keep “WOW-ing”. It’s just beautiful and awesome. Very high tech too!
Sadly, the duration of the show is only 25 minutes. I might have wanted a one hour for a show like this hahaha..
So, there’s some tips for you who wants to watch “Wings of Time”:
1. You can spend your time from morning around 10 a.m. playing and having fun at Universal Studios, then have your dinner around Sentosa area at 6 p.m. then watch “Wings of Time” at 7.40 p.m.
2. You can visit Sea Aquarium, Madam Tussauds, or 3D Trick Eye Museum, or even Casino at Sentosa just before you watch the show at night.
3. Playing on the beach is one of the good things too! Siloso Beach is just nearby the “Wings of Time” theater.
So, how to go?
Nearest MRT station : HarbourFront
Stop at the MRT station and go to level 3 Vivocity to hop in Sentosa Express, stop at the Beach Station, walk around, and you can easily find the “Wings of Time” theater.
Admission ticket : SGD 23 (Adult), SGD 15 (Child) for two conservatories – indoor gardens (Flower Dome + Cloud Forest), FREE for outdoor gardens
One word to describe this place : MAGNIFICENT!!
You wanna find a garden in a city? Or a city in a garden? Whatever you choose, Garden by the Bay is your perfect choice. It is a strategy made by the Singapore government to transform Singapore from a “Garden City” to “City in the Garden”.
The park is extremely popular and I think it can be the icon of Singapore already. The park itself has three gardens : Bay South, Bay East, and Bay Central. The largest is the Bay South where you can find the Flower Dome, Cloud Forest, and the Supertree Grove.
When I went there, the place is seriously crowded. Thankfully I have bought my admission tickets before so I didn’t have to join the super long Q to get the tickets.
First time you come maybe you will feel a bit confuse coz it needs a long walk from the front entrance (Bay South) to the flower dome. But don’t worry, it’s all worth your time!
As you enter the flower dome, you can spot very many amazing views. If you’re a photo freak, this is one of the place that is MUST VISIT! You can find some different gardens inside the flower dome. Then after you have explored all the dome, you can continue to visit the Cloud Forest. Both the flower dome and cloud forest have air cond as they’re indoor gardens. Once you get inside the cloud forest, you can see the waterfall and you will feel like you’re in different world.
Then there’s the Supertree Grove. Make sure you reach there by 7.45 p.m or 8.45 p.m as it will be a music show called the OCBC Garden Rhapsody and you can see the Supertree come alive with the lights. You can just sit there, watching the show and snap lots of pictures or just enjoy the spectacular view.
This place is seriously amazing. I cannot stop “wow-ing” since I entered the place till I get out. If there’s just one place I can recommend in Singapore, Gardens by the bay will be the one.
Try to not come at daytime because it will be sunny and hot. The perfect time for you to come is around 5 p.m so you will have the time to explore the whole gardens and by 8.45 p.m you can enjoy the OCBC Garden Rhapsody.
Beware if you come at peak season because there will be a super long Q at the ticket counter. I suggest you to buy the entry ticket first so you can save your time. Don’t know how you get the ticket? You can email me through email@example.com and I will help you. You will get the cheaper price of course 😉
So, what do you think about this place? Have you been here before?
