6-Day Singapore Itinerary

Day 01 at Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by the Bay

You’ve got to start your Singapore trip at the Marina Bay Sands.  Go on a stroll around the shops at Marina Bay Sands, there are a bunch of luxury stores and dining options. For great views head to the SkyPark Observation Deck. Later in the evening go to Gardens by the Bay- I booked my entrance tickets here. There are different exhibitions at times, so check out what’s happening before you go. At the Gardens by the Bay explore the Cloud Forest and Flower Dome. In the evening enjoy the Garden Rhapsody light and sound show at the  Supertree Grove. For a delightful vegetarian meal, visit Sufood at nearby Raffles City.

Day 02 at Sentosa Island & Universal Studios

Today is going to be a long one, as you explore Sentosa Island and Universal Studios. Now, if you wish to do a lot of activities at both places, I recommend splitting it into two days. And if you are generally someone who likes a slower/relaxed pace, please split it. But if you are short on time, start your day at Universal Studios Singapore, buy an express pass so that you don’t have to wait in line and be smart about the rides you wish to go on. Choose to relax at Siloso or Palawan Beach, perfect for sunbathing and beach activities. If you are an adventurous soul try some rides at SkyPark, Mega Adventure Park and iFly. For a vegan-friendly meal, head to The Garden at Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa.

Day 03 at Hawker Centers and Shopping

Ready for a foodie adventure? Start your morning at Maxwell Food Centre, where you can feast on kaya toast and kopi—local breakfast classics. Next, head to Tekka Market for some amazing Indian dishes like dosa and biryani. By evening, it’s time to hit Orchard Road, Singapore’s shopping haven. Explore the endless malls and boutique stores.  Don’t miss NomVNom Bistro for scrumptious plant-based burgers and snacks. 

Day 04 at Chinatown and Night Safari

Let’s dive deep into Singapore’s vibrant culture! Begin your day at the Peranakan Museum, where you’ll uncover the rich blend of Chinese and Malay heritage through captivating exhibits. It’s a fascinating journey into history and tradition.

Afterwards, wander through Chinatown, where lively street markets beckon with aromatic foods and unique souvenirs. Don’t miss the ornate Buddha Tooth Relic Temple—it’s a breathtaking glimpse into Singapore’s spiritual side. For a bite, stop by Well Dressed Salad Bar & Café. At night choose to go for the Singapore Night Safari on a guided tram ride, get your tickets in advance here.

Day 05 at Botanic Gardens and ArtScience Museum

Start the day with a serene morning stroll through the Singapore Botanic Gardens. The National Orchid Garden inside is like stepping into a rainbow of flowers—seriously stunning! 

For a unique perspective visit the ArtScience Museum, shaped like a giant lotus flower. Here you’ll find some of the coolest installations, there are some moving exhibitions too. Check out the latest happenings and book tickets here. Later in the evening explore the streets of Hajilane and settle for a dinner at one of the restaurants. 

Day 06 at Iconic Spots and Nightlife at Clarke Quay

On your last full day in Singapore, hit the iconic spots! Start at Merlion Park—it’s a must for that classic snapshot with the famous half-lion, half-fish statue against the city skyline. Afterwards, hop onto the Singapore Flyer for breathtaking views of the entire city. Wrap up your amazing trip with dinner and drinks at Clarke Quay.

Have more than 6 days in Singapore?

If you are in Singapore for more than 6 days, consider taking a cruise in Singapore. I recommend taking the weekend high seas Genting cruise, it’s a 2-night cruise and is an absolutely brilliant way to add some fun to your holiday. Here’s the direct booking link of the Singapore cruise.
