The Third Day and Beyond

By: markhsx on 02 Jun 2011
After completing our full one-day or two-day itinerary, you would have already seen the best of that best that Singapore has to offer. However, this island city, so full of things to see and do, still has surprises in store for you! We have crafted a range of half-day itineraries that are tailored to suit different travellers, and centred around different areas around the island, so that your remaining days in Singapore will bring you to places and experiences you will not soon forget.

These half-itineraries have been timed such that they can be mixed and matched to make a wonderfully fulfilling day. The day itineraries take you around Singapore from the morning (at around 9am) through the afternoon (to around 4pm), while the evening itineraries last from the late afternoon (at around 5pm) till nighttime (at around 9pm through late), allowing time to travel between any points on the island.

Family Fun in Jurong: Jurong Bird Park to Science Centre or Discovery Centre

Jurong, which is often synonymous with Western Singapore, was reclaimed from the swampy hills of a sleepy rural area and transformed into Singapore's industrial domain. Yet, amidst the factories lies sprawling green spaces, theme parks, and edutainment centres which has turned Jurong into an escape from urban life and a major excursion destination for schoolchildren and families alike. The Jurong Bird Park enchants visitors with its waterfall landscapes and the vibrant colours of feathered friends from all around the world, and the Science Centre and Discovery Centre takes young ones on learning journeys as they delve into the wonderful world of science or Singapore's making as a nation. This suburban destination never fails to inspire wonder in childrens' eyes.

An Intermission in the East: Changi Village to Changi Point Coastal Walk to Changi Memorial and Museum to Downtown East and Wild Wild Wet

The eastern end of Singapore is a peaceful retreat off the beaten track that provides a welcome contrast to the frenzied city, and the laid-back, relaxed atmosphere indulges the clichés of swaying palms, seaside bars and beach resorts. Although Changi lies at the centre of Singapore's aviation industry, its seaside setting remains an attractive leisure destination, and has been so even for the colonial British in the 1930s. Adjacent Pasir Ris is a largely residential area, but is home to open parks, rich mangroves, as well as themes park and holiday chalets that are popular with students. A day in the East is sure to calm your senses and take you back to a time when things were simpler.

Universal Studios Singapore: Resorts World Sentosa and Universal Studios Singapore

Universal Studios Singapore, one of the must-see tourist attractions in Singapore is one of the most diverse theme parks in the world based on various themes set in some of the most famous movies and TV shows. Filled with exciting attractions, Universal Studios Singapore is also the first to host some of the rides and shows, including the Far Far Away Castle and the world's tallest duelling roller coasters based on a Science Fiction TV show. Do not miss this sure-to-be unforgettable experience!

A Southern Night: VivoCity to Henderson Waves to Holland Village or St James Power Station

Singapore's southern districts, like many areas around the island, have recently been updated and upgraded through new projects and redevelopment of existing destinations. This half-day itinerary gives you a taste of New Singapore, starting at the seaside VivoCity megamall which is the gateway to Sentosa Island, now enveloped in a flurry of activity as visitors flock to the new Resorts World Sentosa. Head further inland to the Henderson Waves bridge of the new Southern Ridges Walk, a 9km trek of nature trails and boardwalks that links three hilltop parks – Mount Faber, Telok Blangah, and Kent Ridge. End the day at Holland Village, a timeless destination of bars and cafés, or St James Power Station, the massively iconic clubbing destination.

Battlefield Singapore: The Battle Box at Fort Canning Park  to Reflections at Bukit Chandu to Memories at Old Ford Factory to Kranji War Memorial

This itinerary takes you through the war, beginning at The Battle Box at Fort Canning Park, Singapore's largest underground military operations complex during the war. Two of Singapore's new and engaging interpretative centres are next -
Reflections at Bukit Chandu, where the Malay Regiment made their heroic last stand against the Japanese, and Memories at Old Ford Factory, where the Allied forces surrendered in 1942. The tour ends at the quiet Kranji War Memorial, an immaculately-maintained war cemetery containing over 4000 graves of Allied servicemen.
