How to spend top weekend in Singapore City - ideas on extraordinary attractions and sites

Raffles Place by Day Colorful amusement parks, comfortable beaches, internationally famous hotels and restaurants – what else can Singapore offer to its guests? Even if you visit Singapore during a transit flight and have to spend several hours in Changi Airport waiting for departure, you can still have some great time. If the waiting interval between the flights is more than five hours, all clients of the airport can sign up for a unique service – a free excursion to the city that covers all main landmarks of Singapore. Transit passengers can select from several tour routes. They can visit the most interesting and authentic districts of the city-state or can attend a shorter excursion and see the most famous architectural landmarks in less than two hours.

If it’s not the first time you visit Singapore and you know picturesque Chinatown and Little India like the back of your hand, it’s time to try some extreme entertainment. Virtually every amusement park offers thrilling rides for the bravest guests, but the legendary Tiger Sky Tower takes pride of place.

While on top, you will be able to see the city-state in detail and feel the splash of adrenaline because of the significant height.
When you familiarize yourself with all outstanding landmarks of the city, it’s high time to start searching for the “unluckiest” building in Singapore. That’s an unofficial name that locals gave to a modern skyscraper located not far from Bobby Fabrics. The high-rise building looks ordinary at a glance, with an unusual triangle shape being its only difference. However, Feng Shui experts claim that such a shape of the building brings bad luck. Many locals hurried to change the place of living when the construction works ended. Those, who don’t follow Feng Shui rules, continue admiring the wonderful example of modern architecture.

If you are already well-aware of all popular restaurants in Singapore and want something new, head to a clinic to dine. C Clinic is the name of one of the most unusual restaurants in the city.
