Even though Singapore is a city you could easily spend a week exploring all the incredible architecture, vegan food places and small and large streets, here’s a 24h Singapore guide that will give you an insight to the center of this city within 24h without you having to run around from one spot to the other and no time to enjoy it all. Make sure to always look around while going from one spot to the other: All the trees on top of the skyscrapers and the green plants growing on the facades of these buildings are quite impressive!
Day I, Evening
-Start at the Marina Bay. From the Jubilee Bridge you can see all the incredible architecture by night like the Theatres at the Bay, the ArtScience Museum and of course the Marina Bay Sands that look like a huge ship in the air.
– Have dinner. Singapore has quite a few vegan places. To find out more about how to travel vegan, check out my last post here.
Day II, Morning
– For a savory breakfast, head over to Little India. Walk through the streets, have a look at the little shops and the fruits, vegetables and flowers sold on the street. Get breakfast in one of the many authentic Indian restaurants. Be prepared to eat with your hands!
– Take the subway to Chinatown. After walking around all the small stalls and nibbling on some fresh jack fruit, go to the
– Sri Mariamman Temple, which is Singapore’s oldest Hindu temple.
– Further down the street, you’ll get to the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, a Buddhist temple that houses a relic that is said to be a fragment of tooth from Buddha.
– From there, take a short walk to the Thian Hock Keng Temple. On the way there you’ll walk through small streets where you can hardly tell that you’re actually in a major city that’s home to over 5 million people. The temple has been constructed after the traditional Chinese design and is dedicated to a Chinese sea goddess.
Day II, Afternoon
– After all these impressions, it’s finally time for lunch. Fill a Pita is the perfect place to satisfy your hummus and falafel cravings. Another spot for a quick lunch is NomVnom, an all vegan burger place that’s located in the Central Basement 1 of Clarke Quay Central.
– Most of the afternoon is dedicated to the beautiful Gardens by the Bay, my favorite place in Singapore. Take the subway to the Bayfront station and follow the signs to the Gardens. Here you can have another look at the Marina Bay Sands by day. You don’t have to pay anything to walk around the park, for entering the futuristically constructed buildings, however, you’ll have to get a ticket. I highly recommend visiting the Cloud Forest and Flower Dome. Not only is the architecture quite impressive, I could walk around the cactuses, flowers and trees for hours. Make sure to check out this post to get an impression of the plants you can find there.
– Eventually, you’ll finish the 24h where you first started: at the Marina Bay. The Helix Bridge is just a stort walk from the Flower Dome and the perfect place to have a look at the bay from another angle.
Get inspired and enjoy Singapore!
