Interesting Places to Visit When You Visit Singapore
Although Singapore is a small city, it still has quite a few interesting places for you to visit. In this article, let me share with you some important tourist places in Singapore:
1. East Coast Park. East Coast Park is a popular playground among Singaporeans and I believe tourists will like it too. It covers a sprawling area and you can do a lot of activities there such as bowling, cycling, running, windsurfing, canoeing, picnicking, BBQ, etc. If you are the sporty guy, you definitely must visit East Coast Park.
2. Chinese and Japanese Gardens. The 2 gardens are situated adjacent to one another and they are just 5 minutes walk from the Chinese Garden MRT station. If you are into Chinese history, you will definitely like the Chinese Garden. It is a reflection of the Chinese Imperial Garden, which has twin pagodas. The Japanese Garden has a distinct style which reflects the Japanese culture accurately.
3. Bukit Timah nature reserve. Bukit Timah nature reserve is a 164 hectare rainforest which contains several species of plants. If you love trekking, this is one of the best wildlife sanctuaries.
