Hi there

Here are some suggestions to improve your 4-day vacation in Singapore:


Day 1 - Chinatown, Singapore River & Marina Bay

Morning: Walking tour of Chinatown

Afternoon: Walking tour of Singapore River

Evening:
Culminate with a stroll along the Marina Bay waterfront. Be sure to catch the free laser show 'Wonder Full' put up by Marina Bay Sands (8.00pm & 9.30pm). Dinner could be local delights at the open-air eatery called Makansutra Glutton's Bay, next to the Esplanade Theatres.


Day 2 - Sentosa Island

Take in Universal Studios Singapore, plus a couple of other fun activities on Sentosa Island. Or if you plan of spending less, check out this DIY one-day Sentosa Island tour itinerary.


Day 3 - Light Activity, Singapore Zoo & Night Safari

Morning: Light activities, such as:

a) having tea at Raffles Hotel's Seah Street Deli or Empire Cafe,

b) taking the Duck Tour, or

c) taking a Singapore River Cruise.

Afternoon: Singapore Zoo

Evening: Night Safari

It's quite tiring to visit 3 animal parks in a day, given the heat and humidity in Singapore. Hence, do something light in the morning. If you're out of time, give the Bird Park a miss and settle on just the Zoo and Night Safari.


Day 4 - Little India & Orchard Road

Morning: Walking tour of Little India

Afternoon: Walking tour of Orchard Road
