by Albert Justiniano
(Manila, Philippines)

A 5-day Singapore tour taking in the main attractions - Night Safari, Universal Studios, Sentosa and city centre spots. Plus some shopping...

Day 1 Arrive in Singapore, check in at Hotel, then go to Night Safari (since they open starting 7 pm?)

Day 2 - Visit Universal Studios and Sentosa Island

Day 3 - Shopping trip after hearing mass at St. Joseph's (its my daughter's birthday) - whole day at Orchard Road, then ending at Marina Bay area.

Day 4 - See some historical landmarks - Merlion, Raffles Hotel, etc.; end with more shopping for electronics (Don't know the best place for electronics....help please)

Day 5 - Since our flight is at 1655 (4 pm?), maybe explore the malls around our hotel before heading off to the airport after lunch.


Hi Albert

Some of my thoughts regarding your Singapore tour itinerary:


Day 1 - Night Safari

Assuming an afternoon arrival, a trip to the Night Safari after hotel check-in sounds good. The eateries at Night Safari tend to be expensive (at least in my opinion), so you might want to have dinner near your hotel before leaving for the Night Safari.


Day 2 - Universal Studios and Sentosa Island

It takes a day to enjoy Universal Studios Singapore. So you'll probably be able to fit in only one or two fun things at Sentosa in the evening, e.g. Sentosa Luge & Skyride and Songs of the Sea (pyrotechnic show).


Day 3 - Shopping at Orchard Road + Marina Bay

It's very clever to attend morning mass before going to shop at Orchard Road - because the Orchard Road shops don't open so early.

When you visit Marina Bay in the evening, try to be there before 8pm for 'Wonderfull' - the lights and water show offered free by Marina Bay Sands. If you miss the 8pm one, there's another one at 9.30pm.


Day 4 - City Centre Sights + Electronics Shopping

After seeing the historical landmarks in the city centre, head to Funan IT Mall (5-minute walk from City Hall MRT station). Funan has a good offering of electronics - and tends to have a better reputation for integrity and customer service that some of the shops at Sim Lim Square.


Day 5 - One or Two Sights Before Departure

With a 4pm departure, you could still take in one or two more sights before leaving for the airport. Consider Little India, including some last minute shopping at Mustafa Centre.


Have a good Singapore tour.
