Hi Aftab

For you to enjoy the suggested itinerary below, you need a free Singapore city map. After clearing immigration checks at Singapore Airport, approach the Visitors' Centre and the staff there will be glad to give you the map(s).

So here's a suggested itinerary for your Singapore vacation:

Day 1 Afternoon & Evening:
Singapore Flyer, Singapore River Cruise & Walking Tour

a) Take a taxi to the Singapore Flyer.

b) After the ride, take walk to nearby Millenia Walk and Marina Square - both are malls with good shopping, including jewellery chains such as Lee Hwa, Gold Heart and Soo Kee.

c) Once done at Marina Square, cross the road and walk to the Esplanade Waterfront. Here, you'll find a jetty where you may start a Singapore River Cruise with the Hippo Tours Group.

d) Once you've got an overview of the Singapore River, it's time to see the spots close up on a self-guided Singapore River walking tour.

e) Have dinner at one of the restaurants at Boat Quay, Clarke Quay or Robertson Quay.

Day 2: Sentosa & Vivo City

Spend a day on Sentosa Island.

Because you'd like to shop at Vivo City, you need to forgo the evening portion of this Sentosa itinerary - leave Sentosa for Vivo City in the late afternoon or early evening, via the Sentosa Express train.

Day 3: Kampong Glam, Little India & Night Safari

a) Morning: Kampong Glam Malay-Arab Quarter

b) Afternoon: Little India

There are many jewellery shops in Little India, including Mustafa Centre and numerous shops on Serangoon Road.

c) Take a taxi and plan to arrive before 7pm for an enjoyable night at Singapore Night Safari.

Day 4: Botanic Gardens + National Museum

a) Start the day early with a leisurely stroll around the Botanic Gardens. Don't miss the National Orchid Gardens, which is located within the Botanic Gardens.

b) Bus or taxi to National Museum.

While working out this Singapore tour itinerary, I've tried to cluster nearby attractions together so as to minimise movement.

Have an enjoyable Singapore tour.
