Despite being the smallest country in Southeast Asia, Singapore has lots to offer to its visitors.
If you are planning a trip to Singapore, here are some places you can consider visiting to relax your mind and body.

Let the therapeutic sounds of the Rain Vortex, the world’s tallest indoor waterfall located at the heart of Jewel, sooth your mind.
Marina Bay Sands
One of the most popular choices for accommodation in Singapore is the luxurious Marina Bay Sands.
It features the world’s largest rooftop infinity pool that overlooks the city skyline from 57 storeys up – a great way to drive away all the stress.
Gardens by the Bay
Being outdoors is a great way for everyone to recharge their batteries. Gardens by the Bay is a large national garden that showcases stunning floral displays and garden artistry, including the iconic Supertrees.
The night scene at this captivating garden presents a stunning light show accompanied by music. It holds thematic events such as Singapore’s most popular year-end event – Christmas Wonderland at Gardens by the Bay.
Colourful luminaire lights transform the garden into a magical wonderland complete with Yuletide favourites and carnival fun for everyone.
Located south of Singapore is the Sentosa island. Relax by the shore along three beaches, explore the world’s largest aquarium and enjoy new experiences at Universal Studios Singapore.
Check out fine dining eateries at Quayside Isle situated in the exclusive Sentosa Cove and let the harbour view uplift your mood.
The Botanic Gardens is Singapore’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site and is undergoing further expansion to make way for more attractions in 2020. One of the newest attractions is the OCBC Arboretum, the first of its kind in Southeast Asia which houses more than 2,000 specimens of over 200 species of giant forest trees that can grow up to 80m tall.
An Internet of Things system is used for continuous monitoring of the trees and environment during their growth.
The Botanic Gardens is located within one kilometre from Concord International Hospital. There are many heritage trees at the Botanic Gardens, including the famous Tembusu tree that is found on the back of every Singapore five-dollar note.
Take a relaxing stroll around the garden and see if you can find the tree that is reportedly more than 170 years old! The tropical garden has an array of botanical and horticultural features, complemented with facilities that provide visitors educational and entertaining perspectives.
