5 Best Day Trips from Singapore

Singapore’s Best One Day Tours

Popular Singapore day trips include trips to Malaysia and Indonesia. Sitting in Southeast Asia on the Singapore Strait, the island nation of Singapore is a dynamic destination—a place where grand colonial architecture and intricate Taoist temples meet futuristic skyscrapers and elaborate outdoor art. Nearly everything you could need can be found inside the city, yet its proximity to other exciting locations only adds to its appeal. If visiting Singapore, don't miss your chance to travel out of town on an action-packed or relaxing day trip to nearby spots including Indonesia or Malaysia.

    While technically still part of Singapore, Sentosa Island just off the coast offers fun-filled attractions to delight the whole family.

Here, take in jaw-dropping views of the skyline from the height of 430 feet (131 m).

Continue on to a bird sanctuary to make some brightly feathered friends and then pass by an excellent site to spot island deer and freshwater fish. Your guide then leads you into the jungle for a nature walk along the Sebung River. Here, in the enchanting mangrove forest, learn all about the plants and animals that call the landscape home before boarding the boat for a relaxing ride back to Singapore. Read More...
