Gems of Singapore That Should Be At The Top of Your List

Fulfilling your bucket list, you must make that experience the most awesome possible. You must utilize the counted days very productive and worth the wait. You must search for the best destinations, tourist spots and even places to discover. You must prepare your OOTDs, know what to expect and of course estimate your budget.

Presented below are what I consider the gems of Singapore. Click each link to find out what made them so and hopefully you would be able to witness their magnificence personally.


Our start location is at Bugis Station. From here, take the EastWest Singapore MRT line towards “Joo Koon Station”. Then change at “Outram Park” for the NorthEast MRT line towards “Harbourfront”.


The easiest way to get here via public transport is to take the MRT on the North-South (Red) line and transit to Ang Mo Kio then ride the connecting public bus services. Catch the connecting public bus No. 138 that will take you right to the park. Public bus station is in the shopping mall called Ang Mo Kio Hub located opposite the MRT station.


The Merlion.

Walking on Jubilee Bridge, behind is The Durian.

Right beside the bridge, you will find the Bougainvillea Lane at Esplanade, Singapore.

From Raffles Place MRT Station, we walked to Merlion Park and found these epic structures:

Raffles Place Structure.

Right across Merlion Park, from a general post office building to a five star luxury hotel, The Fullerton Hotel.

Tall Tree in the Eye. Seen in different places around the world like ‘The Thinker’. By renowned sculptor Anish Kapoor, made of 29 polished stainless steel spheres that seem to float skywards.

Momentum. A big red Christmas tree at Finlayson Green Road, the shortest road in Singapore.

Singapore Soul. Diverse ethnic symbol. Multilingual sculpture. Composed of 4 official language writings/scripts of sg: Chinese, English, Malay and Tamil.


Art Science Museum and Marina Bay Sands.

From Merlion Park, we underestimated the distance to Marina Bay Sands and we walked to Bayfront. We had our baons, biscuits and soft drinks that we bought for $1 each at Chinatown. Despite these, we still looked for water. Hurray for Starbucks for being our savior! Thank you for the service water, we stayed alive! 😂


On our third day, it’s time to go home but before that, we didn’t let the chance to roam around the street and to visit a foreign church pass.


Don’t have a bucket list yet? Make one now and list traveling goals! It does not hurt to dream of going to other places. It even gives you drive to wake up each day and a purpose to live.
