I am based in Singapore.

Today, I decided to take some pictures of some of the landmarks here in Singapore. If you are going to visit Singapore, make sure you have your pictures taken with the below iconic structures.

As oppose to what other people are saying, Singapore is not a boring place to visit. There's actually tons of things you can do and see here. My pictures below, for example, these photos are taken only in the town area.

If you are going to visit these places, and you take the MRT, you can alight either on City Hall or Raffles Place station. But I really really recommend that you take the Raffles Place route going there and take City Hall when going back home. Here, you can walk along the Singapore river and pass by many restaurants, statues and the beautiful Fullerton Hotel.

In one single platform (where all the tourists are) you can see these iconic structures :

The Esplanade. It is a performance arts venue. I suggest you take a visit inside to see some art displays. And if you have time, watch world class stage performances (they have stage plays, concerts, etc). Walk around and discover free performances and art exhibition inside. And if you get hungry, they have a lot of restaurants at the lower level too.

The Merlion. Of course, when someone see this icon, they know it's Singapore! It has the head of a lion and the body of a fish. Don't you ever forget having your picture taken with it, else your friends will not believe that you visit Singapore :)

The Singapore Flyer. This is the tallest Ferris Wheel in the world! This is one of the best ways to see all of Singapore in panoramic view. Check out their website : for a full range of services they offer. I heard the services are really really good.

The Marina Bay Sands. I remember when my nephew saw it. He was amazed. The top part was modeled after a big boat. And it's on top of the three towers. Amazing! It is a hotel, a casino and a mall (luxury brands and best restaurants can be found here too!) I like it because it's modern and it's really different from all the other malls/hotels I've been to.

You can see all this in a platform along the Singapore River. All in one place. Be sure to take a visit! I suggest you bring along an umbrella (in Singapore, hot summer day or wet rainy day, the weather is unpredictable), always put on your sunscreen, wear your sunglasses and bring your  handy fan.

And before I end this post, remember I told you when you go home take the City Hall MRT? It will not only allows you to see The Esplanade up close but you might catch some free concert along the way. Lucky me, I did. Just a good way to relax before you head home.
