Discover Singapore 2013

Singapore, the place where I am born, raised, and currently reside in, has changed a lot over the years. From a humble beginning as a quiet fishing village, it has transformed into a vibrant and lively cosmopolitan metropolis. It is now a popular tourist destination and one of the best places to do business in the Southeast Asia region.

In this feature article, I will be talking about 5 latest and modern destinations in Singapore. Even as a local, I have yet to visit any of these destinations myself. Some day in the coming future (when I have excessive amounts of free time and money on my hands), I will bring my handy Canon EOS 600D DSLR camera for photo walks at these destinations.

Marina Bay Sands

"Marina Bay Sands® is a magnificent destination for entertainment, business and shopping, delivering once-in-a-lifetime experiences. This landmark building is situated in the heart of Singapore’s central business district. With a luxury hotel, state-of-the-art convention and exhibition facilities, theatres, and some of the best shopping and dining in the region, Marina Bay Sands® is an experience that indulges your every fancy." - YourSingapore

Located at the southern tip of the Singapore island, Marina Bay Sands is the 2nd and also the latest integrated resort to be completed. It is not just another hotel or casino but also a place of interest for shopping, dining, and also artistic performances for both local and international visitors to enjoy.

Gardens by the Bay

"Spanning 101 hectares, this award-winning horticultural attraction houses over 250 thousand rare plants and is just a five-minute walk from the city. The Gardens comprises three spaces—Bay South, Bay East and Bay Central. From the waterfront promenade, enjoy an amazing view of the Marina Bay financial district skyline. The grounds are perfect for an evening stroll and a picnic with loved ones." - YourSingapore

Located right next to Marina Bay Sands is a massive garden designed and developed with the look and feel of modernity and yet retains the serenity of nature. Flora from all walks of life are assembled in the same location, making it a one-stop haven for Flora enthusiasts or a casual nature trail for visitors who are just passing by.
