48 Hours in Singapore (Part Two)

There’s lots more to see and do here!

Check out the highlights of Day Two in Singapore in this short video:

“After a busy first day, it’s time to chill out a bit. Start your 2nd day in Singapore off with a leisurely stroll through the massive Botanic Gardens. Fun fact – it’s the only tropical garden in the world to be given UNESCO World Heritage status.

You may even spot some wildlife on your visit. With more than 150 years of history, it’s a major reason that Singapore is known as the City in a Garden. Spend your morning just wandering around the several different areas.

Having visited Chinatown on day one, it’s time to check out the city’s Little India neighborhood. While you’re here, you can visit a colorful Hindu temple. Surely you’re hungry by now. Thankfully this is the perfect place for lunch. Step into any market and take your pick from the countless stalls cooking up cheap, delicious Indian food.

Next up, it’s back downtown to admire the city’s architecture, both traditional and modern. You can check out a few museums as well, such as the Art Museum and the National Museum.

Nearby you’ll find Fort Canning Hill. It’s also known as the Forbidden Hill, as there’s a belief that the ancient kings of Singapore were laid to rest here and continue to haunt the place. You may not find any ghosts, but you will find a blend of historical relics, artwork, and lush greenery. It’s the perfect spot to relax after an action packed couple of days exploring Singapore.

Finally, you might as well complete the trifecta and visit the Arab Quarter. Highlighted by the stunning Sultan Mosque, it’s an interesting place to wander around for a bit. Here you can shop for Arabic clothing, pick up a Persian rug, and eat a schwarma.

On the walk back to your hostel, who knows what you’ll find… you may stumble upon a bustling street market. Finish your 48 hours in Singapore with a soak in a rooftop cold jacuzzi.”
