Singapore’s two cruise terminals are well located, close to many of the city’s best tourist attractions. The Marina Bay Cruise Centre is just a short hop from the Singapore Flyer, the world’s tallest observation wheel, and a great place to take in 360-degree panoramic views across the city. Back at sea level, Singapore River Cruises run a fleet of traditional wooden bumboats that ferry tourists up the Singapore River to take in the sights of the Colonial District, Boat Quay, Clarke Quay and Robertson Quay. Jump aboard at the Merlion, just across the bay from the iconic Marina Bay Sands hotel.
The Marina Bay Sands complex itself is home to the fabulous ArtScience Museum, which plays host to an impressive lineup of travelling exhibitions and also the Marina Bay Sands casino, if you’re feeling lucky.
Just a ten-minute cab ride from Marina Bay, the Harbourfront Cruise Centre also has its share of top attractions on its doorstep. Take a scenic ride aboard the Cable Car across to Sentosa Island and make your way to Resorts World Sentosa, home to several hotels, numerous restaurants, and four of our top ten attractions.
If you are travelling with children, then Universal Studios with its movie-themed rides and rollercoasters, and Marine Life Park, featuring the world’s largest aquarium and a water park with water slides and wave pools, should both be top of your list.
If all that sounds too energetic, then head to the ESPA spa for a few hours of pampering and relaxation amidst the tropical landscaping, and enjoy the vitality pools, Japanese onsen and Turkish Hammam.
