Sorting Out Singapore: 2-1/2 Day Intinerary

Jump to last reply

I am trying to figure out the best use of time for our visit to Singapore in July. We are staying at the Intercontinental (Club Floor). Here is my take on what might work (please read the notes at the end of this post):

Sunday afternoon (flight arrives late morning):
Asian Civilizations Museum 2 PM tour
Raffles Hotel/St Andrews Cathedral/Huan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple
Dinner where? (want to do one hawker center and one good restaurant)
Night Safari

Monday:
Botanic/orchid gardens
Tanglin Shopping Center
Another museum (Peranakan, Modern Art or National)?
Chinatown (temples, Chinatown complex)
Dinner where? (want to do one hawker center and one good restaurant)

Tuesday:
Singapore Zoo
Little India/Mustafa Centre
Another museum (Peranakan, Modern Art or National)?
Dinner at hotel (hors on club floor - very early am departure)

I'm thinking it might be nice to squeeze in a 30 minute river cruise from Clarke's Quay (rhkkmk did this) at some point and do the Singapore Flyer at sunset.

For scheduling purposes, note that we usually return to the hotel for cocktails before going out to dinner and other activities. We snack during the day but we do not normally eat at a restaurant at lunchtime as breakfasts tend to be huge.

I know that the zoo and the night safari are next to each other but the zoo closes at 6 pm and the night safari opens at 7:30 pm. I also know that there is a restaurant open for dinner before the night safari but I'm not sure I would want to eat out there with so many other options.

For what it's worth, we will have spent 10 days in Kuching, Langkawi and Penang, Malaysia prior to staying in Singapore so not really looking to take in a lot more Malaysian culture, unless it's something truly unique.
