Socially, the LGBT community is widely accepted in most regions of Singapore and tourists are generally excluded from any kind of discrimination. Although discretion is recommended in cases where public displays of affection are shown, for the most part, tourists are always welcomed and supported.




Marina Bay & Marina by Sands

Marina Bay and Marina by Sands are the best known areas of the city. The Marina Bay area is located in the eastern part of Singapore and is part of the larger Downtown Core district, the historic center of the city where it is possible to visit some buildings dating back to the colonial period. The symbol of Marina Bay is undoubtedly the Merlion, a statue half fish and half lion almost nine meters high. But the real pivot of this neighborhood is certainly the Marina Bay Sands Resort, the skyscraper with a particular and unique design that encloses hotels, casinos, shopping centres, museums, theatres, restaurants, but above all the famous Infinity Pool top floor of the building. We strongly recommend visiting it at sunset to enjoy a breathtaking view!

Gardens by the Bay

Gardens by the Bay is one of the city's most popular attractions. They have an area of 101 hectares and inside it is possible to admire the vast species of plants but especially the Supertree Grove, or very large artificial trees ranging in size from 25 to 50 meters. In the evening it is even more fascinating when the latter light up the park with the Garden Rhapsody show, a kaleidoscope of colored lights (around 18:45 and 19:45 and lasts 15 minutes).

Singapore Flyer

The Singapore Flyer is the largest Ferris wheel in the world. It is located in the Marina Bay district and therefore offers breathtaking living and if you are lucky, sometimes even giving a view as far as Batam and Bintan in Indonesia and part of Malaysia.

ArtScience Museum

The Museum of Art and Science represents a combination of the world of arts and sciences. The peculiarity is undoubtedly the external structure of the museum which recalls the lines of a lotus flower with open petals. Inside you can admire many symbolic objects of human history. The complex protrudes over the waters of a swimming pool full of flowers and we advise you to stop and admire it from the outside as the sun goes down!

Arab Street & Little India

Arab Street is the Arab quarter of the city. Within this area you can enjoy a beautiful sunset by climbing the golden dome of the Sultan Masjid Mosque. This road borders Little India, the throbbing heart of the city's Indian community. Tip: 'get lost' in the alleys and admire the countless shops of fabrics, jewels and spices!

Orchard Road

Orchad Road is the most important shopping avenue and to be clear it is like walking down Fifth Avenue in New York!


Can we not visit the famous Chinatown? It is undoubtedly the area of Singapore inhabited exclusively by Chinese. Pagoda Street is the main street for buying souvenirs and gifts.

Jewel Chiangi Airport

Hanging trampolines, waterfalls and shops. Singapore airport is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful in the world! The state-of-the-art terminal has rightfully earned its name, Jewel. Hosting an abundance of shopping attractions and even the largest indoor waterfall in the world. From suspended trampolines to browsing through shops and boutiques, Jewel seamlessly mixes nature and fun. Don't miss: Rain Vortex, Shiseido Forest and Mirror Maze.

Clarke Quay

Clarke Quay is the heart of Singapore's nightlife. It is a complex of old river warehouses that have been restored to then create clubs, discos, and any other type of venue in which to have fun.

TRAVEL TIPS about SINGAPORE by World Mappers

  • The most frequent question we get asked is: How to get to Singapore? It's simple, you can take a direct flight (15 hours) only from Rome Fiumicino or Milan Malpensa with the company 'Singapore Airlines'. But clearly there are cheaper but longer solutions as they have a stopover.

  • How to move around the city? There are several ways and they always depend on your budget and comfort. If you love long walks we advise you to move on foot as Singapore is not as big as it might seem. Regardless of everything we advise you to avoid taking taxis because they are super expensive so in case you can use the subway or buses which are well organised.

  • With the 'Go City: Singapore All-Inclusive Pass' you get access to over 35 tourist attractions in Singapore and you can save time and money! It depends on how many days you will be staying but usually the price for two days starts from €170.00.

  • You don't need a tourist visa to visit Singapore, provided you don't stay more than 90 days. The only documentation required is the compilation of the 'electronic arrival card' which includes: a passport with at least six months of residual validity, a return ticket, proof of funds to allow you to enter the city and finally a card of credit.

  • Are any vaccinations necessary? The yellow fever vaccine is mandatory for all tourists over the age of 1 who, in the previous 6 days, have even transited for more than 12 hours at the airport of a country where yellow fever is at risk of transmission.

  • Watch out for fines! They are very salty if you don't respect some of their rules: no chewing gum, no smoking in the open air, forgetting to flush the toilet, eating or drinking on the subways, throwing waste on the floor, feeding the pigeons, cross where there are no pedestrian crossings. Some of these bans can cost you thousands of dollars in fines or, in extreme cases, even a few days in jail!

  • Not to be missed is the Fountain of Wealth, the largest fountain in the world and is located in the 'Suntec City' shopping center. It is even possible to enter the fountain, where you will find a sign with instructions to follow: "extend your arm inwards and make three laps around the center of the fountain, it will bring you luck".
